Ok i know im a vet but ive never tried running a mage team before only tank. My new char The True Italian is a single FB mage with a RoE. I train my AMF HP and FB all even. Is there anything that I should change on the team? I wanted to go RoE at low lvls to try to get a high MPR faster but would getting a ToE help or is RoE fine for a long time.

if you plan on going ToE it sounds like you have the plan down. I personally think AMF and a ToE is silly on a FB mage. I trained HP/FB/DM at equal levels till around 300k mpr, then dumped all my DM into FB. I now have my HP at 1/4 of my FB, and that seems to work well. I plan on adding a FF at some point to give myself another damage source.

Well i wanna make my AMF HP and FB even so that ill have any unstoppable AMF and a big HP and FB well i was just wondering is mage equip worth it? or is it worthless compared to its PR gain. Those were some of my main questions and like would more minoins be beneficial later?

If you're planning on staying with the FB then it is'nt (IMO) a good idea to hire more than one more minion. I use the CoC and I have both AG and a CoI .. they are a must for a hardcore mage. Even if you go with AG +12 and CoI +13 .. that's an extra 25% more trained FB ... that gets pretty big :)

As far as a tattoo / RoE .. well right now I'm rockin the RoE, but that's mainly to buff my additional minions .. I'd keep your RoE a little while .. especially if/when you hire your 2nd minion.

a pair of +13 named Ag's only add maybe 20k pr, well worth the extra damage...

With the new calculation of PR added by armor NW the amount of PR added is dependent on the size of the minion. Unfortunately for you this means single minion characters lost out quite a bit.

Ok well what would a pair of AG's cost at that lvl? I dont really have a lot of cash atm i spent a lot before i made the char getting a few items

the +13's are aroudn 2.6 mil NW. they actually add around 40k pr to my char, dunno exactly how all that works out, but it's my understanding that a smaller char would get less pr than my huge single minion. I was under the impession that rares had become useless for mages, but the AG's are another story all together.

Personally I would suggest hiring a second minion to hold your a FF around 500k pr, that's the line where your Max tat is still purchaseable for less than 100% NW.
