I used to play a Bokuto Mage, which excelled both at offense and defense. The defense part is simply due to 120 Bushido Confidence heals while on the run. I've recently created a new Mystic Mage, and I'm finding it harder to survive or run away from ganks than my Bokuto Mage. My current template is: 120 Mysticism 120 Focus 120 Magery 120 Eval Int 120 Resist 120 Ninjitsu (Mage Weapon, etc. for weapon defense) The 120 Ninjitsu is really for dismount survival and shurikens, but I haven't been using it much at all. I would like to trade the 120 Ninjitsu for a skill that give me more survivability. I've been toying with the idea of swapping in 120 Bushido, but it seems like 120 skill points just for Confidence heals may not give me the best bang for the buck. I'd like to hear any suggestions anyone may have -- thanks!
