    Until we can get the green glyphs my setups will be something along the lines of these:

    PvP: http://www.horusgames.com/tera/calc/...01100001011000 with the remaining 3 going into the power glyph for Mana Barrier.

    PVP: http://www.horusgames.com/tera/calc/...01100001011000 with the remaining 2 going into Overchannel.

    PVE: http://www.horusgames.com/tera/calc/...01100001011000 with the remaining 3 going into the power glyph for Mana Barrier.

    All this is really flexible though depending on what im feeling in the mood for.

    Question about your pvp build #2 (the second link) You glyphed "retaliate" for a 50% chance to trigger Mana Barrier. Does that trigger even if there is a cool down existing already in place for the Mana Barrier?

    Yes, Retaliate will trigger mana barrier completely separate of the actual skill. It will not start a cooldown for the skill, nor will it be affected if you've just used it. I don't think the triggered Mana Barrier is affected by your glyphs however. Think of them as separate and distinct

    Awesome, that is good to know. I will change that tonight.

    http://www.teratome.com/glyph-calc#1.7.0zwV0Nzz000m0RR

    This is the PvE build I'm trying, with 3 points in the Teleport Cooldown Reset (not listed on here for some reason).

    Crystal-wise I'm running Acrimonious, Savage, Forceful, and Focused

    I'd do something different if they fixed the Lightning Trap trick, but for now this is it. It's pretty position specific, and the mana barrier buff is only once every 2 minutes. Still, it's 15 seconds and if you pop it right before a celerity phase it could be huge -- you can pop it 5 times during Kaprima and it increases power by 10%.

    Also I've been running savagery over carving scrolls, but I'm thinking of going back since sorcs crit rate is so low. We'll see

    If anyone other sorcs want to put their builds up that'd be helpful

    If you haven't already, grab some coffee one morning and read this: http://tera-forums.enmasse.com/forum...ndgame-focused

    It's been awhile, but i'd wager you will want to change pretty much you're entire spec afterwards. Regardless of what you do or don't change, not speccing BoC makes me want to cry.

    That's actually where I pulled most of my inspiration for this from. I sacrificed ice shard and hail storm's mana reduction, but besides that I'm not really missing anything (I did actually spec BoC). Do you have any suggestions I might've missed?

    I'm hitting with fireblast for a 60k-70k white and about 350-400k crits, though I hit a 720 today in BT. Noticeable improvement in damage without much downtime. I've been running carving scrolls over savagery scrolls too and it's helping a lot in overall DPS

    As long as you have BoC everything else is just filler. I just was never a fan of the lightning trap trick though since it felt like too much chance depending on if FB would crit or not. I'm glad it is working out though, big crits always make you smile, especially when it takes off 5-10pct HP.
