    Ball or Meteor`?

    Im making an Ice/Fire sorc, ive got most gears available to me but i cant decide on if i want to max fire ball before meteor to use with Frozen orb.

    I hate the fact that meteor has that delay and its nice to have fineball as an instant spammable attack.

    What difference in damage do the two do anyways? since ill be able to fire of a considerable amount of balls in the time it takes to do one meteor (if i manage to aim it good).

    Bit confused :/

    Well, even with meteorb you tend to become more of an orb-fireball sorc the higher your +skills get, so if fireball is your thing then go for it.

    I use Fireball in 99.9% of cases, making exceptions only during 1-3 waves of Baal Minions and Nihlathak (I just recently found an easy way to kill him, if he's not FI: Tele in a corner of his room, drop 2-3 Meteors and tele out ASAP).

    Hmm, I seem to be more of a meteor supporter. Then again, I mostly use my sorc for Nihlathak runs. Basic strategy is cast two Meteors on him, spam FB and mow down lots of ice boars till they strike, then tele on top of him and fireball him until he dies. If the room is messy then I would use Fireball more to take out dangerous/annoying monsters (vipers, witches). But IMO it's not Fireball doing all of the work, for me it's more like fifty-fifty.

    Hm. I think it depents on who will you attack with it.
    Meteor is alway better when going on act bosses, or baal minions.
    Fireball is a thing that I used 99% when I was leveling. 1% that I use meteor was when there were large groups of enemies or minions packs.

    I use fire ball 99.9% of the time. The only things I meteor are
    1) Large group of non moving + strong enemies (which are extremely rare).
    2) Diablo. (I can stack like 8 meteors before he spawns)
    3) First 3 wave of Baal.

    I use like 85-15. As I usually build my Meteorbs from scratch I like to drop meteors inbetween fireball waves for max output damage. Out of that, is just for moat tricks or for hiting 2 groups of enemies at the same time...
