Orb is better for pits/AT, while blizzard is better for bosses.

I would suggest a Meteorber, which allows you to do both types of MF.

Or make a orb/fireball. I am using one of these killing pindleskin right now. (I got 2 grandfathers within 2 hours today)
fireball hits immediately, meteor takes....a while. Not good when faced against rushing coldimmunes such as dark stalkers in the pit.

... or you could do Fireball/Orb. Or even Meteor/Orb/Fireball. Sorry for being a smarty-pants, but my point is, they're they're the same build. :grin:


However, this topic has come up before - not too long ago. I'm to lazy to find it, but here's a summary:

A pure blizzsorc is one of the very best mf sorcs, but they're more limited in the places they can run quickly. If you're looking for efficiency, and not variety, then blizzsorcs are a great choice. Frozen Orb can be very, very solid, but overall, even at its best, it's not as strong as a good Blizzard.

However, you can get very decent Frozen Orb damage for relatively cheap investment, allowing you to build up a second skill-tree (fire is more popular than lightning, but both can work well). And with two damage trees, you have a lot more flexibility on where you can do your MF runs.

What about an Orber, Inferno, I never see anyone do Inferno, and its got good dmg, and if you maxed it you could start to max warmth, which helps you as well ??

Re: Orb or Blizz

Inferno is bugged. I believe it does 1/3rd the listed damage. It also has a slower casting breakpoints (like lightning and chain lightning) - not that that's a huge deal though.

But even if you spend max points to synergize Inferno, you'd still get better results spending those points in Fireball and its synergies instead. If you don't want to use Fireball, have a look at Firewall... very solid skill.
