Magic Find The Pit like a pro with the Fire Ball Nova Sorceress. With Nova for the Devilkins and Fire Immune Unique monsters, and Fire Ball for everything else, this hybrid Sorceress is unstoppable in this choice Max Level Area.
When it comes to Solo-farming, this build has little competition. High mobility, high Magic Find, strong Damage options, and smooth transitions make this build both exciting and effective. Even though she specializes in Elite Hunting in The Pit, this Sorceress can hold her own in almost any of the other Max Level Areas, including the challenging Worldstone Keep. With a few tweaks to the standard build, and strategic use of Static Field, the Fire Ball Nova Sorceress is even capable of beasting down monsters in Max Player Count games. Swapping between two different types of Elemental Damage, this build truly comes online once acquiring Infinity for the Mercenary. She's Electric...she's Fire...this is the Fire Ball Nova Sorceress!
This build guide assumes you have a Character at Level 75 before transitioning to it. Check out our Sorceress Leveling Guide and our General Leveling Strategies to reach Level 75.
