As you can tell im a Single fireball mage. im finding that its getting difficult to win with this strat at my current level. i was thinking about getting AMF or dispel magic. if you have an ideas on how to help this strat im really opening to anything as long as it stays sfbm.
Also i was thinking about re inking my ToE to a FF. which one do u think would best help this start. the ToE or a FF.

Your score is twice your PR...that's decent. Who exactly are you trying to beat? Your strat (which is basically just your HP/FB ratio right now) seems fine to me.

You could maybe stand to train a bit more HP, keeping it around a third of your FB at least. Later, you can get pretty nuts with the ratio... I have been at an FB of 2,400,000 with HP of only 700,000 and still been able to find targets with scores above my PR...

It can be difficult finding targets at first, but you don't need to beat everyone. Look at who other mages your level are fighting, and copy. *smile* By that, I mean find other single-minion mages around your PR, and if their score is higher than yours, look at who they are beating and try to beat those targets yourself. Build your favorites list accordingly, and then fight those 20-25 people until you grow. Then, do it all again for higher targets, etc. etc.

Feel free to CM with questions, though I am far from a single-mage genius...

He's just the garden-variety genius.

True. Sad but true.

Okay lets just say I have been beating up on your character for some time now mostly because I have 2 minions ( a FF and a FB mage) to disperse the damage.

The reason I have a FF is so that I can up-fight a little higher than if I used a ToE. Keep in mind that I have both a ToE and a FF at my Max Tattoo level so I tested the theory out a couple of times.

IMO I think that you should keep going the way you are, just keep getting new targets to fight more often. It also might help if your tattoo was as high if not higher than your max level.

That last comment bears repeating. It is always better to have a tattoo higher than your max tattoo level. This way you are always getting the maximum benefit of the tattoo's power.
