    Alternate Meteorb Build

    Hey all. This is my first post and I was hoping to get some advice on a sorceress build. I haven't played in about five years and have just recently got back into it. Unfortunately, all of my characters have expired. My first character on my new account is a blizzorb sorceress. She's now level 63, and I'm into hell difficulty. I'm playing with a buddy, so it hasn't been too hard, but I would like to be able to solo Mephisto and other parts of hell. It seems that a pure cold sorceress isn't the best build for this.

    So, I was thinking about using one of my respecs with Akara to become a meteorb sorceress. The thing is, I really like the cold tree. So, I was wondering if it would be possible for me to reverse the build? I see most people put points into fire mastery, fire bolt, meteor, etc. while only putting a few points in ice bolt and cold mastery. Would it be a bad idea to instead max cold mastery, max ice bolt, and max frozen orb? Has anyone tried this? If you have, is it just effective?

    It's been a while since I played, so apologies in advance if I'm overlooking something.

    Yes you can invest more points in the ice tree if you plan to use it as your main attack and the fire tree as your secondary (like I do).

    The build is efficent in hell, you can solo any boss, but you need decent gears.

    Skills are:

    Frozen Orb 20
    Ice Bolt 20
    Ice Mastery 17* (17 softpoints)

    Fire Bolt 20
    Fireball 20
    Fire Mastery 1

    Telekinesis 1
    Teleport 1
    Static Field 1

    I have even added 1 point in the Cold Armor.


    I wear full tal set, magefist and monarch spirit. My rings are just a 100mana ring and the dwarf star.

    Works wonderfully.

    Getting CM past level 17 will dramatically increase your damage versus anything with more than 0 cold resist. Which is almost everything in hell. I like to get it to lvl 23 (130%) before spending the rest in ice bolt.

    Socialism's build is awesome :yes:
