View Full Version : which shield for es/block sorc?
Sanctuary Towershield or Whistan's guard eld?
this will be a es/block lighting sorc
Storm shield, or Spirit. Sanct and Whistan's blow...
Spirit shield for max block? you think so?
It's a decision between resistances and more free stats (life/mana). More life and/or more mana sounds like a better bet since you're using ES.
How about mosers then? Good block, res and two sockets?
I'd say Whistan's best for blocking. Spirit monarchs? As good as blocking with cracked bucklers ... :rolleyes:
Low str req = more stat pts available to pump into vita/energy...
If you can get the str, Stormshield is the king. I had a sorc that used CoH, rings, torch, anni +raw addeds str points to get to the 156 mark. You could also hel it I suppose.
If your ES is gonna be 95%, you wont need high resists...since they dont factor in on ES (poison res helpful though). Id say look at viscauterant (eld) for +skill good block. Whistans is ok, but basically super block and thats it...visc is better IMHO. In fact, with 95% es, dr becomes pretty useless too! So, visc seems like a great choice to me...
Dont max block with spirit...wayyy too much dex.
Gerkes Sanctuary could be pretty fun too. :)
So choices are....
Visc shield eld
alright that breaks down pretty fast.
Anybody think Sanctuary R/W in Tower works? just wondering
Visc needs to be upped for better blocking, also sur here is an (expensive) option
I guess sanc could work also. Maybe run some numbers with your other planned gear to compare: dex req's, str req's needed and other bunusses like resists, skills.
