    Remaining points in warmth or Ice Blast synergy.

    I'm going to use this sorceress to rush and help my girlfriend through the areas with fire immunes since she is a pure fire sorceress. Since her sorceress is pure MF her killing speed won't be as high nor will her survivability.

    Ideas?

    I would put to Blizzard instead of Glacial Spike. Both are synergies to Ice Blast, but Blizzard serves a different purpose, which is massive chilling and high damage. Glacial Spike is pretty similar to Ice Blast because its a projectile that freezes. When you deal with fire immunes, launching Ice Blasts and Spikes would be tedious and inefficient, whereas casting Blizzard inbetween a ton of Ice Blasts would do more damage and be more efficient.

    Other than that, everything looks good :)

    Go blizzard and use glacial spike as the main synergy. Blizzard increases the freezing length of glacial spike and GS increases the damage of blizzard.

    Look at this Blizz-firewall guide, butuse glacial spike as main synergy instead of ice blast.

    Basically
    Bliz 20
    GS 20
    Ice Blast 1+ (all remaining point, which may be max)
    Ice Bolt 1+ (more i you wind up maxing Ice Blast too)
    1+ CM (you want 17 after skills)
    20 Firewall
    1+ fire mastery (season to taste)
    Prereqs and one point wonders

    Here is what my level 95 single player blizz-firewall sorc looks like:
