    Hi im trying to be a pvmer with all the good items, scrolls, and arties and such. Im very new to pvming so can you give me an idea on how to look for/do champions and paragons, fast money mobs, and strategies on doing gauntlet?

    Spell casters at this time really can't solo a peerless or champs. You need to get with a group when doing this and remember to keep a heal & cure macro and a drink heal and cure potion handy. Another good thing to do is invis if you agro the mob because you really can't tank a mob for very long. Aside from that just hit the mob with spells that attack the mobs weakest resist and stay out of the line of fire. Having an EV or 2 or a summonsed monster to tank for you is also a good idea.

    If your looking to sell stuff for gold you might want to sell the ingredients you get from doing peerless. Some of them can be sold for quite a bit of gold.

    If your looking for a good cash flow get yourself a slayer weapon or spell book and hunt some of the creatures on the slayer. This makes the monsters much easier to kill. If your low on gold just buy an inexpensive slayer and build up your gold to buy a better one or more of them. I try to have 4 super slayers or as many regular slayers as I can find to tailor my template vs what I'm looking to go hunt.

    If your going to go to the gauntlet one of the best templates to take there is a Bushido archer. These can do good damage and with the luck from perfection you can have a good chance for an artie drop to sell or add to your armor or weapons.

    I agree... spellcasters are a bit too fragile to solo peerless.

    Spellcasters are great for getting to the champ in a champ spawn. I'm not sure how effective they are for finishing the champ off, though. You can solo champs with a spellcaster, but you can solo them faster with a dexer or tamer.

    I suspect that mysticism will add a lot of power for pvm caster, becuase it has that 5 slot summon. We'll have to wait and see how strong that 5 slot summon is, though. I mean demons take 4 slots and they aren't really that strong (my pvm mage can 1 hit kill them).

    The Baracoon champ spawn is absolutely easy and solo-able with a standard Necromage. Takes 20-40 minutes depending on how well you can handle yourself.

    Basically wither in wraith form all the way up to the champ. Works easiest with 2 people withering together, especially at 3rd and 4th level.

    You'll need a repond slayer spellbook for the Coon himself.
    Stay in wraith, corpse skin him , and Flamestrike away. You'll stay at full mana almost the entire fight.

    Happy slaying.

    I usually just cast a mass dispel and *POOF* no more summons demon.

    I hope the 5 slot summons is more dispel proof or it will be a big waist of time IMHO.
