    10% Rings are always an option

    10-15% Ammy with +2 skills

    20% Lidless Wall

    30% Darkforce Spawn (Ladder only)

    Plenty of options, its just a matter of how much your willing to sacrafice.

    Here's my current pvp necro setup. Hes really a NvN dueler, but I can change his equipment around for other classes.

    He can cast at 125 except against blizz sorcs, fohers, and trap asns.

    1.08 Valk Wing (30%)
    Crafted 20% fast cast ammy (20%)
    Hoto (40%)
    1.08 viscerant//um homo//-15 req SS with resists
    Mage/Trangs (20%)
    Fast cast ring with life and mana(10%)
    Soj
    A crafted caster belt (6%)
    Waterwalks
    And of course, Enigma breastplate

    thats 126% if I want to max out life.

    If I want to max out skills for a duel, I substitute the caster belt with arachnids and the fast cast ring with an soj. So with the lost of 16% fast cast, I gain it back with 20% from arachnids to reach 130%.

    Both setups allow me to reach the 56% fast hit reovery breakpoint, as well as reach 2K life before bo, 3.1K after bo, 3.8K-4K if I use sages on hoto with bo.

    Thank you. In any case you're still missing 25% fast cast to reach the last breakpoint. You can make it up by using a lidless+fast cast ring and still keep the other equipment that you want.

    If you also want fast hit recovery, however, it gets a little tricky. You can use bp skillers with 12 fast hit recovery and substitute a good caster belt for arachnids. Although if you choose to go with the caster belt, you may have to rearrange your setup a bit more to reach 125% while still maintain a good fast hit recovery rate. Also there are small charms with fast hit recovery you can use, but personally I'd rather use life/mana charms instead of fast hit recovery. Some of the gear I suggested might be a little expensive to get a hold of, but from your equipment I sense you're a rich player so it might not be a problem.

    As for dr, you can use SS with -15 req jewel with resists. That, along with 8% from enigma, will let you have 43% damage reduce. Thats enough for my playing style. Although if you want to maximize it at 50, you will probably want to wear string//verdungos. But then if you do that, you're gonna have to tweak a little bit more to reach 125% fast cast, not to mention still maintaining fast hit recovery.

    This is why I like 1.08 Valk Wing so much, it gives you fast cast, fast hit recovery, and running speed. IMO it beats shako hands down, and only loses to a godly necro circlet with cast rate, run/walk, and fast hit recovery.(which Im still in the process of acquiring).

    Finally, it all boils down to how much fast hit recovery you want as well as dr. Personally I rank the three mods you mentioned by the following hierarchy 125% cast rate> fast hit recovery > dr. It may be different for you, so feel free to customize and find the best balance.

    You can always jah your shield for the +50 life if you really want it. I carry 4 shields with me, SS, umed homo for elementals, a 3 sapphire kite shield (for those annoying blizz sorcs), and 1.08 vis (for those fun NvN duels).

    You can also socket your helm with a jah if you want the max life you can get from your equipment. I used a pskull in mine and never looked back though.

    under memememe173's eq setup, you don't have to use lidless. he mentioned lidless as being optional. I'd say since you wanted to go circlet, go circlet. After that, get one fast cast ring, and you should be set. that'll come out to 130% fcr. you can then use homunc. if you already have or find a rare/magical caster ring that doesn't seem good enough for you, you can also try crafting one of ur own:
    Magic Ring
    Amn Rune
    Perfect Amethyst
    Any Jewel
    you might get a godly one on ur first try =). make sure u get the ring from a very high area, or gamble it with a very high lvl char though.

    i have a 130fcr for vs caster but its a ladder necro that uses darkforce spawn 2-3-2. this sweet head is the nicest necro item i have seen since 2-20-30 circs and +5 bs heads from pre 1.10. if you are non ladder i would save some currency for when ladder ends to get 1, thay are rather lovely.

    as for non ladder the set up the ones posted are good. its alwasy been my way of looking at a set by starting with top fcr, fhr, mana regen and working from there to get the highest skill lvl and life with out the losing the fcr, fhr, and mana regen. sometime you have to give up on a really high skill lvl to get the best for the fhr, fcr, and mana regen, imo its well worth it

    good luck on your endeavor for the best set up :uhhuh:

    instead of hoto you can use wiz or suicide branch, i don't think the drop in skills is worth 10% fcr though
