How should I build a blizz sorc?

lo,

I'm fairly new to diablo 2 and I decided to make a blizz sorc because I heard they deal alot of damage :) I had a couple of questions..

I will be maxing blizzard and al 3 synergies so that leaves me with about 32 points... Now I wonder, how much should I put in Cold Mastery? And what should I do with the remaining points?

Also, my stat points.... How much should I put in energy, strength, vit and so on?

Last question :)) Which synergy (or maybe CM?) should I max after maxing blizzard?

Thanks in advance.

Hello

For a Blizzard sorc most ppl goes pure Blizzard, i.e maxing Blizzard and its synergies and CM and 1 point in Tele and Static and Warmth... That leaves you with 5 skill points left and a big need for party/merc to help with cold immunes :p But in return you get a skill that deals insane amounts of damage to all who is'nt...

For the road there I'm not really sure but I think it goes something like this...
1 point in all prereqs/synergies
Some more in Ice Blast or GS
Maxing Blizzard ASAP
10 in CM
Maxing Ice Blast or GS
Maxing CM
Maxing rest of synergies in random order
Finished at lvl 94
Where the rest of the skill points go I dont really know but maybe in warmth to help you to keep Energy at base ??? :D

Hope all goes well

You've got the general idea but your missing the fact that CM is way more important than Blizzard's synergies. CM should always be maxed before Blizzards synergies.

Would maxed CM really be better off than going for synergies? At the clvl CM would be maxed (clvl 50) you should still be in nightmare meaning no huge amount of cold resistance. That would practically kill off the extra CM points since -100 is the lowest resistances monsters can have. I would aim for 10 points in CM and max it later (like mrwallin wrote), you should have gear to boost it 7 or so additional points anyway :)

ive heard that going past 17 on cm isnt truely needed till hell runs, if at all...and wouldnt the extra dmg added to the blizz be more useful?

CM lowers the monster's resistance to Cold. Sort of like how people die in 1 shot from a Black Soul if they don't have any resists to lightning.
