    My helpless sorceress

    Is this normal?
    I really love playing my PvM sorceress. In normal mode, she was fun to develop and she grew stronger and stronger. In nightmare, the game was actually easier than in normal, basically because her Frozen Orb is so devastating.
    Knowing that I would face quite a lot of cold-immune unique monsters in hell mode, I decided to develop a high level Meteor as her alternative attack - just to find out that there are quite some uniques that are immune to both cold and fire? Now what am I supposed to do? I have two high level attacks that would actually do tons of damage, yet they are completely useless against these bastards.
    Any advice?

    Do you use a Merc? If not, yes this is normal :p

    Aquiring a Merc that can tank for your and dispose of those perky double-immunes is imperative! Without it you will be lost.
    You can have CI monsters charging you and you will be stranded and dead since running away and casting Meteor/fireball will take ages ;)

    Act2 Mercs are usually those that are chosen the most. Either:

    Defiance Merc
    Holy Freeze Merc
    Might Merc

    All of these can be found in act2

    Bests choice of items for these, so they can survive:
    Helmet: Vampire Gaze, Steelskull, Rockstopper
    Weapon: Bonehew, Reaperstoll, Tombreaver
    Armor: Duriels Shell, Shaftstop...

    Important is Lifeleech, damage reduction, resist and HIGH damage weapon, so that the lifeleech will be efficient. Etheral version are good too, since Merc equipment does not need repairs.

    That's great news! Basically because I have these problems in Act I... Now I guess I'll struggle my way through Act I somehow.

    Thanks for the assistance, mate!

    Aehm..... How about hopping back to Nightmare and getting a Holyfreeze Merc or a Might Merc, since those 2 are only available on Nightmare?
    defiance is available in hell again.

    Those from nightmare are lvled up fast to your current lvl. No worries there.

    Combat/Normal Difficulty: Jab/Prayer
    Combat/Nightmare Difficulty: Jab/Thorns
    Combat/Hell Difficulty: Jab/Prayer
    Defense/Normal Difficulty: Jab/Defiance
    Defense/Nightmare Difficulty: Jab/Holy Freeze
    Defense/Hell Difficulty: Jab/Defiance
    Offense/Normal Difficulty: Jab/Blessed Aim
    Offense/Nightmare Difficulty: Jab/Might

    You should consider changing your name to "Encyclopedia"!
    Thanks again!
