    I have 3 templates for PvM having a hard time deciding. Which do you think is best or Well rounded for PvM:

    Template 1:
    110 Tame
    110 Lore
    100 Vet
    100 Mage
    100 Eval
    100 Med
    100 Spellweaving

    Template 2:
    110 Tame
    110 Lore
    100 Vet
    100 Necro
    100 Spirt
    100 Med
    100 Mage

    Template 3:
    110 Tame
    110 Lore
    100 Vet
    100 Necro
    100 Spirit
    100 Magery
    100 Spellweaving

    number 2 for sure. necro just has too much versatility to skip over, and there are times when med is a must. semidar is a good example; i have gm med, 14 mr on my suit, and 13/10 seconds regen in lich form, and i need every bit of it when i duo her with a friend. i can heal my dragon through her damage without retreating or resetting the fight. gift of renewal is overrated :p

    i would tweak that template a little, though. this is what i'm running:

    110 taming
    110 lore
    90 vet
    100 necro (95 base)
    120 spirit speak (110 base)
    110 magery (105 base)
    100 med

    Six in template 1, a half dozen in template 2.

    Advantages for template 1:
    Word of Death
    Gift of renewal

    Advantages for template 2:
    Lich form
    Wraith form
    Wither
    Necro-curses

    I ran template 1 (a variant of, I had more magery) for a while, and I loved it.

    Well I'd rule out the third template, as you've got 3 casting skills and no med ;) Spellweaving sucks up mana like nobody's business, so I think the third is going to be tricky for that reason :)

    I'd probably choose 1 over 2 because if you get a high enough focus, spellweaving is great. You also don't have the negative karma issues a necro has with certain spawns. That said necro tamers are great fun, so maybe you should build one of each :D
