    I know that FC2 and FCR6 is a must have on a PvP mage.

    I was wondering what other stats should i look for?
    Is it true that SI is capped at 25% for pvp?

    The Ring and Bracelet i am using for my pvp mage is

    Dex 2 SDI 6 FCR3 FC1 Cold resist 4%

    HCI5 FCR3 FC1 Energy 2

    Jewel and suit i have hci14 SDI 18 dci 33

    The best ring/brace is Orny/Crystalline Ring (IMO).
    SDI is capped at 15% from items. (10% from scribe stacks on top of this)

    It really depends on your template. You'll want mods that benefit your template and your suit. 1/3 ring with + swords is pretty useless if you don't have swords. :dunce: If your short on resist, lrc, lmc, dci, skills, whatever... you can get a ring/brace to fix that.

    I agree on the ring & bracelet. There are so many variations of possible mods on rings and bracelets I use these as my wildcard to fill holes in my suit. On my mages, I usually put high priority on FC/FCR on jewelry because there are few armor pieces that have these mods (other than spellbooks, helm of swiftness, inquisitor's resolution, Arcane Shield, and the Vesper Chaos replica shield). That's usually the first thing I look at. After that, as I said, it depends on the overall suit. I look to get the following total:

    100 LRC
    40 LMC
    45 DCI
    2 FC
    6 FCR
    As much SDI as possible

    Certainly there are other mods that are helpful, but those are the keys for me on my mages. If it is a tight gimp build (going well beyond 720 skill points) I get the majority of my skill gains off the ring/brace/spellbook combo.

    I like 2/5 more than 2/6. I overcast alot more with 2/6 than 2/5. Besides, my FCR2 LRC 20% STR7 Phys 11% Fire 12% ring fits my suit perfectly :)

    This is a perfect example of using your jewelry to compliment or complete your suit. My stealth mage has over 40 points of skills in his equipment that allow him to far exceed the 720 stat "cap".

    These would be the best PVP ring and bracelet in my opinion:

    3 FCR
    15 DCI
    20 LRC
    8 LMC
    +15 magery

    15 DCI
    20 LRC
    LMC/magery/fire resist/ whatever

    You can see what i'm getting at..these pieces would be ultra-rare.

    So much easier to run Orny/ Crystalline. with better mods.
    Before faction arties I had this ring:
    3 FCR
    12 DCI
    14 LRC
    I used that ring for like 3 years because I never found a better replacement. found it on a dragon, lol.
    Even though Crystalline is awesome, that would have been worthless to what kind of suit I had at the time. I needed those mods.

    my 2 cents:D

    That's a great ring. pretty sweet. and hard to replace.

    I disagree on the overcasting, i don't even think that's possible.;)

    6 FCR gives you a 0 second wait on spells.
    with 5 FCR you still have to wait .25 seconds to cast your next spell. which can be trouble if I'm trying to mini-heal spam out of a gank. :D
