I have a friend who reactivated his 12+ year old account and his main is an old school tank mage. Magery, eval, swordsmanship, tactics, wrestling, med, and he has inscription I think... His template is a mess and I'm trying to offer him solutions. Here's what I came up with... 1. Embrace your mage and drop the wrestle, tactics, and swordsmanship. Pick up Necro, SS, and resist. Use a mage weapon. 2. Tactics mage, get a Bokuto for Nerve Strike. (Requires Bushido too right? if so, drop wrestle). Should his Bokuto have Spell Channeling? 3. Drop wrestle, add a mage weapon, and change swordsmanship to archery for an archer/mage combo. Anything else jump out at you? Keep in mind this is a returning player who does not have a ton of cash or money, so whatever I help him become needs to not cost a lot. 1 Mil GP to this guy would be a lot. I'm going to get him out and spawning so in a few weeks money will be less of an issue, but for now, its a big one. I'm kinda thinking the necromage or archermage might be his best bet for now.
