Hey, all. I played D2 off an on several years ago, but never to any great extent. I really enjoyed it, though, and decided to start up again. I was thinking of making a Sorceress and had a build in mind I wanted to try, but I suspect it won't work. I want to try combining Blizzard with chain lightning. These were my two favourite Sorc skills, and I think they'd look great together, but I can't see them synergizing (so to speak) in the same build. Frozen Orb is a great secondary because of its slow and low point investment to function. I don't think I can get away with using Blizzard without pumping its synergies, but the same is true of chain lightning. I'd need to use something like
10-20 Blizzard Synergy
20 Chain Lightning
10-20 CL Synergy
10-20 Lightning Mastery
That just seems to spread out, leaving me with two skills that have no damage. But am I missing something that could make it work?
Thanks for any help
Edit: A little searching around tells me that Blizzard/Nova is a thing, so that's something to consider.
