    Default Best mage main/offhand combo or staff? And where to find?

    These are the two that seem to be the best, better than any staff i have seen, but who drops them? or, if you may have any information on a better staff or main/off hand, please share! thanks you!

    Pretty organized list and up to date from what I can see.

    Yeah, good luck getting either of those any time soon.

    For the record Darkling Skull is the best offhand in the game, it drops off Alsbeth the Discordant in River of Souls.
    Nope.

    They drop from a quest in Shimmersand, you have to close Fire Raid Rifts until a rare spawn called Maleficent spawns. Once you kill that rare spawn, you need to convince the rest of the Raid to give you the epic item. If you're on the quest, it requires you to kill Guardians until you loot "Never Going to Give You Up" then you have to kill Abyssal cultists until you get, "Never Gona Let You Down" then once you finish the quest, you get a server message saying, "Never gonna run around and desert you."

    Then you get ONE choice from the two above. if you want both, you gotta do it again.

    Oh crap, the one where you need to reflect the NPC's name in a Tempest Mirror right?

    yeah, sorry about that. it comes after the server message

    I'm pretty sure the Akylios Mage offhand has no proc or ability there was a discussion about it a little while back. The Cleric offhand grants an off-gcd 5 target AoE HoT on a 2min CD.
    I doubt the MH has an ability since none is listed whereas the proc on the staff is.

    I got this off trash in HK last night: http://rift.zam.com/en/item/94D3D9B3...ard#Dropped_By

    The trash right after the elevator below Zilas dropped it. This is probably the best weapon for mage within reach currently.

    It's the best staff before the relic from Akylios.
    The best set-up prior to Akylios is Fish Carver (trash drop) or Soultaker (Zilas) + Darkling Skull (Alsbeth)
    Post-Akylios it is Breath Stealer (Akylios) + Darkling Skull (Alsbeth)

    That's right ladies and gentlemen, Darkling Skull is not only best-in-slot for RoS/GSB but also for Hammerknell.

    God that thing makes me wet...
    Nope.

    You must play support.
    I play DPS. Its a double-edged sword. You buff your raid but nerf yourself in order to do, so obviously my numbers are not as high compared to someone else who doesn't have it.

    Currently, only using on Progression fights because we need it.
