    What is the best sorc build to solo hell in SP, can't be pure light.
    I know it's a question on, but what is the opinion of you?

    I believe a Blizzard/Fireball hybrid would have the easiest time finishing Hell solo. Another popular choice is probably Meteor/Frozen Orb.

    It somewhat depends on the gear you have available.

    For untwinked Meteorb or Blizzballer.

    P.S. Check the stickies they are you friend.

    EDIT: And check this guide how to start untwinked character. It's for single pass but the same principles work for running, you'll get the gear just earlier. NPC sells on normal are capped, so the principles stay even if your level is higher than what single pass would be.

    The Orb-it-aller is also nice (check the sorc section). Frozen orb is not that great in big multiplayer games but probably the fastest way to kill things when you're playing solo. 20 points in fireball and firebolt and 1 point in fire mastery gives you a very respectable backup attack if you've got enough fcr.

    Blizzard and meteor have great damage, but they're harder to play with. IMO they're suited more to online play where you have buddies to keep your targets still for long enough.

    A good merc makes a dual build like this much easier: Let the cold immunes clump around your merc, spam away with fireball and they won't last long.

    Among the Fire skills, am I the only one who prefers Fire Wall and Blaze over Meteor and Fire Ball?

    (Must be because I was brought up in Classic v1.03...)

    I have more fun with my frozen orb + fireball sorc than I do with blizzard + fireball.

    Blizzard is a bit better for Meph and AT runs, obviously. Nevertheless, if I could only have one of the two I would keep my FO/FB.

    @Jiansonz: I love Firewall too. For only 30ish skill points, you get an amazing attack. I suspect most people aren't recommending it because their main skill is either Blizzard or Frozen Orb. Having two timered skills is a little annoying.

    I remember the old day when fire wall was the ONLY fire skill a sorc would use.

    The major problem with firewall is not that it is timed spell, I suspect most people won't use it anymore because:

    1. you cannot firewall target out of space, as firewall can only light on ground. You know what I mean when you have target out of reach and only way to get them is some sort of real ranged attack (eg. fireball, arrow, etc).

    2. fast moving targets are hard to aim, you need your target stay still in the fire (or move in the same direction of fire), which is not always possible.
