Blizz sorc vs Hammerdin

I built a brand new shiney blizz sorc with nightwing, facets, high fcr and I seem to be having problems with my kill speed. I seem to run into a lot of cold immunes doing solo mf runs and I am not seeing why people recomend this build over hammerdins. I have put a lot of time and items into this build and am wondering if I missed something or if this is just something I will have to deal with due to having a one tree sorc build

If you're a pure Blizz MFer, then you're not meant to go monster massacre rampages. You're only objective is to take down Andy / Meph as fast as you can, and then repeat the same thing over again. Unless accompanied by a good merc, (even with so you'll be slow) you will be ineffective when trying to clear an area in hell.

Where do you mf run? Like the guys said, blizz mfers are only for meph/andy.
If you wanna go pit or baal you need a dual tree sorc or hammerdin (unless your merc is godly o_O)

YOU GO AND MELEE THEM WITH UR LIL ORB!!!!!!!

nah im joking, for your question i would say this

this has been disccused b4 and it has come to this, hammerdin is more versatile able to run just about anywhere except act 3 temple with the magic immune monkeys. Sorcs are able to run meph andy and pindle better then hammerdin since with sorcs you can have much better mf then a hammerdin.

so if you dont plan on running baal, stick with sorc

There ARE other options than andy/meph:

Ancient tunnels (Act 2, lost city) - no cold immunes (except bosses) and as high an area level as the pit.

Mauseleum/crypt (Act 1, next to Blood Raven). 2 high lvl areas where almost all monsters are light immune.

Pindleskin (occasionally hes cold immune - but anyway)

Cows - blizz sorc does decent here though there are better chars for this
