Spirit RW question

Rarely do I ever see the property Magic absorb, or Magic damage reduce...

I'm planning on making an es/orb sorc once there is reset, seeing this pretty little shield made me think, just how useful is this Magic absorb 3-8?

Thanks in advance for replying!

Not very since all it does is after damage is calculated, if you don't die, you get back twice as many life points as your magic absorb from the shield. On the other hand there are plenty of other reasons to love a "Spirit" shield!

Try gerke if you intend on going seriously with ES. Good blocking, good res, great pdr and mdr. What to ask more for energy shield? Maybe a little less str req than 133.. But well, nothing's perfect.

Gerke is good, and Spirit on a non-paladin is 146 at least, 13 more than gerke. (and 23 more if you want a repairable shield). So use gerke until you can use gladiator's. Then you'll probably not need it anymore, and should switch to a spirit.

Note that gerke aslo has very good blocking, so an 'Eld' Gerke's Sanctuary can net you max block with relatively few points in dex.

Max block with spirit will be something of a challenge...
