My Mage - Can anyone point out any potential problems?
ok i have been working on my pally for a long time and i ve decided to make a mage with no CTA... life seems a bit low but i havent finished leveling him yet... anyways there are certain classes i know i will have problems with and if anyone can help me point out the problem and what i need to do... i appreciate it... so my gear is:
20/15 Cham'd Griffons
Enigma Mage Plate
+2 pally 10fcr 25str 16 all resists amulet
waterwalks/30frw 9dex 40lit resist 37 cold resist boots/hotspurs
2x 45 base resist sacred targes (one is 205 lit resist and other is 205 cold resist)
399/45resist sacred targe phoenix
grief naga (i also have a grief phase if i want to smite since my AR is really bad... smite will be 7fpa)
Hoto/Ber'd HOZ - switch 1
+3 conviction +2 foh 25/25 scepter/ 5/5 lit facet'd hoz - switch 2
10x p combats
9x 20life/resist sc's
hes at lvl 87 right now... 2175 life with the resist switch and 2200 ish with waterwalks etc against meleers... 6k hammers and 2.6k foh dmg but im plannin to lvl him up to 95 and finish all my skill quests... my foh dmg will be 5.3k-5.5k foh... bottom line i got 75 fcr 31 dr 54 fhr (i think thats 1bp away from 86... but using vigor charge as movement i d figure that d be more than enough) and at my ideal lvl i should have like 2.4k... hopefully 2.5k
now i realize i have grief and phoenix + resist shields for the casters but will my 3k AR be enough to kill sorcs? should i get like 2x p ravens or somethin for that situation... and i have that 40ed/-15req stormshield in stash with grief to charge windys but that doesnt seem like a good idea anymore so should i ditch it?
and is there any other equipment i should consider getting? is there anything i have right now that i dont need? please i need opinions... thanx for whoever is reading this
What about Griffon's Eye for a helm? Can add quite a bit to FoH.
BTW, I calculated the 'best' skill placement at 90 with
2x Soj (or bk)
16 Holy Shock
15 Blessed Hammer
10 Conviction (-150)
9 Blessed aim
1 Concentrate, 1 Holy Shield, 1 Salvation, 1 all prereqs. This is the best dmg output as far as synergy/skill goes.
Gives you a 6.5k Blessed Hammer and a 5.2k FoH
Not quite sure about points after 90 but I think Blessed Aim would add the most. Can get you up to 8k + hammers."
and this is true. i dont remember my exact stats but my old old mage had 6k foh and 8k hammers.
i just tried putting all those skill points exactly how u stated them and the damage output on both is 5.7k hammers and 4.7k foh... unless i am doing something wrong i dont see 6.5k hammers and 5.2k foh...
what level are you? for mine.. i focused most of my attention on foh damage beforei got into hammer damage. only skill amount i am 100% sure i had was 17 into holy shock. my convic didnt lower by 150 either.. mine was like 125. but all in all. i finished at level 92 and i had 8k hammers.
only reason i broke him shortly after was because i totally blew up on the stats.. he had 2600 life AFTER bo ><
