yea, adding 5x LL on Attana -----> 2x Zan Esu Jewels in there or Crafted Jewels ----->
Arcane Hunger
Arcane Hunger
Occult Effigy

Cube Reagent
Cube with a One Handed Weapon
with at least 15% Life Leech to Add Bonus
All Life Leech transformed to +25% Spell Damage
Item Cannot be Unsocketed
(Max 1 Use per Item)
+10 Required Level
( this is the reason for adding LL ) - you need 15% LL in order to gain access to the 25% Spell damage


LL for sorc - what is it? +Life after each Kill or another?
I', cant find it.

Hi, thanks for the guide, I had already started a lightning build but there's plenty of useful tips that work for both.
I see on your video against Quov Tsin that you cast your minions. I'm having trouble with him, especially with His Soulstealer ability. I Wonder if it's better to lure his beam with them (but then he heals), or go there alone (but then I spend my time avoiding the tri elemental skipping rope of death).
Of course I'm aware that I need to get more max res...
Thanks!

Nice! Glad you enjoy the build.
- the trick behind using Abyss is , not spamming the skill on top of the bosses, but instead you need to aim Abyss using the blue mist that surrounds the blue frozen orb. (Ill try uploading a demonstration later today)

It all really depends on the type of sorc ur playing, depends on the skills.

- the easiest solution is just using pgems to gain max resist . you need 90% light/fire/cold i think? Or witchhunters and wheel of fortune TU ofc.
- another option is, maybe try using edyrems instead of ice elementals
- maybe doing a skills swap just to get ice elementals for that uber
- maybe even setup an act 2 shape shifter mercenary with max resist to help tank damage. ( not sure if this would actually work, gonna test it )
- as for his soulstealer agility just try to stay from a distance if u have a skill that can be spammed from a distance, this would help alot.

yea i was thinking of more of using the edyrems to redirect the trinity beam for a brief second to give you enough time to throw a couple spells in before he goes after u again.

Hello, level 107 now

Enjoying the build quite a bit.

i am currently farming nightmare nihlathak for signets of learning + sacred uniques, what else am I supposed to do? I am a little slow in progressing through hell, only 45% pierce atm.

- Focus on leveling to 110 and getting your 105-110 Charms and 400 Signet of Learnings.
- You should switch things up and farm Torajan Jungles for Signet of Learnings. They drop more often and quite a lot too.
- As for your pierce, not sure what items you are using atm, but if they are TU's and all upgraded to T4's that should help
- If not that, you need to get some Thai Runes. * you can downgrade Runes (put them in the cube and transmute). On Runes are best for this, or you can simply pick up Rha Runes and Downgrade those.


Let me know if it works out for you :) .

1) very clear, will do asap
2) ok sure thanks
3) all tiered uniques, a couple are only tier3 because of strength/dex requirements
4) I will employ more thai runes in the gear, i still have Thul's and energy/dex/strength runes which are bad.

I feel like with signets of learning I will free up stats and consequently slots to improve the amount of Thai Runes i will put inside my gear, and consequently my damage.

Hi there!
I've seen u changed SorcGOD build. You just leave vengeful power (poison tree) to put on lightining (warp armor), is this better?
