First Matriarch! Meteorb sorc

So after becoming frustrated with my first attempt at a single-player matriarch/patriarch (70 fishymancer stuck in Hell maggot lair) I decided to make a meteorb sorceress due to the fact that I had found an Occulus with my necro.

Name: Yttriac
Class: Sorceress (meteorb)
LVL: 81

Str: 165
Dex: 143 (33% chance to block)
Vit: 233
Energy: 70
Defense: 1068

Cold: 66
Fire: 59
Lightning: 75
Poison: 75

Fire prereqs: 4
Warmth: 1 (9)
Fireball: 20 (28)
Meteor: 20 (28)
Fire Mastery: 10 (18)

Cold prereqs: 5
Frozen Orb: 20 (28)
Cold Mastery: 8 (16)

Lightning prereqs: 1
Teleport: 1 (9)
Static Field 1 (9)

Weapon: Occulus
Shield: Spirit Monarch Shield
Head: Sazabi's Mental Sheath
Chest: Skins of the Vipermagi (+34 resistances)
Hands: Frostburn
Feet: Silkweave
Waist: IK belt
Ring 1: Rare ring (8%LL, 7 LR, 25 FR)
Ring 2: Rare ring (16 str, 23 PR, 30 CR)
Amulet: Rare amulet (1 to sorc skills, 24 str, 26 life)

Charms: Random assortment of resist, life, and MF charms.

Merc: Act 2 NM Holy Freeze merc
Head: Tal Rasha's Horadric Crest
Chest: Haemosu's Adamant
Weapon: Eth Honor Partizan (131-300 dmg with only lvl 27 requirement, merc tore nightmare a new hole)


Normal- /p1 up to act 4. /p8 act 4 + 5. Most annoying of all the difficulties. I should have just picked up some early skills and then re-spec'd later, but I decided to just melee through (Sigon set was a nice help). Duriel was a huge pain in the ***, but the rest was bearable. When I attained meteor around act 4, it was on!

Nightmare- /p8 all the way thru. Devastated nightmare. Combo of my new-found frozen orb spell and my mercs new eth honor partizan made this difficulty a complete joke.

Hell- /p1 all the way thru. Pretty easy besides running into certain sets of archers and cold+fire resistant named monsters. Gloam-like teleporting, lightning shooting monsters beat me up in act 3 before my resists had shaped up. Bosses were all cake.

All of my gear besides my occulus was MF'd as I progressed on this character. Was able to procure a Wealth armor and some other decent MF gear around level 50 or 60, whereupon I began running mephisto for some upgrades. In hell I ran the countess, andariel, and mephisto a few times as I progressed.

Notable drops along the way:
Mal (not from forge, my forge runes sucked)
Eth Titans!!!! :)
reg Titans
IK boots, gloves, belt
Couple of +skill grand charms (i forget which)

Time to get my fishymancer thru hell! Then onto my next char, a javazon perhaps? :)

Congrats on your first MAT! A sorc is exellent to get more good stuff, and a meteorb better than most others! Onwards!
