but this thread is about something other. a major problem in my opinion, armors. we have 3 armors, only 1 can be active.
99% of all wiz choose energy armor - prismatic for high lvl plays, because its the best one for EHP stats. its a must in endgame in order to survive.
and i think this kind of limits our freedom with armors. i rly would like to play with frost armor aura, or shocking aspect, or pinpoint barrier, for tal set, EE passive or whatever. but than i lose so much toughness, its just not a good trad off.
we need a solution for this problem. i dont have a good one.. i mean yes, i have one, but in order for it to work, all 3 armors need to be reworked entirely, this would take too much time for 2.1
i have a simple idea, maybe OP or not good at all. maybe someone of you guys has a better idea, a solution thats easy to implement so it could make it into 2.1
my idea is to merge the prismatic rune of energyarmor with blur. so blur gives 17% dmg reduce and 25% all res.
and than give all 3 armors a 35% armor increase as baseline, remove the -energy from energyarmor and 12% melee dmg reduction from frost armor and add AP REG or APOC to energy armor.
this way base armors (no runes) would be like this:
frost armor: 35% armor, chills/freezes enemies that hit you
lightning armor: 35% armor, shocks neaby enemies
energy armor: 35% armor, 2 apreg / 4apoc (random numbers)
the new prismatic rune of energy armor: your elemtal attacks have a chance to proc other elements. so when you attack with a firespell, you have chance that this firespell also deals colddmg, so its easier to proc EE or tal rasha meteors, this is a rune for multi ele builds.
and in order to prevent ice armor - crystalize (20% armor when an enemie hits you) to become the new "energy armor prismatic must have", change crystalize to:
when you freeze an enemie, regenerate some AP.
your frost attacks have a chance to freeze enemies or increase the freeze duration of enemies who are already frozen
or are you happy to go for a no brainer skill, prismatic all the way and ignore everything else?
