I am playing a Fireball/Frozen Orb Sorceress in normal. I have noticed that frozen orb, with only a few points, is way more powerful than the fireball that I have been investing in all game. Is it even worth it to invest more points in fireball? Or should I just keep putting points in Frozen orb?
Fireball just seems too weak compared to frozen orb. In nightmare that would be even worse. Mana regeneration is no longer a problem. I can more or less keep casting frozen orb. I have already respeced on normal, if I respec for nightmare, what would you suggest, given that I want to keep frozen orb.
U know u will encounter monsters that will be Frost Immune in Hell btw? Think u will be able to kill 75% of all mobs with Frost only, If u also grab fire as Archone suggest u will only encounter some combined Fire+cold immunes that your merc should kill.
I typically make orb/firewall sorcs for questing because firewall dmg ramps up much faster. Once you are very high level, fireball does good dmg.If you are actually going to use fireball, meteor, for hydra for questing, its probably more effective to skimp on orb+cold mastery and boost your fire dmg spell first. I think i calculated out that a good spot would be stop pumping orb at 13 points, and just 1 point cm.
