    just go pure blizzard, forget any other tree. I fyou want to make a duel fire/cold then do a metero/Orb build.

    As for Blizzard build.
    Max Blizzard -> Ice Blast -> G.spike -> COld mastery -> Ice bolt.

    I'd only put 10 to cold mastery and then max all the bliazzard synergies. Then finnish off CM last.

    1 to warmth, static, teleport etc...

    not for general PvM in solo play, but it's great for act boss MF and in parties.

    I have a level 82 nm act2 defense(holy freeze) merc that will slow down and freeze Cold immunes. He tanks anything CI and wiht a reapers toll on him, he's leeching back more then he gets hit. So for meph/pindle or just general questing it's been great. You will need nice gear on your merc for him to tank cows and large groups of CIs, but it's working grerat for me.

    I get to and kill meph in about 30 sec to a minute, and pindle goes down in 10 seconds. And I don't get hit since my merc tanks for me, and his holy freeze aurora slows down eveyrthign else.

    Oh yeah, throw one point into frozen armour, my defense goes from 1100 to 2200 and FREEZES anything that hits me.

    IF you want a pure "just to play" sorc, then a meteorb is about hte best you can do.

    Does it freeze cold immunes too? Also, is the freeze length affected by CM too? If not, I found chilling armor is enough for me to run away (assuming I'm mana burned). Chilling armor definitely benefits from CM (much longer chilled time)

    yup, works on all monsters around me, cold immunes included. I love it! If I can get a doom word pole for my merc, I'll get a hell act 2 O or D merc and let the weapon do the level 12 holy freeze.
