starting fresh

i have no gear and just created a level 1 sorc to build up and start MFing. im trying to decide on which build is the best for a fresh account. im guessing the ones im deciding between are meteorb and a blizz build. any suggestions?

Re: starting fresh

Orbitaller for a pure fresh build, otherwise those first 23 levels are going to go real slow. Plus Orbitaller or Meteorb gives you the freedom to run any area in Hell eventually, whereas Blizz will always be bound to the same few zones.

Blizzard would be the best. Run mephisto / ancient tunnels.

^ Do both :)

Play blizz until u get bored of mephi / AT then go meteorb / orbitaller and do where ever and you still have 2 respecs left if u decide on something else.

Personally i went meteorb, because i can :).

Re: starting fresh

thanks for the replies. my first build im trying right now is an orbitaller build; since i have 3 respecs i jumped on a build quicker than i usually do. though now i do feel like i should've gone with blizzard, i dont like wasting a respec so easily; so ill stay with what i got.

like i said, this a fresh account. at what point should i start MFing, and where should i MF when i do?

last but not least, i was under the impression that a lightning sorc is the best sorc there is if you have the optimal gear? is this correct?

Re: starting fresh

Lightning sorc has the potential to do the most damage while being able to break nearly every immune, unlike pure Fire or Cold. Optimal gear, though, means at a very minimum Infinity, which is prohibitively expensive

Re: starting fresh

k thanks, and it looks like right now i can choose between meteorb or orbitaller. im going to be doing primarily MFing, what do you think i should choose?

Re: starting fresh

I'm also starting fresh and went with Blizzard. Agreed that the respecs are key to what build to choose. I am now at normal baal and about to go to nightmare, but I did enjoy that I had a pretty good Ice Blast before I could get to Blizz and don't need to regret 'wasting' points in warmth energy or strength as I actually needed some melee equipment and spells to use when helping quest untwinked in public games to progress this far.

Now I am nearing the first choice though, I am lvl 42, have a 20 point blizz with 1 cold mastery, 10 Ice Blast and 8 warmth. Lets see how far I can make it into nightmare before I need to respec to a 20 point lvl 30 spell with a 20 point mastery.

Boy did the respec make the first acts bearable without twink gear though.
