Yeah you had to. They can't be unsocketed so there isn't much you can do about it apart from getting an other one.

My apologies on this. Caster sorceress is good in Toraja so basically it could be worse. Make sure to read the documentation before using/modifying something that expansive.

For the midgame fire sorc, you recommend eerie crafted + fascinating blessed gear, but in the lategame, you recommend just fascinating crafted. Is there a reason for this?

The reason is you'll have enough synergy in the radiance setup, but lack pierce. Even in full gear with max fire pierce roll on every single listed item, you still won't reach 170 pierce. The only way to reach 170 pierce is with Kab

I don't remember flamestrike but flamefront can break 50k with the radiance setup, with barely 170 pierce. This requires near perfect rolls on gear and good charms, as well as smax farmiliar with

Hey guys,

I'm currently playing poison sorc and i'm struggling killing Inarius in the void (It feels like i do no dmg - i barely reduce his life to 80% before i die or lilith dies).

Would you recommend changing build (like fire with flamestrike) or improving my stats/gear and my knowledge of the fight ?

My build : https://tsw.vn.cz/acc/char.php?name=Glacette

Looks ok for the most part. Can craft better gear and jewels and get rid of the runes there, which will get you more syngergy and psd. Also 109 HR is enough so you can once again lose some runes. About the Void, yea dying is expected, especially if you stand near the blood pool for too long as it weakens both you and Inarius. Try putting an edyrem or too there to stop inarius for a second while you get away from the pool. But you have enough dmg to kill him. Only need some practice.
