Ele Druids are gettin easier and easier for me, they are too slow to even catch up to you. THe best way to beat em is get Act 1 merc like you said but dont use WF, use open wounds. Mercs, especially act 1, are way too weak to do some real damage, so I suggest open wounds, and it works wonders. I just tele and they get sick of it and give or i kill em, make sure you kill his summons with orb so your merc's arrows HIT him instead of the summons.
Act 1 Merc (Dont even bother Levelin it from Norm, waste of time and its only like +100 life? + You only use it against ele druids so Its pointless)
-Riphook (35% open wounds, Shael it if you want)
-Duress or Toothrow (33% and 40% respectively)
-CoA? I really dont even use a helm, I think i use a useless valk wing lol, get a helm with some resists or something.
Oh yea the trapper problem I THOUGHT i had, hahaha I dueled 3 l337 trappers with God gear and crushed em all, they beat me 3v1 though :yep:
Iono I'm gettin bored of my e-shield sorc owns too many people (not even joking) and its *** because its so hard to beat absorbers/stackers. Now that im in a clan and clan regulations are to duel in nm, its even worse for me. OH WELL, IM THINKIN ABOUT MAKIN A TRAPPER OR KEEPIN MY ORBER you help me choose, heehe.
I decided to make one these sorcs, reminds me of the ol 1.09 sorc that tanked everything! Barbs would WW empty on you, even with eth bug rune. This new sorc is alot of fun, but I starting to realize that trappers will never be beat, light sorcs just as dangerous. These high output attacks just wreck the mana, and I'm sure one stream of lighting hits more than one time itself like the gloams do.
The only thing I was concerned with was going agaisnt zons. You need that dex, for max block. Doesn't matter how much mana you have. And Bnet is so laggy right now that tele skills are really screwed, but I'm a tank kind of person. And what the hell is this sorc for, then to tank? So I just sit down in front of zon and see whos tougher. The zons dodge agaisnt my mana. Zon wins cause of my occy limited orb. A fathom 1k plus orb though? I like my chances.
The great thing about this sorc is that it reduces all enemies damage by 32%. Just the fact that you are a ES sorc, makes 32% of their damage erased before its even released.
I'll give 1 main objection why not to built FO PvP sorc...
black cloack luna shield nulify effect ANY damage of FO... you simply wont able do any damage.
As far as I know only blizzard able deliver more or less visible damage in PvP (because of first icicle bug) - aka first hit cannt be absorbed same true for orb but compare 1500 (before PvP/resistance) from shard of orb with 14K per icicle (before PvP/resistance) from blizzard.
Second objection against orb - is fact that its extremely sensitive to targeting while blizzard you can drop and foget about it - you need be in very certain position and distance in order to make FO do full damage (up to 14 shards per target)
