    Make a pure orber with max ES.

    Or atleast some kind of cold sorc. Fire is not so much fun imo. Fireball is not so good at crowd control and meteor isn't either.

    Hey Northman, did you decided there were too many decisions in the path of the paladin?
    Don't worry we've all dropped builds for great reasons like, 'my bowzon is just really unlucky'and 'I had to ask myself, could I really be bothered?'

    Hope you have fun making a ES Orber. :thumbup:

    make a meteorb (fire/cold hybrid)
    skills max:
    frozen orb
    fireball
    meteor
    fire mastery
    about 10 in cold mastery

    pretty much use fireball against cold imunes and frozen orb against everything else.

    I have no clue why its called meteorb since I i use fireball much more often and only use meteor against bosses.

    I just tried playing my gf's light sorc and after about 10 minutes of that I knew I never wanted to touch another pally again.

    Wow, that looks really interesting. Does the power of those skills suffer because you don't have enough points to dump into the synergists (sp)?

    Triple post :rolleyes:

    Anyway ES = Energy Shield.

    As for dmg of course fire is not gona be as high as if you went pure fire sorc but with decent equip you should be able to solo hell.

    My meteorb using Tal Rashas set deals 4k fireball , 10k meteor and about 300-400 orb dmg. Don't be fooled by the numbers. Frozen orb deals more dmg then anything else and fire ball is alot stronger then meteor because you can rapid fire it.

    ES might be useful for light sorc because most of the attacks are long range. Or a pure orber because of the excess extra skill points. but for a meteorb Ill say no ES. Pure vita build is best.

    Pure vita means you don't put any points in dex, only in vita(and enough str for your items of course), as opposed to max block build, where you put enough points in dex for max block and then any remaining points in vita.

    haha... if you decide you do want the pleasure of smashing things again, try a barb, they specialise in hitting things - and that's it.
