Which build for surviving Hardcore levels 1-30? Folks, after years of softcore, I've decided to give Hardcore a try [gulp]. And am wondering what kind of sorc to make. I'll be playing in parties, untwinked, and, I assume, levelling up the long, slow hard way (i.e., no rushes). Since I'll be levelling up the long way, my main concern is: what build will allow me to pump points into low-level skills so I have something to use until I get the high-level skills? I guess one option would be a lightning sorc. Pump Charged Bolt at the beginning, maybe bring it up to 20 first, and use it for quite a while until I can get my Lightning/CL damage to catch up with it? Or a Fireball/Hydra build? Pump Fire Bolt until Fire Ball, and Fire Ball until FM and Hydra? Or some cold build? Pump Ice Bolt lots at beginning and use it until I get Blizzard or Orb? Which of these would have the easiest time of it making it through levels 1-30? I've never had to think about this before, because I've always just gotten rushed. This is all new to me... MageChick, congrats on being a Dad, by the way!
