    Ice Bolt vs. Cold Mastery for Blizzard Build [ Mephy Runner ]

    Hey:

    After maxing Ice Blast, Glacial Spike, and Blizzard; I'm afraid I won't have enough skill points to max both Ice Bolt and Cold Mastery. Cold Mastery seems logical since I'll be using this character for Mephy primarily, but considering I have +9 to cold skills and they don't affect synergies but DO affect Cold Mastery I'm wondering what a good balance would be. Perhaps add a 1:1 ratio per level?

    CM all the way

    up to -175% CM is useful against mephie. Synergizes (icebolt) works on the base damage of Blizzard, while CM works on the final damage.

    Currently it's at about 3.1k - TBH Glacial Spike didn't seem to add much damage. Around 50 per level.

    prozzeran - if that's the case, should I completely forget abotu ice bolt?

    don't forget about icebolt. get cm up to 175% first. then do icebolt. this may not be an issue if you can't get cm up that high before you stop lvling, but in case.

    lvl 32 cm should be -175% res.
