That is why I really think immunity sets and amulets like blackthorne's and xephirian help tremendously. That's the trade off for prismatic - mit vs capping large but not too large hits.You don't want low toughness for regen. I looked up the hidden mechanic you talked about and edited it into the bottom of my OP. We have to keep it high enough not to get one shot, and to survive dot dmg. Source

The knockback pretty much sucks, and it doesn't have a can't be touched mechanic like sader's indestructable or dh's awareness.It might help for the random death or little thing you messed Still, I still feel my general idea is accurate. permalinkembedsavegive gold[–]Sharohachi 4 points5 points6 points 2 years ago(2 children)This is true but it is still noticeable as it doubles the damage required to one shot you and any hit from 35% ehp Rollback Post to Revision RollBack #20 May 23, 2012 MandyMemory MandyMemory View User Profile View Posts Send Message Sexton Join Date: 2/13/2012 Posts: 290 Member Details Force armor is still awesome,
Luckily you've got immunity to a bunch of the worst ones (Electric being the worst), but it doesn't change the fact that we're not built for tanking. I don't do a lot of solo play, though; have a pretty active guild. Otherwise things are still gonna one shot you no matter how high your HP pool, LOH and life regen.With the build I want, my only worried are arcane (jailer, arcane sentries), Magic Weapon D3 Expect the fix to come today for EU also.
The most important thing is time to take the 3rd hit, because force armor does 35% per hit, it means you need to regen 5% of your life before hit number Mobs are stunlocked for the most part and affixes usually aren't even seen. Thunderstorm ticks take about 1/4-1/3rd of my total HP off. http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/class/wizard/active/energy-armor If I didn't get a Firebird DoT crit, they would take FOREVER.
I too have very high toughness, but even while channeling Flame Ward (25% damage reduction at peak) it's tough to take hits.

But it's still preventing 15k damage per hit in that example. Odds are you'll do a bit better because you have lightning immunity, but still an issue.

There might be a point where it is better than Prismatic, but Force Armor does NOT guarantee that you can take 3 hits, or that you cannot be 1-shot. I do see the argument for both given that information. diablo-3 diablo-3-wizard share|improve this question edited May 29 '12 at 9:17 Oak 43k55219385 asked May 29 '12 at 8:17 bevacqua 53562441 add a comment| 1 Answer 1 active oldest votes up Check This Out Content is available under CC-BY-SA.
