The Sorceress Frozen Orb Build is the end game build that can get a player through nightmare and hell difficulty levels.
While playing in this build, you’ll be utilizing the Frozen Orb spell to deal damage on individual targets as well as enemy groups. Alongside that, you’ll also be using Chain Lightning to inflict damage on Cold Immune mobs. You’ll be conjuring massive ice torrents that deal immense damage in large AOEs.
The Sorceress Frozen Orb Build is intended for nightmare and hell difficulty levels that start around level 40. It’s recommended that you start off with the Fire Sorceress Beginner Build and then switch to Frozen Orb at a later stage. If you’re already doing that, and you want to switch to this build, you can do it by claiming the ‘Den of Evil’ reward from the NPC named Kara (Rogue Encampment). You’ll get 3 re-specs and you’ll need to be on the same difficulty level to claim it.
Similar to most builds on the Diablo 2 Resurrected platform, the stat distribution for this build will focus on assigning the attribute points into Strength so that the equipment requirements can be met, for the diablo 2 sorceress frozen orb build. The remaining points will be added into Vitality for additional life points.
You’ll need to assign enough points in Strength to equip your equipment. It will entirely depend upon the gear that you’re using, as well as the additional Strength bonus you’re getting from it. Dexterity will require no points. The remaining points are going to be added in Vitality, and you don’t need to invest anything in Energy.
If you have a Hellfire Touch and an Annihilus; it will greatly reduce your attribute points investment in Strength, for D2R frozen orb sorc. Instead, you can utilize these two charms to obtain +10 to 20 points in every attribute and +10 to 20 points in Elemental Resistances. If you have both in your inventory, it’ll save about 20 to 40 stat points, which can then be used for Vitality to increase your health pool. The passive resistances that the charms offer will allow you to depend less on +All Resistance gear, for D2R frozen orb sorc.
However, if you don’t have an Annihilus or a Hellfire Touch already, you need to stop what you’re doing and focus on obtaining them. The perfectly rolled ones are quite costly, but you can always opt for the bad ones at an affordable price, and then upgrade it when you have enough D2R Gold.
