Is day better then night? Well you see it all depends on what you want to do, and where. Both excel in their respective situations. But if you want a preference, I personally generally find the places where you MF with a cold sorce easier (Mausy, crypts, and even Baal) then Fire sorces. I also think that you can handle immunities far better then a fire sorc can (wand of lower resist + 20 cold master = gg cold immune monster). Even if you use lower resist on a fire immune w/a fire sorc, you dont have mastery and your damage will be greatly decreased.

The problem is that cold sorces are generally less versatile then fire sorces. With a fire sorc you can just pump meteor, fireball and fire mastery with 20 into frozen orb and the rest into cold mastery. With cold mastery, most people generally use Blizzard for its effectiveness, but that cuts you out of any other skill to use since it practically requires you to max 2-3 synergies, + skill and mastery.

Other then that, I cant give you anymore advice. You havent told us what you want. :)

Can we also lvl her, play her, mf with her and give you the l33t itamz?
</SARCASM>

You STILL haven't told what you want to do with her. You only say; "I want to MF, Gib me build" Now I ask you, what is the fun in playing anothers exact char? Why not just try it out, follow a general guide, and see what you like best?

Just remember;

- Skills depend on what you ultimately want to be doing with her
- Stat points depend on what you want to wear

You haven't told us either.

Chill dude...Chill

I think your comments are a bit harsh considering he probably trying this out for the first time. It understandable with the amount of posting like this that it can get very annoying but without being too unpleasant if you feel that unhappy just don't post rather give a comment with a superiority complex.

If anyone else (or possibly myself without taking credit) wants to put something together for beginners it probably going to cut the number of postings like this.

Anyway to answer your question, here are 2 builds that quite popular for MF.

1. Meteor/Orb sorceress - Look at stickied guide at the top of the sorceress forum.

2. Pure Cold BLizzard sorceress - Probably need a general guide made about this from the number of postings but basically.

MAX Blizzard
MAX Cold Mastery
MAX Glacial SPike
MAX Ice Blast
MAX Ice bolts

with a few one point wonders in.

Static field
Warmth
Telekins (preq)
Teleport
You can also opt for Energy shield (but all depeonds on opinion) Personally i dun think it worth getting.

Stats

Str- Enough for your best eq
Dex - 200 (approx) for max block but depends again on shield etc. Or leave at base if your not going for a shield
Vit - Everything else you got left.
Nrg - Base (is what i chose) but been recommend between no more 50-70 tops.

Peace

well if its for MFing i have a pure firesorc which can do hell pindle runs v easily with her hell defiance merc..mr merc will tank pindle and buddies while i drop meteors and fireballs on them..they are normally gone before the gang outside gets up and starts growling..the fire immune pindle will be taken care of by my merc..

well this is def not the best build out there but it does decent damage (bout a 5k fireball and 9k meteor) even wif full MF gear..so.. :embarrass

max meteor
max fireball
max firebolt
max firemastery
afew points here and a few points there in warmth, tele, prereqs and stuff... :innocent:

It takes very little experience to click on one of the countless topics related to your inquiry and get your answer. One might argue, even less since you dont have to wait fora reply.

no not really..as i think someone in other threads mentioned, pindle can be immune to everything..mostly poison if i am not wrong though it is not uncommon to see dual immune pindle like fire/poi immune, ice/poi immune or XXX/phy immune :innocent:
