Hydrorb vs meteorb for 1.13? ... or however you would call her. Hello, I havn't played diablo 2 in a long time and I figured I'd get back in the game now, just in time for the new ladder to start! However, I would like to make a MF sorc to start with but I'm not quite sure what specc to go after. I've been reading the forums (and some others aswell, sorry!) and it's obvious that the meteorb is the one to go for. However, reading the patch notes we've all seen that hydra is getting a boost. Hydra was viable before so this boost should put her up to the challenge! My question is, is the hydrorb "just as good" as the meteorb for MFing everywhere? Or potentially better? They both seem viable, but I cannot calculate which one would give out more dps or be more versatile since they behave in a different way. The numbers from talent calculators are hard to go by since I'm not sure how to compare them. Obviously the hydra would hit more often each target so it would be more efficient on individual targets, especially bosses. But the meteor would be better for many targets (assuming one can aim). Either way, the orb is there for backup. Obviously this is very much to personal preferences, but I would still appreciate comments and thoughts on the speccs and any numbers you have on this. Thank you in advanced!! P.s. Also thoughts on mercs for the different speccs (remember, this is not a twinked sorc).
