    I dont mean to be rude so no offense here but do you read before posting? Theres a sorc guide thread stickied at the top part of the forum, and it is filled with useful guides and tips on how to make your self a powerhouse. If you feel like being a cold sorc then I recommend going blizz so look into those guides.

    I took a look into some of them, but in all I looked no Version was listed or it was for 1.11 and I don't know if the differences in 1.10 is hard for sorc, so I was askin' this way :-D

    Virtually all the 1.10 guides are still valid for 1.11.

    Read the guides.

    Btw, I just couldn't write the way you do even if I tried really, really hard.

    :lol: ^^
    Yeah I am weird :evil:
    thx for the Info :!:

    edit:
    Str- 140.
    Dex- 150.
    Vit- 185.
    Nrg- 75.

    Thats the stats what the writer took, ok those are from his/her chars...
    but I read that more than 65nrg is not really necessary ?
    Then on the other Hand I read on yet another Guide that dex is stupid to raise for a sorc... what could you tell me to this ?
    And how should I raise the stats from start off?
    first in str. for some weaps, in nrg that mana don't runs out?

    Think. Then post.

    Dexterity's only worth putting points into if you're going for max block. If you don't want block, don't put dex in. With the exception of wizspike, as iirc that requires 75 dex or so.

    Enough base str to wear your gear, minus what bonuses your gear gives.

    Vita to stay alive.

    Energy if eshield. If you're a vita build, dont waste points here. Just use mana pots.

    thx thx...
    I now looked into all guides wich are posted, but I can't find one for a frost-sphere build, only for blizz :(

    If someone knows one....
    for extras i wanna have 1 telekinese 1 teleport and 1 shiver (I think, should be good enough) 1 warmth (if it is named like this ^^)

    the rest should rock out sphere.... any ideas ? =)

    Frost sphere?
    Frozen orb.. uh, right.

    Es/Orb is quite popular, for pvp. If pvm, you'll probably want a secondary skill of some sort. Firewall or Fireball maybe. I haven't tried either variants, so I can't help there.

    If es/orb, and lvling from scratch-
    Pts into icebolt - this will be the first skill you'll max - 1 pt into kinesis, teleport, static field, warmth, iceblast, glacial, blizzard, and then Frozen orb. If pvm - Aim for lvl 17 Cold mastery, after all the + skill points from your gear has been considered. So if you have +8 sorc skills, put 9 base points in. Everything else goes into energy shield, and then Telekinesis.

    Static? Never used it, even not in SP ^^
    If it's orb in US-Version, okies ^^
    Nah, I don't like pvp and would love if there was a way that I would have NEVER to pvp anytime. I am only in PVM..

    But if I go to fire, I am losing good points for Ice :-/

    edit: energy shield, so I was told by many many many players only to take 1 point if I am pvp'ing ^^
    But if I go on frostorb I can't max all of the frosties, :-/
    thats hard to take...

    You can build vitabased orb, its perfectly viable. You wont need eshield, and you wont lose damage off your cold tree if you stick the leftover points into a different tree.

    thats what I ment Xenon =)

    But how much should i put in wich skill to get the max dmg from the orb...
    Blizz I think should get only 1 point there's no synergy...
    I am thinking of only putting 10 - 15 Points into coldmastery, or should I max this out ?
    Enemies with less resi will die quicker...

    Its called frozen orb on europe too...

    If you do not wish to PvP at all, then I would suggest the meteorb build as this would allow you to put points into frozen orb (FO) and also give you very powerful fire skills which will allow you tackle all but a few monsters in hell (ie everything but cold and fire immunes which your merc can handle anyway).

    The reason i suggest this is that putting points into FO's synergy, ice bolt, is not that useful in PvM and if you do decide to use energy shield and its synergy telekinesis, you will still face problems with cold immunes. Furthermore you stated that you are just coming back to diablo and therefore I am going to take a wild guess and say that you probably don't have an infinity (runeword that gives conviction aura) lying around!

    It seems that you're worried about the damage you will do with a less than synergised FO, not to worry, FO kicks *** all the way through normal and nightmare and does decent damage in hell.

    If you want to go all out cold tree with masses of damage, the best build would be a fully synergised blizzard sorc. All of the builds i have mentioned have excellent guides in the library!

    Static Field is one of the most useful skills on the game IMO.

    My advice if you want a Orb sorc is to look at the Meteorb guide in the sticky thread.

    You definitely want a backup skill to help deal with cold immunes.

    FO is great in Norm/NM but ounce you hit hell its power is not so great, so again I say a fully synergized blizz sorc is your best bet.

    actually 110 points if you reach 99....with all the skill quests for each difficulty completed.
    You shouldnt have trouble maxing the stats/synergy for orb with that many points and should have plenty to build a back up skill for cold immunes.

    There's nothing confusing about it...

    Orb
    Cmastery
    Icebolt

    (1pt shiver or chilling armor)
    Are the only skills in the cold tree you'll need aside from prereqs IF you build a frostorb/frozenorb sorc.

    That's 60 points + 1 for an armor + skill prereqs (4-6 pts, depending on your cold armor)


    Stick the rest wherever.

    He is saying that if all you want to do is pvm, then you will need another element besides cold.

    The meteorb build is simple to make and effective to use. Plus it means that with the exception of monsters immune to cold AND ice [your merc can kill these few, or just run:)], you will be able to kill anything.

    If you make a pure orber you will not be able to kill ~30% of monsters in hell.
