  • Ok seriously … Why wasn’t Elf mentioned as a PM caster? +3 Spell pen and +100 Spell points (you mentioned Drow has spell pen but this is incorrect, it’s elf.)

    OR better yet, Sun Elf Iconic for the +2 Int AND the +3 Spell pen and +100 Spell Points. All you need to do is use a +1 lesser heart to get rid of the 1 level of Cleric.

    Feats … Insightful Reflexes is a must as far as I am concerned, why wasn’t this recommended? Seeing as you are putting all your effort into your Int stat, why wouldn’t you add that in?

    My PM is at 74 Int with spell pen at over 60 to support (through past lives/feats/enhancements.) She has 4007 Spell points and 825 HPs. 25% faster cool downs in Necro spells through both ERs and Epic Destiny.

    Honestly this is the best class in the game and as long as you have decent back up spells, there is nothing you can’t do by yourself.

  • I think i meant to say elf and said something else…

    My build did have insightful reflexes and I’m pretty darn sure i mentioned it.

  • Hi! First of all, thanks Patrick for keeping ddocast up. And I’m a bit surprised, to say the least, that you chose to have sig comment on palemasters when, from his comments and suggestions, it’s quite obvious he has pre-enhancement revamp and only heroic experience on that. Many of the recommendations made don’t hold their own on epic (let’s say up to hard, keep EE separate as it’s really a different setup needed). So thanks for the very late comments on Shiradi mix, which is sadly one of the few ways to not be too useless in epics. particularly on a first lifer.

    Also, the subject was “casting wizards”. And I pretty much only heard stuff about palemasters. Next to nothing about archmage (they’re not “melee”). To me, this one should have required a bit mroe research (even PM only, there a re quite a few guides on the forums that would cover both heroic and epic aspects).

  • Sig is a master builder and his build as proposed very closely matches a build that I play on live and have played successfully in EE.

    My build did not have any PM enhancements and was heavily invested in the archmage tree

  • Just as another quick comment: choice of spells (particularly non-SR or non resist ones), wise use of debuffs not only for your own spells but as an active party member, use of UMD to be an invaluable party asset and a couple of other subjects (gearing as you level, different gearing for epic levels), and in general tactics when playing either solo or as a group would have been nice.

  • Sorry if I missed the insightful reflexes. I was really listening in for the PM info. Stopped listening after that lol
