    Secondary skill with FO

    Hey
    I have maxed FO,Ice Bolt, and Cold Mastery.
    I'm level 79 now, and I'm looking for something to put the rest of my skills into (i have like 20 saved up).
    I was thinking of either CL,L,or CB.
    Which would be the best?

    you would be better off going one of two ways:

    1) an attack skill with no synergies (fw, hydra)

    or 2) go defensive with the rest of your skill points. drop 15-20 into telekinesis, pump up eshield.

    20 skill points is not enuf to get CL, L or CB to be effective. most skills won't be able to do anything unless you drop 30 skill points into them.

    Hey! I have the exact same skills. But can you please tell me why only 1 in ES with so many in tele?

    And is this build good at mfing pits or rune running?

    Hello

    I would recomend a secondary attack spell...
    And as mathil said one with no synergies would be best...
    I use FW with FM on my sorc and that works just fine, I guess that Hydra/FM or TS/LM would work aswell and they dont require their target to be still.

    hmm
    im just trying to think which would deal the most damage, and FW/FM sounds pretty good, mephy would be so easy with it -- is that more damage then say maxed lightning and a few points in LM?

    Lightning is one of those skills that require heavy investment in synergies to be viable in hell. Lightning and LM alone just won't cut it. FW/FM on the other hand don't need any synergies so I would go the fire route.

    Maxed orb, sinergy and mastery will kill meph much faster than FW/FM. I had a sorc exactly like yours and i went the defensive route: 20 in telekinesis and the rest (currently 4 i think at lvl 83) in energy shield. She does mephy really fast but doesnt cut it for general gameplay

    As said before, unless you invest heavily in the synergies/mastery of the lightning you simply wont be effective enough.

    To maximize a cold/light build, you have to distribute the points pretty evenly. On top of that, you'll be pretty fragile as far as taking damage goes.

    I have built fo/fw sorcs and she was surprisingly effective. I'm currently working on a clitorberess and I can already tell she won't be able to cut it in hell.

    ok
    so how should my points go..max FW and one or so into FM? or split them a little more evenly, or put one into each synergy

    for firewall, max it and dump the remainder into mastery. i dont' believe firewall has synergies. if it does, its not worth mentioning or putting points in.

    Hydra has fire bolt and fire ball as synergies.

    they are 3% synergies. i consider orb to have no synergies in this respect as well. both spells do have synergies, but they are bad and you would only use them if you are doing a variant.
