Sure, but I just noticed the difference. Last season judgement day for instance I got the upgraded charm the first try at lvl120.
This time it took a couple of tries at lvl 125. Similar gear.

i remember last season when i tried doing them all right when they opened, it required too much effort compared to leveling an extra 10 levels or so and going back in and just obliterating them. i do assume the str requirements kinda nerfs the damage a bit but im sure you can replace the loss of energy with spell focus or spell damage jewels.

Not sure what your gear is, but fauzt seems easier this time round.
Entered it at 125 with absolutely crap mixmatched gear and I really have to fuck up badly to die.
I don't even have the full set yet :P.

you could try swapping skill trees. but from what i can tell your current skill tree looks a lil wonky. you could try dropping warp armor for Vengeful Power, or drop ice elementals for melee devotion

Thanks. I'll try fixing my tree and see where it takes me.

Just follow the early game part of the guide and you'll be good, upgrade items as you find better ones.
Dunc is way more dangerous to farm imo until you get to the point of one hitting the mobs.

is it worth of the all tis hassle ? restitution ad all... ??? Especially for cold sorc ofc, I've heard that frozen orb oskil isn't that impressive.

Actually - this weapn for sorc is a kind of pointless -many cold sklii tree requirements are "needs a scepter or orb" but Wintry qualifies as a STAFF.
