Fire and Mana are definitely also good builds, and there are a handful of solid but expensive oskill builds (Phoenix Wave, Glacial Nova), but these are probably the ones you want to start looking at.

lvl: Cold/Fire/Lightning, always be away from melee, melee has only one use: do sam 11 mins' bonus quest in late game if ur mana/cold cant do it comfortably.
Late game:
Fire(cheap, high labs viable, dont go those oskill versions such as Phoenix Wave, is they are not cheap, the other is they just stop at scos, labs awkward)
Lightning(labs awkward)
Cold(sam viable, not cheap but really good, need to go voidstar from Despondence staff in high labs)
Mana(very good as long as u can afford the relics and plenty
Zayl's Soul Orb
Zayl's Soul Orb
Mystic Orb

Right-Click to Apply
2% to Energy
+100 to Mana
Half Freeze Duration
+10 Required Level
, sam viable, labs viable)
Melee(Why melee in late game? Scos awkward, boss killing awkward, labs awkward..... Cant be compared to other sorc builds mentioned above in late game. Just forget about melee sorc in current version. Maybe u can try it in 2.3 if devs are kind enough to show some love for melee sorc in 2.3 which I highly doubt about)

Fire Sorc rules.

One of the few builds that has solid AoE and solid single-target damage.
