    help with tank sorc

    hi..

    i need help with a tank sorc
    would this sorc be a good idea? -->

    max warmth
    max energy shield
    max telekinese (synergy for ES)
    1-20 shiver armor
    20 frozen orb
    1 cold mastery
    1 teleport
    rest in static

    someone explained the benefit's from "damage goes to mana" but with these forums down.. :s

    anyway, i would like to go max block with storm
    str to req
    base vit
    rest in ene (yes, rest in ene)

    why rest in ene? the more mana you have, the greater your mana regain is (no?)

    anyway, help plz..:)

    That sorc wouldnt die too much I guess. But it wouldnt be to powerful either.

    More mana does not mean more mana regen. Mana regen rate is at a set rate, more mana simply means it will take longer to regen your bulb full.

    Dmg to mana works like this. The dmg you actually take....goes to mana. Its not what dmg someone tries to inflict on you. Say you have 75% dmg to mana Someone hits you for 600 physical dmg. Lets assume you have a basic little 75% energy sheild too. That means that 450 mana will be taken away, leaving 150 dmg left to your health. Of that 150, 75% of it will return to mana...or 112 back to mana. Does that make sense?

    I think this is a horrible sorc build personally...but if thats how you wanna play...so be it. I tend to lean towards not getting hit with my sorc by being quick on the teleport and playing smart.

    That sorc would die easily.

    With max es, you still don't absorb 100%. A magical attack such as a bone spear would pierce your ES unresisted, and pack quite a punch doing it.
