Is there a reason to use SS with a ES sorc?

I am making an ES/Orb sorc and I am wondering if it is worth it to use Enigma and SS. DOes the Dr apply after the energy shield or before? And is the block bonus worth it?

DR is applied AFTER energy shield so if you've maxed your energy shield and telekinesis then no its not.

yes but most es sorcs use sanc or winstons because of better block %
id use a winstons with eld or ber and save myself from investing 100 ish strength when i could prolly make a es sorc with base strength.

A good Gerke's Sanctuary would probably yield mucho better survival improvement than SS for a ES sorc. Decent block, relative low strength requirement with a -15 req j00l.

If you are going full ES for boots you should get silkweaves for the extra boost to mana. With an ES sorc mana = life. The more mana you have the better. Actually gear set up with a full ES sorc is alot different from traditional sorc builds. You should check out the ES guide thats stickied in the sorc guide Library.
