I bind W and R to Left/Right strafe respectively, as this moves your fingers over one set of keys (thereby giving greater keyboard access).
oh! I had never heard that before. I'll need to work on that.

Can you give a basic rotation for the Hybrid build just something to use as a guide?

Thanks

afflic (to proc lightning barrage) > death field > shock > Force Lightning > when wrath is up crushing darkness for 1 target or chain lightning for 2+ targets.

other tips:
* your highest dps is crushing darkness (recklessness)
* maximize you global cool down always
* always cancel your force lightning channel when your DF, shock or CL cd is up

Above post is pretty bad... here's what I do.

AF (keep up, on multiple targets if possible)
FL
(wrath)
DF
CD
FL
(wrath)
CL


Shock when moving if CD/CL are on cooldown/not wrath'd, never shock in normal rotation, or lightning strike. Ever. Never full cast CD/CL.

Always use full FL channels for recklessness, maybe CL+DF if you've got 2+ targets. Only break FL channel when wrath procs if DF and CD are up.

As 13/28 you can't spam CL all day, so sometimes just keep spamming FL until DF/CD are off cooldown.

Also, your #1 priority is always a barrage proc'd FL half cast. Assuming you didn't get a barrage proc, the rotation above is win.

Note this is basically a PVE post but the only change I'd make for PVP is that I use recklessness for the DF+CL+FL combo mostly instead of for only FL channels. (stalker set ftw).

yeah this is what noobs sorcs do. they just FL and wait for wrath procs so they can CL. and they have no idea that shock dmg = CL dmg single target which is better than channeling FL

How about some rotation for each of the builds - primarily Madness and hybrid

Thanks

Just having some issues with my sorcerer.

Fresh 50 and pretty much ignored PvP until around 40, where I dabbled with it a bit, enough to get my 40 PvP robe and skirt which I've modded up to current 48-50 mods/enhancements/etc.

I guess my questions are what keybinds are needed for a Corruption focused Sorcerer in PvP? I'm willing to learn anything. I just want to feel like I'm contributing to the team and not just another meat shield.

Also, would like to see a beginning gear list for PvP, if there is such a thing. What sets should I be saving for?

Are you saying that versus a single target Shock is better than Force Lightning? That doesn't sound right.

Besides, I thought Crushing Darkness (with wrath proc'd) was better than Chain Lightning or Shock for single target damage?

What is the highest single hit this hybrid set can do in one death field with an average crit ratio
