Ok, as a mage, ive been discussing the merits of having +int or +% to crit items with some mates.. however, ive kinda done some trawling around for any +crit items... i cant seem to find anything (i have been assuming that the items will say +%to crit on them?)

Can any kind soul out there, point a wandering mage to what/where they might be?

Muchograssyarse! :worthy:

Eye of the beast, gloves of spell mastery, rod of the ogre magi, band of runimation, cap of the scarlet savant, arena wristguards, shroud of the nathrezim, azuresong mageblade, staff of dominance....sigh there's loads more.

Only go for crit gear if you are arcane or fire spec in my view, if frost go for spell damage+stat items(like robe of everlasting night for example) , my mage's planned suit has 236 fire damage, 9% crit and over 3k hp unbuffed and around 6500 mana.Just a few hard items to get. xE

Self buffed, that's with 9% from items and 265 fire damage though.(missed an item out)

Would be a lot of damage...just some items are hard to get xE

Easy to hit over 7k mana on my mage if i wanted but i rather have some damage and crit too.

Yeah well as frost spec it's best to go for as much stats(some damage) as possible than crit items...crit items mean everything to a fire mage but a lot less important when frost specced.

I need more damage items. Only got +42 atm (+217 with trinket). Would ideally like at least +100.

+30 dmg on staff of dominance is better imo. Not that I have a staff of dominance. ;<

That works the same, it's not a random amount at least from what i have tested for a while just that it's for all spells.

This is what i had in mind:

Stamina/ Int / Spirit/ Spell damage/ Crit/resist

Azuresong Mageblade 7 12 70 1%
Spellbound Tome 6 17 3
Royal Tribunal Cloak 7 16
Robe Of The Archmage 10 12 40 1%
Dragonrider Boots 12 16 18 10 Fire
Inferno Gloves 9 33
Cap Of Scarlet Savant 27 20 2%
Skyshroud Leggings 8 8 34
Choker Of Enlightment 9 10 10 18
Magister's Mantle 6 22 6
Belt Of The Archmage 10 25 1%
Sublime Wristguards 15 10 6 12
Flaming Eagle Band 6 6 21
Ring Of Entrophy 11 13 8 1%
Briarwood Reed 29
Eye Of The Beast 2%

Total 134 196 33 275 8%


On some parts i have added stamina/int where it can be enchanted, i put 10 stamina on robe of archmage since it's same as 100hp enchant for example and +30 spellpower on sword etc if people are confused that's the reasons.Also +100 health on cap since it's same as 10 stamina too.

There's better items of course but when they come into play i will switch it around a bit. :p

Nah inferno gloves rock, 9 int and 33 fire damage is damn nice, i am wearing them at the moment with 3200hp still unbuffed which isn't bad with 6200 mana too(once i get damn int enchantment on stave xD), 6% crit and 121 spell damage.Gloves of spell mastery and the mc fire gloves with 19 stamina 19 int+23 damage i would only use over them, the brightspark gloves are good too but i only have gordok's.

Been after an eye of flame for ages now, that plus the 100 health enchant would be very nice to use if you can't get cap of scarlet savant though ogre crown is good but eye of flame better i think.I do 330-350 a scorch now and 780-880 a fireball so it's nice bonus.(firepower 3/5)

thing with fire mages are tho ppl use alot of (fireresist gear for mc?) and the potions that protect one for 1950-3200fire dmg .. but ofc they hurt any mage, nice too see that kinda scorch dmg tho.

I have 2970 hp, 7245 mp (unbuffed), +90 frost/+87 arc dmg, 5% crit atm. When I use my trinket (talisman of ephemeral power) I boost to +265 frost damage which is pretty nice - I'm frost/arc and my frostbolt is 560-597 normal and 720-752 with trinket.
Also next patch I gain about 20 sta and 30 dmg (to all) from changes to items, which will rock.

Zorena, the game is very against casters i noticed, with the trinkets, free action pots, magic absorb pots(which you stated), magic resists and not forgetting when we want spell damage sometimes we have to give up the odd hps or mana but melee classes do not lose anything.It's like a warrior going from using the nicker to an arcanite reaper.

I've noticed a lot more resists on our spells now vs 61-62 elites, uncalled for nerf but then again we still a very good class.

Jupitus the reason people post those stats is to give other mages an indication of what damage they would do with how much bonus aswell as how much hp/mana they would roughly have.

I am trying to get robe of the archmage lately...what a pain in the ass it is also pristine hide of the beast for cap of the scarlet savant must be the most annoying item in the game to get. :p

Polymorph can be cast more than once every 5 minutes. They still lose target from the first poly.

You want to get yourself some librams and get decent enchants on those leggings and hat TBH. +AC is more or less useless for a mage, +100 hp or +150 mana on head/legs is a much better bet. Of course if you're not planning to keep those items it might be better not to bother with librams yet. ;)

Odd mix of gear on him - some nice stuff but his overall stats seem a little lower than expected for such nice stuff.

Got my librams in the bank, just waiting til I get my FINAL set together before using any. I know the day I use one will be the day they introduce some new item that is more desirable than what I am after :)

Dark Vault stuff is pretty easy to farm, but the Blood seems a bit rare. Also nerf Eye of Kajal being unique ;(

Know what you mean - only used one of my black bloods, I figured arcanist crown is not something I'll be replacing soon. :p
