The ManaMoma Guide

Introduction

First guide ive ever written... However ive taken this character from lvl 1 to 148+ as an arcane sorc this season(2.6). It could mostly done SSF as well.

This build is a great allarounder - the starting spec(arcane torrent) is a bit slower on the farm side compared to other classes, however the single target is fantastic. The mana sweep spec done with the staff/boots is an excellent farmer with great single target - however a bit squishier

Pros

    Can be played easily as solo self found.
    Simple scaling vectors - mana and +sorc/allskills
    Destroy everything in the early game.
    Easy going through hell and the early challenges
    can do all content in the set
    Mana shield is incredibly strong
    Most trophies are not helpful for your build, which saves you a ton of time!

Cons

    Lots of Buttons
    Simple scaling vectors - limits gearing options
    the set is BIS(limited sense of progression)
    UMOS(zayls/apples of discord) pseduo required for some later content
    mana shield falls off when your at zero mana and you have to watch your buff icons... Mana shield off = most likely dead
    have to play around buffs

IMPORTANT - none of the mana skills on arcane sorc scale with spell damage or spell focus so these stats can be ignored! Literally for arcane torrent/immersion, the higher the slvl and mana pool the better! Mana has better scaling on damage compared to skill levels generally speaking!

Better to farm with Cham/Energy runes instead of Ist?
