    Pure PvP Orb Sorc

    Hey all, im new to the forums - and im reasonably new to the sorc area of D2, I am thinking of making a pure PvP Orb sorc, but i dont really know where to start, I have some ideas below, but some help on build / skills / stats would be great :) thanks. (I'm not poor, so I can take good item suggestions) These were my thoughts:

    --Items--

    Nightwings
    Deaths Fathom
    Arm. Fletch
    Sanctuary
    Ormus/CoH (not really sure)
    2 x SoJ
    Arachnids
    Soul Spurs
    Magefits / dont know.
    10 x Cold GC
    9 x Small 20 lifers (cant afford 20/5's really)
    1 x anni.

    --Stats--

    Str = items
    Dex = items (i dont think im going down the blocking route, mainly casterVcaster)
    Vit = everything
    Nrg = ?? do i put a small amount in, or none?

    --Skills--

    1 teleport
    1 Frozen armor
    1 energy shield
    20 frozen orb
    20 cold mastery
    Dont know what else to max

    Thats it - so yeah, any help is appreciated! :)

    First off welcome to the forums :D
    Second off skills should be like this
    20 Cold mastery
    20 Orb
    20 Ice bolt (synergy)
    20 Telekenisis
    20 Esheild (max last!)
    rest in warmth/prereqs
    And stats like this
    Str: enough to wear everything after gear equiped
    Dex: See str
    Vita: With esheild I'd go 1 or 2 in vita for every 3 in mana
    Mana: Everything you can dump in :D

    Items are always the biggest area of debate. Here goes what I'd consider good:
    Nightwings: 5/5 cold died
    Deaths Fathom (5/5 cold died)
    Ormus robe (if you can get +3 eshield/15 cold you are set)
    Lidless wall or Spirit if you can afford (you are NL so may be $$$)
    Belt: Arach (FCR/extra mana 1 skills)
    Gloves: Magefists (you need FCR)
    Boots: Sandstorm trecks (still want some Faster hit recovery)
    Ammy: again +2 sorc skills / 20%FCR any other nice mods is needed
    rings: SOJ's are fine
    Charms look fine

    edited b/c I realized that 20% fcr doesn't spawn on rings.

    Last note Fletch is a duped ammy, people around here don't like dupes/hacks/cheats/bugged items so if you mention stuff like that expect someone to pounce on you (I won't this time :D)

    Ok, thanks for your help, is the energy-shield route the best way to go would you say? not to pump vita and just have 1 in it?

    I havent played sorcs recently, so is e-shield the new wave of how to make them?

    Well I'd say having some in vita is good, I'd say after you get str and dex where they need to be; for every level go either 1 vita 4 energy, or 2 vita 3 energy, whatever you feel comfortable with.

    Esheild is the way to go for some sorcs, if you were playing a bliz sorc it's not as usefull... but orb and esheild can be maxed with all the synergies so it's a good deal.

    Website, I don't know if we can post, but go to the official battlenet website and click on the D2 box near the top :)

    Only problem with spirit is that you need 156 Str to wear it (lightest sheild with 4 sockets is a monarch).
