Feedback Sorceress
Big numbers! Big prizes!


STAT PLACEMENT:
Str: for gear (keep it low)
Dex: for gear (keep it low, no block)
Vit: base + leftovers after mana cap
Energy: max it out until mana cap (disenchanting helps greatly)

SKILL PLACEMENT:
Uberskills
~10 Time Field (enough to hit 75 slow with +skills)
1 pt Moon Cookie (WORTH ITS WEIGHT IN GOLD)
0/1 pt Arcane Fury for frw
Mana Tree
~10 Arcane Torrent (whatever you're happy with after +skills, don't smax)
1 Mana Sweep
1 in the other two neutral pre-reqs
Fire Tree
smax Living Flame
1 in Flamestrike
1 in Flamefront pre-req
Lightning Tree
smax(mod2) Warp Armor
1 in the other three lightning pre-reqs
...
Use Wiccaning to smax with remaining skill points after all +max skills challenges and to get more mana.

GEAR:
=Low-level=
Helm: Stillwater (-req this, get +str from gear/Shaels)
Weapon: "Pax Mystica", "Hadad", Dubhdroiacht, Staff of Roses
=> or: Narlant Dream & Ivory Tower
Armor: "Lyrannikin" for Charm, really any good sorc armor runeword or Nightscape
Gloves: "Iblis" for 10% energy early, "Kali" for skills, Featherclaw for frw
Belt: Resist belt, unimportant
Boots: Lionpaw, others
Ammy: Teganze!*
Rings: 2x Empyrean Bands!


* Get one of these ASAP. The mana and life bonuses are amazing. Also pictured is my low-level equipment.

=Higher-level=
Helm: Thinking Cap SU, Lightning set helm
Weapon: Lightning set staff (tons more mana)
Armor: "Oracle"!*
Gloves: Lightning set gloves (tons more mana)
Belt: Energy craft, resist belt
Boots: Lionpaw still helps, "Ginfaxi", energy craft
Ammy: Teganze (lucky up'd with good %mana ideally)!
Rings: 2x Empyrean Bands!
Socketables: Xars/Ums if Ginfaxi, -req (ort craft) & (+mana | +life) & (fire spell | -fire res) jewels in any sacred runewords to save you from pulling your hair out. Lots of good options.


* This alone accounts for nearly 1/3 my mana. I socketed five -14% req (and %energy) jewels in a sacred Banded Plate for a very low 189 dex req. As the staff is the only other dex req item (and it at 109 req), I've gotten away with 40 base dex. There are a few optimizations I could make, but overall it's great.

GAMEPLAY:
=Before Arcane Torrent=
Just whack stuff with a tier 1 warp blade and Moonstrike.

=Before Time Field and Moon Cookies=
You'll be very squishy, but with Living Flame you shouldn't be instadying. Use Arcane Torrent excessively, it's very strong at low levels. If the target is magic-immune and you can't kill it with Flamestrike, don't be afraid to abuse Mana Sweep's physical spell damage. It's also quite high at lower levels.

=Farming=
Time Field the screen to 25% it's original speed.
Whack the first thing you see with Moonstrike to add a few thousand life.
Kite backwards and lead the enemies into nice packs.
Obliterate with 4fpc cone-of-magic-damage.
Kill magic immunes and single targets with Flamestrike.
Use Mana Sweep whenever low as per usual.

=Harder Ubers=
Sadly, Arcane Torrent will just not cut it against really high hp enemies (as its damage is capped by max mana and diminishing returns on Arcane Torrent, not to mention the skill not calculating damage correctly).
If the goal of the uber is mostly to survive (Ureh, Vizjun, Rathma Square) then you'll be well off with over 15k life, 30 avoid, 75 slow, and a few hundred thousand defense.
Otherwise, you'll probably need to invest in gear/skills that help your Flamestrike out and use feedback damage as a secondary. In any event, you've still got good survivability.

That's it folks. There was only a couple I couldn't get a hold of.

I'll be posting more separate guides shortly.
