Welcome to our guide for farming with a cold skills Sorc. The blizzard sorceress is one of the most played magic finding characters around. Along with the frozen orb sorc, they make quick work of most enemies. Listed below are the zones in hell difficulty that range from easiest to hardest.
Andariel is one of the easiest farms for a cold sorc. There are very few cold immunes and she drops good items. To get to Andariel, travel to the Catacombs level 2 waypoint and search for the way down to the Catacombs level 4.
Mephisto is the easiest farm for a cold sorc due to the ability to use the mote glitch to take zero damage and kill him easily. To get to Mephisto, use the waypoint to travel to the Durance of Hate level 2 and find the Durance of Hate level 3. If you do not know how to do the mote glitch, please refer to our Glitches, Tips, and Tricks guide.
Pindleskin is a fast and easy farm for a cold sorc. He can drop just about any item in the game and is rarely cold immune. To get to Pindleskin you must have saved Anya and opened the portal to Nihlathak’s Temple. If you need information on how to save Anya, please visit quest number 3 in our Act III complete guide.
#4 Ancient Tunnels
The Ancient Tunnels are the perfect place for a Cold Sorc. There are no regular cold immunes. The unique mobs can roll Immune to cold so be sure to have a mercenary that can kill them for you. The best part about the Ancient tunnels is that the champion and unique monsters can drop any item in the game as it is a level 85 zone. To get to the Ancient Tunnels, take the waypoint to the Lost City in Act II and search for the trap door entrance in the scattered city ruins.
Travincal is a little harder for a cold sorc to farm. The uniques can have mana burns and at least one is usually cold immune. If you have a strong mercenary and decent gear, Travincal can be a good place to farm. It’s fast to get to, and has the chance to drop high runes. To get to Travincal, take the waypoint to Travincal and make your way to the north temple.
#6 Chaos Sanctuary
The Chaos Sanctuary can be a great place for a cold sorc to farm. You will need a strong mercenary to kill the caster cold immunes as well as one of the seal bosses. This place should only be attempted if you have decent gear and a strong mercenary. To get to the Chaos Sanctuary, Take the River of Flame waypoint in act 4 and make your way across the bridge into the sanctuary.
Baal and the Worldstone Keep is a decent place to farm for a cold sorc. The only cold immune regular mobs are the harpies which are easy prey for a strong mercenary and the exploding mobs.
This farm should only be attempted if you have good gear and a very strong mercenary. If there is a wave you cannot kill, you can kite it outside the entrance and teleport back to baal and he will move on to the next wave. To get to Baal, Take the waypoint to the Worldstone Keep Level 2 in Act V. Once there make your way down the levels until you reach the Throne of Destruction. Once there make your way to Baal and be ready to fight the waves of minions.
