How to get my skills higher.

I'm on a pretty tight budget, but i was wondering how to get my fire skill levels higher. They are currently at + 9, and i have a bunch of open spots.
Weapon: Hex Fire +3
Armor: Que-Hegan's +1
Amulet: +3
Shield: Lidless +1
Ring: Bul Kathos +1
So this leaves one ring spot, helm, belt, boots and gloves, Should I try for magefist? Shako is an obvious solution, but I'm so poor. Thanks.

With beiing poor your choices are rather limited :/

Magefist are very nice! Take those :D


Other obvious stuff:
Arachnid Mesh +1
SOJ +1
Annihilus Charm +1


Maybe more reachable or tradeable:
Fireskill charms! :D as many as you can get!

Until i had all the gear i wanted i did NM Meph. The thing with him is that your chances for items to a certain lvl is higher to drop since all those above that lvl cannot drop, due to NM Mephis own clvl.


He can drop really nice stuff on NM :D Had a couple of skullder an such, which made me able to get the gear i have now.

Ya, guess I'll be doing NM meph. But i can't wear my mf gear until 103 strength...should i just lvl thrice, or get a ring of the titan?

I think NM meph and NM baal are the best place to MF for starters. It took 3 sorcs for me to get the items i'm currently using, which are quite nice IMO. In my experience, synergized orb with max CM with a high level static is the easiest way do NM runs. Pure blizzard sorc can do the trick too, but I think it's harder because of the steeper mana cost and it doesn't chill many monsters in the screen (so your merc will have a harder time).

Early on the best way to get +skills is the Lore runeword, sigon's shield, and a rare orb. Magefist is nice too if you're a fire sorc, but IMO a fire sorc requires a better merc and high mana pool to be good.
