hell mf for blizzard sorc

i read somewhere that there was a place that never has cold immunes. where is this? cuz im in act 2 hell, but i mostly just run around act 1...seems everywhere i go there are cold immunes. :(

also at level 72, should i be mfing in hell yet or lvling up or still mfing in nightmare?

if you got good gear i would do Ancient Tunnels in Act 2 Lost City, no cold immunes there and its a tc lvl 85 area.


if your gear isn't that hot, do Mausoleum. Its also tc lvl 85 and no cold immunes, and MUCH safer since everything in there crawls around at 1 mph. no cold immunes there either, just fewer bosspacks.

Yup, Mausoleum is definitely a good place for a Blizzsorc. It's just occasionally iffy trying to outrun all the cold immunes in the Cold Plains getting to the Burial Grounds. And since you're level 72, you should probably level in Nightmare until 75, and then level in hell until 85 or so before really MFing.

thanks guys

maybe 1 last tip...i have gone with a defiance merc. figured holy freeze would be a bit pointless since im a cold sorc. is it possible to make a defiance merc effective enough to kill in hell? without ridiculous uber equipment?

Sure is. I used a Defiance merc with my Blizzsorc as well, since I was too lazy to level up a NM Holy Freeze merc. He was using a Ferocious War Pike, Eth Duriel's Shell, and a 8% LL magical helm for a long time. He did just fine, as long as I fed him a potion when he couldn't leech. NM Holy Freeze mercs help Blizzsorcs too, as they can freeze Cold Immunes, which you won't be able to touch.

A lvld Defiance merc can kill fine in hell w/o nice equip.

A cheap setup would be:

Helm - Stealskull/Crown of thieves
Armor - Duriels
Weapon - Bonehew (socket w/ 2xamn)

Bonehew might not be a very cheap weapon. If you have time, you can always shop for a Cruel War Pike at Larzuk, since it only costs a couple 100,000 gold.

HF is my fav

HF is NOT useless for a cold sorc, it's a different kind of freeze and it affects cold immunes as well.

My OrbMeteor (I maxxed CM instead of focus on Meteor) uses a HF merc with Reaper toll, and it's crazy. Cold, HF, Decrepify - the monsters are moving in sssllllloooowwww motion...
