    Orb Choice: Death Fathom or +2 sorc/+3 blizzard orb

    Assuming I have this set up for a blizzard sorc with max blizzard and all it's synergies.

    shako with 5/5 cold facet
    tal amulet
    Perfect Blizzard Ormus with 5/5 cold facet
    arachnid
    lidless with 5/5 cold facet
    2 x sojs
    10x cold charms
    anny charm

    Total of +22 skills +30% cold dmg without an orb.

    I was wondering which orb would be better in terms of bliz dmg based on the gear above?

    +2 sorc +3 blizzard fcr orb with 5/5 facet
    or Death's Fathom +3 sorc/ 25+% cold dmg with 5/5 facet.

    Can anyone help with this ?

    Thank you

    And Death Fathom is definitely the best orb after running through the spread sheet
