My Bushido/Wrath... advice please

    I'm back from looong break and dusting off my old characters, one of which is an old Bushido character which after reading up i have come to what i feel will be a fun build (i do not expect to be soloing a peerless with this char but would like him to hold his own against Wind ellies and other mid/high range critters)

    700 points base

    Bushido 120
    Parry 120
    Mace 120
    Tac 100
    Anat 100
    SS 120
    Necro 20 (May boost a few skills with jewelry)

    I intend to farm Shame for armour (Part of the role play for this character) so he will have a good suit, but will lose it often and need to be replaced :)
    I intend to try and max out the DCI and HCI, Use curse weapon to heal but i have a few questions...

    1. How would i handle poison? Bring along a load of GCure potions?
    2. Is there anything i should be looking out for on armour (MRegen? Sta/dex boost?)
    3. I am a macer so what weapon should i be looking out for? Mods? ( 50+mana steal/health steal?) My last weapon was the Winds Edge Artie, but this seems poor compared to these other weapons i see
    4. How should my stats look? Maybe heavy on the dex and str?
    5. finally.. Is this template good enough to tackle a Wind ellie? or the new blood ellies in shame?

    Thanks for all advice :)

    Thats a really fun template to play imho. You need to change one thing, that is raising necro to 40 and dropping spiritspeak a bit. Because 40 necro is reqiured to never fail curse weapon.
    I run something similar on a gargoyle, but with 120 resist and no anatomy , mostly for covetous.

    1. I dont carry many cure pots on that char. Either leech trough poison or use spiritspeak / confidence to heal through it.
    2. Stam and dex increase is important on armor, but also hitpoints ,mana,lmc. If you need to regen inbetween fights, carry one of those nice weapons with lots of regens on it.
    No lrc , you only need pig iron for curse weapon and that is very easy to get in tomb of kings. It helps if suit is protection proof. 45 hci is very useful but you can live with less then 45 dci. 100 di from items.
    3. When in wraith form, you are very flexible with weapon mods, could even do without mana leech sometimes. Stam leech and di on weapon are important fo you, the remaining mods depend on weapon and suit.
    Tessen are still useful, not much damage but because of the feint special they can be used to kill nearly everything big. Put hml,hsl,di, hld,hla or slayer onto them.
    Blackstaff is excellent whirlwind weapon, diamond mace for ls spam, war axe for armor ignore. Quarterstaff for double strike spam against low to mid level critters, if you put max life leech on it you can kill a lot of stuff without using curse weapon.
    If you can find 5 ssi somewhere on your suit, you could even use a katrina's crook if you dont have anything better.
    4. I use 10 int , 120 dex, 125 str. May be better to have more dex and less str, but depends on suit and weapons.
    5. The wind or blood ellies in shame are not very hard, but that depends on gear. With really good gear your template can be used against nearly everything that doesnt block life or mana leech. Including doom, champs and probably some of the peerless bosses. In some cases it may be better replace 100 anat with 100 resist.

    Thankyou for the reply :)
    Don't you find yourself running out of mana with only 10 int?

    With wraith form and a good portion of mana increase on you suit it is no problem in almost every situation (Spiderspawn not)
