Experts: Why Meteor and not Firewall? OK, to all you sorceress experts out there, I am confused. Everyone seems to be in favor of a Meteorb build for good MFing and I have some decent MF gear, so my plan is to make an MFing sorc. My question is this: Why not pick Firewall instead of Meteor for my fire attack? My thinking is this, I don't need to spend points in synergies for an effective FW (only 22 pts. to max with prereqs and another 20 for FM = 42) and it has no casting delay (which I hate). At lvl 20 with maxed FM it averages 3377-3439 per second for 3.6 seconds across 30 yards. The same number of points spent in Meteor (25 pts. to max and another 17 for FM = 42) does 2313-2467 over 4 yds. and then a measly 624-681 per second. Granted, Meteor is cheaper mana-wise (26 vs. 41 when maxed), but if I can handle the extra mana cost, I can start pumping the skill 6 levels earlier for survivability early on, save 3 skill points on the inital skills AND save all the synergy points required to make Meteor really effective. That means I can have a maxed FireWall and a maxed Frozen Orb for only 47 Points. After 1 in warmth, static, telekineseis, and teleport. I am only at 51 points and I can start pumping Fire (20) and Cold (17) masteries. Though FW may not do the damage of a fully synergized Meteor, this build finishes at only 85 points or lvl 74 with quests... As opposed to the standard build which doesn't finish until 101 points are earned at lvl 90! I don't know that I will ever get that high. You folks are all very knowledgeable, so please tell me what am I missing?
