Rich but Lost Orb Sorcy

I am a very rich man. My father is quitting diablo and he is giving me all of his stuff. He currently had just bouth 45 zod runes, so I am severly stacked. I can pretty much buy anything I want for two characters I think. But like I said, I'm lost.

I need to know the following about and Orb sorcy:

How many pts into ice bolt as a synergy?
What cold armor to use out of the 3?
Best possible PVM gear for Orb sorcy?
2nd element? Lightning or Fire, and what skill and syngergies for it?

Thank you very much for the time you guys spent.

Oh ya, does anybody know how much Orb damage I will be doing with whatever my synergy is for it?

Look around, read some guides.

For example, there's a big fat :MeteorOrb sorc guide stickied at the top of the forum.
Also, there should be a big nice CL/ORB guide also.

There is an FAQ also, i think. Read that.

Translation:

Glad to see that you have gotten those items and that you can buy everything :) I hope your new sorceress will turn out well and can defeat anything that comes in her way.

Best regards, Mith

Oh for some help, for PvM 20 orb & lvl 32 cold mastery after equipment is all you need. Forget about the ice bolt synergy, that's only useful for PvP. Grab a second attack such as meteor or chain lightning, read the guides stickied on top ;)

Lol...ya usually you just want to ask about a orb sorcy instead of listing all your zods so that every nub starts jumping at them lol.
Anyways, I used a orb pvp sorceress in both ladder and non-ladder, try this build for pvp. Since your rich, just buy it.
20 Ice Bolt
20 CM
20 Orb
20 Telekenisis
1 E-Shield
Rest into warmth
This makes a semi tankable sorceress, that can take maybe 2 hits from hammerdins. But since I realize its kind of hard to hit with blizzard, this is probably a good build for you.

first of all, the 1337 thing seemed random. the original poster just worded his statement wrong.

it should have been "i can get any item, the problem is that..." instead of quoting a number. ppl don't like rich snobs. that whole intro has "rich snob" written all over it. and i bet this has "poor hippy" written all over it... oh well.

as far as builds is concerned, look at the guides, as far as dmg is concerned:
http://66.98.154.13/Skills.html

its a user friendly calculator, i prefer the other version, but it takes more time to learn how to use.

I don't know why, but when a new poster comes in and the first thing out of his mouth is that he has 45 zods, it just really burns my gravy. I know I am a grumpy bastard.

Rygun: There is a search feature in these forums. Orb sorcs are the most common subject, and there have been hundreds of posts about them. I am sure you can find the answers you need there. Also, and this is just a polite comment, the attitude towards ebay and bought / duped runes is pretty hostile here, and I don't think I am alone in being rubbed the wrong way by your statement of wealth.

And I wouldn't waste any points in the orb synergy. Instead pick up a whole new skill tree. FO/CL and FO/Meteor/Fireball both work great.

ya know what rubs me the wrong way? ppl who use old cliches like 'burns my gravy' and 'rubs me the wrong way'.

the poster made 2 mistakes. which sounds about right to me. rich ppl don't have to be smart, so they usually aren't. you dont' have to jump down his throat and open hostilities.

the orb synergy is good for pure orb sorcs. a pure orb sorc has different advantages than other sorcs. some other ppl have done some wierd things with pure orbers.

I'm not jumping down anyone's throat, and didn't mean to open hostilities. Sorry to all, so don't burn my gravy any more, mathil. I still think the original post was tactless, and was a little sarcastic.

Also, a pure orb sorc is great, but somewhat limited, I think, in application. PvP orbers are a little underpowered compared to lit sorcs and fireballers. For MF, there are much better options, depending on the place you want to MF. If killing things is your goal, then a single-element sorc will be all but useless in hell mode. Just my opinions.

Looks like this thread is going downhill...
Time to add my gas to the fire:

If you look at the forums carefully, you'll notice that he had 45 zods yesterday. Somehow, 31 of them have disappeared in a span of one day, and he still has not gained any equipment...

http://forums.rpgforums.net/showthread.php?t=147686
This thread just keeps getting better and better.

If you ask me, this guy's dad should spend his money on child support, back taxes and his detox bills, not on Zod runes on Ebay. Booyah!

45 Zods? What the...

Sort of negates the whole "work hard for hours in the trade channel searching for the right item, at the right price.." I kind of enjoy that, being NOT super rich. Maybe I should buy 340598309458 Jah/ber/ohm/vex...hmmmmmm <scratches chin>

There is some skill planner on d2items.com..a guy in my clan found it..
it's really nice, you can plan out your character's dmg and such on it...

Here, I saved you the trouble:

Base Orb dmg w/ Synergy
20 Orb
20 Icebolt
-NO +skill
-NO Facets or "%to cold dmg"

Orb dmg: 366-387
Ice bolt dmg (just for fun) : 152-198
I can go way up with a ton of +skill..there ya go.
