    I made my CTA in a crystal sword

    Hoto is actually pretty nice..
    Maybe i should make one, im not getting oculus it seems.


    I will go lightning though..
    And I havent looked yet, for what weapons I should be using then
    I havent even thought much about what skills i should pick up.

    For Infinity:
    Found a superior colossus voulge.. i can lazok it.
    But should I ?
    I were looking for a threser or giant thresher due to speed/procs etc for infinity.

    They should be pretty common.. i know i saved a 6socket one, but dunno why i did

    It seems to me, the polearm is a weapon I would rarely use myself, on any character. so the merc will wield it always.

    10000 runs on 25 sec come about to around 70 hours. That's quite an achievement. Too bad about your rune luck though.

    Regarding polearms choice, I'd go with eth thresher. Low requirements and fast so the merc triggers cb pretty often.

    Yes, make a Hoto!!
    Oculus isn't very nice anyway, because it has an annoying CtC teleport.

    For lightning, eschuta's temper instead of hoto is a very solid choice, but hard to find a good one.

    Most people don't like colossus voulges because of the high strength req.
    If you only want it to be a merc weapon, you really want it to be ethereal, for high damage.

    If you want to use it on a character, there's 2 ways you could be doing it
    -As a caster for -lite res. You want eth then, for low reqs.
    -For some melee builds like 2 handed holy shock zealot. You want to be able to repair it then.

    Either ways, threshers are very suitable because of their lower reqs.

    If you use andy's hat, or are level 93 or higher, the strength req on an eth colossus voulge is not a problem. I'd say they're one of the most common infinities made, simply because they larzuk to 4 sockets. Cryptic axes are ever so slightly better, but harder to get with 4 sockets.

    Threshers hit altogether different breakpionts than CV/CA, so they go with a slightly different gear set. With eth fort + andy (15 ias + fr jewel) cryptic axe or colossus voulge is the best choice in terms of DPS. Gear with a different amount of IAS may favor threshers instead. In particular if you have no IAS (maybe vamp gaze) thresher is better.

    ya.. i busted my knee up, so cant really move about much..
    Can't say it was superfun though
    zaphodbrx
    this is my
    Eschuta's Temper
    Eldritch Orb
    One-Hand Damage: 18 to 50
    Durability: 30 of 30
    (Sorceress Only)
    Required Level: 72
    Orb Class - Fast Attack Speed
    Item Version: 1.10+ Expansion
    Item Level: 87
    Fingerprint: 0xe8ec8ea7
    +29 to Energy
    +1 to Sorceress Skill Levels
    40% Faster Cast Rate
    +19% to Fire Skill Damage
    +16% to Lightning Skill Damage

    Not the best roll on it, but not the worst.
    But I think my damage would probably be better with +3 skills weapon instead of the temper.
    I recall i hated that teleport on oculus when I had it..

    magicrectangle
    My merc can use this already, at level 88, he has a stone runeword with +16strenght.
    but i think i will make it in a tresher.. he uses tal rashas mask atm.
    Vampire and andys have evaded me so far.

    I havent looked into breakpoints etc yet, all a little to technical to dip into when i already lack so much other stuff first.
    ill do some cows or something, a few baal runs to get my essence again, and see what drops.

    But I will probably go with thresher, cows supposedly should drop that frequently.

    Thanks for all your advices and inputs again, you guys are awesome!
    All gonna play Diablo 3?

    The main advantage of eschuta's over hoto is that it gives the same skill/fcr ( +3/40 ) and it adds some additional lightning/fire skill damage ( not very significant because of masteries ), and provides a place to put a rainbow jewel in.

    So if it's not +3 skill, hoto will easily beat it. Hoto also gives a big resistance boost and little more mana pool. And it can also be used on other characters. So make one!

    Eschuta's does have the looks going for it though, flails look butt ugly.

    Hmm..

    I don't think my character was ready for this full lightning yet.

    ohnoes.jpg
    See picture, my damage currently, with BO/BC at work.

