Advice for Sorcerer Barrelsmith Build

Hi all,

I’m a relatively new player looking for some advice on how I could further improve my Sorcerer Barrelsmith build which was inspired by Marcus’ barrelsmith purifier build.

Grimtools link: Sorcerer, Level 100 (GD - Grim Dawn Build Calculator
SR 100 clear (with a lot of pots):
Note: this video is running hawk + mantis, which i later changed to quill + jackal. Don’t think it makes too much of a difference at the end of the day.

The main issue with the build is survivability. It’s phys res is fairly low (hovering about 40%), and its main sustain comes from druid, behemoth, and chariot. I also don’t have a great way to reduce enemy damage other than a low level Ulzuin’s Wrath. However, I also feel a little uneasy about lowering its damage output as it does not have much -rr% and so already struggles a little on bosses with high lightning resist.
I’m currently testing out running Serenity as the relic for an extra circuit breaker. It would also give me a couple of skill points to move around. I am also thinking of replacing the Living Ring with a Gollus Ring and put more points into Vindictive Flame for more health regen.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

I’ve got nothing. Looks good to me, great even. And I wouldn’t call 40 % phys res low :wink: But maybe that’s just me :laughing:
