Just wanted to know your thoughts on lite sorc vs hammerdin as overall MF'er. I've been out of d2 for several years. I've had both before in previous ladders and kinda liked my hammerdin. I dont think getting gear will be an issue, but I would like to get an idea of how much decent gear for both setups would cost from anyone who's currently geared up either toon. merc gear doesnt have to be eth. also how much Mf do both setups usually run without an inventory full of 7%.
for sorc i picture:
merc : andys, fort, eth cv infinity
sorc: hoto, spirit monarch, stormshield, coh or um vipermagi, um shako, war travs or treks, bk ring, fcr ring/stats, 3 lite/mod ammy, magefist(no chanceguards or gimp fcr?), tgods or arachnid mesh (is goldwrap even worth considering?), then there's the torches and anni. I'm going FCR over MF. not sure if max DR is needed. thoughts?
merc : spirit CA or thresher, fort?, andys?
hammerdin : enigma, hoto, hoz, wartravs, shako, arachnid mesh, chanceguards, bk ring, maras. torch, anni.
am i missing anything? are both lacking fhr or will rez be bettr for one over the other?
if going lite sorc route, is stormshield better than sprit monarch?
is absorbs needed? I'll probably get a natures peace and wisp in inventory.
I alrdy have a lvl 85ish sorc as my first toon back on ladder, and the hammerdin is in the works. Is the hammerdin the better overall MF once gearing up is not an issue?
