chubbypuppy said:In addition, I just like the orb much more than blizz. I had to use blizz until I could get to level 30 last nite, and getting the orb is such a relief. I can aim the orb instead of fire and hope with blizz. For me personally that's very important.
akadevil said:what u mean hope....it's always instant....
plus i had a FO sorc so i noe, with all the highest equip, i had 900 damage orb. But that wasnt easy. I remade a blizz sorc, and got 6k damage. Blizz sorc much better at mf'ing than orb, and same with pvp, unless your facing a relly pro pally or a relly pro druid. What i like blizz most in pvps are those skelly enigma necros, they're so annoying, teleports so fuking fast dont even noe if he hacks, but all i do is put one blizzard over myself, he tries to come over and it's gameover for him.
I did test this quite a while ago. The total was either 42 or 43 and the explosion was 16 bolts. On a perfect hit you can assume 18 - 22 bolts hit a single target, depending on direction.Diablo47 said:Maybe RTB could find it in the .mpq files.
Peppe said:I'm considering modifying the blizzball build i used (basically 50/50 cold fire skill distribution) swapping in Frozen orb as the main/only cold skill. Cuase i never used the secondary cold skill with blizzard last ladder. I'm thinking fully synergized FO with fireball/metoer. I don't like meteorb build cuase i don't like fire as a primary. Blizz and fireball work quite well together since you can get off about 3 between blizz casts. Not sure how FO and fireball will work. I think fire is strong enough with 46 points in it to take out cold immunes (thats what i ended up with this season and never had a problem). Cold recieved 54 points for blizz+1synergy+rest in mastery.
AndyChrono said:Blizz sorcs are only better at MF-ing if you use a bot. Why? Because bots aren't smart enough to aim orb correctly to maximize damage output. Blizz needs at least 10 times the damage of FO to kill single monsters (i.e Act Bosses) at even the same speed as a good FO user. Blizz shines the most against small, compact groups of monsters (i.e Baal's minions).
