    2) Why sorcers take me 1000 damage with desintegrate end a take 200 of them?
    I don't understand this question.
    Thanks all

    The pale lavender ioun stone absorbs 50 spell levels of hostile effects. Hit him with high level rapid fire spells to drain it.

    Disintegrate deals terrible damage on a successful save.

    Spell Absorbtion. this will absorb a certain amount of incoming spells if a person is wearing the item
    for example:
    http://compendium.ddo.com/wiki/Item:...he_Worldshaper

    this item has 5 charges of spell absorbtion, there for will absorb 5 spells

    EDIT: a good way to get past these is 'meteor swarm'

    Thanks all
    the 'force' enhancement line affects disintegrate damage, also potency. these will raise the damage considerably.
    Also he may have saved vs your disintegrate

    Its max charge is 50.

    if you were casting death spells could've been deathward/block but that's a symbol over his/her head, if you casted magic missle then it could've been a nightshield clickie.

    1- Depends on what do you mean by purple shield and magic damage, if you try to hit someone with magic missile /chain missile and he has nightshield/shield spell (the barb could have used a clicky) that animation will keep appearing and you wont do any damage. If it was kinda like a blue thing near his feet while you casted something with a spell penetration check he could have have a Spell Resistance item or divine buff.
    Also he could be using a mantle / pale ioun stone or the Battered Phiarlan Shield, which we can't know based on your description. If its a Pale ioun stone he will have something floating around his head, Phiarlan shield has an unique look and works for enchantment spells only, and mantle you cant see but it only has 5 charges, so starting off with a magic missile will deplete it.


    2- You are not using your char potential to the maximum. thats why
    If you have to ask, i can probaly assume you don't have an eardweller (+100% dmg to all spells for 1 minute, 3 charges), also a major lore will increase your crit chance and crit dmg... or you can use arcane lore items, to give all spells +crit chance/dmg, such as Greenblade from ADQ or ToD set.
    So the maximum dmg on spells would be: Eardweller + Enhacement line for the spell you casting and Major lore for that type + Maximize feat + Empower feat + Sorc Capstone
    Also, in some cases where the dmg of the spell is not capped by your level, you can use Epic Abishai set to increase your caster lvl, which will also be stronger... just adding this information since we are talking about dmg =P

    If you are using your char to the maximum, which I doubt since you are making those questions, he could have also have saved on your disintegration since it has a fortitude save, and you failed on his.

    Just to further clarify, if someone has an ioun stone it will appear as if a tiny comet is orbiting their head. Best spell to drain the 50 charges of that would be meteor swarm, ice storm, or any spell that has multiple attacks in it.

    It's very rare. Don't try to farm it.

    There are three other sources of magic-absorption.

    Mantle of the Worldshaper, from the Ruins of Threnal Chain. It will absorb 5 spells before depleting. Recharges 1/day.

    Epic Philarian Mirror Cloak. Same as above.

    Scarab of Spell Absorption. Don't use this in PvP, they're rare and better saved for things like eChrono Abishais.

    It is also important to remember a "day" isn't really a day, but a rest. (use of a rest shrine)... In a tavern, "a day" is about what 60 sec? so five minutes, what it would take to heal most barbarians to full health, the stone could recharge fully...
    (Say): Haywire says, '"Hey, I don't come into yer home and play with things."'
