To answer your questions:

Yes, I kill just fine in hell P1. It's obviously a low damage, single-element build, so I just do what it's good at: meph, andy, AT.

My slots:
Kira guardian (for +20 fhr)
Skullder's
Bloodfist (for +30 fhr)
Bladebuckle (for +30 fhr)
Waterwalk (for 15 dex and + life)
Mosers with 2 pdiamonds
Suicide branch
2x rare fcr rings
1x blue mf amulet

Inventory is stuffed with life charms.

You don't need expensive gear to be effective. If I find a shako or arach, I'm selling it asap. If I lose this sorc, I've lost at most 300 fg worth of value.


How do you find good gear though? Your MF with those items has to be very low

Edit: Well I guess with the gull/ryme on switch you have some

I have 358% on switch, it's definitely good enough. Although with the nerfed drop rates on server side it's been far less lucrative than the first 2 weeks.

This is basically exactly what I do, but I never go block just full vitality. Do you actually find block worth it over just dumping life? Only reason I'd consider it is blocking doll physical damage porting to meph, but I'm worried about having horrible life and dying to elemental damage then.

Every response given you seem to just disagree with or combat instantly. Why even ask in the first place if you don't want to listen to the answers?

Yes, resists are maxed in hell thanks to some random resists on charms and jewelry. I have 2 +5 FHR small charms to hit the 86 fhr breakpoint, which I found to be absolutely crucial. I don't typically take any damage TPing to meph.

I'm only getting 50% block with mosers, but I still find it worthwhile. Sorcs don't gain much from vitality, I find what matters most are gear (suicide branch instead of wiz spike for 40 life) and cramming charms. Dolls swarm but their melee aren't dangerous compared to uldars unless they pop. My merc uses Woestave, unique halberd with 50% slow. There's no chance he's popping any dolls.

I am not combating it, I am asking reasoning to learn from why they are doing what they do so I can understand it. There is a difference.

Dolls are brutal. 1k life and you’re good in nm with any game skills.

Hell requires quite a bit more.

It’s a game curve. Those dolls are the only reason anyone gives pause to just owning Meph over and over.

interesting. What about skills wise. What do you max? Why not spirit shield? Just don't wanna spend those stats into str?

They think they know best and are just searching for reassurance before they die again xD
