Dear All,

I have started a drow sorcerer not too long ago (currently at lvl 20). First he was a fire savant, in higher levels, I've changed to air. But at his current state, he became extremely weak. The elemental spells are not useful on epic levels. The interesting part is, when I've played with a necro wizard, I've felt myself as a demigod between lvl 17 and 25, of course mainly because the instant kill and CC spells. So, I've switched (with reincarnation) to an elritch knight with a relative high enchantment DC for CC. Now, it's harder to kill me, and I can stop most of the enemies, but I can't damage them effectively, so I can't win :) Does any of you have a hint how should I become more useful?

Important to know:

1. Solo character.
2. Pure, and no way to change :)
3. Better gear and past life. As a D&D fan, I will never TR (yes, I know it's advantages, please do not argue with me about this, thanks :) ), and to achieve better gear I have to level up, so the problem stands.

Thanks for your help!

Fortunately, U29 will be adding some new epic caster feats. In particular, the "Master of <element>" feats seem to be aimed specifically at boosting Savant SLAs. You might want to check out the discussion threads about them:

My hunch is we will see the return of Water & Earth Savants with U29, since there are so many fire- and lightning-resistant mobs in current and soon-to-be endgame. Either that or everyone will just play Shiradi builds - so, same old, same old. :rolleyes:

Yes, I already examined the new feats. However somehow I have to reach level 24 :)

I've been playing a 18-2 BF Sorc/Pal - lots of time in epics. Not uber - but really fun. Build and other stuff in my signature (Airforged... the last firebender).

Have switched to fire primary because of epic red armor....
