    PvP Blizz Sorc Info

    Ok ive made a pvp blizz sorc...what concerns me is should i get max block or go pure vitality? Then what shield should i use? Here is what i got so far as items/stats/skills.

    Skills: (no brainers)

    20 blizzard
    20 ice bolt
    20 ice blast
    20 glacial spike
    10+ cold mastery
    1 teleport
    1 telekenesis
    1 Warmth

    Items:

    Helm: Nightwing
    Armor: Blizzard Ormus Robes
    Ammy: Mara's
    Weap: Oculus
    Shield: i dont know here. as of right now im trying for stormshield but that soaks up a whole lot of points. There's also lidless and Sanctuary shield (KoKoMal)
    Belt: Snowclash
    Rings: Sojs
    Gloves: Frostburns or Magefists
    Boots: Sandstorm Trek ( i think thats what they are called)

    Stats:

    Str: enough for equipment (134 or so for ss with items on, or like 70 for lidless)
    Dext: enough for equipment or max block (where im confused) (for max block with ss would be around 255 at lvl 99)
    Vit: Rest here (wont have much here with blocking)
    En: none

    Please help me. Comment on what gear you would use instead also. I could really use help.

    max cold mastery, smart ppl will stack resists, but with maxed, you'll force them to stack a lot of it unless they have good resist gear.

    max cold mastery before going after ice bolt, more into warmth, unless you have lots of +skills items.

    Survival Gear(so you can take a few hits)
    Helm: Shako
    Armor: Vipermagi for Res,fcr
    Ammy: Mara's
    Weap: Oculus
    Shield: Lidless more pts into vit or SS with max block
    Belt: Arachnind Mesh,fcr
    Rings: Sojs
    Gloves: Frostburns
    Boots: Silkweaves

    Pure Damage
    Helm: Nightwing
    Armor: Blizzard Ormus Robes
    Ammy: Mara's
    Weap: Death's Fathom
    Shield: Lidless
    Belt: Snowclash
    Rings: Sojs
    Gloves: Frostburns
    Boots: Silkweaves
    However for with pure damage setup, probably one hit and your dead and you dont reach the 67 fcr bp which is crit for pvp

    Also if your planning to use nightwing the str is 96 so even if you use lidless youll have to put str up to that, and str req for Snowclash is **

    my sorc is already lvl 72 and she has so far:

    Base Stats:

    Str: 110
    Dext: 165
    Vit: 125
    En: 35

    Skills:

    1 teleport
    1 telekenesis
    20 ice bolt
    20 ice blast
    9 glacial spike
    20 blizzard
    5 cold mastery

    with most of the skill quests to go

    what should be the next thing i go for? max off cold mastery? or finish up synergy to blizzard? I also need help on stat distribution...should i just remake (it will suck if i have to)

    pvp blizz sorcs shouldnt max block, much controversy over this.. but in my strong opinion giving up all those points in the much needed vit to counter necs/foh/wind druids is dumb... you shouldnt be hit by melee chars :(.. also use a 5/5 lidless.

    I seriousely doubt that blizzard sor is that good on pk tho. With pal or nec with egnima blizzard cant even touch them. And there attack will own you in like 1 hit specially if his a foh noobzor din.

    Have you played against a pvp blizz sorc? It is very hard for a melee character to hit a sorc while trying to dodge blizzard... Say you have 10k blizz damage with cold mastery at lvl 30 + 3 5/5 cold facest that is -180 res even if the other char has 200 res your still doing about 8k damage. Even if the character has 40 cold absorb one hit will still hit because absorb works after the damage is done...

    new question related to an old topic. What if i wanted to make this sorc mf on meph? Then would max block be viable?

    :lol: uh, that's all you have to do with bliz sorcs too.


    I switch out only 4 items from my stash, and my pvp bone necro takes 62 total damage from a 15k bliz. 62 isn't much when i have >2.5k life... can you say the same about my spirit/spears/teeth?


    Bliz sorcs can be good pvpers vs. some, but against a well-prepared opponent using stacked res/absorb, they still go down easy. Where bliz sorcs really shine are in pub duels where most don't even know CM takes resists away :uhhuh: and in clans like CH where there are maxres/absorb limits, to prevent damage negation.
