Actually, Cold/Fireshield can increase the length of stone duration and in general reduced mob damage to you per round by about 18 hp when last I zoned with my lvl 50. It also had the benefit of doing slightly increased damage to the mob when it hit you....If you were coldshielded and the mob was fi...

I played it a long time ago with a friend. Your best bet is to make a summoning druid, all the pets take up a ton of the big hits. Also, the side quests and eventually killing the dragons lead to sweet gear that you can re-eq chars with later. Lastly, before doing TOB expansion, do the Gaax demi lic...

Kick has lots of uses and if you get the skill up into the 90s, it gets you a fair number of critical kicks, which do ok extra damage.

The rate of critical kicks would be nice if it was increased with skill level some more though.
