Thread: Doubles vs. fulls for post-cap wizard

  1. Default

    I run doubles on my near cap ranged wiz. All you need is a hit to the head or other vulnerable areas to stop a hunt. At least with padded doubles. It's less likely to stop the hunt outright unless getting hit with a claidh or something similar

    Good idea (and that's the route I'm going on my runestaff). Still need lots of 1202 scrolls though, right?

    easy to unlock and charge 1202 scrolls and sigil staff does not lock them

    1202 is not hard to find in my experience. Scrolls and empowerable/rechargeable magic items that you can charge as a wizard should cover you if you decide to go this route. Especially if you have any sorcerer friends that can help you out on the scrolls. The sigil staff idea is great for item management.

    You could use 1750 items in a pinch. DR has also sold 1x day Iron Skin pins in the past, so those may come around again at some point.

    The Elven Armor is only for Studded Leather (AsG 11) or above, i believe.

    I'm planning to put the mana-infused armor script on this, so using Elven Armor won't work.

    My understanding is that you can't use both armored casting + armored fluidity at the same time. Studded leathers are 9% base hindrance, which I think is going to be too painful to stomach.

    Still leaning a bit towards doubles, I think, vs. fulls + accessories.
    It is changing with the new maneuvers update. fluidity is moving to a fittings service and armored casting is a regular one, they will be allowed on the same item. So studded would be 4% with fluidity and armored casting is changing to 3s hard RT instead of failing the cast. It mainly only doable if you have dodge complete so you have almost zero % chance to get hit in offensive.
    No, I am not Drauz in game.

    2% with doubles and the new fluidity fitting that I don’t need to maintain often sounds pretty nice!

    Looks like ASG 11 and above only

    With these new services I am going for zelnorn (requires at least studded) for the free AS, haven't decided on a script for it.
