    Best PvM Sorceress Guide?

    Hey, how's it going?

    My girlfriend and I would like to start playing Diablo 2 together when the ladder resets. We haven't seriously played the game in a very, very long time, so we'd like some help if possible.

    I'm basically looking for a magic-find Sorceress guide that doesn't use super high-end items, though I'd like to be somewhat decent outside of the magic find game as well. She'll be using a PvM Paladin and be my tank of sorts.

    Can someone recommend me a guide or two? Thank you very much,
    ViC

    Check the guide thread. Meteorb,Orb-it-aller, or Blizzballer will probably suit your purposes.

    Thanks for replying.

    I'm leaning towards Meteorb Guide (3rd ed) by sasja. Will that build work for what I want? Is it outdated now (it was written over six years ago).

    Thanks,
    ViC

    That guid was accurate a few months back when I used it to build my meteorber. 1.13 has since been released but not a huge amount changed.

    If you two want to play together, then why not chosing a pure build each of you? You could use a pure Blizzard and she a pure Lightning for example. If you want to stick with a dual element build I would vouch for sasja's guide on Meteorb. It's still valid, the only thing I would add on it, is the fact, now widely accepted that the Full Tal Rasha Set is the best equipment you should put on a Meteorber...

    I am thinking of making a meteorb myself.. but with respecs now I will probably use skills focused on damage for low lvls (some in warmth also) and then go from there.. normal is always the hardest..

    I had not thought about being a pure build until you guys mentioned it! Thanks for the suggestion.

    I know this is supposed to be a magic find Sorceress, but I would like to be strong enough to fight other monsters as well. Would the "Budget Meph Quest Blizz Sorc" guide juju linked to be good enough to do other parts of Hell difficulty as well?

    Also, the quest drop thing that helvete pointed out in the guide regarding not killing Mephisto so that I can get better drops is still relevant, right?

    Thanks,
    ViC

    yeah pure blizz can destroy anything not immune in hell with +0 all skills, very powerful, and becomes ridiculous with +skills

    Orb/CL/L is the route I'm taking. Will let you know how it goes.

    I've done CL/Orb before and it works but torch really helped.

    Your gf could get conviction and make an avenger. This would be good synergy for your team and speed up your levels and your mf. gl
