The Sorceress has been one of the most beloved characters to start your journey into the world of Diablo 2. Today we are talking about a specialized late game build called the Blizzard Fire Ball Sorceress, also referred to as the "Blizzball" Sorc. With a decent Faster Cast Rate Breakpoint and use of the Teleport Skill, this build can easily arrive at specific locations quickly for great target farming. FireBall itself has a great damage output great for quickly popping Players 1 Elite packs. Blizzard is used as a secondary Skill, but is great for quickly taking out Fire Immunes.
In this build we stack a lot of x% Better Chance of Getting Magic Items (MF) and focus on going quickly from pack to pack. This build specializes in Ancient Tunnels farming but because we are a Cold and Fire Damage hybrid this can open up many areas of farming.
Static Field and your Mercenary with Infinity Giant Thresher helps against resistant mobs.
