    This was my second char I made in 1998 and I think it may be possible to do mare damage with your help and possibly get a drop at the EM events :-O

    Magery=120
    Eval Int=120
    Resist = 120
    Meditation=120
    Hiding= 100
    Poison=80
    focus- 60

    I was thinking dropping poison and focus for Mysticism so I can cast RC's but not sure it is an upgrade from a pair of EV's, strictly PVM speaking is that an upgrade ?

    Thanks

    RCs deal far more damage, have far more HP and better resists.
    It is also faster to cast one RC than two EV's.

    But for it to work at full potential, you need 120 focus.
    I'd drop resist for it, or would drop hiding and poison. You don't need hiding when you can cast invisibility.

    So then this would be the upgraded PVM template ?

    Magery=120
    Eval Int=120
    Resist = 120
    Meditation=120
    Myst=120
    Focus = 120

    Thanks

    Yes, that would be it.
    If you want more bang for your buck, replace 120 resist with 120 spellweaving to be able to cast arcane empowerment.

    120 med and 120 focus will give you some pretty nice mana regen, but you should try to get at least 22~25 MR on your suit.

    If you go with studded and focus only, carry wraith form scrolls if your character is human.
    You leech a good amount of mana with joat spirit speak, enough SDI and a slayer book to keep your mana high enough to keep casting RCs.
