    My friend said that the necro ruind cast pvp. And that pvp mage needs necro is that true why? or is he wrong. His archer mage no longer worked cause he didnt have room cause he needed necro and spirit speak for his pvp build.

    There are still some good mages out there but if all things are equal a necro usually beats a mage.
     
  3. I run a nox mage, occasional scribe mage depending on which skills I switch out. The meta currently is heavily focused on necromancy for mages or just archers. It is difficult to play only mage-based characters now, sure.... and a mage will often struggle against characters with necro unless they're running chiv but there's still room for skillful mages in the field imo.
     
  4. I disagree. Yes a necro has the advantage for a few things, but it is how you play your template that makes a win or lose result.

    If you get strangled. Your first instinct is to either run or remove curse, eat an apple whatever. Regardless necromages expect you to run after a strangle that gives them time to cast a combo. There are other options. You can get off heals,cures, weaken, magic arrow,fireball,harm, poison between ticks not to mention your specials if you have any will always go off strangled or not. I go into dueling mode when strangled. 90% of the time I wouldn't be able to outrun them for one reason or the other.

    A mage is still a very capable template and if that is where your interest is, then stick with it. Necro doesn't beat mage so don't feel the pressure to follow the crowd - good tactics and timing win. Get to know some dominant pure mages on your shard and see if they will practice with you and teach you some tricks.

    then go see if those so called dominant "pure mages" can dominate the dominant Necro Mages..... I don't know any pure mage on ATL who can beat my Necro mage.

    If you could only bless one thing what it would be for a necro mage?
     
  8. necro mage > pure mage, every single time. With that said, I play a scribe/wrestle, heh.

    Nexed and Blackmage are right on, mabye just mabye if the necro you are fighting does not have a mage- weapon and is not chugging you can take him out. I used to play a nox mage a month ago before going scribe and would take out necromages that did not chug not too bad. If a necro mage chugs imo its the most powerfull temp in the game.

    the latest necro mage temp always uses a mage wep... there just idiotic or not really a good pvper if they attempt to use a staff or something....

    dci glasses
    cyrstalline
    aof
    inquis
    orny
    crimson
    quiver of infinity

    Start with those peices then find yourself a -20 -23 mage wep sc no pen DCI and anything else is a plus... then basically what u need is to find 3 peices that add up to 25 lrc about 12 lmc and as much MR as possible with resist mostly in fire and poison with a lil phys and your all set.
     
  11. 25 lrc would give you 85 lrc with that setup

    If I know I'm going to fight a dexxer 1 vs 1, I put wrestling on my necro. No contest.

    i have a mate i use to visit from time to time and we play together.. he is a pure scribe-mage pvp'er and i never seen him loose may it be a dexxer or a necro/mage.. not in 1v1 atleast..

    Then however he has played same char since -98 and has a extremly good suit.. but today i find many people seems to have extreme suits [​IMG]

    Agree, without elaboration.

    The best pvpers in the game are still magers.

    Save your skills for the pure mage template, set your macros right, and move your character right in the game. Choose your targets, don't let them choose you. Also, make sure you puter is up and running at over 2.66 Ghz, 3 GB's RAM, and a decent video card like an 8800 GT or such. Then watch how the world changes, and the flowers bloom over the dead.
