Iirc the difference back then was that you couldn't stack res to counter it. Not sure pvm wise though.
The way I remember it was that Fire- and Light-based sorceresses were considered completely useless and unviable in pvm due to monsters' resistances achieving too high a value later on in the game, leading to your respective spells dealing close to no damage.
EVERYONE in PC Cafes who was playing a sorc, was hooked onto the glacial spike-frozen orb meta, precisely due to the presence of Cold Mastery, which actually made the Sorc viable AT ALL
What I also remember from these days was that the barb was considered OP as fuck, spearzon was imba (jab speed...) whereas bowazon sucked.
Paladin was rad, but everyone was fearful of getting Zeal-locked (unlimited number of hits, as opposed to limited to 5...).
Necro summons sucked, unless you perused bugs, which then made them OP.
Sorc was considered the weakest, due to her extremely woeful hit recovery rate, and complete uselessness of Fire and Lightning.
