I also found that early levels putting 4x P ruby's + MO 10 LAEK on the staff is a major survivability factor. I got lucky with TU's as I went and found the staff and Moon Wrap. Made the rest through acts 3-5 and farmed Nith a few times to get other pieces.
Overall, levels 1-50 supppppppppper smooth.
I will give another update as I venture through nightmare.



Went from Act 1-5 Nightmare without a problem. Updated TU's to T3 except Staff (TU4).
Again, no issues, was really smooth. Mana issue when spamming Arach. Spell.
Found a relic with -6 psn res.
I am really enjoying the lorendo spell with how much aoe it has. Its smooth while walking.
Now level 94 think. I will start to transition into set.

Scratch that SSF if you have a relic and the set waiting.

I found the relic while leveling and yes, I suppose no longer SFF. I will transfer into the 2 set pieces I have once I am able.
I also was gift a bunch of end game items from a friend to test the build once I am able.

Hello,

I finally made my first char to 125, been a casual player since 1.8, but it is the first time I got a decent equipment and understood the craft mechanism.
Started as a fire sorc, but hit the wall on Kabraxis, then I respected to poison and it was a blast. Kurast/Dunc farm in shortest time possbile.
Now Fautzt destroys me, it is not too bad with the elementals and merc, but slow, harpies are usually killed with a single target click. Desync usually + crowd usually leads to gg. Will be glad to hear some advices on furtther improvements.

where are your points in covens? 0 defenses other than a bit of phys resist of course you can't take a hit

-10 symbol of esu -1 arachnomancy -1 specialization +12 into snow queen (24 Warp Armor is arguably better value than the elementals because of bouncing and piercing attacks in there, or you could run 25 Living Flame; take the extra points out of Raven Familiar if you choose one of those)

Thanks! I tried Warp armor for 20 avoid but it did not make much difference vs the elementals.
Probably worth swapping from elementals to living max living flame and warp armor?

Warp armor also provides defense which does matter a lot in Fauzt as everything sans bosses attacks in there. For the same reason you have to pump Snow Queen also. But you are getting ahead of yourself, first farm Teganze for runes and potentially strong runewords, while filling out the treasure. Fauzt is quite a gear check, especially for non-WDM users.

If you don't need the cast speed, Acid Blood also doesn't impose a MS penalty. The life on enemy kill isn't bad, either. Seems situational.
