My archmage is 7 years old. I started her back in D2 Classic and converted her to Xpac at lvl 67. She is now lvl 99 with 725 mf. She uses frozen orb, firewall and thunderstorm. I was told a few years ago that she "messed up".
I will happily report that I killed the druid that person had. She does have flaws... too much in strength(the armor she was using in D2), maybe too much dex, but her resists are nearly perfect and she can mf wherever I want
to. Yes, she is more fragile than my 1.10 hammerdin. I may even re-make her.
But? She is my oldest character, the one I've always rushed and mfed with
and I suppose I am sentimental about her. Her life is not high enough, I think that is her one flaw. But the right equipment? Can fix that. I have killed the above druid, and yes, a zealot and necro with her. I change her gear to make
her have a faster cast rate and higher resists. The skills don't actually change. I usually have her in Tal's armor, ammy and belt, a 37% HotO(I prefer the resists and lack of auto-tele over an Occy(, 47% travs, perfect Chancies, and 2 SOJs. She has 2 perfect Nagels in her stash, but? Not worth her death. I don't worry over experience..as she is lvl 99. Her inventory has an anni my Trang's nec found. (I hate the vampire look > P ) and multiple 7% smfc I've found over time. She has supplied every other of my 16 viable characters. What more could anyone ask for? No, she does not kill as fast as my hammerdin or my boner. Maybe not even as fast as my dexazon. My new meteor/orb sorc has higher life, but? She feels more fragile than my archmage. I know my archmage is a survivor. Her merc is lvl 98, a barb merc.
he takes care of physical damage as needed. I have her and she actually supplied me well enough to make an enchantress using a Beast, CoH, and other very nice things. You will never hear me say a bad word on an archmage. I can only say that everyone should have one and see just what they can do.
