Starting mf sorc.

IM starting mf sorc, I have absolutly nothing and Im starting from scratch. I was wondering what I should be. IM already cold, so should I be blizz or orb for mfing? I also want a second element, should I get fire or electric? And which skills? Any help will be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Go with meteor/orb.

Go to this link to get your guide.

Can kill moderatly quickly and handle pretty much any situation.

You will have Static for uber lightnin damage, nothin beats droppin half their life off in a few seconds!

With Orb you will do decent damage and slow them all down.

Then of course you have Meteor for godly damage and Fire Ball for clean up.

If you come across the few multi-immune creatures, simple let your merc kill'em. It will be extremely rare to find one that is immune to all your elements and if you do...just Tele away and forget'em.

I have crap gear...am only level 24 and I have found excellent LLD gear, almost too much to carry! (that is the gear I am looking for the most).

I am pretty much just gonna do NM Andy runs, but this build will easily handle any Diff and ANY boss.

it's impossible to go cold/lightning because you won't have enough points to spend. Always go for cold/fire for a two element sorc.

Lies.

My Blizzard/Charged Boltress does fine. And I also expect my Blizzard/Chain Lightning to be a beast.

orb/chain lightning is a favorite build as well.

that blizzard/charged bolt sounds interesting. =O

I've tried both and I think the standard meteorb is probably best. If I were you, I'd be tempted to go with a single element sorc and just use her for MFing up to NM Baal. You can get a lot of good starter stuff doing NM Baal and that's about when flawless gems start dropping on a regular basis too (the majority of the most useful gear in the game can be had for PGems nowadays). Once you get better gear you can start hitting certain bosses in Hell that aren't surrounded by hordes of monsters immune to your element. I personally found mixing up two elements made them a bit weak for my taste.
