What Is The Best Mage Weapon?

Discussion in 'UO Spellcaster' started by imported_JediSith, Nov 4, 2007.

  1. Just curious what people use for both PvP and PvM...

    For PvM...

    Sword of Prosperity
    Scapper Spellbook
    Staff of the Magi.

    For PvP...

    Same as above
    + Warfork with High HCI
    + Butcher's Knife with High HCI


    Any other suggestions

    Depends on your spec, really.

    SoP/SotM is great for necro mages, SC weps are obv great for tanks, Scrappers is a great book for scribe mages.

    Mainly, you want something that will help you get your DCI or get you other needed stuff, SDI, LMC, etc.
     
  3. I've been looking for a long time:

    Repeating Crossbow
    Spell Channeling
    Mage Weapon -20
    Swing Speed +40%
    Hit Fireball 50%

    But I've never found it. [​IMG]

    My pvp mage carries the Tome of Lost Knowledge.

    He keeps his other hand free to chug pots.

    Scrappers &gt; Tome of lost knowledge...
    Just find a scrapper with + skill points, and it's pratically a Tome of lost knowledge but more... frees up a fc1.... and fcr1 (can use a 1:2 jewel ooo)

    Atm i'm spending millions and millions making heaps of scrappers trying to make a +20 skill pt scrapper haaha... that'll be killer for my template... i can fit in chiv for remove curse.. oooo thats hot stuff :p

    I dont need the fc1/fcr1 from the scrappers at all, nor do i need more then 15SDI on my template. So for me the only decent mod on a plain scrapper is the 10LMC and 15 of the 25 SDI.

    So for me a scrappers would give me: 10LMC and 25SDI while the tome Would give me 15LMC, 15 SDI and 8INT.

    But sure for someone that needs SDI or fc/fcr the scrappers might be better. its all up to the user [​IMG]

    I agree as thats what I use on test. The only set up I can think of that would be better would maybe be the Clanins book with the Kasa of the Ra.
    there are so many spell books with different mods you kind of just have to pick one that suplements your suits weaknesses.

    If you are going tacics mage I recomend fencing with the kryss fork combo.
    Hell if you are using any template I recomend those hehehe.

    ohh and i wouldn't use a spellbook if u can't get enough hci without a weapon...
    i run sumthig like 39 hci 50 dci with a spellbook and without a shield... so yeah if ur like 20 hci 30 dci... hehe i'd use a weapon over wrestling.. i think wrestling mages u need damn good suits

    and as the replies stated above.. yes spellbooks depend on ur suit.. i above said i use a 1:2 HCI DCI jewel... thus the reason i require the extra 1 fcr

    Best mage weapon would be any one handed weapon with SC no pen, -20 magery, hci, hit spell... Course, you'd need Inquis, orny and crystalline ring, but still.. That'd be tight

    Please tell my why you need HCI on a mage?

    If you have no weapon skill HCI doesn't come into play at all. The disarm special isn't affected by HCI and neither are your spells. (they hit anyway!)

    DCI is important for a mage, but in my experiance, mostly in PVP.

    Lastly I agree that the best thing to carry for a mage is the best weapon or spellbook that compliment your suit and your playstlye. I wouldn't carry something in both hands because I like to chug pots.

    i hate inquisator's because ur limited to only sc no -1 weps, so i use the 1/2 helm, crystalline ring, and my war mace:
    sc -1/50 fireball/-20 mage wep/50 di (no exaggeration either), missed the 5th mod though since it was monster loot [​IMG]

    Well, with a mage weapon your magery skill acts as a weapon skill for the purpose of hitting an opponent. With a -20 mage weapon and +20 from the crystalline ring, you would effectively have 120 skill with whatever weapon you happen to be using. The hci would be desirable for the better chance of landing your hit spell effect(hit lightning, fireball etc..).

    Couldn't agree more. I had the IR gauntlets for awhile, but they just didn't fit well with my suit, and I have quite a selection of pimp 0/3 rings. Sooo, I traded the IRs for a Val runic hammer. While that wouldn't normally be a good trade, I got the IRs for only 30mil, so in my case, I made out. [​IMG]
