    Default What's better 2nd/3rd soul duo Elm/AM, EL/Arc, AM/Arch

    thinking of putting 21 pts in 2 of these for a pvp build, DEF is the key for this trial.

    Elem at 12 gives 5%+crit , Stone armor, Ice shield, exposure, and 10% reduct in dmg

    Stone armor, 10% reduct, & Ice shield are what I'm asking about

    Archmage at 10 we have -15% crit, and 5% less dmg

    Archon at 3-4 we have +Armor (same as Stone armor)and earth shield, +endurance.
    the archon shield buff stacks with Stone armor for a ~+1200 armor boost


    Maybe I'll try an Arch/El/archon.....but no heals really...but if you were trying to minimize dmg...which is a better duo if you just picked 2 as complements to your primary?

    Are the pure stat reductions of Archmage better or worse than ~1200+ armor boost with 2 insta shields and endurance/dmg boosts

    dunno how to crunch the numbers

    this is the min DEF path I would go for each...16 to 21 depending on combo

    which combo..the 16pt,17pt, or 21pt duo would reduce my dmg taken the most?

    Default just thinking as I type

    if I drop Elem to 10 pts and take away 1 from the 10% dmg reduct to 8%...then I can go 51 Pyro with a +70% to armor ground of strength

    (2500 armor +1200 from Stone & ashen) x 1.70= ~5000-6000 armor on a mage(depending if Ground effects armor boosts), with 2 shields that negate ~1600 dmg if cast consecutively.....maybe?

    or 51 chloro...armored healer?


    anyone try these?
