Spirit shield is terrible for block and resists. FCR alone can't carry you, you gotta work on block and FHR alongside it.

What Jay is referring to is the HC Sorc build from forever ago. Here is the in-depth write-up.

I can't imagine playing such a risky HC build while the servers are still fucky

Honestly, I havn't had one close death that was server related. My own ego/tiredness/greed on the other hand...

what point are you making here?



That you’re wasting like 3 item slots just to hit an FHR bp that you can get more than halfway to with 1 item.

Fair enough. Especially if you have spirit monarch and sword that is already 110 FHR. Do you have an alternative suggestion for surviving in HC as sorc then? I am always in favor of multiple opinions.

What’s the reason of maxing tele and not TK? I know some guides say like 1 in tele to get mana cost lower to like 5-6 but maxing TK significantly decreased how much mana you lose with ES. Do you not use ES in HC?
