I'm curious to see if anyone is alive on these forums and if so what templates they like.

I like a Mage with mix/maxed skills. This is usually a mystic mage with something like this...

085 Magery (120 with crystalline and +15 from bracelet)
120 Eval
120 Mystic
095 Focus (120 with crystalline and +5 from bracelet)
120 Resist
100 Anatomy
080 Poisoning

120 focus with 18 Mr handles my mana regen quite well. Not only do I have 70 DCI but I cannot be disarmed so I have a huge leg up on dexxers. I don't pack as big a punch as some of the specialty mages but poison helps a bit as I still get deadly poison. This template has 780 skill pts which I think is just cool. If I have to pvm, I can throw poisen fields and cast RC.

All in all its a very good template.

What do you got?

Looks nice enough. I've used a similar setup on shards where I dont have what it takes to get the standard mage wep mage setup. I ran 120 anat (130 defensive wrestle i think) and 60 necro. Blood oaths vs no resist dexxers last 8 seconds and I get to use evil omens. Painspikes against a 12 resist mage still did 15ish dmg.

I like the classic necro mage right now. I switch between nox mage and necro mage every couple months seems like.

A few things here...

You can't have more than 120 wep skill with anatomy so 100 is all your need.

The formula is (Eval + anatomy +20 /2=Wep skil)

60 Necro 60 Spirit speak is awesome. Note that resist does subtract from painspikes original 18 damage.

Formula is ( Spirit speak - opponents resist +18= Dmg)

So with 60 SS, you do 24 damage vs non resist and 12 damage vs resist.

Evil omen works perfectly with only 60/60, Blood oath and Corpse skin also get decent time against resist opponents.

I do not recommend the "Classic Necro build" currently I find the 2-3 spells you gain for 120 points a waste. Strangle, Wither, Revenent are very good but I usually find a better use of my points.

Thanks for the replies guys!

Wasnt aware anat had no benifit over 100.
Remember if you evil omen them before a painspike not only does it increase the dmg by 50% but also cuts their resist in half so you do almost double damage on that spell.

Hm does it?

I was always very sure it only did one or the other but if thats true, it makes things like Poison spell really good, as it will upgrade the poison and allow a better chance of it sticking.

Also painspike only upgrades damage by 25% but still thats an interesting idea.

Anatomy WOULD have a benefit if your Eval was less than 120.

A little more info please?

Template?

Weapons of choice?

I'm a PvP guru so I can imply what your doing but maybe your info could help someone else out.

I assume your using a Heavy X box to dismount, any preference on your mods?

You know it. Still I thought it was worth making a point.

When people on these and other places talk about "poison mage" or "necro mage" or "mystic mage" what templates are they talking about specifically?

Poison mage I suspect has 80 poisoning and normal mage skills. Do they typically use mage weapons and take other skills too or do they just pick up a lot of meditation, 60 necro mage?

Do necro mages actually run high necro/ss or just keep them low for the standard low end necro stuff (pain spike, short oaths, etc)

Mystic mages have room for something else aside from mage/eval/mystic/focus/resist. Ninjitsu maybe? or inscription?

Ive seen a guy take down a gd with colossis, freaked me out at the time. I know taming isnt pvp but we all have dreams of killing a red.

Sorry didnt read that, erm best ive seen was a trammie named "a Trammie" on europa he wore a never diminishing assassins suit" which has horrible mods, a hunters headress, and had a selection of bows. He was also a ninja so the tracking bonus kicks.
