I'm still a relative newbie to DDO, I've leveled a Ninja Monk to 20 and then parked her to rest as, well, lets just say the prohibitively high cost of TRs had me decide on indulging a interest in the Sorcerer. I'm playing a Drow Sorcerer as I absolutely, positively cannot stand Warforged, no disrespect intended to those who do, but I don't metagame and as I said, can't stand the race in general. I also almost exclusively solo play, my play times often get interrupted for unknown periods of time and it'd be the height of rudeness and arrogance to inflict that on other players through grouping.
I made use of my Veteran lvl 4 perk and cleared all of the Harbor quests of my level and then moved into the marketplace. I was moving along just fine until I went into the halls of Shan-to-kor and there the first glaring weakness nailed me repeatedly...traps. On my Monk, traps were an nuissance at best, only a few actually did so much damage as to kill me and even then it was only if I was already below 50%, I specifically built towards being good at it because I don't particularly like the whole disarm trap playstyle. It strikes me as incredibly dull and annoying to search every few steps and then try to find a box to click on, especially with some of the talk I've heard about how silly high the DCs get with the item farming for Disarm and so on, like I said, incrediably dull and annoying to me.
I'd like to continue playing my Sorcerer, she's at level 5 and its been enjoyable up till the point where i hit these traps. They just utterly destroy me in short order, and I'm wondering what strategies Sorcerers commonly use to cope with them? I've twinked myself with resist gear, everything I have is +15 and I've got every element covered, but as I said, I still get destroyed by these traps. Your advice and council will be greatly appreciated.
