So I've been rocking a pretty good suit on my mage for some time now while I've been deciding what to make next armour wise. I've been battling with excel most of the morning but its a nightmare! I've been collecting a few artifacts ready but this is the problem I'm having, working out what fits best. From my calculations I think i'll need to craft 4 items to be able to hit max resists, LRC and LMC. I'd also like to have 150 intel and as much SDI as possible along with DCI. I've got a tangle and a pretty good ring and bracelet already, its just the rest of the setup I could do with some advice about. I've got a few items ready to rock n roll, but only been back playing since December so there might be some new bits that i'm not aware of. In the bank i've got: Protector of the Battle Mage Enchanted Kelp Woven Leggings Pendant Of The Magi Shroud of the Condemned Crown of Arcane Temperament Cloak Of Power I've also seen the Hat of Magi and a few other bits. There are some boots in the cleanup point system that also offer 2% resist so there might be other parts that could help me out. I also use the protection spell pretty much all the time, so I'd like to bump up physical resist to compensate for this. I was wondering what do the stratics mages use?
