    Hi all,

    Here's my situation. I want to take my Bard/Mage and kill Succubus's to get Knight of Honor. Here's what she's taking with her:

    120 Magery
    115 Eval
    115 Meditate
    120 Peace
    115 Music
    120 Discord
    100 Hiding

    She just completed "Follower" of Honor by Peace/Discord/EV's. I've done Knight on a Bushido/Swordsman on another account, so I've been able to compare "gains" between the 2 methods. I can see that continuing her using EV's will take a long time to get to Knight (last night she killed probably 35 Suc's and didn't gain a single dot in this last phase).

    Here's what I'm thinking:

    I'll forego using EV's and kill her with direct spells (thinking Poison/MindBlast). What I'm wondering is whether or not she is "penalized" in Honor gains if she continues to use Peace/Discord?

    I've gathered together a pretty nice suit/jewels so she'll have:
    85% SDI
    70ish resists (75 Physical, 70 Energy at least)
    7 MR
    8 MI
    100% LRC
    8 DCI
    1 FC/ 4 FCR
    18% LMC

    Also, I'd appreciate any suggestions/feedback any of you might have...
    :)

    Resist is nice to have against magic using critters; your suit could use some more LMC, MI and MR.

    I used a pure-mage (No bard-stuff) with resist spells. All 70's suit, max LMC and 65%DCI. With a Demon-slayer spellbook, it was not too difficult. For Direct damage spells, Energy Bolt seemed to work best for me.

    Thx Taz... I just added a Demon Slayer spellbook to her "arsenal"... Interesting re. EBolt, since she shows (monster database) as having slightly higher resist to Energy than Cold... But I'll certainly check that when I take her out.

    There just really aren't all that many good cold-damage spells in the mage-book. Mind-blast has (or at least used to have) a reduction in damage against things with high intelligence so I rarely use it - or even think to use it.

    Good Luck!
