EndlessWinter - Cold Sorceress

Character Intro and Overview


One of my favourite char is a Cold Sorceress. Primary I am using Ice Nova, because I like the playing style with Teleport, Curse and Nova. Before I made this char I have seen the Halls of Daishi's FreezingSorc and BananaSlurpee's One. Both made a quite strong Cold Sorceress, Daishi a bit better cause of playing online + he doesnt use a marpeled 400% cold dmg weapon like banana. So I checked Daishi's Equipment and found several things where you can get more + skills. I dont like LOD items like Nightwing's or Monarch. They are good, but there are much better things on ES. So I dont wanted to get these things, but I have to say that they have a specific style. The second thing is, that I didnt use Icestorm Shard Unique Jewels, but they are definitly better than Allskillers at this charakter. So my "direct" damage would be much higher with Icestorm Jewels.

In my equipment I only use +1 to All Skill Jewels, because I like the high Lower Resist Curse, Fade, Battle Orders, Shout...
My Lower Resist(lvl 63) Curse is at the maximum -90%.

Stats and Attributes

Primary I use an Act2 Combat Merc with Conviction Aura, but I wanted to try also an Act3 Cold Sorcerer Merc with Protection from Cold Aura to see how much damage I can get.
First you can see my normal Stats and below that ones with the Act3 PfC Merc.


Base Attributes
430 Nearly all into Energy


I could not get my Cold Mastery to Lvl 100, but Synergies are more important is my opinion.
NOTE: I got a problem with my Diablo2 Installation. I only get 1/1/2 Skillpoints at the quests(den,rada,izeal). Means I miss about 12 Skillpoints.


Every Item is forged with +1 to All Skills. D-Stoning mostly + % Max Life, + Life, Faster Cast Rate or some resists. The weapon is d-stoned with +% Cold skill damage.
10 Odd Charms with +1 to Cold Skills and socketed with +1 to All Skill Jewel.
All Unique Charms (except yellow jellow) are forged and socketed with +1 to All Skills Jewels.

Armor and Helmet:
Unique Archmage Robe, Magic Circlet with +2 Sorc Skills +2 Cold Skills and Medi Aura(Act 3 Alkor). I tried to get one with an Oak like Firesnake/Rychveldir BurningSorc, but I had no luck.

Weapon and Shield:
Winter - Everybody's choice here, rerolled an epic rare bone shield with an oak, max resists and 3 sockets. Before this one I used a magic ceremonial shield with an oak and 3 sockets.

Rumour Stuff:

Rings and Amulet:
I rerolled Killashandra's Rings very often to get this overwhelming output. Lvl 75 sorceress amulet cause of the nice +max resists and +20 to all attributes.

Merc and Merc Equipment

Act2 Hell Combat Merc with Conviction
Harlequin Crest Shako
Tasselhoff Set
6 socket magic Impaler with +8 to allskills
rare boots with CtC Shock armor when struck
