ES and Max Block Hmm I keep hearing that ES and a shield don't work well together.. how is that? Does it has to do with stats points or something? I just don't get it why these two safety feauture won't work together. I play HC so i'm trying to build the safest sorcy possible yet enjoying my style of gameplay = ES/FO Since I'm here I just can't find any guide that adress the kind of build I want to do, maybe someone can point me to the right direction. My planed build was: Cold Tree: 20- FO 1- CM (5 pre-req) Fire Tree 20- Fireball 20- Firebolt 1- Warmth Light Tree: 1- Static Field 10- Teleknesis (will pump this later after build is finished) 10- ES (5 pre-req) Total of 93 skils points. Core build finished at lvl 81 After that either pump TK (original plan) or pump Cold Mastery. This is for HC play mostly soloing or with no more than 2-3 players. You guys think this build is viable? Now to get back to my initial question. I was planing on distributing my stats the following: STR- 88ish DEX- whatever it takes to get max block VIT- 0 NRG- left overs again is this viable?
