Blowing the dust of my old tank mage

    Going to turn him into a pure mage for PvM,

    The big decision I have is on suit.
    I can go ALL imbued, all artifact, or mix I guess.
    I've been searching and reading all the threads I can find and have (I think)
    caught myself up pretty well with all the artis that have been introduced
    for the last 8 years.

    In your opinion, what are the MUST HAVE artis?
    I'm thinking of building around the RBC, but I'm completely open to anything.

    From what I've read of older threads seems most are using a few artis
    then runic/imbued pieces to fill the holes?

    I know I want to max LRC/LMC/FC/FCR and as much SD as I can, but also come away with
    decent resists....

    Hat of magi or wizard glasses
    Pendant of magi
    Stitchers mitts
    MR 2- mana increase 8 -lmc 8 chest and arms with phys and fire high resist
    Spell woven britches
    Bracelet with 1 fc- 3 fcr- 12 sdi- 20 lrc-resist
    Ring with fc 1- fcr 3- sdi 12-20 lrc- and 4 lmc
    Either conjuror robe or cloak of death
    Slayer books
    You can use a shield if you need more resists

    That should make your flamestrikes and whatnot pretty dang toasty.

    Since you said pure Mage and only going pvm:

    Drop resist and wrestle-anat
    Add music and either disco or Provo

    Thanks for the reply!

    I've got most stuff decided on now I think.
    Using an Orny for the bracelet slot.
    Now I've just got to decide on magi hat or glasses,

    and then ring wise, I was thinking of making an ecru ring for the EP.
    But I don't know if that's necessary.
    I'm gonna go with the mage/necro/weaving template, between
    magery and spellweaving healing, I'm not sure if I'll need to chug much
    for PvM though.

    I find ep rings invaluable for my pvp mages. I don't use them at all on pvm mages. Cure and refresh pots work just as well without it. Running 3 more tiles to heal generally isn't a problem either.
