Mage/Necro template?

    Hey guys I was wondering what a basic mage/necro template would look like? I was mainly wanting it for PvM. I was considering doing a bard but necromancy seems so much more awesome! So far I got my Magery, Med, Focus, Eval worked.... What else do I need? I have no idea what a typical template would look like, because I've never done Necro before... Thanks for ur thoughts!

    Assuming you can afford the PS a good mage/necro template is

    Magery 120
    EI 120
    Med 100
    Necro 100 - 120 (might find u dont need the 120 here as only high lvl spell is vamp form which you wouldnt be casting during a fight)
    SS 120

    The last skill can be play dependant I went for Magic Resist since I do venture into Fel, but have seen good templates with either:
    Inscription - bonus to some mage spells
    Spellweave - WOD and other handy spells
    Focus - more mana regen

    Heard talk of some new skill Mystism that was brought up at the last town hall not sure what it will do yet but keep it in mind as a possibility once we learn its use.

    Your EI and SS determine your damage so you want them high and magery as well since you will find casting lvl8 spells easier without failing

    Why don't you need wrestling?

    Wrestling is your defensive skill. It can be replaced by a mage weapon -0. (such as Staff of the Magi) A mage weapon uses your magery skill as your defensive skill. However a mage weapon (I guess books will be disarmable soon :sad4:) can be disarmed and leave you defenseless.

    Players use this in stead of wrestling so they can use the points else where. Some players prefer the wrestling skill so they can use wrestling special moves, and because wrestling can't be disarmed.
