ahhh +3 ES memory staff....

Every Energy Shield guide recommends the use of a "Memory" staff with a +3 ES staffmod. Where do you all get these things??? I have never come across one, and if I understand the game mechanics correctly, they can't be shopped.

As a side note, I am making a somewhat colorful non-traditional Energy Sorc with max ES and TK along with max Firewall, Charged Bolt, and (close to max) Lightning (with one point in masteries). Has anyone ever made anything like this? It won't have the world's best kill power, but it should be a lot of fun, especially for hardcore.

Memory is a runeword which gives +3 to ES and +3 to all sorc skills IIRC. Find a white staff with +3 ES , socket it for 4 socks and make memory - voila; +9 ES staff. Enjoy!

Re: ahhh +3 ES memory staff....

These staffs can be worth quite a bit, I know on NL they go for 8-12hrs, so they aren't cheap. I've found two of them in about 4 years of playing, so they aren't extremely common. However, you could easily just find a staff that has skills that you want, and if it has ES as well all the better. The difference between a 8 and 9 ES memory staff is small, and it might be worth it to just make memory in a staff with other useful mods besides ES.

I made a 9 ES memory @ EuHCL once.. any idea what it was worth before reset? I gave it away though

The perfect energy shield build would be a real tank. But in the offensive department, have a hard time with normal andy. It would look something like 20 es, 20 telekenisis, 20 warmth, 20 shiver armor,20 frozen armor and the rest into shiver armor. A perfect es, along with warmth to keep the mana up, and armors for defence. With enough pdr and mdr (30-40 in each is good), it would be a better tank than barbs against non-manaburners.

Re: ahhh +3 ES memory staff....

why are these worth so much? DO people use these as a switch to get Es?

^^well, it is the highest +ES you can get from both weapon/shield slots. next best is probably a +3 lightning skills/ES orb (pretty rare) with spirit shield which only gives +8ES.

Re: ahhh +3 ES memory staff....

can't you buy these in Act2 norm?
Sadly, no. The highest "tier" of +skill you can get from the vendor is the level18 skills (Glacial Spike, Chain Lightning, Enchant, etc.). That vendor is a good source for a +3 Enchant/2-socket staff though (for making a Leaf runeword and getting +6 Enchant).


I think to find a +3ES staff, I'd probably run Cows (in Normal or Nightmare) in a 8-player game with very little MF. Or just trade for one. :crazyeyes:
