So I have had one person with advice on a build and 99% of other people saying I am pretty much screwed as a sorc? good to know... lmao
Aight I'll give you some tips. You have to build and gear your sorc completely differently than what the guides say. Most guides only pay lip service to HC by saying "put points into dex for max block and wear SS". This is good advice but not nearly enough unless you're uber geared.
Here's what I did with my sorc. She earned all of my FG since launch:
1. I went orb instead of blizzard to free up points.
2. I put 20 into teleport to get to 1 mana cost. I don't even notice mana burn anymore.
3. I don't just gear for FCR, I also gear for FHR. I wear bloodfist, blade buckle, and kira's guardian on my sorc. Totally weird, but it lets me hit a high enough FHR to still tele out if I get hit.
That eliminates two key reasons why you die: mana burn and hit lock. Also aim for 63 fcr breakpoint. I've found that with any less it's too sketch.
