First, here's my current skills: 120 Mystic (111.3 real) 111.1 focus (101.1 real) 100 spellweaving 72.5 meditation 120 music 120 provoke 90.6 peacekeeping 4.5 archery I've jumped around a lot on my skills, but I'm liking this current one to a point. I plan on dropping peacekeeping and archery to replace it with something else, but I still don't have a strong handle on this template, yet. It's great and kills things pretty quickly, but I got into spellweaving believing I could use ethereal voyage anytime (Man was I mistaken). This template is more of a "control the field" template, but there'll be times where there's a paragon on my ass, or there isn't another enemy to provoke and they can dispel my colossus. I dunno if I should drop provoke and music (which I would really hate but understand), because colossus pretty much does everything for me. Problem is the monsters will still go after me, even with the colossus wailing on them. That, and the colossus cast time is still pretty slow (yes I have max cast speed), so that leaves a window where I'm completely vulnerable. I was thinking I wanted to go necromancer, or was thinking magery for invisibility mostly. Problem is I need either spirit speak or eval intel for whichever I choose, and the extra skill points (peacekeeping + archery) doesn't even cover a GM of a single skill (which means I might have to drop meditation a bit which is fine). I need something that will get the heat off me in the immediate moment that I need it. I'm supposed to be out of the danger with this build, and that can't happen with a paragon on me or something dispelling my colossus and nothing to provoke it to that can take it down. *EDIT* Alright, I dropped archery and peacekeeping, and a little bit of meditation and GM'd hiding. It will work to cast ethereal voyage if you can cast it before you enter combat. It's worked about 1/6th of the times I've tried so far. Still very nice skill to allow me to get a handle on the situation. I haven't tried it against paragons and fast creatures, so not sure if I can get away or not, yet.
