    Default Help With Twinking Level 39 Mage

    So I decided to twink a level 39 mage since I had a level 30 mage lying around.

    I would like some assistance in figuring out what the best in slot gear for it will be.

    I have 8 Epic pure Int. augements, so i am hoping to use those up.

    Originally I was going to make 7/7 Silk outfitter cloth...but they are all green, and surely there are items out there better than that for which I can craft or find.
    I also discovered a pretty bad *** staff, which I will use the augment on.....I am almost certain is BIS - http://rift.zam.com/en/recipe/924940...ff#Screenshots

    So if you guys could help me figure it out that would be awesome.

    Helm - Silk + Epic Int. Aug?
    Shoulders - Silk + Epic Int. Aug?
    Chest - Silk + Epic Int. Aug?
    Gloves - Silk + Epic Int. Aug?
    Pants - Silk + Epic Int. Aug?
    Belt - Silk + Epic Int. Aug?
    Boots - Silk + Epic Int. Aug?

    MH/OH - Polished Runebirch Staff + Epic Int Aug?
    Wand - Polished Runebirch Virge + Epic Int Aug
    Neck - ?
    Ring 1 - ?
    Ring 2 - ?
    Trinket - ?

    Also would fill up a sigil of the five with which essences ?

    Cheers (:

    planar gear.

    the biggest gains would be from getting your 6 slot sigil (or resist sigil) and good essences in from currency transfered to your character.

    Along side the benefits you would gain from that the gear differences are laughable.

    Rare planar good vendor in moonshade and droughtlands. You can also quest above lvl 39 yes? Should be some good quest gear if you can manage the quests into IPP.

    Default some BiS gear

    If you head out to the Hunter's Camp in Droughtlands you'll find some BiS gear. You'll have to do 7 days worth of their dailies to get all the stuff, but it's worth it for sure. Shoulders, chest and legs for all classes and they're very good. as far as I can tell it's level 42-43ish equivalent stuff and you can put better runes on them than say, lvl 35 epics you get from puzzles.
    The town with the port far west in Moonshade has some reasonable essences for source engines and, now I havent tested this next part as yet, however you'll notice on the Unseen vendor the source engine with 50 valor on it has no level requirement. So I must get out and see if I can leech some rep from a PvP rift.
    Other than that, just do some zone events and hope for some essences with int, stam and crit on them

    Default BiS cont...

    I should also mention if you do the questlines in Droughtlands and get down to the cyclops area, by doing the arena fights for them you'll get a very nice weapon. Hard fights, take a 50 with you, and even then still hard. The weapon has higher damage than the weaponsmith/artificer crafteds, however they don't have the hit/focus on them that the crafteds do, which is necessary, and you can't augment. So... /shrug. Wielders choice I suppose.

    Also you should DEFINATELY do the epic death saga, you will be able to do the level 40 moonshade part and get a BiS necklace from it, and that is BiS by a long shot.

    If you've got anything BoE, you should send it to your main and throw some runes on it.

    This list helps me, that's for sure. My mage has an epic dagger from droughtlands, though.
    Almost all 39 twinks on defiant side. grr. It's warriors that pwn this bracket, and I'm just piecing together my mage while still learning to play it. lol I might xfer it off Laethys if guards don't twink.

    It's worth noting that for some obscure reason Staves don't get the usual 19 from epic augs as other 2H's but rather only get 12.

    1H's get 10 and Totems get 12.

    So you can get 22 intelligence instead of only 12 by using 1H + Tome if crafted.

    Clever Worn Lexicon
    22 Int
    17 End
    123 SP

    Clever Darkmetal Sword
    23 Int
    7 Wis
    123 SP
    20 SpCrit

    Combo Total
    45 Int
    7 Wis
    17 End
    246 SP
    20 SpCrit

    =
    272 SP
    17 End
    65 SpCrit

    Clever Polished Runebirch Staff
    35 Int
    23 Wis
    10 End
    246 SP
    15 SpCrit

    =
    275 SP
    10 End
    50 SpCrit

    Combo gains 7 End and 15 SpCrit at the cost of 3 SP of which you'd get one back from runes

    If Pure SP is your goal over crit

    or
    http://rift.zam.com/en/item/DABEC289...f-the-Mythical
    are worth looking for, both are rare world drops or from artifacts/cairns/puzzles iirc.

    My mage has Enkarus Kris and Conjurer's Skull of the Sovereign, the old event's: helm, trinket, 1 ring, necklace, and lessers. I still have to decide on crafted or rare planar gear. And I only have the 4 lesser 25 valor sigil at the moment because no one wants to run crafting rifts. I'm buying the 7500 planarite one in the mean time so I can use some greaters. My spec is still crap, and I can get zerged with my current gear and spec, so I have some work to do still. I might end up going to 49 if it continues to suck or transfer somewhere where guards actually try to win.
