Right, so i have been off the game for about a month but i came back to see how the new system was working and it seems pretty sweet for most of the classes i play BUT i must admmit i'm having a bit of a hard time with my sorcerer.
To be honest, the savant stuff is really cool, being able to cast Emp+max frost lance for 6 sp is quite sweet. But what with the whole spellcraft skill, i will be needing to LR, so i figured i might as well rethink my build and i'd like some advice on it:
As of now i'm a 15 Human Ice Savant with Eletric for backup. I'm f2p, don't have monk, fvs or warforged avaible. My playstyle is pretty straight foward, displacement, web, dancing ball and nuke.
So let's go by bits:
Ok, from what i could see about races at a quick glance, there's 3 viable options : Warforged, Elf and Human.
-Human would give me an extra feat (and it was very helpful on early levels) , but with the pre-reqs gone from the savant lines an extra feat doesn't seem so relevant now. The human enhancement line offers the possibility for : +1 Con, +1 Cha, +30% healing amp and the extended uncounciousness range, for a total of 15 points.
- Elf enhancement line seems to have some perks too though: Feywild tap (5 clickies of temporary sp, anyone knows whether it's a fixed value or a percentage from your total? on my ranger it gives about 70sp, so at worse it would still give me an extra 350 sp per rest), +100 sp and +3 spell pen, 4 points going to waste on useless enhances to fill up the tree, for a total of 16 points. Down side is the lower constitution.
-Warforged: right, so take into account that i'm a first lifer and i have no time or intention of TRing this sorcerer. The ehancement lines for wf looks pretty avarage, and i would only be taking it for the self-healing. On the other hand, that's spell slots and sp i'd be spending on keeping myself alive, which (after a couple of year playing flshie sorcerers and squishy rogues) is something i can handle just fine with my current spell selection and a couple of emergency wands. Also, downside is i'd need to spend TP points to get it, and i'd rahter purchase some new packs instead.
What is the savant of the moment? i hear fire is a good choice once again, with eletric coming to a close second, but what are those conclusions based on? As far as level 16-20 is corncerned fire is just no good what with Vale of twilignt and all, but on epic levels... Well, i just don't know. The only epic pack i've got is GH, so which savant you guys think is the best choice for level 20+?
3- Feats: Now that the prereq is gone, what are the best feats/splashes for a fleshie?(aside from monk and fvs) as far as i can think Empower, maximize, extend and the spell pen line, toughness and the Spell Focus line, but since i'm going dps anyways just how necessary is Spen on epic? the only few that comes is the DoT spells on boss but without epic gear i'm in doubt as to wheter or not the spell pen feats would actually make a big enought difference against the epic spell resistance. Any thoughts?
I think that's all my questions for now. thank you for taking the time to read this and any suggestion is apreciated.
