    I use my necro/mage/weaver a lot, he's my go to character if i'm heading to a guild hunt or event or group peerless etc. Recently though i've seen more and more mysticism use, I can hardly walk through Abyss without stumbling over RCs.

    I have yet to use it on any template, but if I wanted to is it worth dropping spellweaving or something for it? Is RC that good? Is it a lot stronger than EV? EVs I rarely use much anymore except for weak things because they either just don't do enough damage or they get auto-dispelled.

    I can't see giving up the damage of magery just for a better summon but maybe i'm missing something.

    Well a necro mage weaver is pretty good. Probably better at spawning, but for tanking with a mage other than mage/tamer, a Mage/Mystic/Weaver is pretty good. I find it a good balanced char. You can do both PvP and PvM effectively. I like the template.

    120 Magery
    120 Eval
    120 Myst
    120 Focus
    120 Resist
    120 Spellweaving

    That's what I am working on. I Still need to work on the Myst and the weaving.

    No Resist if your not gonna PvP. And even if you do, with the million ways to get everything off you anyway, whats the point? Trapped boxes, apples, pots, ect.

    My template-

    120 Magery (done)
    120 Eval (110 atm, just ate a 120 scroll last night)
    120 Med (done)
    120 Mysticism (done)
    120 Focus (100, 120 with crystalline ring, so done ;))
    120 Spellweaving (only at 110.2 atm but working on it lol)
    20 points left over, not sure what to use them for lol.
    This is on a Gargoyle.

    I can do lots of things by myself with this template. I do all renowneds, Medusa solo, Doom solo, group peerless, etc. Makes a good support character too with cleansing winds, gift of renewal, rezzing, ect.

    Plus I have 120 Imbuing on a stone from before the big change so I can swap that in for making suits and whatnot.

    I have been using this template since SA came out (minus Focus for Imbuing until the change), and I have loved every minute of it :D.

    I would love to hear how you solo Doom and Medusa with that template. :O

    Not being sarcastic either I want to know.

    I'm not a big fan of spawning I mainly just use necro for the unlimited mana in wraith form in group peerless and doom but I would sacrifice that in a heartbeat to be able to solo them instead.

    RC seems to get dispelled less. plus it does a sh*tload more dmg

    also Mysticism has a higher level AOE spell than Meteor swarm, theoretically you should do more damage with it. Nether winds I think?

    I don't know how it stacks up to the SW AOE that everyone seems to love.

    Why do so many Mysticism templates use Magery instead of Necromancy? Is Magery that much better than Necromancy for PvM and PvP?

    I have this same template and it is very powerful! I have not tried to solo doom or medusa but I could see where it could be done ! If i have time this weekend I will give it a try and see what happens !

    I run a little lower magery and weave so that I could fit resist spells on but basically the same set up!

    Yes. Magery is a baseline skill, necro is a support skill.

    Random Note : RC is completely insane.. In PvM i hardly ever use Myst unless I'm fighting a Low Cold Resistance Monster, However, I use RC 100% Of the time.

    It can Easily Tank Medussa, and ups your Damage very nicely..

    Example : On a Discoed Navery I do 120 Per Fireball (SDI / Slayer Setup)

    So I'm doing 120 x X pretty much.. However you throw in The Rising.. and it Jumps..

    RC : 60 Per Hit *Discoed* Along with 7-35 Damage Casts, and *I Believe* 100+ Damage Armor Ignores.

    RC is By Far the best summon in the game, and If you are Spell weaving, you can Arcane Emp for Higher Chance to Resist Dispell on those Heavy Magic monsters.

    My Temp is..

    120 Mage
    120 Eval
    120 Myst
    120 Focus
    100 Inscribe
    25 Spellweaving (Tree Form)
    115 Med

    Does Mysticism have a comparable AoE spell to wither? That's a key component of my spawning tactics. I'd have to figure out a new way to get through levels 1 & 2 of a spawn. After that, however, myst sounds superior to a pure necro-mage. I might try this if there is an AoE equivalent to wither.

    ^it has hail storm, which is better than meteor swarm. but which is different from wither. wither is a PBAOE (Point Blank AOE which goes off in a circle around you), hail storm is a targeted AOE. you can always use the PBAOE in weaving.

    if you are human, it only takes JOAT to hold wraith form. therefore, have some rings/talisman/+necro skill items to cast and get into wraith, and then go back to regular equipment.

    If you target yourself with hailstorm will it hurt you? Or will it create a PBAOE effect around you like wither?

    I like the idea of this, lots :)
    But, how to play it? I mean, more, what spells are usually cast. Just use RC, and them blast it away with Flamstrikes and Ebolts?

    Will not hurt you. Creates an aoe effect around you like wither.

    I play a Defense Mage (no eval)/Mystic/SW that can become a Stealther/Stealer with 5 items carried in pack.

    120 Mystic
    120 Focus
    115 Magery (prob scroll to 120 someday)
    0 Eval (mystic offense relies on Focus & Sdi & SW offense on SDI alone)
    110 SW
    50 Med - Locked (PS115 eaten but get MR from suit and focus as well)
    100 Hide
    60 Steal (120 w/imbued jewels, Shadow Dancer,Burg Bandana)
    30 Stealth (100 w/items above and Robe of Silence +10)

    I had Eval 110 originally and minimal necro& 100 ss for Wraith form and unlimited mana. But SA has so many stealables spawning in play areas, that I added the hide/steal/stealth instead - and did not feel like buying another 120 Steal for some other char.

    I use the Stealth to get keys or to get to destination, then change into Imbued mage suit for combat. I always try to Buff my RC's before hand with the SW spell but seldom use any other mystic spells than nether cyclone.

    Cyclone and RC alone usually ensures an arti drop at Medusa, Stygian or slasher. a Focus 6 WoD is usually gives me that extra edge at the end (other than Slasher).

    I just made a mystic/bushido/ninja dexer. It's so overpowered offensively it is stupid. If my nerve/DS connects it is a guaranteed kill, and this is against people with 140 HP and either EP with heal pots or a healing stone.

    Spell Plague needs to be nerfed.. but even with the proposed changes I feel like it will still do the job.

    Mine is just a mystic/bushido dexer. I couldn't figure out a way to put ninjitsu on it and still be effective.

    I haven't taken the character out to play yet (still training), but considering encounters I've had with other people with similar templates, it looks promising.

    its a super lynk secret.
    however im experimenting on paper and its possible.
    requires testing in game to find the most effective combos however.

    I have a garg discord mystic and I like the template alot. It's 120 music/disco/eval/myst, GM magery/focus bumped to 120 with crystaline ring, and the rest of the points in med. Suit has 40 lmc and around 18-19 MR, so mana isn't a big problem.
