What's better for PvP? A 200 FCR Lightning Sorc, or a 200 FCR Fire Sorc?

Lightning would have an Energy Shield build, while the fire would be a pure fire build. Which is the best for PvP?

depends purely on style of play
personally i prefer fire, because lightning has a sort delay while casting so it takes longer to cast than a normal spell (charged bolt, tele, fb)

200 fcr sorcs are all about speed, so i would say fire, as you will do more dmg and are faster

Yeah watch the casting times. Apparently lightning and chain lightning work off faster hit rate, not faster cast rate which will throw off all your other attck spells like Nova. Also I find Lightning and CL more about pure luck as the minimum damage is always 1. Disheartening to hit Baal with a fully masteried CL and only do about 10 damage :)

I'm pretty sure CL works with FCR since 1.10. Plus when i had a Lit Sorc, i got a dagger with 10% IAS and it didnt change anything in terms of my CL casting speed.
