    T&E's -Dreaming in infinity BearSorc [Final Draft]

    Tallbird's & Epheira's -Dreaming in infinity BearSorc-

    This guide is about a really fun build.
    BearSorcs do insane damage, and are funny to look at. Get the items below and just hack and slash away.
    This is a PVM build only.
    It basically is a sorc that uses her lightning mastery and enchant to do insane dmg, whilst in bear form.

    I may get the comment 'Why spirit monarch and no dream monarch ?'
    6shael PB doesnt add the STR that beast does



    Enough for Spirit shield (calculate it with torch, beast and anni +str) u need 156.
    Beast on switch gives a good str boost too, so good calculation is needed.

    Enough for Phase Blade (136 after +stats)
    You can never get good block rate with a sorc so not worth putting more pts in it

    Level 21 Cyclone Armor (30 Charges)

    Tal Rashas mask or eth Vampire Gaze

    Eth stone armor or eth upped Shaft or eth Fortitude if u feel u lack dmg...

    With full warmth you dont need insight, by the way, infinity is key to the build


    4x Light skillers (Get dext or frw mods)
    Small charms with = life, frw,...
    Faster run walk is pretty handy because u cannot teleport
    AR charms if u feel u hit too less, but u hit very fast so this shouldnt be a lot of trouble

    With this setup u have reached the bp of 62 FCR (on switch for teleporting) and a pretty good FHR bp, if u feel your fhr is bad, get some fhr charms



    Fairly simple, precast all (Shiver, Enchant, ES) in town(not bear of course) and teleport both with switch for the +skills and fcr from spirit. Bear shift where u need kills, and switch to main weapon. Hack away... Not much time needed to kill enemies anywhere, believe me !!
    ! You can't use any other skills apart from a standard attack while in bear form.
    ! Your infinity merc is vital to this build, if your merc dies on hell you will have trouble. The most difficult area for this sorc is diablo on hell due to the iron maiden killing your merc (as you yourself do so little physical dmg you don't need to worry about it much), on norm and nm your aura will kill things before you get near them so it doesn't pose as much of a problem.
    Travincal on hell multiplayer can also be a problem for the same reason as I find my merc can die quite easily if I don't keep an eye on him. Learn the shortcut to give your merc healing potions! (Shift + 1,2,3,4 or shift + right click potion)

    If u do hell baalruns for lvl boosting, be sure to wear your whisp projector because those gloams HURT!

    The only bad thing about this build is item dependancy (that goes with not being able to make kills untill u are lvl 75 (anni+torch +stats).
    And that your merc dies from Iron Maiden in chaos sanctuary sometimes, you on the other hand dont, because u do only 0.1% melee dmg.
    And that some items are ladder only.

    This is a game... I personnally play for fun and relaxation with my mates online and that's why I made this char, and all my chars, because they are fun to play.

    BEWARE = people in baalgames will say stuff like
    -Why are you grizzly ?
    -Show items after run !
    -Is that hack ?
    -And my personal favorite = oh nice, a bearsorc, you dont see many around

    Post any questions HERE ! Not by pm please

    Thank you goes to Charlie (Tallbird-ew) for giving me this idea.

    Interesting guide.

    One problem: since you don't have the strength to equip the spirit monarch on your phase side if you die you will have problems picking up your body.

    Can you post screenshots of the sorc with and without ES?

    Will the ias be somewhat decent if you attack beast side (with fanatism)? You could use a axe faster/with lower requirements than the commonly used zerker.

    Maybe it could be viable to go full ES and have memory on switch, you could use damage reduction stuff like glad's bane and make your sorc a great tank. I will check this out.
