    Havent really ever played a mage templete before other then mage/tamer and looking to try something new and was wondering what is the best mage templete out there for doing Peerless Runs and Gauntlet Runs? Im thinking of making a Mage/Necromancer or Mage/Spellweaver but mainly just want to make a templete that will be effective against Peerless and Gauntlet monsters

    A Mage/Necromancer is what I run for doom gauntlet and he works very well. Your going to want to save up for a 120 magery PS as you will be casting many EE's, EV's and Earthquake's, while you could go at GM your going to find the fizzling will get to you so you will want to get to 120. I find an LRC suit is a must, try to leave hands free for a scrappers spellbook which seems best for rooms 2,5 and I find the DF. An Undead spellbook works well for rooms 1 and 4, and a Demon spellbook for room 3, can also use against DF and room 5 though I find I do better with scrappers there.

    My template
    120 Magery
    120 EI
    120 Med
    120 Necro
    120 SS
    the rest I have in MR but that is because I also do alot of champ spawns in Fel, if your not going to Fel you could easily drop and add spellweave for a WoD (word of death) great finish spell. Probably dont need 120 Necro either could get away with GM easily enough. I find I spend alot of time in wraith form to get mana back when I unload attack spells.

    I usually use my mage/tamer for peerless runs so while I figure my necro/mage would do well I havent actually tried him, I like to dust off my other chars once in awhile and let them out to play :)

    Well here's what you do in doom for an idea as a mage:

    Room 1 - Undead slayer book, cast fireball till dead. Throw in evs in between. WoD if you have spellweaving.

    Room 2 - Scrappers. Cast fireball till dead.Throw in evs in between. WoD if you have spellweaving.

    Room 3 - Demon slayer book. Cast fireball till dead.Throw in evs in between. WoD if you have spellweaving.

    Room 4 - Undead slayer book. Cast fireball till dead.Throw in evs in between. WoD if you have spellweaving.

    Room 5 - Scrappers. Summon 2 Earth elementals, all kill. Repeat summoning when they die. WoD if you have spellweaving.

    Final stage, dark father - Demon slayer book. Throw evs, cast fireball/ebolt/explo/FS based on how much mana regen you have. WoD if you have spellweaving.
  4. Lightning/Ebolt works better in room 4 and Earthquake is great in room 5 if you are ready to run/invis

    I actually do more damage in room 5 casting mind blast, harm then I do explosion, flamestrike. They have lower cold resist (mb and harm are cold based) then fire.

    Here is what I use as a mage for peerless and doom:

    Magery 110/120
    EI 110/120
    Med 115/120
    Inscription 100
    Spellweaving 110/120
    Hiding 100
    Stealth 80

    Still need a few PS as the first numbers indicate and will need 40 points in items once scrolled up.

    Hmmm... I like it but I have a phobia about mage templates without resist. Do you have any resist related problems PVM?

    Either will do fine, be it necro, or spellweaver.

    What you will need are slayer books. Undead and demon for gauntlet. The most important thing in those are having high mana regen, because your going to be casting alot for a long time.

    Necros are great because you can get back mana faster with them (wisp familiar, necro form). Spellweavers are great because you can WOD those tough foes for high damage at the end. I can get 3 WOD's in on the DF for 300+ each. Thats a nice 1000 damage bonus at the end. Either will do fine.

    Spellweaving usually is the main choice because it only requires 1 skill compared to necromancy which requires 2 skills (unless you just want to drop necromancy all together and just use items to get into wraith form).

    Try this.. Go with a mage/spellweaver, and use items to go into wraith form for mana replenishment. You can always soulstone spellweaving and raise necro later if you wish. I run a mage/spellweaver and its exactly what I like for peerless/doom.
