. Ditched the set at that point, didnt have Lahma but used shimmering crafted gloves. Replacing Astrogha set is next step, but that's a bit harder to do. I'm at 160 poison pierce now, which is nice improvement over set.


omg big thanks. I just realize that ven is the poison rune LOL.

I swapped outa the set tonight with every "upgrade" piece and to me it feels infinitely worse in almost every way than wearing the set.
Survivability took a huge hit and damage is almost half (sheet dps)/ though you do gain way more pierce.
I'm wondering if anyone else has felt the same way/have you tried all the upgrade gear or is this just a theorycraft.
Thanks

i did also the transition to endgame gear,

here is my char: https://median-xl.com/acc/snapshot.php? ... 1632085546

dmg of lorenado is -20K around, but i got +90% poison pierce round about and also the benefits ov vaetia's wall, and so on.

i guess i didnt optimize the str/dex stuff, as you can see that i put points into str too and dex in order to be able to hit the dex/str req.

im also now on 25% phys res instead of 50% with the set and around 550 spell fokus, but im also missing

- indigo, lam gloves, spirit walker.

also- mystic orbs are also with +15% mf, cuz this is my current gear for farming fauzt (and scosglen too i guess, because now i should have enough dmg through pierce).

i guess the easiest way is to have around 200% mf at least and then use dmg mystic orbs like spell fokus and poison spell dmg.

my current helmet helps with 30% mf until i have indigo/trade Un rune


any advices for upgrades besides the obvious ones?

- you could craft some boots instead of using rabbit foots
- try getting the Tran Athulua Trophy for 5% Physical Resists
- pick up the Physical Resist Skill on the Mastery Tree for another 5%
- you are probably going to want to swap our your armor ASAP
- you should really mystic orb Spell Focus and Poison Spell Damage
- you could make a Wormhole with Life/Mana and Energy
- To boost survivability you are going to want to reach near max breakpoints and squeeze in defense as much as possible
- the guide is based off what DatDudeJay was running and his playthrough. the items listed in End Game are what he used in Scosglen. it definitely works 100%.
- I don't think you should really opinionate that it doesn't work. you don't have all the end game gear requirements to even make it work in the first place.

thanks for quick reply!

my current gear was used for having ~200% mf and still do some dmg; i just did some scosglen and it's working- this shouldnt be a negative post xD

boots- yes it depends if shimmering boots are better dmg wise than rabbit's

i already got 25% phys res- 20% vengeful power and 5% mastery tree

armor: u advised venefica in the first place for endgame gear, then swapped to guard, i guess since yesterday or so;-) but i have this item too

wormhole: is realdy in inv, but not max lvl

- surv. - yes, e.g. guard armor

Like you and loreth, the build flattened out - but for me it was in early hell. It was getting worse for a while though, through late NM.


At level 105 I even farmed up the 105 charms on my main, gave it
Gravetalon
Gravetalon
Clasped Orb (Sacred)

One-Hand Damage: 39 to 41
(Sorceress Only)
Required Level: 100
Required Dexterity: 188
Item Level: 105
Dexterity Damage Bonus: (0.11 per Dexterity)%
You Cannot Summon Ice Elementals Directly
20% Chance to cast level 35 Ice Elementals on Kill
+(5 to 6) to Sorceress Skill Levels
+25% Bonus to Poison Skill Duration
-(25 to 30)% to Enemy Cold Resistance
-(25 to 30)% to Enemy Poison Resistance
+1 to Ice Elementals
Poison Length Reduced by 50%
33% Curse Length Reduction
Cannot Be Frozen
Socketed (2)
and it still struggles. I end up swishing Arachnomancy across packs since lorenado takes too long to kill things.

It was an interesting mini project, I think I'll park it for now, maybe it would work to convert to lightning for 25 levels or so if I get some time to play it again.

Hello everyone and the author,

Can someone please suggest me a variant of gears which maintain a decent pierce and also mf to farm fauzt/scos? Thank you so much!
