Energy Shield Im not really sure if I see the point. My sorc build is the basic meteorb. I was thinking of puting 8 hard points into ES for about a 55% abosrb. I would be adding to energy alot and vitality here and there. It is a hard-core untwinked vanilla char. Now what is the point of ES if when I get hit its still going to be doing around 50% to my health. I thought the point was to have a huge mana pool to not have to worry about health. It cuts off to quick though. I was also thinking of using lightning instead of fire skills. In this case the mana cost's are a bit higher where a big mana pool would be helpfull. So what is the deal with ES? I want a big mana pool but it seems odd to disregard life for just a 55% abosrb.
