Pvp mage

    Well, it's sad for me to admit but I feel that my poor ole mage has become obsolete in pvp.

    I have been working on a necro mage and I've seen the power of a necro mage weaver. I just think it's a bit sad that I spend all this time and gold building a mage and having him be almost useless in pvp. They talk about "balancing" templates but when one of the oldest templates is "balanced" into the nursing home something is wrong.

    i pvp with a 5x 120 scribe mage most of the time... how isn't it effective. wrestling is much better than a mage weapon imo.

    no template stops people from running off screen when or before your second spell lands. :( But I have to agree with cetric I ran a mage wep necro for a while and found myself just getting chain disarmed which opens you up for moving shot spam or just conc blow goodness.

    This is all related to group pvp. Im not sure what flavor you are seeking.

    Magery without necro is meh.. unless you have inscription, in which case you could consider using Protection, and stacking resist back up to 120 (Or just use potions, etc). And stacking physical resist. Reactive Armor and/or Magic Reflection could help restoring your resists.

    And if you don't use protection with inscription, you will get more damage from having necro/SS than the 10% inscribe bonus.

    Play around with mind blast. Use lower level spells like fireball. (Especially if the the victim is cursed)

    Could someone explain 5x legendary mage to me?:dunce:

    Obviously magery and eval... but what else? Med, eval, wrestle? *confused*

    If that is it, mine is a tweaked one with parry and works VERY well in PvP(well, at least I don't die in five seconds to dexers)

    My guess is standard wrest-scribe-mage
    120 magery
    120 eval
    120 med
    120 resist
    120 Wrestling
    100 scribe

    The standard wrest-scribe-mage is still viable in pvp, just dont stand in the front-line. And ya parry-mages does extremly well (survival based, not kill based)

    Ok my problem is;

    1) I can't beat dexxers. Since they changed disarm I have a very difficult time with dexxers. I could hold my own before the change not it isn't even close.

    2) Necros... please... is there any way for a mage to beat a necro with out the necro losing con! (Just kidding but seriously I never had a chance against a living necro)

    Lastly I have been away fro a while but before I left I held my own with a mage now I can't. I'm frustrated and I've even been going over to the dark side! I'm building a necro mage. (If you can't beat em... ) But I'd rather BEAT EM! :wall:

    Dexers are a tough breed especially on a mage where they can just disrupt your spells.

    As I mentioned, 120 parry, 120 wrestle, and super high DCI has been my solution to dexxers. I can't kill them but 1v1, they can't kill me and even 3+v1 they take a long time:thumbsup:

    Necro's have three things going for them but those can be defeated:
    1. corpse skin - simply run a suit with 15+ extra fire resist on it.
    2. strangle - apples? Talisman? (I believe both take this off)
    3. pain spike - red pots:thumbsup:

    The one you will have a problem is evil omen. That is a pain to get around when they run up with it precast then drop a flamestrike on you:cursing:

    Protection in PvP = Major Fail. The target should ALWAYS be cursed. Lower circle spells like fireball ain't gonna kill a dexer running around with 150hp, eating apples and chugging pots. Especially with protection on.
