    How much energy/vita for ES 200%FCR FBer?!?

    I was thinking 100 vita and rest into energy. My planned equip is as follow (BTW this is for NL):

    Equip:
    Helm: 2/20 Circlet or just a plain 20%FCR circlet (I still havn't found one yet)
    Armour: Up'd Vipermagi 30%FCR
    Belt: Arach 20%FCR
    Weapon: Wizspike with -15%Req/15%All Resist Jewel 50%FCR
    Shield: Lidless 20%FCR
    Glove: Up'd Magefist 20%FCR
    Boot: Waterwalk
    Ammy: 2/20 Ammy 20%FCR
    Rings: 10%FCR Rings 20%FCR

    Skill:
    MAX Firebolt
    MAX Fireball
    MAX Meteor
    MAX Fire Mastery
    Rest into Energy Shield?? (Around 71%Absorb)

    The only thing I'm worried about is the stats as I dunno if I have too little life since my ES is only at 71%. Any suggestions are appreciated.

    The guide you see in the pvp foruem is mine, and yes, if you have decent gear, base energy is the way to go for serveral reasons

    first, in terms of pvp, vita is the most important stat there is
    second, if you have decent gear with bo, your mana will reach at least 1k ish, not quite high enough for eshield to do much ( it will actually end up hurting you if you use eshield with no tk skills with low mana )

    so if you dont have the gear, I suggest you just make your sorc a 200 fcr fb one, dont bother with es, since it will end up to your own disadvantage
    and by the way, you should always max telekensis before energy shield for syenergy purposes making es more effective. good luck :thumbsup:

    the only reason you can go base energy is you use 70/15s.....

    Ya I have all the gear required EXCEPT the 70/15. Thats why I'm wondering about the stats placement for a 200%FCR ES FBer that does not utilise 70/15. Would 100 Vit/Rest Energy be sufficient or 100Energy/Vita the way to go? Thanks for any help.

    I have built 3 of these sorcies and 100Energy/Rest Vita worked best for me, it gives you a nice mana pool, plus I used at many 17mana/5fhr sc's as possible, as I was hitting the last FHR BP, it worked very well.

    I can see that all Vita is possible, relying on not getting hit to much due to your speed, but if something like FoH comes along, I prefer my Max res, Max FCR, Max FHR, Max Block, Big mana version much more.


    ...


    It's nice to be back.

    I remember you talking about the 200% fcr ES sorc with max block...so you managed to make it? Could you post your stats, etc, for that one? I'm curious as to how you had any stats left at all for Vitality. Sounds very interesting.

    Screw rings... I prefered a big ol' 2 SoJ's and a 20FCR ammy, thats a HUGE boost to mana if you can score a nice one. Sadly I no longer play, and have no chars or items, due to a nice little giveaway. Sorry, but I do know it is possible, and dare I say, it was my best char to date.
