I thought having a pierce like that would suck real bad in fauzt. Thanks for the info mate :)

I used triune trophy for 15% all stats, imo it's one of the best ones right now. Alternatively, you can use kabraxis for 10% pierce to free up some slots for jewels or runes, yshari for 15% spell damage. Budget version is veiled prophet, lots of spell focus and it's easy to farm.

Hey, like it was said, lilith belt, mf rings, maybe wormhole. For scos, I don't think it's worth to mf there, runes are not affected by mf, so I just use high max res and damage setup.

with sorc poison set, fauzt felt kinda easier, even though i had ~60% pierce instead of 153% pierce with sort of end game gear (last page my post), because i had also 50% phys res instead of 25% and 20% avoid dmg with the set (im playing with fire dance instead of warp armor)

as SSSU like Fire Hydra, Spirit Walker, Lamha, Henchmen Set, Dementia, ... can also drop in Fauzt because its A130 and enchanted runes aren't affected by %MF - a full dps/def gear setup would make more sense? if it doesnt really matter, if youre farming fauzt or scos for uniques/sets or?

if scosglen has any advantages for farming sssu's besides enchanted runes (especially the expensive ones like Yham for Vision and so on), then MF gear setup would make more sense.

Also - Venefica vs Adamantine Guard ?

I plan to swap into poison as soon as i get the set in hell, i have most of the pieces waiting already. The main reason i want to make this character is because i want to see how good it is at boss killing. i want to see how fast and easy i can clear uldy / ascended riftwalker / astrogha / the void with just the mid game set gear. if it seems really strong i may make it as a charm farmer early next season. I feel like for leveling to 140 and farming fauzt, lightning will probably be better. however, this build is super super cheap to get going early season, like one of the cheapest ever. and it should still be very viable all the way to 140 with just the set gear, so it can be great for new players. like i said i am mostly just interested in the boss farming potential though.

to me poison sorc is an awfull boss killer,maybe im doing something wrong but its slow,with the set i do almost the same damage as with RUs and SUs.
BUT,poison sorc is an excellent farmer,full dunc 6min,full fauzt 22~min with just the set

you need 175% pierce and 210% poison skill duration and 300 % spell damage to notice the difference. Arachnomancy isnt in the best spot right now. trying to find another skill to kill bosses with, but tbh it gets alot better once you get 175% pierce.

iirc you need 170% pierce outside labs and 160% for uldy / astrogha.
