    Will the dmg absorption ratio reduce under 100% if Telekinesis lvl reaches higher than lvl 16? For example, if Telekinesis lvl is 24, will 1 point of dmg absorbed = .5 point of mana loss?

    "...Each point in Telekinesis makes Energy Shield's damage absorption more effective. By default, for each point of damage absorbed by Energy Shield, 2 mana points are deducted - a 200% ratio. Each hard skill point in Telekinesis makes Energy Shield 6.25% more effective. For example, with 8 points in Telekinesis, 1.5 mana points are deducted for each point of damage absorbed - a 150% ratio. With 16 points in Telekinesis, one point of damage absorbed equals one point of mana loss - a 100% ratio."

    I beleive 16 hard points is needed. Any more will be a waste I think. Either way, I know that tk acts as a synergy, so only hard points will be used for es.

    Though this is mainly discussing DTM and ES, it does show some important information about the way ES works.

    more than 16 points isnt a waste...you still get the same benefit and can get as much as a .75 ratio
