Imo its not worth it too go for the Endgame Gear, only if you wanna do bosses/Scosglen but if you just want too farm Fautz/Duncraig,
the Set is very nice and low budget :) next time I probably start SSF on Singleplayer with the Light Sorc and farm gear for other builds / cold sorc maybe, because cold seems broken.

You will have more dmg and more pierce with the Endgame stuff but you need too afford alot.

cold spec with zann esu set is kinda the same- https://median-xl.com/acc/snapshot.php? ... 1631783363

currently farming fauzt- its easy with 1-2 players game, but from 3+ players i take too much dmg (i tried also light until 137). im kinda disappointed, cuz i thought that i could tank much more(in bigger player games) with melee devotion and 50% phys res

tried first steps in scosglen and i was kinda insta dead. so the spec doesnt really matter, you will need endgame ssu/sssu for surving scosglen (and ubers).

maybe poison is superior, as you can just kite back and it poss works also with mid gear setup in scosglen.

€dit: found ghostmoon today in fauzt, also got lunar eclipse, black dwarf and witchmoon. guess i would give light another try if i can get 80% of the endgame stuff; but it seems that posion is stronger, even than cold - in the other sorc poison thread, there is already one guy who killed sam with posion spec.

i watched some cold sorc twitch stream from player morph_YEP (#7 sorc) and he got destroyed at Sam, even with whole endgame gear.

guess the best play is to have 1 farm char for easy a130 (up to sssu's)/fauzt like cold/light sorc with 200%mf+ and then xp a 2nd char for a135/scosglen and endgame ubers

Well, better do not invest into late game gear imo. Stay In fauzt with your set items and full MF in sockets. It's atleast good character to MF there.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=afaeIYL8vnI doing some Scosglen, not sure if I am allowed too post it here but should be fine tho.

And I agree, just use low budget too farm Fautz / buy your charms if you want, or play SSF and prepare for other builds / bossfights.

The Endgame is more Damage, more Pierce and you can still get 50% DR and 90% Max Res, 5% Magic Res, 9k+ Life.

You really need the Endgame stuff for Bossfights and Scosglen.
(well if you are really pro, you can maybe kill bosses with zero deads but it will take ages)
without 170% pierce and with elemental set, etc.

What's a good setup for Fauzt? I can do it without MF with lightning set but it feels like if I swap lightning runes for ist and nor tiraj for Lilith's belt I lose too much clearspeed, I can still do it no doubt but not sure if it's worth it at that point.

I think it's a little... poor, right? My socket is

So what is my problem?

Be sure that you got 2100 Energy with Raven only, well its fine if you have it with Raven + Nova but sometimes your Nova isnt active or for Astrogha you shoudlnt use Nova.

Be sure that you have 1000 Spell Focus, be sure that you have all + SK from Charms / max rolls on Gear / etc.
Be sure that you have specced into the right Skills (like Specialization)

Just MO 2% Light DMG aka 4x = 10% each Item, MO Manareg%, Life After Kill, and fill the others with Spell Focus maybe.
Get Jewels with 4% Light DMG and maybe with Flat Life / Energy % / All Atributes % / FHR % / Spell Focus.

Avatar is not great for Damage but easy too get imo, well its good if you cant get the pierce value, also if you cant get the pierce value use Nor Tiraj instead of Lunar.

If I had some TG I would probably buy Zann Esu Stones, (Unique Jewel) with 3% Spell Dmg & +1% max res too x Ele, would prob fill them untill I got 90 All Res and I would Lotto Blackdwarf for 5% Magic Res, my stats would be like this:

Around 9000 Hp, 10000 Mana, 50% Physical Reduce, 90% All Res, 5% Magic Reduce, 130k+ Def / 122% Psn Length Reduce / 12 flat Phys Reduce / etc.

+3 Fork or 6-10% Light Damage Relics or the +1 Skill Jewel are maybe very nice, I dont see any good MOs for Light Sorc, it also means we can use less normal MOs right, because of the Lvl Req, so its prob not a benefit or slightly, if we use the 5% Spell DMG MO for example.

Thank for the reply. But I think your suggestion just for the defense right? Even with good jewels it still has low damage compare to the Lightning set (just tankier and more pierce). With the Lightning set I can reach 11k damage with bloodlust and firedance :bounce:
