    Matriach Flammie, pure fire Sorc

    Amazingly enough, I *do* play classes other than shapeshifting Druids. This is one of them.

    I didn't create Flammie with any intention of beating the game, I just wanted a quick D2 fix and started a sorc, and kicked *** and just placed points to boost early game power, as I didn't intend on saving any. I decided to just go full fire, I wasn't going to take her to Hell anyway so FI's weren't a concern. The early game was fun, and a Leaf in a +2 fireball staff really racked up the damage quickly. Fireball was quickly becomming a favourite spell.

    But as I went on, she got more and more fun to play, and so mid-nightmare I decided I would beat the game with her, FI's be damned. If I had to let my merc kill every one, or just skip half an area, so be it. And with that, I decided to twink on some gear (Magefist, Vipermagi, Insight, etc) and go for it.

    And it was a blast (pun not intended). After swapping to dual spirits and hitting the 105% FCR break-point and with an Insight to back it up, there was no end to the fireballs I threw around. It was great fun blasting entire packs of monsters to death at once. (Not fun when they're dolls though x_x). With fast casting, I could not help but teleport everywhere like a madman. Safety be damned, I was teleporting into areas blindly and if I landed into the middle of a pack, I'd let loose a point-blank range fireball and waste the whole lot. I was playing much more aggresively too, I dealt with ranged packs and gloams in much the same way - teleport into their face and wipe the lot out with a fireball or three. I zipped through areas in a flash, leaving most things charred and burning in my wake.

    FI's weren't too much of a problem either, luckily most of the monsters I met were perfectly flammable enough. I used a +3 FO staff on switch to help out the merc, eventually spending the hard points sometime mid-Hell to avoid the hassle of swapping and allowing the dual spirit bonus to apply to CM too. My Merc handled most things, and spamming Glacial Spike meant he could fight them safely too.

    Blah blah blah. Players 1 whole way, took Ancients first try, Lister sucked as always, and Baal's drops resembled Normal Rakanishu's. The end.

    Re: Matriach Flammie, pure fire Sorc

    I'm going to take her to the Moo Moo Farm and have a nice barbeque first off, I always forget to do that with new Pat/Mats =p

    Other than that, I don't know. I had the idea of making her into an MFer, but that wouldn't work as I can't think of many places without FI's that it would be worth it to run. Perhaps she can be a dedicated Andariel killer? Heh.

    Re: Matriach Flammie, pure fire Sorc

    The Mausoleum has only LIs and has ~6 boss packs and easy monsters. It is area level 85, so the boss packs can drop everything. Great for a pure fire sorc. Not the best MF location -- can't match blizz/AT speed but it's a nice diversion.

    I think fire is the easiest among the three single tree sorc builds as she has access to both static and glacial spike, making it a lot easier for the moron to rack up kills.

    Re: Matriach Flammie, pure fire Sorc

    Well, there is this 'Beast' weapon you could always.. :hide:
    Anyway, congrats on the mat :thumbsup:

    My affinty to fire-sorcs is only beaten by that to the lightning javazons :cloud9: I will most likely remake yet another one in the near future, just because I miss having her around :azn: It is arguably the fastest build to complete the game, great power just waiting to be unleashed. No wonder you enjoyed her!

    Re: Matriach Flammie, pure fire Sorc

    A Beast would be my dream weapon. If I could get my paws on one of them, I'd go through each class with it, doing a Bear Septumvirate. If only...
