    What shield

    The shield skills...

    Which ones the best?

    Some say energy, some say frozen, some say chilling, i just dont know.

    Frozen seems nice and only costs 1 skill point and freezing seems more impressive than just mere cold damage tho the duration is higher with the cold damage.

    Help me please, im doing PvM and i just want to be able to run the game through, nothing fancy like pit runs or baal.

    For PvM, go with Shiver armor. Reason? It affects melee monsters (chilling armor's effects are a bit late, because you are already hit), and, unlike Frozen armor, it chills monsters WHILE THEY SWING, that is, they SWING slower. You can tele away meanwhile. Frozen armor works when an enemy lands a blow, and that's a tad too late.

    got ~30 skillpoints to spend? Energy Shield.

    Personally, I don't ever bother with any cold armour unless I'm playing an 'up-close-and-personal' sorc (read: melee and/or Nova and/or Charged Bolt). If I did use one though, it would be Shiver for the reason ProfessionalBerg mentioned.

    ... or Chilling armour for a PvP build.

    Energy Shield sucks imo. U get hit and lose all ur mana and then can't tele away or kill the monsters around u. And my merc even has an insight and it doesn't work well.

    imo you should not misunderestimate defense, if nothing else, get the first one Frozen armor, it's only one point.

    btw Thirteenth you can have esheild on at the same time as one of the cold armors, so you can evaluate your need for esheild all by itself
