Is 120 Mage worth it?

    Did a spawn over the weekend and a 120 magery dropped in my pack. The first one I've ever seen drop at a spawn in 3-4 months of doing spawns. Skittles, Yosef, and I all rolled. I rolled twice - one was for Taunee, who had logged/AFK'd.

    After a few intense, sweaty moments I won the roll.

    My mage/tamer only has 115 magery. But she did eat a 120 eval scroll.

    Is 120 Magery worth it?

    I seem to be able to do everything I want with 115. To be technical I actually have 140 Magery (114 trained +26 in jewels), offset by a -20 mage weapon. I just haven't eaten the 120 mage PS so it displays 115, but would display 120 if I ate it. I'd fizzle less on earthquake and resurrect. I never cast EV's (I'm a tamer). I'd have higher weaponskill for combat purposes.

    Occasionally I'll be put in PVP situations (spawning) but I have high DCI. I know there's a difference between 120 weapon attacking a 115 with mage weapon. Is that tiny percentage between 115 and 120 worth eating it?

    On the other hand Magery scrolls are worth tons.

    And I'm still in need of a NICE dread warhorse.

    Damn I just don't know. Right now the thing is sitting in a very safe spot.

    While I'd eat it myself, I wouldn't on a tamer. Unless you do a ton pvp on your tamer 115 is enough imo. For peerless, spawns, doom, etc 110 or 115 mage is enough. Eat it on a mage (scribe, necro, mystic, spellweave, etc) of some kind or sell it. Just my opinion though.

    For PvP? Yes.
    For PvM? Not really.

    However if you love to use items that have -20 magery on it then perhaps it will be worth it. But I'd imagine you can find equally good items if not better that have no -20 magery on it. If you sell the scroll though, you will definitely be able to afford some darn good items without the penalty on them :D

    Do u spawn on that Tamer??? If so then I would definately eat the 120 Mage... Cause if u spawn there is always a threat of pvp... but if ur juss killing swoops and other creatures in tram facet then definately not...
