Blizzard sorc with Froze Orb

I want to make a new sorc, one with Blizzard, but I thougt if altso maxing FO will help me in certain ways. My aim is to run Mephisto, Pindle, Baal and Tunnles.

As for skills:

Max Blizzard
Max Frozen Orb
Max Ice Bolt
8 CM (Or atleast 17 after items)
Max Ice Blast
Rest in Glacial Spike

I though it would be a good idea, since FO is good for crowd control, and too my luck is IB a synergi for Blizzard, and maybe it speeds up the endless tunnel runs. I play single player.

And for people suggesting me to make a Meteorb, too late, I have one :laugh:

Any feedback?
 
That sounds like an interesting build :)

Orb on left click and Blizz on right click, both timired spells so you might want to mix in some Teleport for mobility.

Energy Shield would be your enemy here.. are you planning on using Frozen Armor? Static? Those might help your build's success.

Snowclash might be your best belt choice. +Skill items would also be what you would need here.. focusing on FCR would be next to worthless for your timired spells but helpful for Teleport.

Nightwing's Veil is what you need for your helm.. very good stats for a Cold Sorceress.

Lidless or Spirit shield.. Moser's if you need resistances.

Are you using a Merc?

Write back with what you think.. I don't have much time at work to BS on here lol.
 
I guess I don't see why you would want to have two mediocre skills of the same element when you could have two mediocre skills of different elements or one really good spell of one element. IMO, pure Blizzard would be better than the build you detailed in every way. You say FO is good for crowd control but I don't understand how. Glacial Spike is much better than FO for crowd control.
 
Enigmation: Yes, I was thinking about getting Frozen Armor and Static. I was thinking about Spirit for sheild. Yes I will be using a Holy Freeze Merc with "Obedience", Shaftstop and Andy Face.

PhatTrumpet: I was thinking FO because it can clear areas like the Tunnles really fast, or atleast I think, because my Meteorb doses only 380 FO dmg, and she kills pretty fast and she is untwinked, so a twinked FO with max IB would do even more dmg, maybe its not the best for crow control, but it fits my playstyle. Althou a skill planner would be nice to check this out. I dont wanna make another Dual Ele sorc, rather work on the one I got now. But when it all comes down to the point, I need a strong build that can wack Pindle and Meph fast at player 6-8.

Honestly, a MeteOrb would work the fastest... if you could manage at least +10 to skills for a decent Meteor and Orb.

A ES Sorceress would work well also.. Max Telekinisis and go the lightning route..

BUT

Since you want this route let's see...

Honestly, I'd have to recommend using Max LM and Nova with a fast caste rate. This would be a good skill point layout.. Nova has no synergies and LM boosts it nicely. Your build would be complete in the 80-90's though. With some planning it could work.

Nova slices cows to pieces.. the stun is what keeps them at a distance.

Blizzard could be cast, Static to bring them down and then Teleport in for some Nova blasts. Groups drop fast to the Frozen Orb/Nova mixture.. add an Infinity Merc and you are in business.

Enigmagination: Inifinity's are pretty rare in SP, so there is no way im making a Light Sorc.

But nevermind, Im gonna make a pure Blizzard, atleast I know how effective they can be.

kk, here's what's wrong with ur build.
u must max out G spike be4 ice bolt or ice blast(after all, ur main atk skill is still bliz), because that way u can freez a chunk of enemies and bliz them all at once
second is that i want to ask, y would u choose orb anyway? it does about 1/7of the dmg of bliz, even it has good crownd control... causes about 5 time as much time and mana to kill
try pure bliz, u will find it's good

with a pure bone necro and +13 all skills i cant do anything in hell, but with a pure bliz sorc, nakked, the same level, i can easily tunnel and baal in hell level, so make ur pick
