please comment on my build

I used to play diablo 2 a long time ago, and only single player.
I now came back straight to multiplayer and wanted to start with a COLD/FIRE sorceress. I've decided on the following build after reading all sorts of guides, and tried selecting not only the best skills, but the skills who are more fun to play with.
Because I consider myself a noob, I would like comments on pros and cons of this build and improvement suggestions.
Any comment will be VERY appriciated.

here is what I planned:
FIRE:
1 Warmth
1 Inferno
1 Blaze
20 Fire Wall
1 Fire Mastery

COLD:
1 Ice Bolt
20 Ice Blast
1 Glacial Spike
20 Blizzard
20 Cold Mastery

LIGHTNING:
1 Static Field
1 Telekinesis
1 Teleport

That's about it (for 89 skill points).
The rest will probably go to Fire Mastery.

Perhaps it's only a reminder for you, but with firewall a good merc is needed especially if you're going to solo. But since you'r mentioned multiplayer, then others can be your tank in that case. At least you won't feel totally impotent :eek:, to help out, when confronting CI with some fire damage as well.

On the other hand if your resources are limited a single tree Blizzard sorc, with just the utility skill of teleport and warmth may be the way to go. Level fast in 8p multiplay, kick some butt without the best gear. Later run Meph with her and your set to explore different builds on multiplayer with the items you find.

Just some thoughts.

I have an 86 orb/fw sorc on West, and all that she seems to be viable for is nm meph.

I can't imagine what your 20 FW/1 FM sorc is gonna be limited to...

I beg you to reconsider a different secondary skill; Firewall is very underpowered thanks to the 1.10 patch (they wanted to get rid of the Nova and FW sorc's that used to plague the Moo Moo Farms of .09)

Erm, the MooMoo Farm is not plagued anymore by any character. The rewards are just too small. And have you tried Hell MooMoo Farm lately in 1.10?

so, is the only good fire secondery skill Meteor?
I try to avoid Meteor since it's seems too popular, and I'm also worried about how hard it'll be to hit with it.

Err...I don't think Hell Meph is too hard using Static & Orb. 950 life, max res, +6 skills, 1 red pot, 1 blue pot. Takes me about 6 statics and 10 orbs (no merc).

I remind thee that FW is only a backup for CI, so I don't expect it to be gr8. My main attack will be Blizzard. Should I put the rest of the points in FM instead of Ice Bolt, to make FW not useless?
