Last we talked about As400 I had the goals of getting a Necromancer’s Staff (done) and a seal of the Ring of ER (not done ☹) But hey one out of two tough to farm items in 3 or 4 days is not bad.
Assuming that I do finally get my hands on the Seal I need to get my hands on a Spider Robe (+3 exp Int) and some kind of +7/8 item. Once that is done I have a few other slots to fill.
But before the wiki and I can do our thing and find items to farm for I need to know what slots are open.
So lets see at least one ring slot is open. The cloak slot would open up with a new int item. Getting a spider robe clears out the need for the Bracers of the Glacier now that I have the Necro Staff so it would be open. Gloves are totally open right now and my boots are for FF and a large guild slot that can be moved to any other guild slotted item. I don’t remember 100% and my.ddo doesn’t like old 400, but I think that my belt slot is a simple con belt.
So in summary I am married to my hat, torc, robe (once I get the new one), a ring (once I get that seal) and a staff…. Which means mostly everything. Oh boy….
So what can we get with easy farming/plat?
Well Belt of the Sun Soul is a quick farm. And is a +7 con belt not bad for a generic Con incress if it would grant HPs . The Sun Bracers have exp con and a save bonus, also not bad.
Speaking of easy to farm bracers that are not bad, the War Wizard’s bracers are more Sp and HP even if the rest is not uber… But I can see wearing the bracers all the time once I get enough favor and make the Spider robe part of the War wizards set and swapping into the Amulet in non-torcing fights to push the Sp a little more.
I am not in love with the rest of the turn in items on my Wiz and that leaves us with a lot of open slots so lets look at epic items. Under Boots we have Epic Firestorms, Dustless and Golden Greaves. I would put Delving boots but I will never get a pair. Oh and lets not rule out Rock boots, they are real good for my wiz in fact. Think I will plan on them.
Gloves? The Cannith challenge system doesn’t have any gloves so we can’t just run with them so lets look at the epics. Bramble caster and not a lot else, might have use this slot for some Green steel…
Cloak the Epic Phiarian Cloak is a clear stand out for a PM. But the two epic slots from a Cloak of Flames might be better.
But mainly I need to decide do I bother trying for a Tod Ring/set? The thing is all the Tod Rings are +6 stat and would be a waist I get my hands on a +7 or better Int item. And are any of the ring+belt sets worth it? Maybe the Archmage set??? Kinda…
Idk might use one of my Large Guild rings for like a Great school Focus of Fort so I don’t have to slot extra fort anyplace and keep that guild Hps….
As always if you have any ideas use the comments.
I scored one of the rings that have stats and Wizardry IX [Seal of House Szind] – gets you INT+7 and more SP (meaning you might just want to skip the TOD sets anyway). I love it on my sorcerer. What elements are you using? I use lightning/acid and so I got Bracers of Wind and love the air guard. I do use a pair of Corrosion/Sup Acid Lore + Magnetism/Sup Lightning Lore sticks for when I’m DPSing down a boss (or deathwarded enemies). But having the bracers mean I throw some lightning spells between things without swapping weapons.
I hunt one of those house of X rings but the Spider robe has the Wizardry covered and random dropped goggles or a named trinket can get you the 7/8 int mod so if i am going to max my int think that is the way to go.
As for elemental spells i use all schools that are not necro are about the same but necro beats out any 3 other schools. 🙂
No reason for a tod ring, the sets ate all junk.
The big PM thread recently got a bunch of gear-thinking posts that are pretty good.
