Blizzard sorc

Hi all,

I'm thinking of making a blizzard sorc and was wondering people's opinion on the best armor for a PVP bliz sorc.

I was thinking either viper or ormus (15% cold + 3 ice blast) but seen as tho i can afford good stuff i was wondering what the best 1 would be. Will + 3 ice blast be a good skills as it's a synergy or should i hold out for a blizzard + 3 ormus?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. (on armor or any other items for my bliz sorc as im not totally sure yet)

thanks.

Jim

blizzard of course. the 3 to ice blast won't give ur blizzard any dmg, cause the bouns only works with HARD PTS that u put in.

definately a +3 blizzard ormus. that 15% cold dmg really helps.

whether u should hold out for one of those or not is up to you and how long it will take u to get one.

And also on how much you're willing to pay for a +3 Blizzard Ormus. These are very popular, same as +3 Fire Ball and +3 Chain Lightning.

Well I can afford one I'm not sure what they go for..

anyone know how much roughly they go for???

Also I was wondering what my damage output would be roughly if I built it like this...

20 ice bolt
20 ice blast
20 bliz
20 Mastrey
1 warmth
1 ES and pre req's
Rest in telekenisis

Standard equip
Ormus facet
shako facet
wizardspike/ocu facets
lidless/whistans facets
mara
2 soj
arachnid
10 skillers
anni

Any 1 got a similar setup between lv 80 - 90?

what sort of blizzard damage are we talking?

thanks

Jim

If you have a +3 blizzard ormus:
6285-6507

Otherwise:
5700-5913

This is before cold faucets and ormus' increased damage and using lidless/occulus.

1.35 * damage gives you:
8484-8784
or
7695-7982

I'm not gonna give you any more calculations. But this gives you a good neighborhood for damage output.

Thanks all for the input.

I'm making a PVP Bliz sorc and a few things are bugging me.

1) With the equipment I use I will get over 8k blizzard damage which is surely a 1 hit killer against nearly anyone right?

2) The reason it's only between 8-9 k i because ill not be maxing 1 of the synergy's so that i can spend the points in telekenesis thus greatly improving energy shield which surely is a vital pvp skill?

3) Should I have base energy and more life or put about 70 or so in energy to improve my mana shield?

feedback on these thouhgt would be most appreciated.


thanks

Jim.

Snowclash is interesting does that add more damage than arachnid then?

I still think arachnid is better overall tho..

Can any 1 help on the energy shield / telekenisis question ??

Also I know this isn't a trade forum but if any 1 has got a blizzard ormus I am willing to pay good for it..

For equip look out for :
ormus+3blizzard
snowclash (as said previously)
eshuta's orb
night wing's veil (this is what u really want!)
rainbow cold facet jewels (all valuable items!)
About energy shield and telekinesis i'd only put points in them if i was gonna max them ... looks hard if u want all of blizzard's synergies, would hav been better going for max blocking with a nice cold armor. but i dont hav much (good) experiences of ES, only that its a good way to get killed a bit like ocu's teleport,it can save you and can kill you especially with low points in it.

hum forgoten to say ... improving ur mana is useless because anyway your mana bulb will fill out in no time.

I hope u know that ES is counted BEFORE resists, that mean when you take damage from elemental attacks ur mana will go down as if u had no resists, in other words your bulb is flat in 1 powerfull attack, a sudden death most of the time ...
Also if you are maxing both ES and TK it could be a good thing,i hope u hav frostburns to help with it.

Well my thought's on improving my mana supply is that:

1) I will have a Call to arms which will greatly increase my mana supply and as I am Thinking about 1 point energy shield, 20 telekenisis I think you may need the extra mana in duels.

2) I did'nt know that resists were not taken into consideration with energy shield and so surely this is another reason to boost my mana as with 20 in teleskenisis Energy shield should be quite stable if I invested some points in energy.

But like I say I'm not an expert on energy shield and telekenisis but I do know max telekenisis will make it so 1 point of damage will take 0.75 mana... Is this accurate?

Also as I am able to get skillers and good items I will be able to get enough damage 8k + which i'm sure can kill most people in 1 bliz as I have a powerful assassin that gets killed in 1 hit from a 6k bliz...

Any more input would be helpful.

thanks

I think the person that said Eschuta's meant Death's Fathom, as you are correct, its the ultimate blizzard sorc weapon.
