Do they have any non PvP uses? Even if it's MFing in an area with some immunes, like lightning sorcs can do in The Pit by ignoring the few archers. The damage of fire sorcs is sexy, you don't hear much about them, and I've never made one.
I remember finding a war staff with two sockets, as well as +3 to fireball, and +2 to warmth. Needless to say, I made Leaf. I was a very happy man.
BTW: @Black Rat. You avatar brings back so many memories of Crusader: No Regret. I remember tearing my hair out one night working out how to get past two rocket turrets, using only one spider mine... Ah... such good times...
I LOVED my old Meteor/Blaze sorc in 1.09! She was a HC character with a barb merc (merc was using a KingÂ´s Grace Legend Sword). She made it all the way to Hell Crystalline Passage where she got killed by a Holy Shock Spectal Hit something Moon Lord boss.
(Brrr, thinking about Ooze Razor still gives me the shivers...)
