    Is it cool charcter to do necro and spell weaving and myst with a pure mage? i got magery 120,eval 115,med stuff i 112 resist i want to add necro and other magery skills.

    actually i got 2 spots for a main spell and then its counter skill. SO i cna pick necro and SS
    or spell weaviong and myst. seeing how them too coinside with eval I think

    How about this. Use a basic necro/mage template, then switch weaving and mysticism on and off with a soulstone. In other words:

    120 Mage
    120 Med
    120 Eval
    120 SS
    110 Necro
    120 Weaving/Mysticism switched on/off with a soulstone

    Of course, imbuing also gives mysticism a bonus, so if you really want to be a mystic, you could also do something like:

    120 Mage
    120 Med
    120 Eval
    120 Mysticism
    120 Imbuing
    115 Weaving

    You're asking for as much as a bushido warrior that would run with resist. A LOT. You need Eval for Magery and you need SS for Necro. Well...if you want to damage or paralyze and stop a mob.

    You want resist and meditation, so there is 6 skills right there alone. The only thing to do is swap out a skill like I do with my weaver mage. I swap out weaving when I want to write spellbooks.

    You would have to incorporate +skills items/equipment if you wanted to run 7 or even 8 skills. It would make the template pretty acute and not a lot of leeway for changing stuff around.

    Diomedes summed it up pretty well, you're asking for alot on a single template. I definitely can't fit mysticism on this template as well, but this is the best I managed...

    Skill / Real / Total / Items Required

    Magery / 100 / 120 / Tome of Lost Knowledge +15 & Jewelery +5
    Eval / 100 / 120 / Talking To Wisps Ward Removal +5 & Jewels +15
    Med / 110 / 120 / Spell Woven Britches +10
    Necro / 85 / 105 / Midnight Bracers +20
    Spirit Speak / 100 / 115 / Talking To Wisps Ward Removal +3 & Jewels +12
    Resist / 110 / 120 / Aegis of Grace +10
    Spellweaving / 115 / 115

    Real skill points - 720
    Total Skill points - 840 !!

    It'll be expensive to put together and you'll need to find a decent ring & bracelet combo to provide the additional +5 magery, +15 eval and +12 necro but I think it's workable. I'm not sure whether the Aegis of Grace is medable or not, I've never tried. That might be a flaw in the plan...

    Edit - Actually dropping aegis of the grace and replacing it with the Necro Mark of the Travesty would let you:
    1) hike the resist up to 120
    2) drop you're real necro skill points to 75 and spirit speak to 90
    3) take spellweaving up to 120 and magery to a real of 105, meaning you don't require the additional +5 magery from jewels.
    Perfect!

    Eval has no bearing on spell weaving.
    Not all mystic spells need Eval, but it would be nice to have anyway.

    I'd say soulstone resist rather than try to fit 7x 120, especially if you're only doing PvM.

    I'm always afraid to not have resist spells on a mage, but many people run without it in pvm. I guess use enchanted apples, bless, or even stone form to counter some effects.
