    Which phoenix synergy to pump?

    I just started playing 1.10 a few weeks ago (haven't played D2 since 1.9 and my old account is gone, so I am pretty poor). I made a TS/Dtail assassin and I wanna use phoenix as a back up. I can't decide on lightning or ice. Lightning seems to be a bit stronger, but cold seems a bit easier as it can be annoying to have to make sure I get 2 charges for lightning; much to get 3 charges since my pc kinda slow and in multiplayer games (like baal runs) i usually skip a bunch of framerate and it makes counting phoenix chareges almost impossible. Also, I couldn't find anywhere that tells the cold length on the ice charge. Does it last a decent ammount of time in Hell?

    My gear (not too great :rant: )
    Bartucs (what should I socket in this by the way)
    Rhymn Grim shield (best shield I have at moment)
    Ancient Armor: 100 life (i need better armor bad)
    Mirrored Boots: 40 fire resist, 30 run/walk
    ravenfrost
    manald heal ring
    +2 assassin ammy
    circlet w/ +2 assassin, 40 life

    currently using fade since I need resists bad, but i'll normally use BoS.

    lightning.

    even the lightning itself is bugged (or on purpose) to give you 3 spells at once on full charge with it.

    Yes I agree I would go with lightning as well, I would also experiment with both CoT and the second charge of PS. CoT is easier to deal with then trying to time the second charge of PS, as u said that would be a problem. Plus u get a really nice damage attack to ur initial point of attack w/ CoT. Personnally I prefer CoT but thats me.....

    CoT is not bugged. It's supposd to release all that glitter...However, there's a 2 frame (was it 2? :scratch:) cap on dmging monster which means the monster you hit wont be dmged bu both the nova and the charged bolts.

    I am on West NL. I been trying to make a good MF char, but hell MF runs are pretty tough for all the builds I have tried with such a gear limitation I have.
