Cold Spells (Diablo II)
Since this skill tree does not require as powerful items as other skill trees, it is often a good starting point for poorer players, as a decent amount of damage can be reached, and battle is significantly slowed down by the cold effects instilled in your enemies.
Personal Opinion: I often use a Blizzard-based Sorceress if I'm starting in the wake of a Ladder Reset or if I'm particularly poor. They're easy to get up and running, as they do not *require* as good of gear as other builds in order to be efficient, and they make excellent boss runners, as Blizzard not only slows, but also hits multiple times at once. Slowing down an enemy with Blizzard and then spamming the monster with Ice Blast while you're waiting for the cool-down period for Blizzard to time out is a very effective way of taking down enemies and bosses.
