    HELP!!!

    What has changed in the last few years? What is a viable pvp template? Is it still worth being an elf? What are the common templates for here and on prodo servers?

    Do I have any friends out there that might wanna send me a message or some vent info?


    Will any of these questions be answered? Tune in to find out!

    I believe a mage/myst is very viable but I´ll let the more knowledgable ones give better details...

    Well keep the info coming! Any new guides or sources? Seems everything is out of date as usual.

    The biggest change to Magery since you've been gone is that they turned Magic Reflect back on.

    Inscription and Resist Spells work together to build you a Reflection pool, an amount of shielding if you will that shows as a percentage on your buff/debuff tag. Take too much damage and the shielding is down, with a cool down to cast magic reflect again.

    Another noteworthy change is geared towards pure classes, and not hybrids. A pure mage, in this case, will get a huge bonus to SDI. Add any other magics to the template ( Necro, Chiv, SW, Myst, etc... above 40 skill I believe ) and you do not receive the bonus. The bonus along with SDI gear allows you to kill effectively with explo/flamestrike combo.

    Nox Focus Mage (Gimp Template):
    120 Magery
    120 Eval
    120 Resist
    120 Swords/Fencing
    100 Inscribe
    80 Poison
    60 Med

    Myst Mage (Overall Best Field Temp IMO):
    120 Magery
    120 Eval
    120 Resist
    120 Myst
    100 Focus *120 w/Crystalline Ring*
    100 Inscribe
    40 Med

    Hybrid Myst Mage (Gimp Field-1v1):
    I use a dagger with: -20 Mage, SCNP, 15 HCI, DI
    120 Magery
    120 Eval
    120 Resist
    110 Myst *Use Fey Book to 120 & cast spell trigger/heal stone*
    100 Focus *120 w/Crystalline Ring*
    70 Fencing/Swords
    80 Poison

    Anti-Dexer Field Template!!!:
    120 Magery
    120 Eval
    120 Resist
    120 Wrestling
    120 Parry
    120 Med/100 Inscribe

    With the new weapons with splintering and the LP dexers, it can be rough and this last template has proven to be equally powerful as the others in the field with the new "focused" aka SDI increase.

    Whats so good about this mystic stuff?

    I was thinking something like

    120 mage
    120 eval
    100 med
    100 poison
    100 inscription
    120 resist
    60 anatomy

    or something of that nature...

    inscribe with new spec stuff seems good. Poison seems really good. Maybe i'm trying to do too much and maybe I need more defence. Seems like the power level has climbed quite a bit.

    GM Poison gives what, a 10% chance to LP?

    70 Fencing/Swords gives you the ability to use Infectious Strike and I personally prefer the weapons poison over mage casting.

    Just my opinion. I also run 45 HCI on said template for this reason.
