    CL/FO Sorceress needs help

    Hello I am sort of new to making sorceress' however this is the first one i made and I am following Monk's guide but in a different skill training order ( I think this might be the problem?)

    So far it is in nightmare mode, act 5

    Frozen Orb 20
    Cold Mastery 1
    Lightning 20
    Chain Lightning 16
    Lightning Mastery 1

    I have no more skill points left, and I am wondering if I level in the future where should I place the next skill points?

    I have a feeling I have put them in the wrong place already :(

    I am trynig to get this character to be able to finish off hell mode act 5 and it is not looking good at the moment, I am struggling :(

    All I've got in terms of equipment is a haemosu's armor, tal rasha's belt and a few resisitance gear, my resistance in nightmare is quite high (almost max, except poison)

    However I am wield a staff that gives +50 resistance all so that sort of helps but stops me from wearing a shield and a one handed wand

    And tips guys and gals? (Am I lacking in gear?)

    I am level 57 at the moment

    I tend to use frozen orb more as a main attack

    I was hoping to use lightning for hell mode

    Is that where I have gone wrong?

    Maybe I should have placed them in cold mastery instead?

    1) Are you playing D2 Classic or LoD?
    2) In either case the word is that you should use an orb and shield (or sword/wand and shield) for Maximum block
    3) Resists are important above all
    4) Where have you placed your stats?
    5) Max Chain lightning and lightning mastery, then worry about cold mastery.
    6) Get faster cast rate items :)

    Level 57 in Act 5 Nightmare is the problem. By the time you graduate from NM you should be at or over level 70. I would suggest going and doing public NM baal runs to get to a higher level. Then go back and finish NM and move on to hell.

    As far as your skill allotment, you need to pump LM first. Then go back and finish Chain Lightning. Get CM to around 8 or so also.

    If you are having problems with mana or damage with the lightning tree, rely more on Lightning than CL until you can get some more power going.

    And as always, keep looking for better gear. :)
