In Character details panel, Glacial Torrent is listed without any attack rating. I think it means it is guaranteed to hit, like vanilla Paladin's Smite (shield bash). Am I right?

yea when opening character details panel it doesn't show an AR listed below. i assume it doesnt need any AR. probably just needs Attack Speed.

Could be wrong but I believe your damage always hits with Glacial Torrent, meanwhile LOMA/MOMA goes through AR checks.

wouldn't consider it mega budget, but definitely interesting. :) takes some investment and effort to make it work, but once it works, it works like a charm! clearing dunc/fauzt/vizjun/ scosglen has issues cus i dont have life on attack yet, but slaps hard. trying to farm like 4x farnham lost marbles and a duncraig trophy to put on my sleep charm. should solve most of the life problems. other than that its nice especially now with all the new passives for melee and melee devotion.

* maybe new guide

How can loma/moma be any good with like only 10k AR.. ? tried it and I think it's pretty unreliable, at least in labs lol.. so not sure if wasting 4 UMO slots is worth it for farnhams. That's quite some sf which you lack using curandera and lab setup anyways, or 20% extra sd

Not sure why would use curandera over hellfire plate. Unrelated to cold sorc. So why would we need sf for elemental melee sorc.. We are talking about two different kind of builds here elemental melee vs cold sorc

Oh, that's my bad. Didn't read that it's about melee sorc. Forget that comment then as it was regarding cold "caster" sorc.
