    you don't need to put ANY stat points in energy. leave them on base 10.
    you get over 400 mana on clvl90 with all your +%-mana items and with some more points into warmth it is enough. this is what works good for me and was told me what would work :)

    greetz,

    Look I am expirienced a lot in pvp sorc-s so Listen what i gotta tell:

    1.You really dont need ANY points on energy dont touch energy!
    2.You should put only 1 skill point on the energy shield. Cuz with the items you want to put it will be like 7-8-9 lvl so it will absorb about 50% of dmg. If its more than 50% it will become really nasty because when you are hit it will be like a mana burn boss hits you, and in duel it really not nice not have mana to teleport or cast. So energy shield onli one skill point.
    3. You may use the first shield in the skill tree cuz it gives 35% DEF on first lvl and another %5 on every next lvl. So to get the next shield starting with 45% bonus DEF you need 3 or 4 skills so you loose 2 skill points for nothing so you can use them on FrozOrb.
    4. Its a good idea to put on some minimal WarTravelers cuz they give 10STR and 10VIT which is really important for sorc. Also i suggest making your STR 165 without charms (only with items )Cuz for me its better to have life charms and put on to STR, than to put on to vit and have str charms cuz the sorc recieves only 2 life per one vit point.

    If you want you can email me at himy@abv.bg

    Frostburns

    What is wrong with frostburns is it just because of faster cast rate you have magefists???

    Huh?? I have base energy and my mana is at 1026... I have 224 left cause I only drop some into str so I can use my gear. Next i'll drop points into dex but before I can drop any into dex i need the unbugged 1.08 valor i wanted... I don't have any yet. Once I get the valor I'll have all the gear I want for my char. Then I'll pump points into dex till I hit 75% block and dop rest into vit..
