50 EP (Depends)
18 Damage Eater
Just theoretically here. I'm just coming back to UO, but I love teh mages.
Wouldn't we also want 12 (cap?) casting focus (even if you don't like it), +25 int (to reach 150 int for max spell damage increase). You can pot to 150 strength from what? 120 with 50 EP, but that'd be flexible since it's so hard to get (right?) So I don't remember if you need extra stats or not--I guess not if you also use dex pots.
Is 70 phys, 75 fire, 60 in the rest a common/ok thing to do?
The decision to get 70 DCI or not ought to be based, imo, on how many dexers are on your shard and not in your guild. I used to almost always run 70 though.
Is HP regen really that good/worth trying to get? I know you get it accidentally on a lot of items, but I don't think I've ever played with more than ~12 and that wasn't intentional.
Some amount of SDI will also be needed-15 or 30% I guess. Does anyone actually run 30? I suppose 30 SDI templates lend themselves to other setups like wrestle or anatomy and maybe even parry mages?
