    cyclonearmor/ES

    Is damage applied to cyclone armor or energy shield first? Essentially, will CA stop all elemental damage before dmg hits ES? That would save some space for resists. Thanks in advance

    I don't know the answer but if CA is aplied before ES then the ES sorc just became legit... still I think max block would be important to ES sorc and because most of us dont have abunch of extra Infinitys laying around I would be hard pressed to put one on switch, I am asuming that you would be using Infinity for CA. so in the end I would probably continue to avoid ES...

    Cyclone Armor and Energy Shield are both applied before resists, as if you have 0 resist in another word. Although this makes it less ideal, the good thing is that it doesn't suffer from the -100 base resist in hell either. So you're right that resist is not very important when using CA or ES. As for which one gets applied first, I don't know; but I can't think of a way to get them both onto the same char either:smiley:.
    Edit: Interesting, I've never noticed the CA charges on Infinity:tongue:.
