D2R 2.5 Frozen Orb Sorceress Sunder Charm Setup

With the sunder charms and terror zones added in Diablo 2 Resurrected Patch 2.5, the cold sorceress is arguably the strongest starter for D2R 2.5 Ladder Season 2. To optimize the Cold Rupture, we're going to use Cold Mastery, which will be the biggest damage increase of any gear you're wearing. In addition, to counter cold damage, you just need to wear some cold-resistance charms or D2R ladder items. You can even go for train gloves, they have 30 cold resistance on them if you want, it's also good if you need extra FCR train gloves for some reason.
