Hi everybody,

Just wondering if you could give me some suggests for gear for an arcanist? For instance, what type of gear would you guys suggest?

Thanks

Also, if you guys could suggest builds? I'm pretty sure I have a good one, but not sure.

Obsidian 5 set, sceptre/shield both obsidian, honor belt and serp sleeves. There's really not much variation in Mage gear. Go for 2 wave earrings and a WAVE necklace or you'll do no damage. Obsidian now/flute both socketed mpen. Gemming is up to you, but most people would slot full defense gems in all their gear. Variations might include move speed instead of pdef in shoes and frigid tracks cast time on your belt. Never, ever put attack speed on your head as a Mage unless you feel like getting two shot by 4k drs. That's really all there is for gearing for mages.


Also, gem toughness and resilience in your shirt and pants, they will make you way tankier than any other stuff in your gear will, so do all your arenas and honor events everyday. Make sure to buy celestial or divine pieces before you gem since you can lose slots to downgrades
