    Hey y'all. I usually play a necro/mage temp but getting some ideas and wanna change it a bit. I wass thinking
    Mage120
    EI120
    Med 120( worth the extra 20?)
    Resist120
    Spellweaving 100
    Poison 100
    So that leaves me with like 40 extra points. Now I wana incorporate necro for evil omen and corpse skin do I need SS for that and how much necro do I need to to cast those
    Spells? Or is it even possible. Thanx in advance any help woukd be appreciated!

    If you're human, you can get by with JAoT SS for evil omen. You'll want SS for corpse skin though, and it's not worth squeezing it into a template like that. I would personally drop med to 100 and add in 60 necro for omen + wraith form.

    joat is short for the jack of all trades bonus that human characters get. This means as a human you get the equivalence of 20 points in every skill, that doesn't count against your 720 skill cap.

    should i even put it on this temp? i just love using omen. and it also makes the poison more effective. but if its not even worth it than i wont do it. ill invest it in something else. what ya guys think?

    The omen and wraith form is worth it. In a grinder, unless you're in wraith form you're only going to be getting in the way. Omen + FS = a lot more damage, and if you time it right you can get omen + poison spell for lethal.

    I play several 1/2 necro templates. If you can squeeze the 40 points in do 40 SS and 60 necro. 60 necro = never fail oath, pain spike, omen, corpse.

    Oath lasts a few seconds with 40 SS, which is actually nice when both you and your opponent cast exp at the same time, you disrupt his 2nd spell w/ oath and get a good edge on him.

    hell yeah lynk. ok here is the final temp still working on the spellweaving though
    120-mage
    120-EI
    100-spellweaving(i wanna kill someone with pixies lol)
    120 resist
    80 med
    80 posion
    60 necro
    40 ss

    how does that look?

    That looks good to me. The 40 SS is optional IMO, but it's good for having a slightly longer evil omen and blood oath (Lynk swears by this but I'm not as impressed :p ).

    Hate to be "that guy" but I have to say that poisoning is worthless. It really is in todays game, you're better off with something else. Everyone uses curepots.

    It depends who you're fighting and the situation. It's far from worthless.

    Edit: Well... maybe not too far, but still useful enough to be a good skill to have.

    Patience my young apprentice, you can only carry so many cure pots. Only need to cast one more poison spell then they have pots. When they start running for their lives... their outa pots!

    High level poison will work vs a player with vampiric embrace while low level poison won't.

    Works pretty good vs Lady Mel.

    now see what i wanna experiment is. instead of casting EO+Poison. would i be able to just cast poison with 100 poisoning. i just want to interrupt the bandy process even if they are potting. alot of people go into a panic when poisoning is timed correctly. and yeah they cant carry but so much cure pots hehe.

    Well By Reading this Forum i assume you want to PVP, But if you PVM i would go to 120 Spell weaving, nothing i hate more then failing on WOD.

    Hoping the enemy runs out of pots isn't exactly a rock-solid strategy :)

    But if the OP just wants to interrupt bandaid timers, poisoning doesn't really improve that. Poisons land based on magery, all poisoning does is increase the level.

    so having posion on a mage doesnt effect the chance of posioning the person with 120 resist? i know poisoning is based off of magery, but what i was trying to figure out was does it improve the chance of landing it first shot? i kinda switch this temp around making it more effective against dexxers. taking spellweaving off and poison. adding bush and parry.
    but the only thing i really need to learn is playing a stright mage. im so used to having necro spellls and being a stright magge is tough. the other thing i come across is i can never finish an oponent. i think im just dumping too much in the beginning and just wasting mana. anybody have any tips for playing stright mage vs dexxer? (not really stright because i have bush but u get what i mean) any help or tips are appreciated help a brotha out lol!
