What to do with Storm Shield I have decided to use Storm Shield on my Lightning Sorceress. Yet I was puzzled as to what to do to deal with it's high costs in both strength to use an dex to obtain max block. Torn between the viablity of a hel run to reduce it's massive strength requirement or the common eld rune to up it's already High chance to block, I ran the numbers and the verdict is. 67 Chance to Block = 206 dex required at Character level 85 72 Chance to Block with eld = 193 Dex required at Character level 85 ____________________________________________________________ A difference of 13 stat points. Comparing that to the meager returns on a hel rune the obvious chioce is eassy. The strength required to carry SS drops to 133 from 156, making a stat savings of 23. Worth it? The only problem is you loose your socket chance for an UM rune if you are inclined to do that.
