I was planning on making a ES Orber with the following gear/skill/stats:
Skill build is obvious: 20 frozenorb, 20 ice bolt, 20 cold mastery, 20 TK, rest into ES. 1 point warmth/teleport. Are any of the cold armors worth it? The general consensus seems to be that Chilling Armor does NOT reflect stuff in PvP, so I may skip on armor.
Gear: Target FCR breakpoint is 105 of course and 86 FHR.
Nightwings w/ cold facet
Fathom w/ Cold Facet
Ormus, +3 ES w/ Cold Facet
35 FCR spirit monarch
2 x soj
I have a nice +2 cold, 10 FCR with resists amulet, should work perfectly
Skillers: I think I may just go with plain skillers, maybe a 12 FHR one to get me to 86 FHR. I should have lots of mana anyway with 2 soj/frostburns. I may consider swapping Treks for silkweave.
Stats: I get +19 to all skills so I will probably have around level 25-30 ES. I believe this will be around 80% ES, can't tell for sure because Indiablo's site is down atm. I don't really like to prebuff with Memory staves and the like. Now as I don't have a 95 ES build, going base vita would be rather foolish. What would be a good spot to hit vitality to, before pumping the rest of the points in energy? I think 100 would do, any tips?
Resists are low but as this is ES build, it shouldn't be that big of a problem.
I end up with exactly 105 FCR, with maximum mana and very powerful damage. With 1 FHR cold GC, I get 86 FHR as well. As I am playing pubs I think the lack of a block is perfectly fine as everyone in pub is either hammerdin/smiter/sorc/FC zon etc...
