Fire Abosrb?

I've been having alot of trouble with sorcs, especially fure sorces with my lib. Can anyone explain to me how fire abosrb works? I have a raising sun and dwarf stars but cant figure out exactly what they do.

probably not the best way to explain it but fire damage absorbed is converted to life, its probably more technical than that :uhhuh: you might need more fire resist/absorb so heres a couple more

+15% to Maximum Fire Resist
+15 to Life
Adds 3-6 Fire Damage
+6 Defense
+45% to Fire Resist
+10-20% Enhanced Defense

Adds 15-72 Fire Damage
Absorbs 15 Fire Damage
+150-200% Enhanced Defense
+15 Increased Durability
2% Chance of casting slvl 4 Meteor On Striking
4% Chance of casting slvl 12 Firestorm On Striking

Guardian Angel
+4 Light Radius
+1 To Paladin Skills
+180-200% Enhanced Defense
30% Faster Blocking
+15% Maximum Resistance To All
+5 to Attack Rating Against Demons per clvl
+20 Chance to Block %

lots of ways to deal with it. dwarfs and rising you already mentioned, but +max resists is many times more effective than straight absorb. use a pair of hotspurs, waterwalks, infernostrides, or even a nokozan relic (one of my favorite choices). actually, on ladder, a phoenix is a great, although expensive, choice, especially for charge switch. you lose block (not like you need it), but gain fire absorb (meh) and 10 max fire resist, on top of a boatload of damage and life (jah in shield...). could be a useful switch for a libby.

thats what i expierenced using rising sun in pvm (think its going same way in pvp)

if u get hit by fire ball u simply loose some life and im not sure if it makes ur life rises

if u get hit by meteor u loose ur life as well but when u stay in fire ur life is going up rapidly

to be honest use hotspurs and make sure u have 90 + fire resist (nice umed kiras gives u that or umed HOZ) and there is no way that fire sorc hurts u
