    Ok so I am still struggling with what to do with my empath. I have stats figure out, but i also have a parasite runstaff with rotflares and 7x acuity i am trying to factor into my training with necromancy lore. I also purchased a nice set of Doubles that i plan to stick with. So at level 10 this is where I am at if you could chime in one more time.

    why would you do Sorcerous Lore or Necromancy? That doesn't even make sense

    You don't need MOC at your level at all, I'd only consider it maybe past lvl 50-60 or whenever you start hunting in crowded late game areas. My THW empath is lvl 61 and still have never needed it. You can train more in armor until you have the points you need to settle in your doubles, and stop there. I'd strongly recommend 2x physical fitness, it's cheap and will improve your defenses. I also recommend doing 2x spells at least during your lower levels, this way you can get 211 and 215 quickly and boost your AS by a lot. Continuing to do 2x spells will also get you a lot more buffs sooner to protect yourself with, and 117 & 118. Once you've gotten most of your spells you can consider doing less than 2x to your own taste, but keep in mind higher ranks (up to your level) in the empath circle will give you more AS and/or DS from spells like 1130 & 1109, so it may give you reason to continue to do more than 1x in spells.

    Overall, the most important things for you right now is to train your spells in such a way that you have 1109, and will have 211 when you hit lvl 11 and 215 when you hit lvl 15. This will give you a lot more AS to swing dat runestaff with. Trying to then get 117 & 118 as reasonably quickly as you can.

    Probably meant one, Necro lore.

    To boost the rot flare potency:

    Yes the necro lore is for the rot flares on my runestave. The moc, was so I could hopefully hit two foes with rot flares and one could rot away while in,dispatching the other. When casting bone shatter it will also flare from time to time. I went with 1x pt because I can heal myself and the runestave is also t4 ensorcelled. Hoping to get this figured out before 20. So I dont need to fixskills or fixstat anytime soon.

    if you are swinging, what's the point of the runestaff? Moc is a post cap goal for an empath as well as dodge, make a decision either caster or swinger, you will not have the points for both

    10 MOC is not an unreasonable goal, and will eliminate the FoF penalty when fighting a 2nd opponent at the same time.

    Also, only 1x PF on an empath? What is this world
