Recommended Aug Sets

Wed Jun 20, 2012 3:15 pm

I know everyone's opinion on this will vary, but I ran accross this post on the SK boards and was wondering if anyone would like to provide their input relative to a mage. I thought it would be cool to have something similar mage specific for guys like me who dont keep track of all the augs available and dont necessarily know which ones are out there outside of seeing links in game.
Recommended Level 75 "Easy" Aug set
These augs have been selected because I believe them to represent a basic set of augs that are easy to acquire with one group for both casual and raiders. These should be considered the minimum, and were picked mostly by being the best augs that are either task rewards or common drops. The 20 AC Shiliskin aug was picked because it's a nonlore aug from a mission that is fun and quick to do, but obviously camping any of the other 20 AC augs would work easily well.

Ears, Fingers, Range: 25AC/25HP - Shard of the Guardian Type: 7,8 (Camped)
Chest, Legs, Wrists: 25 - Flameshield Stone Type:7,8 (Camped)

Primary 1 hander - Jade of the Ether
Shield: 30 - Jewel of the Stalwart - Lore Type: 7,8 (Camped)

Other slots, obviously WHICH slot isn't important for most of these
Head: 14AC/15AVOID/70HP - Diamond Studded Coldain Historical Seal Lore Type:7,8 (Limited by slot) (Reward)
Face: 30AC/60HP - Crest of the Scarlet Legions - Lore Type: 7,8 (Camped)
Neck:30AC/30HP - Forged Froststeel Ingot - Lore Type: 7,8 (Camped)
Shoulders:10/35HP - Shiliskin Reef Swimmer Fetish Lore Type:7,8 (Reward)
Arms:30AC/30HP - Illsalin Enforcer Medal - Lore Type:7,8 (Reward)
Back:20AC/15HP - Hivegrime Stone of Avoidance Lore Type:7,8 (Reward)
Hands:1%/20HP Hivegrime Stone of Deflecting Lore Type:8 (Reward)
Feet:25AC / 40 HP - Polished Caracite Lore Type:7,8 Req 65,Rec 75 (camped)
Waist:20 - Shiliskin Legion Battle Standard Type:7,8 (Chest)

Charm:
10AC/50HP - Slipgear's Gem Lore Type:ALL (Reward)
*or*
12AC/75HP/18stats/12svall - Wanderlust Guild Lodestone

also:
30AC Blessed Shard Lore Type:8 - note this is type 8 only, only for people with at least one piece of 'raid' gear.

Recommended Level 80 "Groupable" Aug set
These augs have been selected because I believe them to represent a basic set of augs that are acquirable with one group for both casual and raiders. These should be considered a generic recommendation package, and may require effort to obtain but should be obtainable for those in "tier 2" bazaar gear.

Ears, Fingers, Range: 25AC/25HP - Shard of the Guardian Type: 7,8 (Camped)
Chest, Legs, Wrists: 25 - Flameshield Stone Type:7,8 (Camped)

Primary 1 hander - Jade of the Ether
Shield: 35 - Frosty Gem of Enhanced Protection - Frozen Nightmares LDON Raid (Groupable or even duoable now)

Head: 14AC/15AVOID/70HP - Diamond Studded Coldain Historical Seal (This one's value changes based on your avoidance, but the fact it's so easy to get for 15AV puts in on the list)
Face: 30AC/60HP - Crest of the Scarlet Legions
Neck:30AC/30HP - Forged Froststeel Ingot
Shoulders:30AC - Jewel of the Stalwart
Arms:30AC/30HP - Illsalin Enforcer Medal
Back:30AC/75HP - Fragment of Heavy Steamwork Plating
Hands:15AC/135HP/10stats,saves/10svall - Jonas Dagmire's Skeletal Hand
Feet:25AC / 40 HP - Polished Caracite
Waist:30 Colepotera Mechanical Beetle Eye Lore

Charm:

This would be a good start http://home.comcast.net/~mathadon/Guide ... mmary.html . Doesn't have every aug but is a good starting off point.

You can click my magelo link and look at my augs in the gear. I have about every good Spell Damage aug that one can get. Spell Damage is our best stat.

It is kind of difficult to make a set list for us because quite a few of the better Spell Damage augs result in the Anniversary events. Flame of Vox aug should be in-game soon though when the revamps start up again.

If you mean spec evo and spec conj, no, they make you use less mana on the cast.

The spec evo / conj stones are almost *required* for mages, they save you that much mana. It doesn't matter if you're a solo / group / raid mage, they just flat out kick ass. Prob one of the most power items in game IMHO.

I found this trying to answer the same questions myself Deadman1204. This comes from the necro boards.

"actually the way that those spell casting school augs work is not 15% mana preservation its even better I will explain.

Every Skill has a set value as you know every spell also has a set value that you didn't know.

Specalization is the ( chance) to have any spell cast of that school only use 50% of the listed mana cost.

What the actual values are for .......you have to think dice im going to use basic amounts.

Lets say you have 200 spec alteration

you goto cast say Reavers Pyre lets say that reavers pyre has a spec check of 400

you grab a dice from 0-200 and the computer grabs a dice from 0-400 whoever has the highest number wins. If the computer wins mana cost stays the same if you win its reduced 50%.

The reason why the augs were never continued were because they are not a set amount of increase they are a % so the higher that the skill is allowed to increase the more that the aug will increase your skill level.

so if you has a 15 % mod aug equipped now your dice goto 0-230 not 0-200 and the computers dice stay the same.

There is not that big of a gap between the spells values and the player skill.

At one time I had both the alter and the conjure ones equipped in my ears removeing a 90 + hps and mana aug in each. ........ The effect was during a raid i saved on average 30% mana and at the time i was at about 37k or so mana pool....

Very very overpowered effect makeing them better than any mana aug out there "

I'll see if I can dig up the #'s somewhere, but we worked it out back in the day to be equivalent to a 1K+ mana aug. Those +15% spec evoc/conj augs blows away any mana aug available in the game today and will remain so for a long, long time even after they nerfed it by putting on a cap.

Here's a quick breakdown of the ~ savings using Ruthless2 and 95 Spear2. This is based on my gear/focus etc..., so it may be a little different for you.

This is average mana saved per cast so it adds up quickly.

RS2 (conj)

Base: Skill 175 - Mana savings 0
Base w/aug: Skill 201 - Mana savings 41
SF: Skill 225 - Mana savings 78
SF w/aug: Skill 259 - Mana savings 131
Spec: Skill 270 - Mana savings 148
Spec w/aug: Skill 311 - Mana savings 212

Spear 2 (evoc)

Base: Skill 175 - Mana savings 0
Base w/aug: Skill 201 - Mana savings 42
SF: Skill 225 - Mana savings 81
SF w/aug: Skill 259 - Mana savings 136
Spec: Skill 270 - Mana savings 153
Spec w/aug: Skill 311 - Mana savings 219
