    Hello guys, this is my first post, but I've been lurking again for a month now. I reinstated mt accounts about a month ago after 8 yrs away from game. I played from launch till early 2002, then left the game until a few weeks ago. Wow...things have changed. I currently have a mage char that i had reworked some but i believe he still needs help. He is a PvM char exclusively. Here is his particulars.

    Str 100
    Dex 10
    Int 120

    Magery 100
    Wrestling 100
    Resist 100
    Med 100
    Eval 100
    Parry 70
    Inscrip 78

    He has some skills turned down that arent important. So I am looking for suggestions. Like i said this will be a PvM char only. I can get powerscrolls but have yet to do so. Thanks in advance for any help. And btw I play on Atlantic

    Unless you're going to raise your dex a ton, dump parry. That's 70 wasted pts. You need 80 dex for parry to work.

    And you should consider you might be cursed, so you should actually have around 85 dex.

    You can pump your mana pool up through int items, mana increase items, and by going elf.

    Are you using books, is that why you have wrestle? Or do you actually use stun punch, disarm in PVM?

    You can go defensive wrestle by using anat+eval..

    Or go with a 1-handed, 15 DCI -20 Mage weapon and have +20 magery in items as well. Both options will save you skill pts, if you aren't actually using the stun punch/disarm

    PVM wise id personally drop the parry, wrestle and possibly even scribe.

    Mage 120
    Eval 120
    Spellweaving 100-120
    Mysticism 110
    Focus 120
    Resist 120

    I would probably go Elf for the extra 20 mana and stick 20-30 points in Necro (just enough to maintain Wraith form)

    The rack up SDI + Use a Mage weap.

    Now this is strictly PVM.

    Ok guys here's what I've worked out so far as my temp.

    120 Magery
    120 Eval
    120 Resist
    120 Spellweaving
    100 Focus
    100 Mysticism
    40 Med or Necro ...which ever I choose will get jeweled up.

    What do you think? So any holes in my plan?

    Two thoughts... First, for PvM, I think you're going to find yourself mana limited very quickly even with a mega MR suit. I would personally only run without med if I was using wraith form with SS for mana leech. Again this is a PvM recommendation. Second, you've limited the true power of your mysticism by not going 120 myst & 120 focus.

    Personally, I prefer something like these two for PvM:

    120 Magery
    120 Eval Int
    120 Myst
    120 Focus
    120 Resist or 120 Necro
    120 Med or 120 SS

    I like the necro/ss for spawning. The med/resist is probably better for SA bosses.

    I think you, will run out of mana very quickly on that template.
    For pvm as you mentioned, there are some options you could consider.
    As alot already have mentioned, you can get away with 0 resist.
    I would go for something like this.

    110 Magery (enuf for not failing flame strike
    120 Eval (for max spell dammage)
    120 medi (mana mana)
    040 necro (for wraith form)
    090 ss (some mana leech back from wraith form)
    120 Focus (alot goes for 110 here, your'e call)
    120 Mysticism (alot goes for 110 here, your'e call)

    With some juwels u can bump ss to 120, for better mana drain when in wraith form.

    --I agree with dumping inscription for PVM. It's 100 skill points for 10% dmg increase. Not a good trade when you can load up on SDI items or slayers. Inscription is for PVP where you run into an items SDI cap.

    --Go 120 *effective* (including items) Myst/Focus definitely. If you use the Crystalline ring you get free +20 Magery and +20 Focus to offset a -20 mage weap and only need to spec focus to 100 (still need to eat a 120 Focus scroll)

    --40 Necro is wasted points if you're human. If you just want it for wraith, a human can hold and remain in wraith form with JOAT necro. What I would do is have a few +Necro items on you (Two +15 rings, +20 necro bracers, +5 necro talisman), swap them on with a macro and go into Wraith form. Then re-equip your normal equipment. This should allow you to save those 40 pts and put it into something like meditation.

    120 Magery (120 trained, +20 from Crystalline Ring, -20 from mage weap)
    120 Eval
    120 Myst
    120 Focus (100 trained, +20 from Crystalline ring)
    120 Resist (Only needed for PVP; PVM you can go Stone form and resist poison)
    120 (Insert Skill Here)

    Doing it this way, on a 700 skill pt account you have *120* skill points left for some combination of Ninjitsu, Meditation, Poisoning, Spellweaving, etc....

    Most of these are semi expensive scrolls, so if you have trouble obtaining 120's, go with a 110 or 115 til you have enough $$$
