    Thunderstrom Orb viable in Hell

    Reading the Archmage guild I got to wondering if a Orb Thunderstrom build would be viable in Hell. Something like FO 20, CM: 8, Thunderstorm :20 LM:20.
    If 3 spells and 3 Masterys is viable would this be. I know it would not kill as fast as a CL Orb, but would it be viable?

    Even a lvl20 Thunderstorm does not discharge enough bolts to kill fast enough.
    You cant control when it is cast either. For that the damage is too low and it will take ages to kill any Cold immune monster.
    The dual-tree builds or tri-builds rely partially on spells that can be spammed, so the can do less damage fast.
    Thunderstorm has no synergy either and unlike Nova, which is on a similiar spot, you can fastcast it.
    In a pure Lightning build Thunderstorm is a good support spell.

    cast ts. wear blackhorn's face, and stab the CI to prevent regen. then, trap it so that it is still on the screen, but can't hit you. after 5 minutes, come back repeat.
