Its damage is dogshit compared to infinity and nova sorcs are bad (and will continue to be bad) anyway


At least for fire sorc it could be useful in my opinion.

Thats just your opinion, man


It's not really an opinion that this will do significantly less dmg than wielding Infinity.

Or do I just think that?

Not only could you potentially roll +3 Nova, +3 Es and + 3 Light Mastery on the base, you also need less strength with a Staff (ideally even ethereal to lower req. even further), because you dont need a Monarch and also have a big change to cast weaken when struck, which adds survivabilty on top of a large Life Boost and +30% Mana Regen.

Sure in HC, Hoto and Stormshield will still be the way to go I guess, but in sc Obsession might be insanely cool for the melee Nova Sorc.

Anything I didnt think of here?


It’s much worse than Eschutas +spirit

You cannot reach 200 fcr with this staff unless you wear griffons. In that case you are sacrificing 2/20/60 life/20 res/30 str/2x facets for 1 skill/25 fcr/1x facet

Tell me again how that is worth it when it’s already worse than hoto spirit :rofl:

That circlet is gonna cost you thousands of FG and will still give you less life than obsession with no str req and 25% max life.

And facets? You do know that griffons has % dmg and -% enemy res right?
