I didn't get any responses soon enough before I went ahead and did what I was planning. I went through last night and killed all the bosses and did all the side quests in a solo game. If you ask me the build as I made it works great. She mows down the non cold immunes. While her meteor is a bit low on damage I am boosting it as I see fit. Right now if I get cold immunes I let the merc tank them while I meteor around his ass. It seems to be effective. As I said I went through and did all quests and bosses. Only once did I die and it was on Frozenstein. He mana burned me and clubbed my face in.
Failed build? I am not so sure. As for the way you put it. My main attack would be fireball I am guessing or meteor. Either way there are a hell of a load more fire immunes in hell than there are cold. I'd rather have a low fire attack and a damn good cold one in hell.
Thank you for your response. I think I may try that out soon on a different sorc.
I am happy with what I have made thus far. She is level 78 in hell, has killed chaos and baal and I even did nihlathak. If I find the time later I'll edit this post and tell you the hard points I have into all my skills. Next on the list of things to do now is make the other hybrids. Light/Cold, Fire/Light. All 3 elements just doesn't cut it. That I know.
Hard points no gear or charm bonuses:
16 ice bolt, 20 frozen orb, 2 cold mastery, 20 energy shield, 8 telekinesis, 6 meteor, 1 fire mastery.
From this point I will boost my meteor and ice bolt 1 for 1 when I get more levels. I currently do 686-718 frozen orb and 2313-2467 meteor. If I can get the meteor to do about 4k then I will focus on strengthening the energy shield a bit more.
Glad to hear your sorc rocks
FO destroys everything as i predicted, but your meteor damage is a bit low..
For WSK runs that's good, mostly because Lister and his buddies are FI. But boosting a bit more your Meteor along with Fireball would help a lot in other areas of the game too, except if your merc uses Infinity.
