Your task, if you choose to accept it. 1. Display your vision of the ultimate PvM mage template. 2. Show the %'s of gear a player can get WITHOUT paying gazzions. For example: 100% Lower Regeant Component (LRC) suit augmented by....XXX. Through common hunting of average mobs most players can accumulate a 100% med suit with the various armor parts found on trolls, ettins, ronin, or even as high as Rune Beetles. 3. Do not include items from dungeon dives/crawls. We are assuming a solo player please. 4. Crafted items are allowable as long as the items crafted doesn't call for something like a Dreadhorn. For example" a Chest piece with 14% LRC, 5% Lower Mana (LM) and 5 points in each resist could be enhanced by a Tailor with Spined Leather to get an addition of 40% luck. Common player stuff and how to build is the intent here please. Not, "Go to Luna-tic and buy Scrapper's Conpendium for a couple million and then buy yadda yadda yadda." The exercise is to create (more or less) a character that is uber giv en standard casual middle to low end gaming involvement. Explainations should be in simple English and not full of misunderstood paraphrasiology. I.E., Hakkzorz a 100 LRC MS wit twin 40 MR and get a goyle ta knock 70s across the slab. Nuff said CYA. Leet out. Can you do it? Lastly, if you do not like this scenario then please post one of yours that other people may be entertained and join in on that thread.
