Looking to have high end custom PVM suit made.

Looking for a PVM suit to add to my collection. Need a craftsman who can integrate/maximize skills, stats, and play style into a suit for this old Sage.

Credit to my old friend @Finley Grant who has been my absolute go to suit builder over the years. He is the quintessential master at this. Enjoy your retirement my friend 

If you had some references that would be great if we do not have history together.

    A mage suit.  Thats easy.  Head wear Dr Spectors or Halo.  Arms, Cuffs of the Archmage. Pants Kelp legs or the Elf version.  Just need a Chest, gorget, and gloves.  The basic Leg Mage shield that drops from roof.Tali the orb with SDI and LMC. Tangle, Hawkwinds robe.  LT sash if you need the 1 MR.  You do not need DCI because template does not have the skills needed. Jumu cloak for 5 SDI.

    Str 28, Dex 28, Int 25, HPR 17, SR 15, MR 12  129/104/97/104/90 Resists, DI 60 DCI 20 LMC 22
    Not bad for a starter set for my warriors and all from VS and every piece was less than 1M max

    I also have a mage suit
    Int 71, mana 76, MR47, resists suck, LMC 88, LRC 135  this is a MAX Regen suit for scribes but works great for casting spells non stop for training

    I am working on a Mage suit with all the Mage stuff and 70+ resists in everything and yes both of these suits are brittle and so will my Tamer/Bard/Mage suit to run mastries nonstop while killing stuff with my pet

    There isn't something really "next level" than most of what was suggested. For PvM, you're looking to max SDI. The only pieces that really require thinking are your jewels, gloves, and sometimes neck if you need it to cover resistances.

    Head: Scholar's Halo
    Neck: Pendant of the Magi (or a good gorget if you want resistances here)
    Chest: Protector of the Battle Mage
    Gloves: good legendary with whatever stats you're missing (lmc/lrc), 4 mana regen, int, mana, maybe an eater
    Legs: Kelp Woven
    Back: Jumu's
    Robe: Hawkwind's
    Sash: Spell focusing or Lieutenant
    Belt: Tangle
    Feet: Minax's Sandals
    Weapon: 50 SDI spellbook
    Shield: Vesper Chaos Shield
    Ring: Crystalline
    Bracelet: 18 SDI, 3 FCR, int
    Earrings: 2% to a resist if you need to cover something like physical to have 70 even with protection
    Talisman: Wizard's Curio or any other 5 SDI talisman

  • Lord_FrodoLord_Frodo Posts: 270
    @bas what are all the stats with all those items on, maybe that will help.
  • basbas Posts: 9
    It depends on your gloves/neck choice, but my tamer has:
    127 / 10 / 150 str/dex/int
    118 / 10 / 212 hp/stam/mana
    151 SDI (164 with reaper, 189 with reaper + arcane empowerment)
    3/6 fc/fcr
    40 lmc
    110 lrc
    5 DCI
    28 mana regen
    67/70/70/70/75 (with protection, maxed without protection, maxed with reaper + protection)
    770 skill points (120 lore taming eval mage med weaving, 50 focus)
    27% poison eater

    I could probably find slightly better gloves/neck to eek out the last 3% phys, but I'm often in reaper form, so it doesn't matter.

    I prefer the Basic Legendary shield you get from the Roof:



    Since I use protection, FC is useless. The str requirement is less for these.
    FCR is cheap on jewelry.  MR 4 is sweet.

    you mentioned you use protection, do you also want 2/6 (magery cap) or 4/6 (weaving cap) ? 

    do you want antique jewels or much more expensive and most likely not as powerful clean jewels?

    are you wanting to maximize SDI only, or sacrifice a few points of sdi for other stats?

    I think I would like to max the SDI. Magery is usually my go to side for supporting a group I am hunting with. Spell Weaving maximized damage with WORD of Death that I can cast over and over would be a good objective to achieve. Right now I can hit with that at 705 hp of damage about 4 times or so in a row.

    This is what I consider Next Level. I tried really hard to get 250 mana but I just couldn't make it happen with the 150 HP. Has Halo, Slither and Minax Sandals along with a few no names. I have not died in PVM is over a year with it. The suit also has 18 MR and 12% Casting Focus.

    I can do 9 WoD before I reach >30 with the suit I mentioned.  My other toon with more Meditation can do 8 while running consume. Both do 800 to 900 WoD damage depending on targets.

    I go with 30MR and have 120 mag and eval. I die often because I make bad choices.

    @bas ;

    Could you please provide a break down of the various pieces of your suit and which are artifacts and which imbued ?

    I see that you have no luck on it, does it means that you have then a luck suit that you swap for the kill ?

    Thanks !

  • Garth_GreyGarth_Grey Posts: 1,094
    Word of Death is such a joke @Kyronix . It can be used by everyone on screen to kill and get looting rights from anything. Death Ray however, which pales in comparison, can only be used by a single person against a single target. One of these should be changed to match the other.
    You and Several Others like this.


    Please make the Grizzled Mare a 5 slot mount, it's incredibly rare and deserves it.

    Dump the pendant and chest. You can easily find 20 physical resist chest and gorget on Atlantic with 4 Mr 20 lrc 10 mana. They were less than 2 M each. I just happened to buy a bunch this week but I left a few.

    Also look at gloves for more phy resist.

    You also have the cuffs I think. 

    When I die it would not matter if I had high hitpoints or not.

    Tested the suit this morning seems like plenty of casting power and WoD hit for 937

    I have the same except meditation in place of inscription 

    So med 120 focus 120 and MR 30, yet I still run out of mana by the time I wish to strike with WOD.

    Before arcane empowerment and reaper form, item max sdi can achieve 156, but resist is bad. This is mainly due to Pendant of the Magi.

    Swap that for a legendary and should be able to get 70s resist.

    So I have 3 configuration:
    1) Max SDI 156 + arcane emp + reaper form = 216
    2) Max resist 150 - 151 SDI before arcane emp + reaper form. Should be about 210 SDI in total.
    3) Swap to max luck suit at 2500+ and statue. 

    Then 7 superslayer spellbook keys with SDI >= 25 and all lesser slayers on standby in pack.

    Very Good. I missed the town bonus for SDI 5%. Moving my loyalty around to pick that up as well. 

    When you carry all the slayers do you have some macro to switch them out or do you have to do it manually?

    When you carry all the slayers do you have some macro to switch them out or do you have to do it manually?

    In my case, I used the numpad to switch the spellbooks.
    0 - SDI 50
    1 - 7, super slayers from demon, undead, reptile, repond, arachnid, elemental, fey.
    8 - dragon

    The above are fixed, just like my 6 cameos and certain slayers are fixed on my sampire.

    Then the keys "9", "*", "+" are for 3 slayers depending on the quest.
    "." key is to empty my hands.

    ===
    Just another point to share with everyone is that, there is no need to pay or get to full 50 SDI or 30 SDI slayer spellbooks.

    Especially for slayer, I opine that +25 is enough, as the 300% + 25%. I see some players struggling to get perfect 30 or 50 SDI and paying high price for them - which in actual fact they don't make much difference in terms of damage.

    Imagine its like the Cameo, a slayer is better than 5% damage increase... isn't it? For example EOO is only 82% damage increase, would we pay 100 millions to get just 87% damage increase, or prefer a Slayer which is another 100 - 200% damage increase.

    So don't need to buy those high SDI spellbook.

    The cameo is quite "standard" 6, unless they come up with Fey and Eodon slayer.

    For the weapons, I do equip based on the quest that I do most regularly, i.e. shadowguard.
