Thread: [Storm] Energy Shield

    [Storm] Energy Shield

    This ability looks similar to Earth's Heat Shield. Same weaknesses (long cooldown, disappears totally when single-hit by some random staff attack). Could it be adjusted like HSh? Make it permanent aura, or whatever?

    The skill is quite balanced. Heatshield provides fire damage absorption and 15% Damage Resistance. Energy Shield Provides Lightning AND Cold damage resistance and the synergy provides a pretty nice reflection bonus. Obviously, it's not as good as heat shield, but making it the same would be kinda lame.

    And it doesn't disappear from random staff attacks when you max it, heh. something like 1000 damage absorption is pretty cool.

    Maybe. But waiting for its cooldown is pain. >_<

    Aye... ESh requires significantly more points to be invested for full benefit than HSh. So they aren't totally balanced, I suppose, heh. :}

    They do different things, one protects from cold and lightning. TWO damage sources. The other protects from physical and fire, also, TWO damage sources. The cooldown is annoying, but it's tolerable.

    I think what needs to be balanced is Heat Shield, not energy shield. 15% Damage resistance at level one is a bit much. It should be scalable.
