    Telekinesis and Energy Shield?

    What effect does telekinesis have on energy shield and why is it that everyone recommends one point in energy shield and rest in telekinesis?

    Also, when using energy shield, I find my mana gets drained almost instantly when I get hit by an archer or something.... how do I deal with that when I'm trying to teleport or something?

    the answer to the second question lies in the first.

    more points in telekinesis lowers the mana drain from energy shield.

    the reason telekinesis is needed is because it is now calculated before dr/res. that means that you take a huge mana drain from elemental dmg.

    for more in depth information, search the forums. possible keywords: "telekinesis", "energy shield"...

    Okay I searched up a bit on this, and I found that it will reach a 1:1 ratio (life:mana) at level 16 telekinesis, but yet everyone recommends max telekinesis. Does this mean it will actually drop to LOWER than a 1:1 ratio? Or are people simply not aware that it reaches 1:1 at level 16? Because I didn't see anything that said it could or couldn't go below 1:1, only that it reached it at level 16...

    Slvl 20 TK will make the ration 1:0.75, so every 4 damage diverted from life to mana will take 3 mana.
