    Frozen armor

    Is it good to spend 1 point in Frozen Armor for my cold sorc?

    I don't think I need it for the defence bonus but maybe it's good enough to freeze attackers? (i have +9 skills)

    - thanx -

    i never put any points in the cold armors. some people like to, but honestly, the defense boost does not make much of a difference. if you go for max block (which i usually do) then the extra defense seems even more pointless. i think it used to be worth a point, but now with synergies, you need every last skill point you can get to boost damage. but i suppose for single tree sorcs, taking one point out of the last synergy and putting it in a cold armor isnt the end of the world :D it does look pretty...so you could do it for that reason...

    The freeze length isn't worth much in Hell, so it's only for the defense bonus. It's not such a bad way to spend 1 pt. Makes Normal mode easier on you, at least. I usually spend 1pt in Frost Nova for crowd control.

    If you can spare 5 points though, it's much better to get 1pt Shiver Armour. More defense, more useful chill time.

    ok, thanx

    I dont need the defense bonus so I wont spend a point there.

    How about warmth? 1 point in warmth gives me 138% mana regeneration.. worth it?

    Very much worth it...With the "no points in energy" "rule" most sorceresses run out of mana from time to time, and 1 point for 138% mana regeneration is quite cheap in my opinion. Having a steady supply of mana isn't just to avoid the hassle of stocking up on potions, running out of mana at the wrong time can be very dangerous.

    If you buy a +3 Shiver Armour staff and keep it on switch you should be fine.
    That's what I do.
