    Default Runes...

    Simple question, likely not a simple answer...

    What runes should I be putting on my gear as a DPS Mage? (sometimes Pyro, sometimes Necrolock)

    I'm T2 geared, with 238 Focus, 461 INT, SP 890, and Spell Crit 643.


    Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated

    for weapon off hand and wand I've seen 2 different runes come out on top 2h (19 int - 9.5sp/19sc) and 17 sp runes, basicly same for a mh offhand

    everywhere else int where possible, radiant sharp 5sp/18 focus if you need focus on legs and helm

    15sc on gloves

    11end on boots

    couple of rep runes for belt (rep from RD? cant remember name) has a 5int 5wis for pretty low rep req, and I beleive order of mathoshas one dont know stats off the top of my head but you ned glorified, andif it isnt order of mathos its the icewatch rep

    A couple sites to help out:

    http://riftcompendium.com/runecrafting/recipes/ - A good list to look up all the recipe's available

    http://bluedots.org/mage-gear-list/ - This lists the best runes for dps in order after the appropriate piece of gear for that rune.

    If you don't need focus, the BiS runes mostly come from glorified rep with specific factions... Icewatch for helm, Mathos for belt, Dragonslayers for belt, and the best rune for boots actually comes from the pvp order of the eye rep (only honored though, so it should be easy).

    Icewatch rep has good helm runes, int/wis/str/dex(whichever you need) + end, mathos has the same except for belts and dragonslayer has the leg ones, i believe mathos and dragonslayer are say.. 9 wis 12end. Also for relatively low notoriety with the pvp quest givers you can get the BiS rune for all classes for boots. 12(class stat, wis/int etc) and 9 end i believe are the stats. The rest he pretty much covered

    Before you get rep with these. I believe the runes you want are int for shoulders and chest, wis for helm and legs, belt rune from runeguard is super cheap on rep and gold if you dont' have mathos and end rune for boots like he said.

    You'll want:

    Helm: Icewatch Summoner's Rune if Glorified with Icewatch
    Radiant Sharp Rune if you need Focus
    Blazing Sagacious Rune otherwise

    Shoulders: Blazing Intelligence Rune

    Chest: Blazing Insightful Rune

    Gloves: Blazing Unwavering Rune

    Belt: Arcane Mathosian Rune if Glorified with Order of Mathos
    Arcane Runeguard Emblem otherwise

    Legs: Arcane Dragonslayer's Rune if Glorified with Dragonslayer's Covenant
    Radiant Sharp Rune if you need Focus
    Arcanist's Rune otherwise

    Feet: Unseen Theurgist's Rune (requires some level of Unseen rep, unsure of name as well)
    Blazing Resolute Rune otherwise

    Wand/MH/OH: Incandescent Savvy Runeshard if need Focus
    Blazing Recondite Runeshard otherwise

    2H: Incandescent Savvy Rune if you need Focus
