    Default What would happen if Mages could wear chain?

    better people than I can run numbers and effects

    our dps would go down(wis<Int)....by how much?
    survivability >....by what 33-50% dmg reduction?


    dunno if Mace could be equippable or not...if the SP too high?


    just a thought....Rogue would be highest DPS based on Frailty(justified stealth too)
    Wars would also need to be higher DPS because of all the CC's/dom abiilities...even with immune, they'd need to do more

    I know it would be like creating a 16 soul cleric class....but for S&G's.....how would wearing chain effect the mage class?

    We would be shinier.

    If we all exchanged our current gear for the Chain equivalent our SP would stay about the same but our Crit and Focus would suffer pretty bad.
    We would have great mana regen though!

    What would happen if Rogues could wear plate? They would be renamed Paragon of course.

    not really the issue as Rogues have stealth/escape/range....these allow them lesser armor

    I hear the gripe of squishy with no justification...so more DPS is often the cry.

    I want to see if not being the squishiest and taking a small hit in dps is worth it to Mages

    For myself: no, I prefer being a glass cannon. High damage and low defense. Why else have we been craving DPS? Cloth is here to stay.

    If we could wear chain you'd see alot of mages running in full raid gear. Why? Simply because chain always drops. Too much chain.

    Mages would gain more spell power and mana regen but at the cost of crit. Mana pools lessen slightly and focus will be the same but we would gear up a hell-of-a-lot faster!
