no with Wrestling you have the disarm special and that will help you stay alive alot of times. Putting the points in parry means you have to get at least 80 dex to not get a penalty to parry and that almost kills your mana pool.

Well after I found the inquis I re-did my suit a bit and picked up some more pieces. I'm at:
max resist
39 LMC
5 MR
96 LRC (I guess ill wear arcane for now)
35 DCI without shield (50 with).
1 hand, -21 mage wep, 0dci, no negitive FC
2fc6fcr
DCI without shield is alittle low but until I get a 1hander mage wep with some I guess its going to stay that way ;p

Well with inquis they say necro mage is way to go. If I dont go necro / mage I would not use the inquis and go back wrestle mage with inscribe.

I just spent a crapload of gold on inquis so I would like to use it =)

To be honest. Either template is quite effective. For the Necro template to work well you need a good SC Mage Weapon with no -1. With the Inquis the suit will be awesome for either. Necro is a more offensive minded template where with Scribe Mage you are more balanced between offense and defense.
I personally have both :). With Wrestling for Disarm<---this is the big difference between the temps, you can live a lot longer from Dexxers. With both you can chug pots which is awesome and the inquis is a big part of either. You were saying you had LRC problems earlier, so going with the scribe mage may be better for you. Cause trust me, arcane always...and I MEAN ALWAYS! Runs out at the wrong time. And missing a recall or heal with 4 or 5 on you is never fun.

In essence your suit would be awesome like this.
Weapon- Clainin's Spellbook
Head: Folded Steel Reading Glasses
Neck: Gorget with LRC and MR 2 and high resists
Chest: AoF
Arms: Nice Barbed Sleeves with LRC and LMC high resists
Gloves: Inquis's
Bracelet: Orny
Ring: Crystalline
Legs: High Resist MR 1 with LRC
Boots: Snake Skins
Tally: Totem of the Void
Back: Quiver of Infinity

If you have inquis all you need is a fc 1 15+ magery ring and than use the magery totem (also gives Enhance pots). You can than use a 1 handed -1 pen magery weapon with dci (they are all over). This would allow you to still chug.

Depending on the depth of your suit and the MR you can go necro/mage or necro/scribe/mage or necro/poison mage. Necro is basically the way to go on a mage. DCI is important but I wouldn't say its the most important thing on a necro/mage because of blood oath. If you are using AOF and a Quiver than you should be at 20 dci right there.

Wrestling on a mage is good if you are chugging but if you are in it for disarm or para blow, good luck. Why try disarming a dexer when you can be dumping on them? If you are a necro/mage, wrestling is a waste because you should be blood oathing than dumping/healing through whatever happens.

The only mage i would have wrestling on would be a tamer because you would want to dismount people with bolas and not lose all of your defense when you disarm.

Personally on my red mage/necro I have inscribe. Cures, corpse + inscribe is nasty. If someone doesnt have resists and lower than 70 fire resist on thier suit, I can explosion flamestrike pain spike them, they are dead. Some people have a ton of life and thats not always the case but I would say i 1/8 life most people with my necro/inscribe/mage when dumping.

Hope this helped, pm if you have ?'s

P.S. you can substitute fc1 on a ring with a arcane shield and gain 15 dci. You wont be able to chug as easily but i ran this for a bit.

To truly understand something, change it.
