Fire Sorceress Guide

Skill Points

  • Telekinesis [1]
  • Teleport [1]
  • Static Field [1]
  • Cold Mastery [1]
  • Firebolt [10]
  • Fire Mastery [20]
  • Meteor [20] – 1 point in all prerequisites

Stat Points

You’ll want enough strength for your build, which will change from person to person depending on their charms, starting gear, etc. You’ll likely want to reroll as you start to get geared up as you’ll later be able to move a lot of your strength points into vitality.

  • Strength – Enough for gear.
  • Dexterity – None
  • Vitality – The remainder of your points.
  • Energy – None

It might seem strange that you don’t put any points in energy seeing as you use mana, but between your Mercenary and your gear, you’ll have plenty of mana regeneration.

Fire Orb Sorceress Gear

  • Helmet – Shako with a Perfect Topaz in it for extra magic find.
  • Amulet – Maras. The +2 Skills and resistances is a huge help.
  • Weapon – The Oculus. Offers vitality, FCR, and magic find. Other options are HOTO or Eschutas.
  • Armor – Archon Plate Chains of Honor or Skullders/Viper Magi if you need something cheap.
  • Shield – Spirit Monarch or Lidless Wall if you need a cheaper option.
  • Gloves – Magefists. The +1 to fire skills and 20% FCR is nice. The mana regeneration is also a huge help.
  • Belt – Arachnic Mesh or Goldwrap as the cheaper option.
  • Boots – War travelers or Sandstorm Trek.
  • Rings – 1 Raven Frost for the can’t be frozen mod and 1 Soj or Nagel ring.


You’ll want to get an Act 2 defensive mercenary from Nightmare mode which will freeze enemies when he gets near them. Equip him with an Infinity which is going to deal a ton of damage. For armor Eth Fortitude is best (remember Eth offers more defense and mercenaries don’t lower durability) and Andy’s Helm.

Best Places to MF with Meteor Orb Sorc

  • Cows – the classic area. High density, no immunities, and quick clear.
  • Andariel
  • Mephisto
  • Baal and his minions

Good luck on the grind and may the drops forever be good to you.
