So you've got exactly 100 poitns left to pump some extra damage into your temp. Scribe is going to net you a base incrase to the damage of every spell you cast. Also gives you the resist spell bumps, not that one should require it, but its nice to have. 60 Necro/40 SS is going to give you the ability to pump up your spells, allbeit manually, to a slightly greater effect - though the cool spells one gains this route are resistable. I suppose tis also fair to say that depending on how much time and money one wants to spend to finish a template, the second option is much easier to accomplish, though gming scribe is by no means hard. So in short, what is the general preference or oppinion ? Which course woudl you choose to make your mage that much more pvpable?
