    What ist the best armour for Barb x sorc?

    what armour would be better for a barb to fight a sorceress (for example, a meteorb):

    - Guardian Angel due to 90% resists all (can be up to 95% resist to fire with the right equip)?

    - Enigma due to Teleport and other attributes?

    I would appreciate other suggestions too.

    Is absorption capped to 50% in 1.10? (I read that somewhere)

    my personal experience is that most fire sorcs expect thier spells to kill in one - two hits so they dont teleport. They stand and cast like a mofo. If you meet one of the smarter ones that stay's moving i'd say use enigma. Her teleport is going to be faster than yours, but it allows you to move out of a tight spot and maybe catch her off gaurd. Gaurdian angel doesn't have +resistances, just adds to the max your resistances can be (if i remember correctly) so its not much help. I'd wear 2 dwarf stars + infernostride boots to help yourself out.

    use rising sun, 2x dwarf star, and hotspurs then you wont have to use GA

    I use Lionheart in Archon plate w/2 DwarfStars vs Firesorc,..light for my run/walk to kick in, and some nice resits/life and goodies.

    Cheap and effective, works for me.:)

    just a couple of ideas:
    absorb is better for frame-based damage (fire burns, lighting), resists is better for single frame damage (fire explosions.)

    i have tested this extensively in pvm, not pvp: leap attack avoids targetted spells.

    in pvm i have avoided:
    bone spirit
    baal's ice attacks
    inferno
    cold/fire/poison bolts
    flaming patches

    some i couldn't, such as baal's mana suck attack, but it seems to be buggy as even chars out of range or in a different area will get hit by it.

    Does FCR affect how fast you jump and land in leap attack?
