Last Updated: 23 May 2023

The Blizzard Fire Ball Sorceress, also referred to as the "Blizzball" Sorc is a special late game speed farming build. With a decent Faster Cast Rate Breakpoint and use of the Teleport Skill, this build can easily arrive at specific locations quickly for target farming. FireBall itself has a great damage output, great for quickly popping Players 1 Elite packs. Blizzard is used as a secondary Skill, but is great for quickly taking out Fire Immunes.
Stack a lot of x% Better Chance of Getting Magic Items (MF) and focus on going quickly from pack to pack. This build specializes in Ancient Tunnels farming but because we are a Cold and Fire Damage hybrid this can open up many areas of farming.
Static Field and your Mercenary with Infinity Giant Thresher helps against resistant mobs.

Build Variants



The starter to the Blizzard Fire Ball Sorceress is more of a budget build, this build is primarily for Endgame. We cannot spec into blizzard yet. Things that we are looking for on this build are Faster Cast Rate, + to Skills for our Sorceress as well as MF. Focus on just getting more stats such as Life, Mana, Resistances, Faster Hit Recovery, and Faster Run/Walk, are all good things to have - Be on the look-out for them!


To keep your Mercenary alive, equip him with a Body Armor and Helmet which provide Resistances and Life. Insight is a pretty easy Runeword to find that gives a great amount of damage and Quality of Life with Meditation. Hire the Might Aura Mercenary, to gain increase his Physical Damage.


Put 1 Skill Point into each of the following Skills:
1. Warmth
2. Static Field
3. Telekinesis
4. Teleport
5. Frozen Armor

Max out the following Skills in this order:

  • 105% FCR Breakpoint is crucial for Standard play!
  • Put enough Stat Points into Strength to wear gear, and all the rest goes into Vitality.
  • Use Telekinesis any time you can to save time.
  • Teleport quickly from place to place killing Elite Packs as you go quickly with FireBall.
  • Use Blizzard against Fire Immunes.
  • Insight Mercenary solves your Mana problems in early stages.
  • Keep your Battle Command, Battle Orders, and Frozen Armor buffs up at all times. If Hardcore, keep up Energy Shield.

We hope you enjoy this build! It can be very fun and very rewarding, especially once you get practiced with it. Decimating the enemies with FireBall in Ancient Tunnels or Stoney Tomb can be quite fun.

Good luck!
