It's Hell Viable, although you'll want to get some practice aiming your Firewalls.i herd of a build where u max frozen orb, cold mastery, ice bolt , fire wall and fire mastery has any one ever built one and do u think it will be hell viable:wink3:
The problem is to keep frozen cold imune monsters. :grin:It's Hell Viable, although you'll want to get some practice aiming your Firewalls.
First max Firewall and Frozen Orb (putting 1 point into each mastery at clvl 30), then max Fire Mastery, then put 10 points in Cold Mastery, then max Ice Bolt, then come back and max Cold Mastery. Leveling will be tough at first but after you get Orb, it'll speed up considerably. Most people don't like this build because of the lack of a spammable spell, but you can just spam Glacial Spike to keep everything frozen during the Frozorb and Firewall timers (or spam Teleport to keep yourself away from the enemies).
The damage was raised when the timer was added, so the result is that you're still dealing as much damage per second, it's just that you have to be more judicious about where you want to raise your walls (and Firewall is now much easier on the graphics card). No other skill is going to deal more damage per second with a 23 point investment (and I don't think anything can top it with a 42 point investment, either).firewall was nerf'd hXc in 1.10. u used to be able to spam them and fill rooms. ^.^
Another trick is to learn how to aim your walls. If the monster is approacing from due north of you, do not cast the wall ABOVE you... cast it immediately to your right or your left. That will cause your sorc to create a north/south facing Wall. When the enemy walks towards you, he'll remain in the flames the entire time. No more worries about freezing or slowing monsters- trick them into staying in the wall under their own free will.That's what a Holy Freeze merc is for. Sure, they're not frozen, but slow enough to stay in the Wall long enough to fry.
