    Wel if it was me i would skip energy shield and all the prereqs for that
    and then one point in static. Energy shield is not worth much of you
    don't pump telekinises.
    Also i would one put 5 points in cold mastery, but then put 6 ot 7
    points in warmth.
    And then i would put 0 point in energy.
    And use an upped Visceratuant with a pdia.

    I find that my CL/FO sorc began loving the one point in Energy Shield
    after giing her Holy Freeze merc an INSIGHT stick.

    one pt in energy is great. but all the +skills pump it up too much that a
    few hits will drain mana while teleporting... i've died in HC from that.
    teleported into a crowd and no mana to teleport away.
    Hell is very unforgiving...
