Best D2R 2.6 Ladder 3 Nova Sorceress Build Skills 

Max static field, max nova, max lightning mastery, max telekinesis, max warmth, and put the rest of the point to energy shield. The reason why we don’t max out energy shield is because the resistance are all max, if you max energy shield, the highest absorption you can get is 95% and that’s what most people do, they don’t max out lightning, fire and cold, they just max poison because they already have 95% absorbed. In a situation when you are fighting a lot of souls, you take too much damage at once, and your mana pool just deplete. If your resistance are very low or even negative, your energy shield’s gone, you are going to die straight away.
