energy shield having finally had a chance to test it, i believe that energy shield is detrimental to sorcs in hell. as most people already know, es has been changed in .10 to ignore player's resistance, and take the full damage from mana. i haven't seen it directly myself, but i have been in countless baalrun games where "some_sorc was killed by black soul." this led me to believe that energy shield was the culprit. what i figure is that the sorc meets a gloam, is hit by a bolt, has all their mana sucked from them in 1, and then can't teleport away. the next bolt kills them. or, the bolt does so much damage that it immediately shuts off es by making mana 0, and still has enough damage left in the same bolt to kill the sorc. i am trying to get exact numbers from the stats forum, but so far still no answers. using an 85 resistance sorc with tgods and no es, i am able to take managable damage from even gloam bosspacks. my barb under the same circumstances takes almost nothing. i would like to hear from es users: 1. what happens when you meet a worldstone gloam? 2. what happens with melee attacks? 3. does 20 telekenesis help?
