    It's a decision between resistances and more free stats (life/mana). More life and/or more mana sounds like a better bet since you're using ES.

    I'd say Whistan's best for blocking. Spirit monarchs? As good as blocking with cracked bucklers ... :rolleyes:

    Low str req = more stat pts available to pump into vita/energy...

    If you can get the str, Stormshield is the king. I had a sorc that used CoH, rings, torch, anni +raw addeds str points to get to the 156 mark. You could also hel it I suppose.

    If your ES is gonna be 95%, you wont need high resists...since they dont factor in on ES (poison res helpful though). Id say look at viscauterant (eld) for +skill good block. Whistans is ok, but basically super block and thats it...visc is better IMHO. In fact, with 95% es, dr becomes pretty useless too! So, visc seems like a great choice to me...



    Dont max block with spirit...wayyy too much dex.

    ok ok

    So choices are....

    Whistans eld
    Visc shield eld
    mosers eld/eld?
    Gerke's Sanct?

    alright that breaks down pretty fast.

    Anybody think Sanctuary R/W in Tower works? just wondering

    Visc needs to be upped for better blocking, also sur here is an (expensive) option

    I guess sanc could work also. Maybe run some numbers with your other planned gear to compare: dex req's, str req's needed and other bunusses like resists, skills.
