    Lots of builds work the key is to know how to play them.  My hunters build is Magery 120, eval intel actual 110 but 120 with a wizard’s curio, meditate and resist and wrestling 100, cartography 100 and remove trap 90.  Will eventually replace wrestling with lock picking.  Currently using master keys to open hoard and trove chests.  He has been doing hoard and trove chests now for about two months.  Generally, he does four or five a week in Malas, Trammel and Fel. .  It sometimes takes a while with dragons but he has never failed to solo every trove or hoard chest he has tried. Last chest spawned three dragons when he dug it up and one more during looting.  Having the appropriate slayer books makes a big difference.
    Would recommend you drop mining and replace it with remove trap.  Mining no longer serves any purpose for treasure hunting.  Cartography now does what mining did.  Otherwise I think your build is fine.
    And, get the mastery’s for magery and spellweaving.
  • thanks! so does resist help you on solo more than say another skill and wrestling would it be better for me to run a mage weapon?

    I like resist on a mage because about half to two thirds of the spawn are spell casters.  Some players prefer orange petals and special apples.  There really is not room for wrestling when you add remove trap.  Think in pvm you really don’t need it.

    Your current build is good as a run and rez build and with a decent SDI suit and slayers you can solo all maps with a lot of running and rezing i suggest 
    LP 100
    RT 100
    Cart 100
    Taming 120
    Lore 120
    Mage 120
    The rest in vet...

    Drop Taming/Lore to 115 and use bird tally
    Drop Magery to 105 and use spell book with 15 on it.

    Taming for sure if you can find a magery book that is not a slayer (tomb of enlightenment?) Then yes !
  • Arnold7Arnold7 Posts: 651
    Try this for level 3 as a mage.  First try and get appropriate slayer books.  When you locate the chest look for your escape route and consider putting a ev in the middle of it.  Chests come up on a count of two.  On one you see the chest and on two the spawn jumps out.  Get the rhythm down so on two you can be running away as fast as you can as the spawn jumps out.  When you are a safe distance away invis. to break any lock one of the spawn may have on you.  Then take your time going back and take on the spawn one monster at a time.  Get each one to follow you and finish them one monster at a time.  Another tech. that sometimes works pretty well is to pause after you locate the chest, then cast two ev’s in your escape route and then finish digging up the chest and let the ev’s do the work as you runaway.  Hope this helps.
     New build is a good pure mage build.

    Note it helps a lot to be mounted on a horse or something else.
  • McDougleMcDougle Posts: 2,801
    yes the most important strategy no matter your build is separating them off one at a time ...

    Lol @Petra_Fyde ; thank you  :p
  • Awesome thanks a bunch I actually have been using a sdi 30 book I think it is an invasion book I’ll have to look at the tomb   The hardest part I had on the lvl 3 was not the initial spawn it was the ancient guardians that spawn while I’m removing trap they kill me a lot!

  • Arnold7Arnold7 Posts: 651
    Yes they are the worst.  Learning remove trap is a pain.  Do lots of stash chests and you will get excellent gains on remove trap.  It gets better but takes awhile.
  • McDougleMcDougle Posts: 2,801
    The longer you wait after digging up the less chance of guardians... i always wait at 2 minutes use invising yourself for timer 
  • Petra_FydePetra_Fyde Posts: 1,049
    start to remove, step a couple of tiles away and pre-cast invis. Drop it on yourself when they spawn.  If you're invised before they spawn they'll reveal you, but if you invis as they spawn you'll survive. Keep a summoned earth or something by the chest to provide a distraction.
