Hi all!

So I've never really played a sorc. 10 years ago I played 'zons & barbs. I got back into this in Dec. 2010 and played a 'zon again. That ladder ended, and then I played a Hammerdin for the first time, and then made a singer goldfind barb and a frenzy MF barb. THAT ladder ended and I got tired of ladder ending. So as many of you know I'm back to single player.

But I still have never played a sorc. There have been at least couple threads lately regarding hell viable untwinked sorc builds, and a couple walkthroughs too. Both of those ended with deeds screens, pretty early, so I'm hoping that even though this may be another cookie-cutter build that it will still be interesting.

My plan is to have a vita fire / cold sorc, but I'm open to all suggestions. Please do chime in! I learned a few very helpful things from you all on the torch walk (thanks Mikk0 especially, and the all guys who told me to get the hang of charge!)

The Plan:
  • No re-runs until it becomes needed. I'm a little burned out on Magic Finding for the time being. (go figure)
  • Players 8 all the time, except countess level 5 only.
  • No using extended stash until after hell Baal
  • No spirit or insight until after hell Baal, but I may reconsider. Torch found two 15/15 Monarchs (4os in LK, white in Chaos) :p
  • Get all waypoints
  • Provide video of good gear drops
  • Screenshot every gear update (let me know if this is too annoying. It will be crazy at the start :) )
  • Provide full stats & gear shots in thread after every difficulty.
  • Provide full stats & gear shots in an album after every act (hopefully I'll remember).
  • Play with more moderation, stick w/ P90X2 calendar (day 5 today), sleep regularly!
That last point means hopefully that my updates won't be nearly as frequent. Sorry guys :p


I'm currently in A3 Normal.




First super-chest is right outside camp door! But no-re-runs yet.

I'm going melee until I have some skills.
