    Inspired by @blsh here is another cold sorc in 1.07, this time using Blizzard instead of Frozen Orb. Went vita this time instead of max block for no real reason. Easy build, you just spam blizzard and static field and everything dies. Cold Mastery cuts through immunities so it walked through Hell. A few deaths from buggy LE monsters and blind teleporting into piles of bad things, otherwise easy game. I even got to use the act 3 cold merc in the Chaos Sanctuary. 1.07 is fun.

    Congrats on your Matriarch!! Which attack did you find more effective Blizzard or Frozen Orb? The randomness of Blizzard always annoys me for some reason.

    In 1.07 Frozen Orb has a bug where if the orb touches any monster, it immediately stops doing damage and all the other ice bolts are nullified for that attack. This means that you can't sweet spot monsters or aim through groups. Instead you have to aim between, next to, or even away from the monster you're trying to kill. This was incredibly frustrating, and one of the reasons that drove me to Blizzard. Were it not for this bug, I would have far preferred FO, but since Blizzard works as intended with no bugs, I find it far more useable even with its randomness. In either case, a high level Static Field did the bulk of the work, since there is no cap in 1.07 you can sliver any monster even act bosses in Hell. Also any source of cold damage will plow immunes due to Cold Mastery cutting through immunities. I bet you could stomp the game with Frost Nova and Static Field, actually that's not a bad idea.

    Thanks for posting; these threads are giving me great ideas if I ever grab those 1.07 discs!

    I love Blizzard, but could never really get the hang of FO, so I think I'd really like making a pure Cold sorc 1.07.

    I can only imagine how ridiculously OP Static Field is with no penalty in Hell and NM.

    Cool, grats!

    Orb really is frustrating, so I like the idea of just going blizzard, even though I hate blizzard.

    Frost nova could be fun, but if the monster was light immune I don't think that FN would do enough damage to kill them effectively.

    Frost Nova only does 56 - 58 points of damage at level 20 and it costs 28 mana.

    Nice and congrats! I'm vita build as well, and this looks very safe, haven't had any problems at all so far. Though I'm not in Hell yet, finishing NM Act III, lvl 43. I don't have good equipment, but my Blizzard is now at 20 with +skills and static around 15 I guess, covers the screen.

    With Blizzard though, what really kranks me up is you can't hit standing targets. Best way to kill mobs is to run them into Blizzard, but if a mob is just standing and shooting missiles or hiding in the corner, Blizzard doesn't hit them. So I have been thinking about throwing some skill points into a missile, most likely fireball. Other than that, I'm very happy with Blizzard!

    Also, sometimes the camera angle doesn't allow you to see some mobs hiding, static is very helpful to locate them!

    In 1.07 mercs generally suck, they can't leech life and they are overall just death ponies. However the barb merc is unique in two ways. First, you can hire a barb merc MUCH higher than your own level, like 20+ levels higher. Second, high level barb mercs regenerate all their health in about three seconds. So it's a teensy little bit easier to keep the semi-worthless glass merc alive when it regenerates so fast and is 20 levels higher than you. They still totally suck though and will likely get eaten by a grue.

    Ah I see. Well, at least it that's easier to keep that alive with teleport than an act2 merc.
