What is the best build/itemization for a HC sorc? I have now died about 3 times, even with pretty decent items, by being 1 shot. Regardless of what I do, if I get in any bad situation (i.e. teleporting to meph and get hit by a couple of dolls) I instantly die before I even have a chance to exit/pot. I have typically been going blizzard sorc. Is there a more tanky/survivable yet efficient PVM build? Thanks.

Do you have a link to a good guide for this? I am not familiar as back in the day I used to play SC PVP, but now I am more interested in the challenge of HC

Do not use es in pvm, ever.

Mana burn exists, and it's still bugged.

If you're trying to get 1 shot by a random mana burn pack, then es is the way to go!

Appreciate the opinion, but then can you explain your viewpoint of surviving rippy situations then such as tping into a mob of dolls, etc that would otherwise melt you before you can blink?

Max block. Save & exiting the game fast.
Play slow so you don't end up in those situations.

I am not sure if you have played sorc... you have to teleport unless you walk the run and at that point why go a sorc? and when you tp you find youself on top of mobs that can insta killl you before you can escape

No, I'm not sure if you've played a sorc before.
With 105 fcr you can literally teleport on a mob and be on your way before they can even react.
Since you can't seem to do that I suggested that you TELEPORT SLOWLY and be more aware of your surroundings, so that you don't tele into a mob of dolls.

You can’t play a sorc in hardcore without a 2nd account bo barb unless you like to waste your time
