    Orb or Blizzard?

    Which would be better for mfing? A blizzard sorc an orb sorc?
    I know that blizzard does a lot more damage than orb, but has a long casting delay. Orb does less damage and has a higher chance of hitting someone, but with less casting delay. I still can’t decide what to be. So can I have all of your opinions?

    Re: Orb or Blizzard?

    In the single player forum, twice a year there is a tournament called the "Magic Finding Olympics". The objective is for each player to "find the rarest sets & uniques" within a given time period, against varied targets. Blizzsorcs are consistently at the top of the results. Orb sorcs aren't.

    You can make effective Orb MF'ers, but a well-designed, dedicated MF-blizzie is damn hard to beat.

    You don't make an orb sorc, orb is almost always combined with another skill life CL/FO or meteorb.

    Sorry to bump, a few days old! But I just want to advocate pure orb sorcs for mfing. If you go with orb you save a lot of points that you can put into TK/ES instead and you will be pretty much invincible. Meph, pindle and andy are really easy. Use whichever skill you prefer. I don't like using blizz at all, so I use orb. It's viable!

    Blizzard would be faster, just drop a blizzard over the boss and they are dead.

    Or go orb and put 20 points in teleport. Bosses are not as easy to kill, but teleing forever without mana pots is so much fun :)

    I go orb on classic and blizz on xpac. Blizz sorcs just love tearing Mephisto apart, combined with quest drops a blizz sorc is one of the best MFers out there, and there is no need for expensive runewords.
