    Full Block Blizz sorc: to ES or not to ES?

    Based on my last post and the responses, I've decided to go full block. This puts a lot of strain on my vitality, as I'll be going for SS + enough dex for 75% block.

    I'm going to put 1 point into warmth, 1 point into teleport + prereq, the rest BLizz + CM + synergies.

    From what I hear, buy a staff that's +shiver armor, instead of wasting those 2 points to get it. Is this correct?

    Now the big question: energy shield. Should I use it? Or not? If I do, should I put all the points into those prereqs, or just try to buy a +energy shield staff (with +shiver armor, ideally if I shouldn't put points into that either)?

    EDIT: this is for Hardcore

    I'd stay with high resists and life, rather than ES.

    Energy sheild will just drain your mana and get you killed if you cant invest enough points in it. I say max damage and block with good resists you will be fine.
