    Why are there so many Lightning sorc ES questions recently? I had one of my own, but since then I've decided no max block. Max Block takes a lot of dex ( 150-200) and then only helps agaisnt melee characters. If you end up dueling a caster, you won't last long at all since of your low mana and health.

    Correct


    It does not take 150-200 dex to achieve max block, it depends on what shield you are using and what you socket it with. Also, adding points in dex does not give you low mana, simply less than one without it.

    Not that i know much about light e.s sorc's, im asking for help, but max block will save your phanny against melee...which seems to make you a better character because once ur energy shield is gone...your done...unless you have max block...am i correct?

    Yeah, sorry was a little busy. Yeah, maxing those skills is fine. Eld witstans is my shield of choice for this build and i dont think you will regret going max block expecially when dueling those mellee who just wont be able to hit you :D . About being done once your ES is gone unless having max block....well kinda....if you lose ur mana then get hit by a barbs ww, chances of surving are very slim, even with max block. It comes in handy when they are trying to get your mana down in the first place, for they cannot lower your mana if they cannot hit you :)

    Finding a 9es memory was hard for me and some people will charge alot for one (although i found the problem was finding someone with one rather than paying for it). I got a good deal on mine though, so just keep looking around. I dont remember exactly how much dex it takes sorry

    Lol, yes it is worth it, to me max block on this sorc is invaluable. You ask if its worth it, but if you are alrady pking you should be seeing the advantages...if your that worried if u made the right decision or not simply take off your shield and use lidless when dueling mellee, you will know right away if you made the right decision or not. BTW, don't listen to everyone you hear on Bnet, most of them have no idea what they are talking about. Oh and you will probably get crap for using things like mal/sol runes (if you are) just ignore it, cuz like i said most people have no idea what they are talking about.

    Sounds more like some kind of hybrid to me :cool: . Saint Sinner I wrote my guide leaving you with the option to choose max block or not. Your going to hear go for it and your going to hear don't, in the end its your call. Worst comes to worst just remake your sorc, no big deal. Just one last note, when i was dueling any mellee char, my moto was always "no absorb..no chance." Yeah i bit cocky but she really did that good against mellee (and caster btw ;) )
