HoLy's Drive-By Sorc Guide

HoLy's Drive-By Sorceress Guide

Drive-By Sorcs are one of my favorite PvP characters in the game. Although, requires no skill, quite annoying and very BM if you know what you are doing. They are pretty easy to make, cheap (unless powerful) and extremely easy to use. The idea of the drive-by sorc is to teleport around the players preventing them from hitting you, as you deal damage and kill them flawlessly with your Mercenary. I will be listing pros and cons as well as gear and skills/stats. I am open to any suggestions and criticism.

PROS:
- Very Agile

*There are many different items that can be as good as another. Try a few different ones and see which build works for you. These are the basics and can have many different variants. You guys understand the point. This is one of those characters that are funny and fun to play.

PLAY STYLE

Essentially what you want to do is, enchant your mercenary giving him tons of fire damage on top of his Faith's Aura and his Dream/Dragon's aura. Your character is equipped with Infinity giving enemy -resistances and making you deal more damage. You will also be using the lightning storm as you teleport around the dueling area. All that, dealing damage to your foes. I used to do this back in .09, and .10 patch back in the day. Very fun and annoying for enemies.

*I'm open for suggestions and if you feel something else would work much better, by all means go for it. I'm not an expert at PvP but this is what worked for me.
