pure lightsorc, energy shield or not? hc pvm Just wondering here what you guys' take on energy shield is, i am making a pure light sorc solely for countess and meph farming, once im very comfortable with that, in the future, i might add more bosses and whatnot, either way, at the moment im only focusing on those two. So, last ladder i had an orber farming meph extremely effectively with about 400mf, but i was always annoyed by having to let my merc kill the entire countess room each time i went to do her, especially since he for some reason consistently picked the countess last. back then i was using energy shield, mainly because with 20 orb and CM, my dmg was pretty much not gonna change anyways, so spending some points on security was an obvious choice. this time though, as i mentioned, im making a light sorc, and im sitting here looking at their skill tree, wondering wether to spend 21 points on kinesis/ES, or to spend them on a synergy.. what i got atm is: 20 in lightning/chainlight./light. mastery 10 in teleport 1 in static 1 in warmth 1 in shiver armor 1 in prereqs thats 78 points, so with quests rewards and a little leveling im thinking ill end up somewhere around an additional 20 points before i start farming it up, which leaves me with the question, nova/charged bolt, or energy shield? on my cold sorc it always seemed like shiver armor was enough to get me out of anywhere, without taking any hits (with decent fcr and fbr), but as a lightsorc, ill need a whole lot more +skills, which leaves me with less room for stacking my defenses, and im worried about running into some hax bosspack thatll instagib me. the thing is, with the additional points in vit rather than energy, it might balance itself out a bit. thanks for any help you can give me, i'd especially love to hear from someone who've used a lightsorc to farm countess, since im pretty farmiliar with the mobs that spawn in durance, but never really tele'd much through cellar. thanks!
