So I'm using valthek's and pretty legit gear for my mana sorc, according to this build. In a sample video of someone using mana sweep, they're clearing duncraig with one or two clicks of mana sweep. I can literally sit next to one slain soul and cast mana sweep for 5 minutes and he takes no damage. Can someone explain why my mana sweep doesn't do damage?

One more question: What would I want to socket my Valthek's with? I had 6 sur's in there for 90% mana regen, but being as I don't necessarily want mana, should I go with damage reflected or +vita?

you def want more mana because it in creases the damage of every Arcane Spell. At the same time you want to have a decent amount of Mana regen to be able to spam Immersion or Mana Sweep (Valthek) when low on Mana after using Antimass. Next thing you have to look for is Cast speed. At least 6 frames per cast (86 cast speed) should be the goal on Valthek if not even 5 (@ 194).

So, I currently have 25k mana. My regen really isn't the problem at this point. Since I took out the 6 Sur's from the Valthek, it didn't make much of a difference at all with 25k mana. The whole point of my build is to have low mana for using mana sweep as a damage skill. That being said, would I want to socket the staff with jewels/runes that give me other "stats?"

Since Mana/ene scaling was increased last patch I would socket it with UM Runes (5% energy) to increase the mana pool - aka damage, but only if all other Breakpoints (cast speed and hit recovery ) are reached

Is there somewhere on the forum that has the breakpoints?
