Gear Question

Postby bill » Wed Jan 19, 2005 3:50 pm

Which is more valuable to a mage:

Earring of the Solstice

AC: 5
STA: +5 WIS: +8 INT: +8 HP: +55 MANA: +55
SV FIRE: +5 SV COLD: +5 SV MAGIC: +5
Mana Regeneration: +1

Not at my FT cap atm

OR
Earring of Oppression

AC: 5
STR: +9 DEX: +10 STA: +12 WIS: +12 INT: +12 HP: +95 MANA: +95 ENDUR: +95
SV FIRE: +10 SV DISEASE: +10 SV COLD: +10 SV POISON: +10


Gonna be putting Calliav's Glowing Bauble in one of my ears once I hit 68.

AC: 7
WIS: +10 HP: +45 MANA: +45
Recommended level of 66.
Focus: Jolum's Continual Abatement (15% mana pres on nukes up to lvl 70)

Please post thoughts, I am torn...

Honestly, I like the Oppression one better. Solstice is nice though. Get them both and try them out for a while, then ditch the one you don't like as well.
The one and only (thank God!) FEN!

Trouble is, which one?

drop the SotS once you hit 68.

The EoO has better stas on all fronts but AC.
much better.

Also, the FT will not make a huge differance. You cna Pet Cani, Self Cani ( mana robe) and MOST of our raid hits are not a long distance run like Seru, most are give it all you have untill its dead..and hope you dont run outa mana until it drops.

Pet Cani


:finger :finger :finger :finger :finger :finger :finger :finger :finger

I was totally 00m and using my mana robe during the HP fight. I can blow thru my mana if we have a skeleton crew for XTC.

Its not time that hinders my nuking, its aggro.

The HP raid I chained from 80% to 0% literally (after Azzenkar ate it ha ha)

Yeah, if I replace my EotS, I get a Regen +2 augment back that I gotta put in another piece of gear hehe. I am leaning towards keeping the Earring of Oppression. The Queen liked it afterall )

EDIT
Phantom Shield

This is the first lvl 68 spell I get right before Blade Strike (BS is what is causing the equipment change) and Phantom Shield gives an upgrade over my old Xegony's Phantasmal Shield of 1mana/tick.

This spell upgrade will offset the loss of mana regen 1 from the solstice earring. Therefore, I'm gonna toss the Solstice ear when I hit 68, thanks for the input guys. :thumbup

true Jah, any fight over 4minutes is gonna mean more mana from the regen.

Still, that means we are basically looking at raid encounters to get over 4 minutes of non-stop fighting and in raids resists are key....and the resists on the solstice are kinda shitty.

Tho its something to consider Jah, I think the solstice is getting bagged ;)

Glad you could work on your post count Goof :jester

I would go with the resists of the 2nd ring. Besides do you really want gear from like 6 expansions ago?

Be a lemming. go for teh new sh1ny!

I didn't replace my solstace until I got a lushest foilage. which essentially doubled ever stat on the solstace. But then I am a ranger and they don't have that earing for mages.
