    I'm gathering information for a new build. I've got a 120 Mysticism and Focus scroll sitting in my house and I don't know which character to use it on. I have a thrower, that I usually run in wraith form and a sampire. So which one do I build into a mystic dexer. Should I train up maces or fencing to make him most effective? I currently run throwing and swords respectively. Also what should the final build be, I'll continue my search for information, but I hear two of these stone dexers can solo things like corgul, slasher, etc...

    Throwing seems to work best for this as you can stand back and cast. It also has insane damage output.

    I have a mystic thrower.
    It's difficult (impossible) to get 3 FC + 6 FCR + 50 EP + 45 HCI + 45 DCI + 100 DI + 45 SSI. (You need 3 FC to have 2 FC with Enchant on)
    As a result he is not a good caster (low mana, low MR, low SDI) and not a good dexter (low DCI, low HML).

    When I use RC I can't use AI because I must save mana for MS (mass sleep) + RC combo.
    I must always check is Enchant on and recast it when it wears off (you can't prolongate Enchant). Often I cast some spell and auto-unequip my weapon giving to monsters incredible chance to hit.
    I don't use Stone Form because it makes me too slow.
    I needn't to heal when I'm not under attack and can't use CW (healing) when I'm under attack because it's too slow spell. I can't use Healing Stone two times in a row so most of time I use Chivalry to heal myself. It's also not as fast as it could be with 4/6 (but you can't have 4 FC when you've got 70+ Mysticism).

    So most of time I don't use mysticism. This means my char has just 4 skills that I use.
    I haven't enough HML to chain AI. (I haven't mana reduction)
    I haven't Bushido so I can't do much damage when I haven't slayer.

    With a mystic thrower it's easy to kill not so hard monsters even with bad equipment... but even with high-end equipment you can't kill hard monsters (or crowd of monsters). So it's a good char for a new player... but not a powerful char.

    So if you want a thrower then get Bushido and EP and may be Healing. Max out HCI/DI/DCI/Stamina.

    If you want a mystic dexter then make a macer with 100 HML and 100 HLL. Use Stone Form, Healing Stone, Potions and Healing skill to heal. Get SSI, EP, DI, HCI, DCI from jewels and don't worry about FC/FCR.
