    Ok so I was thinking of a build like this, can't afford 120 PS right now but wil upgrade as I can..

    115 Mage
    115 Eval
    120 Resist
    120 Med
    100 Scibe

    Now the last 145 on my 715 cap is my question. I want a defenseive play style so orginally I was thinking 120 wrestle and the rest in Spellweaving for low level spells. But recently I have been told wrestle is not all that great and I should try focus/anatomy/poison instead. Any comments on going with one of the other 3 options or should I stick with my plan to use wrestle?

    For defense, wrestling is great. Or more specifically, disarm is great.

    For better defense, drop inscription for Parry as well. Not getting hit is pretty good as well.

    Or carry a one handed spell channeling mage weapon with a spell effect, add in +magery jewelery, then add in parry. That would be less effective against poisoners, but not bad against other people.

    For offense, find a way to get necromany and spirit speak into the template.

    Focus is easily replaced by a good suit. Wrestling > anatomy unless you're tight for points on account of the disarm and paralyze special moves. Poisoning is too easily countered by potions, but still surprisingly effective.

    There are plenty of options. Which one you choose depends on what you want to accomplish.

    Do you need the tactic points to accomplish disarm?
