    Just taking a standard old school mage....what would make great all round suit

    yes 100 lrc and yes all 70 resist....

    is it worth having a 6 piece crafted/imbued suit??? then adding extras...or do u have to use the extras and build around them...just looking to survive a a few solo bosses maybe....

    Mana increase is a wasted stat for a mage. Cap your intelligence bonus of course, but extra mana is actually detrimental to mage suits.

    My character is a Mystic/Mage and I have looked at the Protector Battle Mage tunic that several people have listed in their suit description, but can't figure out how it would help me. Am I missing something about the Battle Mage?

    My suit: Shroud of the Condemned, Tangle, Corgul's Sash, Shadow Cloak of Rejuvenation, Rune Beetle Carapace, Kelp Leggings, Totem of the Void, and Scrappers Compendium. Rest of my suit is Imbued Barb leather and a straw hat.

    Int 150, Mana 185
    Dex 10, Stamina 11
    Str 130 Hit Points 140

    MI 35
    MR 8
    SR1
    DCI 5 (Can be bumped to DCI 25 with Quiver and Shield of Invulnerabilty)
    SDI 43
    HPI 25
    HPR 3
    LMC 42
    LRC 105
    FC2/FCR3
    Resist's are all 70's

    Dex cap is 150 with no cap on Stamina
    Str cap is 150 with 150 cap on Hit Points (Max HPI you can add is 25)

    I personally run a gargoyle necro/SW mage, so I doubt my equipment choices would be any help to most of you.

    As for human/elf, my suit before I changed races was like this:

    Wizard's Crystal Reading Glasses
    Armor of Fortune
    Inquisitor's Resolution
    Spell-Woven Britches (if you're human use Kelp Legs)
    Tangle
    SDI/LMC Mana Phasing Orb
    Corgul's Sash or LT Sash
    Crystalline Ring
    Ornament of the Magician
    Ranger's Cloak of Augmentation
    Imbued Gorget LMC8 LRC20 MR2 and applicable resists
    Imbued Sleeves LMC8 LRC20 MR2 and applicable resists

    Not required but for nice little bonuses are Quiver of Infinity and Conjurer's Garb.

    For any PvM template that focuses on spells for it's main damage, SDI is the stat I focus on primarily. After capping LMC and LRC I focus on mana regen. Resists are generally good to go at 60+ but keep in mind any shapeshifting such as Wraith form or Reaper form will alter your resists so plan accordingly.

    If anyone wants to see my gargoyle setup, let me know and I'll posted. I decided months ago that gargoyles make superior mages as far as equipment sets and maximum achievable stats.

    Iam thinking the same

    battle mage tunic... cast focus 3.. mr2... lmc8 ...lrc10 ..sdi 5....10/16/10/8/8
    crafted/imbued tunic...mr2..lmc8....8 mana increase.....lrc xx ....xx/xx/xx/xx/xx

    does the sdi and cast focus make it so much better than the 8 mana increase and xx lrc and xx resists u can add???????????
