because they are all made by me , and i only play SP . they work fine for MP too , the only difference is that some of them can be improved with some realm-only items in end game (secret SU'S / realm only runewords )

Is your Trolling Necro really viable for Uber and End game?
I feel like the huge amount of teleport will sent me in a bad place and I will die.
I'm still working on the Gamma Field Sorceress, but I'm stuck in the Terror act 2 so I'm not sure how good it can be.

he is good enough even with not all of the end game gear . being able to jump with AoD makes it quite safe in many (considered dangerous) spots . all that jumping helps at spreading poison damage all over the screen , and all you need is to kill 2 or 3 to get the proc chain "after kill" started . indeed sometimes you can get raped if teleported in some spots , but unless it's a duncraig barrels under your feet , you won't have to worry. he's quite safe . every time it gets hit it goes to a new spot , and surviving that one hit is quite easy , as the build has decent ammounts of HP , avoid and some damage reduction .

i was thinking about adding a miniguide for it a few days ago . i've played it for a while myself because i was curious on how would it handle the game compaired to the assassin Meteor shower build and the results are quite good :


in early-mid game she make up for less points into meteor shower (compaired to the assassin) by using Firedance , bloodlust (
Circe
Circe
Sorceress Orbs

'Amn'
Runeword Level: 25
+(11 to 15)% to Lightning Spell Damage
+(11 to 15)% to Poison Spell Damage
+1 to Bloodlust
(11 to 15)% Bonus to Energy
+1 to All Skills when using an Apple
on switch gear) +motw from act 5 merc , and that's good enough . she makes up for assasin't Cluster mine by using Gamma field + Nova Charge + familiars (they deal decent damage by their own + they also boost your damage with "+ skills" and extra energy) . she's at least as good as the assasin imo , you just need to pass the early game faster (untill you can roll a helm with Meteor Shower) , and for that you can use Apocalypse . if time allows it , i'll be adding the miniguide soon .

Thank you very much for your info, It will help a lot.

Adding hard points in the familiar also helps a lot since I,m using a lot of Oskill. Bloodlust give a nice free boost on switch, I end up 105K-403k poison damage with Gamma field and the familiar damage is not bad for the poison immune. I just need to gear up the Barbarian merc so he doesn't die during Uber if its possible.

Not sure about the Mid/Late game items. I tried to play with Meteor storm, but it was a bit too random to my taste. Do you have a couple of good choices for me (Except the Sorc Armor with Xis run cause I already know)

100K views in 1 year from a playerbase that is now down to just 1/4 , compaired to 1.f9b / 2012 . i'd say "not bad" considering that the miniguides were all updated to Ultimative only since april . For now i'll also be in "stand-by mode" , like the most of those inactive players lurking the forum , untill we will get our hands on Sigma
i want a new colour for my views/popularity badge

In reality the ultimative forums visitor record is 3.5 times higher compared to the cMXL forums and the total number of users is only about 33% lower here even though this forum has only existed for a little of a year (and we have no bots registered, unlike the olden days), compared to the 5 years of the forumer ones. Even now over a month and a half after a ladder reset we get more visitors daily than the record in forumer days.

The player base is higher than ever.
