    Taking the no recall, or sacred journey rule of Siege into account, I was just wondering if this template would be effective at both player vs. player and player vs. monster.

    120 Mace Fighting
    120 Mysticism
    120 Resisting Spells
    90 Magery
    90 Focus
    90 Tactics
    90 Evaluating Intelligence

    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. :beer:

    It'll be playable, but you'll be mana starved and your magery heals will be less efficient.

    I'd drop eval and split the 90 points into the other skills, but it depends on how you want to play.

    Run me through a fight, how do you see yourself killing something?

    Interesting concept Wulf2k, if I was using Magery basically just for gating that would make sense completely. Well, when it comes to a fight it really depends on the adversity I would be facing. Having to re-acquaint myself with the spells offered in Mysticism. If for instance I had a Rising Colossus fighting something (monster(s)) for me, and was attacked by a player though? There would be no running, hopefully I would see them coming; if not so lucky though I would probably start fighting melee and level my health out (either through leech or healing spells, does evaluating intelligence affect Magery heal strength?) then start kicking-out fast spells if I was fighting a spellcaster. Hoping that would provide an opening for a bit longer to cast spell, or a combo; this is assuming I wasn't annihilated by a stealther or plainly a more skilled player. If I have to defend myself so be it, but I don't necessarily jump people unless its more then one; they would also probably have to be trying to kill one player too. It all really depends, I definitely believe in holding my ground, and helping those in need. Along with hunting monsters for supplies.

    The Magery spells that are unaffected by eval int:
    If you're attacked by a player, use your weapon special to disarm or paralyze them. Spam poison to keep them poisoned and cast mind blast in between weapon swings. If you get in trouble, teleport to safety or invis. Heals are only affected by magery, so 120 magery for best heals. Can cast poison field and try to fight from within it. Your dex/int split would determine whether you're a dexxer that casts or a caster that dex....xes.

    With 90 eval int you will have weak offensive spells. You will not be paralyzing or cursing anybody that has resisting spells. Your "damage per mana spent" will be lower than anybody with 120 eval int.

    Mind blast is based purely on magery and casts quickly enough. You will not be killing anybody with it alone, but it can interrupt offensive spellcasters and contribute to damage while you whack them with your stick. Poison is also based purely on your magery. Keep spamming poison and whacking them with your stick, they can never heal if they're always poisoned.

    Mysticism could fill in the gaps of the above strategy depending on your available mana and playstyle.

    Wow, that's pretty in-depth man, much appreciated. Knowing that about evaluating intelligence really puts Mage/Mystic strategy into perspective. I guess I'd just hold meditation in evaluating intelligence's place until I can get those high-end Powerscrolls. That will cost, what, 200ish million?

    I'm not up on the economic situation of the top end scrolls these days, but I'd be surprised if it cost more than 100 mill to buy 120s for all of your listed skills.

    Of course, I was never really one for buying scrolls. Buy some dirt-cheap 110s and then do spawns till you get the 115s/120s yourself.
