Is the Blizzard Sorc Meph run really all that?

I've seen a lot of recommendations for this MF combo. I've got Hell Cows, the pits, and Pindle covered, but that's mostly socketable searching. I wasn't too happy with my meteorb in most places in Hell.

I've certainly got the sorc MF gear for this run but how much FCR would you guys recommend for teleport.

60%ish (30 on my occy and 30 on my spirit shield) and I haven't died yet. Not teleporting to meph, anyway.

And it's not bad for killing meph. =P

the only thing faster than a blizz sork for mass killing is a decked out fire sork, in the places that uve mentioned. a fully faceted fire sork kills cows in a quickie, even in 8p games.

i highly recommend 110 fcr, just because i like to tele to baal solo. my gear is decent but unspectacular, and so far no deaths yet (hc sorky):

lvl 89

+2 sork/9 fcr/28 str/18 res all ammy
upped um'ed perf viper
2x soj

ali baba/rhyme on switch

2 cold skillers (all i can afford)
serpents of vita gc
rest are small vitas

990 life
900 mana

for just plain meffing 63 fcr is fine - you can usually tele away before the monsters can react with that much. i like 110 because it allows you to tele faster than burning soul's lightning attack (and other odd circumstances)

i'm doing blizz with meteor as a backup. of course this means the synnergy isn't as strong as it could be, but at least i have a backup if cold immunes pop up. i'm 62 and both skills are between 1.5k and 2k damage. i am lacking a good sort of defense. my next couple skill points will probably be frozen armor and eshield. not getting those sooner didn't prove to be a disadvantage though, of course i've only been doing baal with others thus far.

im using it now only problem for me is that its my first week back and well im not 100% complete lol so i kill him im about 10 secs or so just so the old school trick where u lure him to the edge of the left hand side on the steps onto the blood or w/e that is then teleport across unleash the blizzard fury

Wouldn't a fire sorc be more ideal for handling those vamps then? They can be a pain. Especially if you're going for MF over Dwarf Stars.

lets jusy say making a fire sork with comparable damage to blizz gets pretty expensive. comparison of my 2 sorks:

shako, ss, 15% meteor ormus, arach, +3 fire ammy, magefist, treks, bk/soj, wiz, 6 fire skillers

shako, ss, viper, tgods, +2 sork/fcr ammy, 2 sojs, magefist, travs, wiz, 2 cold skillers

and cold is still faster than fire.

you dont have to kill the bloodlords if you dont have to

and blizz is more versatile (for mfing other areas)

just an fyi... you need 105 fcr to hit 8 frames, not 110. Then you need 200 for 7 frames (not worth it imo).

I'd aim for 105 fcr for 8 frames... at the VERY least get 63% fcr for 9 frames.
