HC Full Blizzard sorc questions I'm making a hardcore blizzard sorc, single element. The character is primarily for MF'ing, but would also be able to protect herself/others from random PKers who come into games and hostile everyone (which I've found Blizz + CM to be extremely good at stopping). The build would be fairly simple for cold: 20 CM, 20 Blizz, 20 Gspike, 20 IceBlast, rest of the points into IceBolt. But the rest of the points I have some questions on: Obviously 1 pt into Teleport + prereq (telekinesis). Should I put the 3 pts into prereqs for Energy Shield as well? Since it's HC and sorc has low life, I'm guessing so. Or should I try to find a wand with +energy shield, and use that on switch? What about cold armors? From what I hear Shiver armor is the best for teleporting through areas, but why wouldnt frozen be the best? It actually freezes. I'm assuming it doesn't freeze long enough on hell difficulty. Should I put a point into Shiver armor, or try to find a wand on switch for it? Is one point into Warmth worth it? For gear, keep in mind I dont have anything that adds to stat points to begin with, but I can guess I might have a bit of +str/dex. So, I might have to put a lot of hardpoints towards my gear. I will have a teleporting gear set (for surviving/rushing) and a MF set (for boss killing). The highest str I think I'll need is 110 for Tgods, right? For surviving I can just use Mosers for a ton of resists and high block for my shield, then switch to rhyme or some MF for boss killing. What shield should I calculate my max block with (obviously for survival)? And any suggestions you have, feel free to post them.
