So far i do not see many changes, but based only on patch notes, i think cold + fire would be a bit better for now.
Need to test, for sure...

I've been running cold + fire (currently level 112). The main problem seems to be single target damage.

With cold-light you got Thunderstone, although it didn't solve the problem of fast moving targets with high hp.

With cold-fire it takes a long time to kill even the stationary high-hp targets - even 1pt Abyss can take a very long time (did they up the cold resist of some monsters?). A real RSI-inducing build! :(

I may park the sorc until I get an SU with an oskill on another character.

Playing cold + fire you have flamestrike - stacked flamestrikes take any boss in seconds, only mana is a problem. Something changed?

Flamestrike not good for moving targets. Twilight Havoc has cooldown?

cold / light ( cold main, light for buff ) will do you well for most contents, the damage is there, survivability is there. Not the fastest farmer, not the best single target deeps, but it does the job done for most of the part.

Itemization isnt the best, 80% of gear was tu4 until i reached 130, most of bis gear will be crafts.

is actually incredibly good. It gives you tons of survivability including the deeps from vengeful power. Having this shield you can easily skip lightning and go full deeps > poison or with more life > fire.

Majority of ubers are standard, pretty easy, though there are some that will annoy the shit out of you simply because it lacks single target.

With new Flamefront changes, i believe fire might be one of the strongest routes at the moment. You can offscreen quite a bit with new changes, mana is not a problem whatsoever (maybe while leveling), you wont be standing still and spamming flamestrike anyways. Though for this
