War Mage Build

Postby Quick_Draw » Thu Jun 15, 2017 10:21 pm

Im looking for tips on my WM. He is around 65,000 might. Right now Im hoping to get gem placement advice and recommendations on enchants. Here is what I have in gems:

RED--5 magic, 7 health
YELLOW--7 haste, 3 critical, 3 dodge
BLUE--3 physical resist, 5 magic resist, 2 critical power
EXTRA--1 Fire Critical gem

Where would you place these? Would you change any?

My enchants are defense, status resist, two handed weapon, armor penetration, initiative, fire damage, and ice damage

Tips appreciated

Start with a lot more magic gems (20 will maximise your damage output). Get more crit power, crit and haste. All will help do damage.

For pvp, others will have to help you there.

I don't see what's wrong with those gems for mage in PvP Salad.

at most you use one magic gem, crit power is stupid in PvP unless your Jaw. My guess would be too that the haste gems are out of place so no maximization there.

What salad is sort of unhelpfully explaining about the magic gems goes back to dimishing returns. I forget what the soft cap is but there is a value for magic or melee that over which everything you add is divided by something like 12. You may add 1000 rating but the effect on damage only goes up by 80ish. At that point it's better to invest in health than a tiny extra amount of damage. I'm assuming this point is close to one t7 gem on a high level x4 piece of gear based on salad saying you only need one magic gem.