    Not the best.
    Problem is I run into Lightning immunes with infinity, so far only a cow boss(not king) and lister have been immune. most normal mobs are ok.

    So I guess i need to find cresent moon/griffons or some facets to fix that.

    I run out of mana constantly, i got mage fist and frostburn ready, so one of them has to do the job.

    I cant make COH as my mind is still lagged from LK running and refuses to go back

    I will make Hoto, but that wont help me much, ill get one more skill level into everything.. but thats it.

    I guess i need to run andariel for some sojs.. I use a these rings and amulets atm..

    Nagelring
    Ring
    Required Level: 7
    Item Version: 1.10+ Expansion
    Item Level: 85
    Fingerprint: 0xb29f7d3b
    +62 to Attack Rating
    Magic Damage Reduced by 3
    Attacker Takes Damage of 3
    28% Better Chance of Getting Magic Items

    Death Grip
    Ring
    Required Level: 48
    Item Version: 1.10+ Expansion
    Item Level: 77
    Fingerprint: 0xb89701e0
    +10 to Dexterity
    +77 to Attack Rating
    All Resistances +11
    9% Better Chance of Getting Magic Items
    14% Chance to cast Level 5 Nova when struck

    The Eye of Etlich
    Amulet
    Required Level: 15
    Item Version: 1.10+ Expansion
    Item Level: 87
    Fingerprint: 0x7684055
    +35 Defense vs. Missile
    Adds 2-3 cold damage over 3 seconds
    7% Life stolen per hit
    +4 to Light Radius
    +1 to All Skill Levels

    The rare ring goes if i get Hoto. wont need the 11 resistance then.

    I put my skills into charged bolt, lightning, nova, chainlightning, lightning mastery..
    I only managed to put 13 points into lightning mastery The rest is 20.

    1 point into warmth, static field, teleport, telekinesis, frozen armor.

    I tried cows at p7, my merc basicly died a lot, because I spent too long killing them.
    The key here is getting more + skills first I assume, as that is my main problem ?

    My total +skills is 8.
    No GC for lightning yet.. got one each for fire and cold.. and a bunch for other classes.

    Re: Sorceress in hell.. advice needed

    The first thing is you should max out lightning mastery. Skip some points in the synergies charge bolt and nova.

    Secondly, infinity sorc doesn't really work without enough -res on gear. At your level, the cheapest alternative is 'crescent moon' weapon. Make it in a crystal sword.

    You also need better equipment. Griffon's you won't have for a while unless you trade for it. Do you have an arachnid mesh or SOJ? Stick a rainbow facet jewel into your vipermagi if you have one. Amulet is bad. Mara's will work if you got one, same with Tal rasha amulet. Here's the one I'm using. These types are hard to get.

    Havoc Noose
    Amulet
    Required Level: 63
    Item Version: 1.10+ Expansion
    Item Level: 81
    Fingerprint: 0xe530f35a
    +22 to Strength
    +1 to Maximum Damage
    Fire Resist +17%
    Lightning Resist +17%
    Cold Resist +17%
    Poison Resist +53%
    10% Faster Cast Rate
    +2 to Lightning Skills (Sorceress Only)

    Ya, I am aware my stuff is bad

    But it is what I got, hehe..

    I haven't run the bosses that much yet.
    The only facet I got is a fire-res one.

    I guess ill run baal at p1 or p5 or something, and hope for good drops.
    My gear is basicly the same as when i last brought it up.. Except i got chanceguards instead of some rare gloves.. and aldurs instead of some plain Mf boots.

    Unless i run into non-boss immunes, I will stick to what i got for weapon now, or well.. Hoto.
    As my damage already isnt great.

    Edit: well its a joy to run baal on p1.
    Easy easy easy!

    just got hoto! 39res to all..

    Well the most important thing to do is respec and max lightning mastery. It's big.
    Then run mephisto to get an Arachnid mesh..
    Try to hit 117 fcr breakpoint ( for lightning )
