ManaShield Sorc
Game Diablo 2 : LoD
Class Sorceress
Primary Attack Lightning/Chain Lightning
Can Solo Hell? Hell Yeah !!!
Creator ShadowBaam

In Short, the ManaShield Sorc is a Sorceress who boost her mana and use Energy Shield as defensive skills. As Lightning and Chain Lightning are some prerequisites to Energy Shield, it's a good idea to stay in the Lightning Spells for the Primary Attacks.


The first thing we all want to know is "Which stats should I improve ?". Well, if you have the D2 guide, do not trust it !!! The stats points should be different for every type of character so this guide is bulls**t ;) This is my stats repartition :

Stat Final Amount
Strength 76
Dexterity 25
Vitality 69
Energy 415

Stats Explanation

Strength : My goal was to use a Monarch which require 156 Strength and with my Gears and Charms, I only needed 76 Strength, so it will depend on yours. Monarch are essential for a Sorceress so try to put the least amount of Strength to hit 156 with your Gears/Charms.

Dexterity : Some people would put enough DEX to reach the Max Block and think that's a good idea. However, you're not a melee class so it's useless to reach Max Block for 2 reasons :
First, if you waste points here, you'll need to remove a lot of points in energy, so your Energy Shield will be less and less useful.
The Second reason is that you're goal isn't to be hit, so why would you need to block ?

Vitality : The only reason I've put some point here was to stay alive when I'm against some Mana Drain monsters. If you're able to play without spending any points in VIT, Put them in Energy instead :)

Energy : Do I really need to explain ? To be sure, I'll give you a little explanation... You're a Sorceress who's using Energy Shield.
