Skill Design[edit]

This seems like a tremendously powerful passive, if the increase per skill point remains constant, as it's presumed.

However, if the base armor or base resistance is low, then the actual skill don't do very much, so it's one of the cases where a player needs too combine both gear and skills for the best result. With good enough armor gear, it's not impossible this skill can create melee Wizards with the use of Damage Resistance, Stone Skin, Weapon Mastery and Spectral Blades.
