    fire sorc mf?

    hey i was thinkin of making a fire sorc tell me what u guys think...
    20 firebolt
    20 fireball (main skill)
    20 meteor
    20 fire mastery
    some pre reqs
    1 tele
    as much as possible in Warmth

    Gear...
    5/5 fire facet Shako
    5/5 +3/35+ fire fathom/spirit kite shield with 30%+ fcr
    Switch:6 Ist crystal sword/4 ist kite shield
    maras
    2x soj
    5/5 fire facet ormus w/ +3 fireball
    war travs
    magefists
    arachs
    Gheeds
    anni
    7x fireskill charm
    7x 5resist all charms

    ...with this build i can get an insane amount of fire damage from fireball and meteor, the 105 fcr breakpoint, pretty good resists, nasty mf (400+ with switch) and low points in str/dex/energy so i can pump Vit

    with a act2 holy freeze merc w/ infinity polearm, vamp and shaftstop i would have insane killing power (conviction) with kick ass mf on switch and a good tank in my merc...what do u guys think?

    Looks pretty sweet! I prefer dual elements for a bit more versatility but I don't have Infinity:) Since you can obviously afford it, put an Um in your Shaftstop or Gaze to give your merc max resists.

    Maybe get a point in Static Field to help against bosses.

    I've been using a Fire sorc to MF and its been really good. I don't have the crazy gear like you list here, but I still kill pretty fast. The only trouble is Countess (I depend on my merc) since shes immune and many times, a lot of other bosses get random Fire immunity, like Eldritch, Pindle, Mephisto's Council, etc. Not as much as you'd think, but its still annoying.

    I would load up on mf get into the 600 at least and hit Hell Andy over and over it might take patcients and I havn't done it myself, but my friend loaded up his sorc with at least 800 mf and killed hell andy and in of a course about 3 weeks he had 2 sojs and multiples of every good uniq she can drop.

    hmm thanks guys im pretty rich but the 10 ists on weapon switch is going to def set me back a lot :rolleyes: but i really like this build because of the very high killing capability paired with a good MF% and good chance of survival. Although obviously a dual tree sorc would fair better for lvling in hell, i think boss running with this sorc will go much quicker

    hey guys quickly before i trade for my fathom...
    http://www.diabloii.net/items/uniques/class-sor.shtml
    that says that eschutas gives +20% fire SKILL damage but the fathom gives +20-40% fire damage, this is the same thing right? (ormus also gives +15% fire SKILL damage).

    ahh damn i knew somethin was wrong when i read that, lol. i guess the best second choice would be eschutas then with a 5/-5?

    with that i would have +50% fire damage and -15% enemy resists combined with all my other equip and facets...combined with a lvl 41 fully synergized fireball doing an average 16k already (according to d2items.com), i would be doing some major damage (not to mention my mercs conviction aura) and with some nice mf on switch, thanks for the help guys
