    Spirit vs Hoto on 105 FCR ES Max block fire Sorc

    Ok, first off a 35 FCR spirit sword + viper + mage + arach gives 105 FCR. Spirit loses a skill but the massive 55 FHR + 20 from treks + one burning grand charm of balance = 87 FHR. That means the sockets I have from viper and shako can be faceted instead of shael'ed, which more than makes up for the lack of a skill.

    The problem, I think, is resists. My fire sorc is more of a budget type of character, without the godly gears (I tend to buy the lower end stuff to save money). Using the hoto, I have 30 + Mara's (20) + vipermagi (34) + Anni + Torch (20) = Roughly 0 resistance in hell. Using a spirit sword, I end up with -30 resistance in hell. I guess that would be okay with a 95 ES, but mine happens to be 79%. So would that be a problem in pvp?

    Edit: it was (if I'd turned my brain on first). I'm a noob. :rolleyes:

    Sorry for spamming up your thread.

    I think that max block with a stormshield is quite a waste with the huge strength requirement and then a larger dex investment to get max block. Add in 100 vitality, and you've got almost nothing for energy.

    I went with an upped Visceratuant, which I feel is rather underrated. The upped shield has more blocking than Stormshield, FBR, a light strength requirement and to top it off, +1 sorc skills.
