    Meteorb or CL/ORB???

    Whats better for mfing and doing hell rushes (PvM). I was going to make a CL/ORB but I hear meteorb works well....please tell me what one i should take and the set up for skills. I have all the perfect gear and this is what im gonna wear:

    Shako(Ptopaz)
    SS (Um)
    Tal armor(P Topaz)
    Maras Ammy
    Raven Frost Rings/Nagels
    Acradins Mesh
    Travs
    Occy(Um)
    Frosties/Magefist

    PLease tell me I wanna do all sorts of mf runs...as well as rush hell continuously for my precious high level runes :buddies: :yep:

    My personal preference would be Meteorb for MF and CL/Orb for rushing. CL/Orb lacks the concentrated firepower of Meteor which kills bosses quickly, but it has the advantage over Meteor for clearing large groups quickly which makes it ideal for rushing. I guess it's all up to you in the end.

    Lightning with an item that reduces enemy LR (crescent moon, griffon eye or even LR charges wand), FCR, and hefty +skills will tear up anything.

    The same can be said about Meteor and Fireball.

    They play very differently, I prefer CL/orb because I don't like waiting for the meteor to fall. I like to port around annihilating a room from all angles with chains. You have a very nice setup there, so either will work. CL/Orb also does very well in the Pits and I have no problems with Meph (my gear is worse than yours, but I have a LR wand just for Meph).

    CL/Orb is definitely the best sorc build for pits. Pure CL (what I am) has some problems with those damn light immune archers. As far as killing bosses goes, there is only fire facets and 3 item tal set orb for reducing enemy fire resists. That is the major problem with the Metoer build.

    PS. Crescent moon rocks for a light sorc.. its insane :p. get your skills and fcr and resists somewhere else :p

    I'm not too sure about Boss killing with a Chainorb, since I haven't done as much rushing with her as I have with my Meteorb, but I do know that my Chainorb is excellent for clearing areas, and Pitruns are a breeze with her. I'm currently at work on my Blizzie meph runner, but after her I plan on finishing my Chainorb and gearing her up for rushes and mfing. I think a couple of facets and an eschuta's will definitely help speed things along for her.
