    No need to fix

    Meteorb is a great guide, but even the author stated that it's just a guide. The guide is focused on fire attacks with an orb backup.

    The guide suggested level 17 CM because that gives -100% cold resist. It was a strategic tradeoff due to the lack of skillpoints, since it reasoned that maybe 2/3 of the monsters do not have cold resist at all.

    I love frozen orb and I maxed CM on purpose, because I wanted cold to be my primary attack. I want to hit the -100% max cold resist ever single time including monsters that have some cold resistance. I want to be able to tackle DClone with its 95% cold resist and have my orb do 2x damage against him. I like cold better than fire especially due to the fact that its mastery cuts down resistances, while fire just adds more damage.

    I don't think you need to remake, unless you want to use meteor/fireball as your main attack.

    right now meteor's doin 2k dmg, at lvl 20, and some fireball and + skills, im lvl 73, so theres still room i guess..i estimate lvl 85 i can hit quickly so thats still 12 pts + a few skill quests

    For your reference...

    Ok here's my meteORB girl. She's currently 86:

    20 frozen orb
    20 CM
    1 frozen armor
    1 prereqs

    1 static field
    1 telekinesis (helps against cold immunes)
    1 teleport

    1 warmth
    20 fireball
    20 meteor
    3 FM

    +11 skills to fire
    +13 skills to cold
    +11 skills to lightning

    My orb does 461-482, before CM takes effect.
    My fireball (which I seem to use more than meteor) does 3339-3670.
    My meteor does 7982-8345.

    For pit running she does just fine. I dont PvP so I wouldn't know about that.

    Hope this helps.
