    Blizzard vs. Meteorb sorceress. Which one?

    I want to make a magic find sorceress, but I can't decide what kind to make. I just want all of your opinions, I know you all are smarter than me. Comment on this thread, I can't wait for your insight. Thanks, cabriolet.

    Blizzard (if you have already made it to Mephisto, or preferable past Anya so you can do Pindle runs). I generally go Meteorb -> Blizzard, as Meteorb is excellent at getting through the game, and Blizzard is excellent at killing bosses, so long as you're okay with using the respec system.

    A standard run on BNet for me would be: Mephisto (w/ racks, his armor rack can drops Tal's Armor), Pindleskin, Ancient Tunnels. Usually fills 3-5 minutes, which is plenty of time to not realm down. If you're going SP (which is all I play now), I'd obviously recommend re-rolling maps and sticking to one target at a time.

    Alright, thanks. I'll have no trouble getting through the game. Which build
    Is more expensive?

    Blizzard is the cheaper option. Having -eCR from Cold Mastery makes resistant monsters/bosses a non-issue, and Blizzard + Ice Blast is a great boss/mob killing combo.

    They'll be using the same items, so one is not more expensive than the other, unless you want an Infinity on your Meteorb (which I recommend). It's not mandatory, though.

    Pure lightning beats them both with the right gear.

    But really it depends more on which you enjoy, since mf is ultimately about repetition. Pure blizzard (cold) allows you to focus on one element so you can improve general killspeed at the cost of avoiding immunes. Meteorb offers more choices in the hunting ground department and the kill speed difference only becomes noticeable if (when compared to pure cold) the gear difference is significant.

    Not exactly. Pure Blizzard can kill well with ridiculous cheap gear. I'm a fan of Meteorb, but you can compete with Blizzard in terms of killing speed per buck against Meph/Pindle/Andy.
