    Hi, I'm making a mage tank from my mage necro and I have some questions

    what skills should I be using? this is for pvp btw

    these are set:
    magery
    eval int
    meditation
    fencing

    but these im not sure:
    tactics?
    parry?
    resist spells?


    and how much points on each skill i have no clue either



    also how would my stat distribution be like? and how much dex would I need if I took parry



    what gear should I be using specifically? whats a good weapon choice for mage tank? like what properties on a war fork should i look for.. what what armor would I use



    lots of questions :(

    Take Chivalry, Bushido or both...

    If you are going to use special moves, take tactics - otherwise you'd be better off with no weapon skill at all and using a mage weapon.

    For gear, suggest Stormgrip (tokuno major)- that will give you 25% DI, 8 points into Int (allowing you to move points into Dex or Str and keep the same Int, or just raise your Int some). If you take parry, the Ancient Samurai Do Tokuno minor will give you decent resists and +10 to Parry (The Rune Beetle Carapace major sucks, for resists, but the mana properties on it will help both the mage and warrior side of your character - so, your call on tunic). All these I suggest are medable.
