    Put points on Nova last. Since it has no synergies, it has very little damage. If you want Energy Shield, you need to spend 20 points in Telekinesis and 10+ on ES itself. ES is great, but you will get lower damage output using it. I personally like to kill faster than to be safer. Also, if you are going to use SS, then max block is a must, but since most people are using Spirit shield now, I say you should go for base dex and max life.

    I made a ES/Light sorc last ladder and was dissapointed in my damage output due to lack of awesome items and the naturally lower damage of my spell because of lack of synergies I would probably reccomend a vita build with more lightning synergies maxed althought it is completely up to you.

    If you plan on using spirit shield then you probably dont care about max block

    If you plan on using stormshield or high block shield then its probably not a bad idea as a sorc only gets 2 pts of life per point with vita(it can be multiplied with BO from CTA runeword so its more effective) however i dont think you will have immediate access to it

    hope this helps but remember its your character do what you want

    i dont use ES and have low block.
    i rely on tele as my def.
    if u have 1pt to tle and like ~20 +skill gears then u use tle with 4 mana.
    1pt wonder in my opinion.

    right now i have a lvl 79 ligh sorc on ladder, she survives fine w/o ES OR max block teleport is really your bestfriend when it comes to defense (as long as you have decent FHR gear) and mana to use it (soj anyone?) damage is low w/o any skillers but hey, you cant win em all.
    as for synergy i really dont see the point of mazing nova, seeing as how damage is so low compared to lightning.

    so, around 250 points in vita which is 500hp is better than blocking 75% of the time? i meant block or es/vita in the above post.
