    My sorc's name is Astro_Glide on uswest softcore. I want to take this sorc all the way.. talkin level 95! :)

    Anyways my char is level 73 now. I have max ice orb and 3 in cold mastery. I have max fire wall and max fire mastery(4600dmg/sec). I have 5 in energy shield and 5 in warmth. I went for orb because I like the pk ability and well fire wall just owns..

    Right now my resists suck bad.. they hover right around 0 to -5%. What are some ultimate sorc items for me to get? Right now I have razorswitch(+175mana 30% cast +80 life +50allresist magic reduced by 12) <--- what gem do I put in that?? I got a Quang-something something honor. (unique mage plate +1 all skill faster cast and magic dmg reduced by 10 + a p topaz) I have waterwalk/goldwrap 1.09 mahim oak and a 53% tarn and frosts. My points are distributed this way. 55str, stock dex(no extra dex) 170vit, 210energy.

    I need to know what ultimate items to try and get(or craft). I would greatly appreciate any input you guys could give me on anything at all.

    btw wanna add me to your buddy list my account is ^Zen .

    I don't know, but you seem to ask question about items. Since you're not playying hardcore, I suggest you max yourself with mf, ignore resistance for now and go for some single player hunting.

    If you intend go up to 95, follow baal runs, I know it's boring but it's the only way to get exp.

    In terms of skills, you seem pretty ok. when you have firewall, you don't really need static field to make things go faster.

    Auto's right, vipermagi or even a "smoke" 2 socket low str. elite armor (2 socket archon to look cool, or wyrmhide to keep reqs even lower) OWNZ goldskin.

    (before someone flames me for the previous post, look at smack's avatar... how could I resist? :cool: )

    Charly's right - get to your 80s, use 200+ MF gear and meph runs (tele straight to meph ignoring all else and kill him) to get leveling gear, or the items you need to trade for leveling gear. Past 85, you'll need lots of life and max resists because dying will not be an option while trying to level (one death will negate several hours worth of work).

    For a leveling shield you want a 4 socket monarch (elite kite shield) with 4 UM runes. Block % means nothing since your dex is so low and the monarch is the highest def light shield that can get 4 sockets (with low reqs). A magical 25% resist all troll nest (elite bone shield) or blade barrier socketed (getting lucky with 2 sockets) with 2 UM runes works pretty well too and might be easier to pull off (i.e. you can shop for them at anya in hell with a high lvl char).

    Oh, and a point or two in one of those cold armor skills (that adds % to def) won't hurt you any either.
