Alright, I have spent about two weeks researching, asking opinions, and asking my wife her thoughts, and here is what I got for my PvM Pure Mage Template: Magery- 120 (duh!) Eval. Intel.- 120 (again, duh!) Meditation- 120 (most use this) Inscription- 100 (dmg bonus & make some gold) Focus- 120 (wanna massive mana regen) and the last skill is... I'm not sure, I have narrowed it down to three. Spell Weaving, this is the one I think would be the coolest! Resist Spells, many people seem to put a lot of stock in this skill, others say it isn't important, especially in PvM. So, I'm not sure about whether I might <u>need</u> it. The third is Wrestling, again some say it is important for a mage's defense, others say it's barely an option. My point is, I like the idea of adding Spell Weaving, but if Resist Spells, or Wrestling are really important to the survivability of a PvM Pure Mage, then perhaps I should take one of them. Ultimately, the test shard will be helpful in figuring this out, but if anyone could give me there opinion, and maybe tell me a place on the test shard to go test that weak link would be great. Thank you all for all of your help! The UO community ROCKS!
