Default magic boost I

+300 MA +300 MB +10% faster cast lasts 1 minute with 5 minute cool down@ lvl 55

With the MR nerf and this skill at lv 55, do you think 50e/55 pvp Orbs are more desirable than books?

I'm sitting at 1340 MA with total +96 MA manastones(in horrible gears). But with this skill activated, I didn't get resisted once vs. a full MR Fenris/Miragent cleric, not even cc.

I speculate that with a better weapon and 1500+ MA with food buffs, we should be fine without socketing any MA?

hmmm... I'm also curious what other sorcs think about SoF now? Is the extra MA really needed now?

you will probably just get a mixed opinion. personally i think SOF would be a waste of a stigma because of magic boost 1. with most clerics if not pretty much all of them taking out some MR and slotting HP SOF, i think, would only help agaisnt aether armor from temps.

i would much rather have wintry armor or elemental ward and arcane thunderbolt

With Magic boost 1, I'd agree and say SoF is a waste now. With 16-800 M.acc, you can hit anything, even m.res aether armor temps. M.res was nerfed hardcore.

Can you elaborate more on this statement? Is there a ninja change behind the MR mechanism? Or is it because 2.0 skills that increases MA renders MR build to be somewhat less useful?

Also can someone give some insights about Orb vs. Book with the new buff and "Mres nerf".

The reason I ask is because I have a Alukina's Orb waiting for a 50e/55 Orb combine. It would be a hassle to get the Alukina's book. Would it be worth the trouble or will a Pvp Orb do the job?

i've always had a mira orb & really notice no diff between endgame ppl resisting or not, if u go up against a mres stacker chances r ur gonna get resisted no matta wat unless u also stack macc...even a tome alone is not enough macc against mres stackers...

either or, u should always have multiple sets of armor for diff situations u go n2

also going orb now may make up some mb that some accessories w/ crit spell lack

n n the end, it's not that tome will hit more often then orb or w/e, it's all about wat set u have on against a mres stacker

couple more plat medals & i can get 55 tome & combine to jesu tome <3 for a macc only weap

Erm no.
The likely chances of you landing a spell on an M.res stacker between Orb and Tome is really noticable.
Fact is, most orb users have a lower M.acc, 1300ish, where as tome users usually average 1400 (good ones 1500). You can safely gap 3-400 M.res to M.acc and still have a awesome hitting rate.

The difference would be 40 ma and 40 mb. Well, depending on combine also. Either way Alukinas book and orb has no +MA. Though i think it's probably the best combine for people without access to high end pve/orange weapons.

Probably will carry around a MA set for vs. sorcs with elemental ward. Otherwise food/self buffed MA should be enough to hit everything.

well im sure most people, for pvp, like to use tome because magic boost is easier to get with stones at +27 while magical accuracy stones are only up to +14
