Arctic Armour

suggestion:
New unique jewel: Gain Ice Shards to you Arctic Armour that gives you 150 additional armour for each Power Charge. Loose 1 Power charge than enemy Hit you. Can't use Molten Shell.

Analogue to Molten Shel for Ice, additional game effect, more game style variations.

Can create jewels for over charges. On set (3 jews) can be another discharge. Like rays from character to mobs for each charge. (May by like tornado shot)


P.S.: Sorry for my english :)

yeah, this changes seems really good to me for shadows, rangers, duelists. its a dex gem that had insane mana consumption, reducing it to special builds, not really even useful for what it would seem to be its prime candidates. (yes shadows are int/dex.)

New Arctic armor, directly answers evasion/ES based builds lack of Armor.
Phase acrobatics? +Arctic armor.
you don't need lightning coil anymore.

I only suppose, we need other versions. AA gives self phsy DR and fire.. we need a ES and light, and dodge and ice one too. (dodge not block.)

Burning ninja. (Cant touch this)
str, dex. fire, spell, duration.
Burn emeny for .5s when hit. 5-10% dodge. can not be frozen.(might be too much?)
25% reserved.

eh. not sure on ES version. AA is separate and stacks with armor. Dodge would be seperate and stack with evasion. Not sure what a good stacking mechanic for ES would be.
Does anyone know how the new AA goes with Cloak of Flame?
The wording on AA reads:
X% Less Fire Damage Taken When Hit

If a monster hits me 1000 physical damage, and the 20% of this damage is converted into fire by Cloak of Flame, can AA further reduce this 200 damage hit by X%?
Yes. Conversion is the first step in determining Damage Taken.
Just to clarify, is the damage reduction on Arctic Armour decided when the mob starts attacking o when the projectile actually hits you?

Also, what about mob attacks that move you (e.g. chargers) - does the full damage reduction apply or does it not apply for a short duration (in which others of the same group could hit you)?
Have to ask, is the chill when hit affected by duration modifiers? Because tooltip does not reflect that (unlike chilled ground duration)

Chill is affected by Chill Duration. Status ailments are always unaffected by Skill Duration.
I find Arctic Armour crap now. On my flameblast char I have a corrupted Rathpith +1 to socketed gems and find my empower makes like no difference going from 20 AA to 23 is %1 and it cost %8 more reserve for AA from empower now to. AA was too powerful but I think it was changed too much here is my suggestion

Lvl.....Req Lvl.Dex.....Int.....% less Phys Dmg
..............................................% less Fire Dmg
