    Mat Shiva

    As Baal sat in the Worldstone Chamber overseeing his demonic siege on Harrogath a chill wind whipped up and stinging ice flew through the underground vault. The Freezing winds swirled into a vortex and an unearthly figure coalesced in the heart of a very blizzard.
    Baal reacted immediately and hurled wave upon wave against the mysterious warrior, who again and again threw them back in disarray until none were left standing to defend their Lord.
    As The Lord Of Destruction retreated into the very heart of Mount Arreat the figure melted away and a biting wind whipped its way along the corridor on Baal's heels. Trapped inside the heart of a mountain the face off was inevitable as Baal pivoted his many limbed torso and fired a wave of heat into the freezing winds.
    The unearthly warrior once again took form from the winds and hurled bolts of pure ice at Baal, who sent his tentacles snaking through the earth to rise and block the onslaught. The blizzard swirled in close and in the blinding snow Baal thought he could hear boots approaching so lashed out and caught someone around the waist. Before he could crush his foe a spear lanced out of the gloom and deep into Baal's abdomen.
    As Baal spun to face this new threat a jagged shard of ice slashed its way downwards through a pair of legs and Baal was slowed beyond hope of retaliating and gave himself up to the raging blizzard.
    As the snows cleared two figures were revealed, one wielding a bloodied spear and the other holding a dainty orb.

    Nice! Congratulations! I will make a Tal's sorc and was undecided on which skills to use. I don't want orb, because I nearly always played orb and I still have an Orb/CL sorc. I had a blizzard sorc in bnet, but I want a dual element sorc and Tal's set seems made for this. The good dual element builds use one skill that doesn't need too much synergies to be effective (orb for example) and pump the synergies of a second skill which needs more synergies for proper killing. Now I want blizzard, but it needs synergies... I think I will go for firewall, because it hasn't synergies and yet does good damage. I had the idea, but now I am sure, thanks! :D

    And say, is that a second blizzard sorc or had you just not posted a mat thread?

    and i would have thought youd get bored of druids before you complete that list. I love sorcs and necros, but i couldnt constantly do them.
