    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?

    I only use the casting focus items on my scribe mage.

    The casting focus is really not worth it on another template.

    Zero Day why is that? I am working on a Necro Mystic Weaver or smth along these lines and I was thinking 12/12 CF might be quite useful without wrestling...Do you find that only having 12 CF is useless ?

    I think having 12% casting focus simply gives a 12% chance of casting a spell without being disturbed. Well, that's my understanding.

    You might want to look at getting a Kasa of the Rajin for the resist Boost and 12SDI. I run a Necro/Mage/Scribe with 100lrc/40lmc/45dci/ with (At last count if I remember correctly) 112-118%SDI with 150Mana. This is on a Human character as well, so add an extra 20mana if your an elf.

    My artifacts consist of:
    Kasa of the Rajin
    Pendant of the Magi
    Protector of the Battle Mage
    Crystalline Ring
    Those boots that give +3Int
