hehe, yah it did seem a bit contradictory if you think about it.. I didnt even notice it.. hehe.. But what I think he was referring to was the people who strictly target mages w/staffs & swds of prosp as the disarm gimps. I hate those people!! Although I would do the same had I kept wrestle on. You gotta survive and sometimes you gotta be that guy.

Thats actually not a bad idea, drop eval, and be a primarily necro w/magery, instead of being a power mage/necro. Plus at spawns, if you go wraith form and wither, you dont have to worry bout med at all. It would suck on the field tho, as you would be a 1 mana dump wonder, unless like you said, you have amazing mr, like 14+.

I can see doing this to my necro/mage. I dont want to touch the chiv/mage as it is way too fun and the necro is red, so it would be more viable to do this in a raiding sense. I wouldnt have the punch of explo/fs I used to, but I could be the corpse skin, wither, and pois field guy. Hmm. Lots to think about.

Oh and thanks for not contributing to the evade mage gimplate wave! kudos on that!! Almost as bad as the WOD/archers after ML. That was by far the worst thing to happen to pvp in a long time!

Really its just a spawning character...all I use him for...but hes not quite as vulnerable to dexies is all.
and with strangle/corpse, chain pain spikes to interupt and a couple welltimed poison strikes i can kill most anyone (and disarm the evade gimps)
then the wraith form thing of course when it comes down to a choke point...dropa few nox fields,,,hold a efield and wait for them to try to push...drop the efiled behind them, rush withwhither
works wonders

yep, a chiv can cast at 4fc 6 fcr, mage 2fc 6fcr, but people are doing a combo of the 2, so that you get the benefits of casting your heals quicker with chiv than magery heals, plus your ability to Holy Light is REALLY fast, the benefit to that is you can cast HL on the run, and aren't stuck for a timing period like wither, so it is a good spawning technique.

Cutter, last night, I was finally able to get my mage weapon into the suit. I had to switch out my arms, and lost a little poison, I am at 58 poison right now, but that is just until I get a few more barbed kits to try and replace the ones I had before with more fire on em. I also lost 2 MR, but with 120 med and 6 mr, I have noticed, I am doing alright. I guess it will hurt a little but it will have to do for now. I am doing this now, keeping the arcane/scrappers in the bag for spawns, and when we get raided or I want to pvp with the char, I can switch out to the swds. The book is blessed so its a free carry, and I am only really adding 1 more thing, so its just an extra 300 gold. I am going to try it out this week a bit when spawns are fixed on Baja. Right now they are not advancing. I think the only one moving is Despise. I went out and tried a bunch of T2A spawns with a couple guys, and we were fighting over first tier kills, cause it was just not spawning AT ALL!!

good!
I told ya =0

Dont get me wrong extra sdi or lmc or w/e is awesome, but not at the expence of getting yer butt kicked by dire wolves who hit ya eery time, lol...
This is precisely why my "spawner" necro has wrestling right now...I needed the lrc off clanin for one thing, and I was tired of having my swords of prosperity disarmed constantly by the lp ninja disarm gimps.

In any case...what might help ya ify ou want to use the book at times is set a client based equip last button. Works same as with weapons I think...Arm one with yer uoa arm key...disarm it, and arm the other with the uoa second arm hotkey.
now hit the client based equip last weapon button...and boom the other one is in hand. Hit it again and it switches back.
One button to switch between 2 armable items...no have to manually disarm and rearm.
I do this on my ninja dex char to make more specials available...and I imagine this would also work on a necro to quickly and safely switch from the swords of prosp to whichever book you use...and then back again if you're in trouble and need the defence.

also on my necro i make sure to carry orange petals at all times, and bolas.
I wont go into wraith form untill I have both of these...
Then third tier (mages) I usually put on protection...so my whithers dont get griefed, unless I have a peacer with me and follow him while he loops area peace...then dont' need the protection on.
But orange petals and bolas will save yer ass...that and getting good with spiritspeak =0

well i only do baracoon spawns with my swordsman with a soulseeker and vermin slayer talisman. He can solo it up to the serps, then it takes a few min and i usually regress a bit. But I can take baracoon down within 5 minutes with this. I take the chiv/mage to all the other spawns.

Yah, since this thread died, I have since thrown away the chiv mage, and made him a scribe/mage/spellweaver. Essence of wind FTW!
