I'm vey old school when it comes to mages, but I've been toying with the following mage: 120 magery 120 eval 120 meditation 120 myticism 120 imbuing 120 resist and I get utterly destroyed by shame elems... Why? 1° If I don't run 'Protection', I can't get a single spell off, I'm disrupted all the time, so my magic resist and casting speed are lowered, which is not fun. 2° I can't nuke mobs like I used to years ago: explo, flame strike, finish off with Corp Por are things of the past, so I get mobs on my face and they do 30+ through 70 resists. So I end up healing instead of nuking and barely can keep up. 3° EVs have been crapified so much I have to use mysticism colossus, which means I'm on foot and I feel like a weak tamer at the end of the day (my main is bard/tamer). I must be doing something wrong. Please tell me I am!
