<p>GU 37 really [Removed for Content] me off.  Nothing like logging in as a 70 SK and being overweight.  Whatever...</p><p>Anyway, to the point, what is the general concensus on the best spec for an 80% group tank, 20% solo, occasional raider?  I have 74 points to work with.  Any help is appreciated.</p>

'cause I was wearing either guild status clothing, or my in-town, RP armor,  had no weapons equipped, and was carrying full 20-30 slot boxes.  I used to be able to wear that crap and still carry the boxes.  In my hunting gear I was not overweight.

<p>Overweighted? Hehe. I'm still at weight of 110. Didn't see the max change yet.. I carry no boxes, just  bags tho..</p><p>Frankly, the encumberance system in EQ2 is sooooooo broken.. How in the heck can you carry entire 2-3 room house stuff all on yourself? <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p><p>Since it's so broken, it is quite amusing to see people griped that, all the sudden, they are overencumbered when it's easily fixable with some carrying method changes to be a tad realistic..</p>

Meh.  I stayed sta/int.  I tried str/int, but I lost about 500hp by doing that.  No thanks.  Get some of the lead out, Axxon, and go sta/int.  <img src="/smilies/69934afc394145350659cd7add244ca9.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />  Your Zek pet buffs up your str nicely, so that should do you, along with a couple of adornments.  If you don't follow Zek, shame on you.

<p>don't have nearly the AA for this, but toying with this template</p><p>Str => 4-8, Agi => 4-4-4, Sta => 4-6-2, Int => 4-4-5</p><p>Got nothing in Str currently - 444 in Int, and 4-2 in Sta.  I suppose I could reallocate the Str to flesh out melee/spell crits, but Im not sure how the haste benefits play.</p><p>Ive seen 4-4-8 Agi/Sta/Int templates being talked about, and I guess Im extrapolating on that from a position of 0 experience with these lines and how they enhance gameplay.</p>

Str 46482, Sta 44871, Hate, Reaver I've played with various builds but keep coming back to it.  The more HP the better for Reaver and tanking, and Str line speedups and hate make a difference too.  I do miss  Int 448 of course. Playstyle: 80% "soloing" with an illusionist dual boxed (Time compression, Haste, Synergism, Illusionary arm <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> ) 19% Groups, 1% raiding

My spec is wis (5,4,5,8,1)+int (7,4,8,4,1).When as solo and with int buff potion my int is 731 (was without int potion in labs raid last weekend in group 851).However despite high int I'm not often in top of dps list unfortunately. I realise this can be due not being in good group like caster group with fury + illu.Have heard that fotm spec atm would be the str, sta int (str mainly for the avenging invigoration, sta for mainly melee crit increase and int ofc for spell crit increase). however this spec would mean to spec out from fear immunity, which is in my opinion for raider sk a nice feature to have (labs, lyceum boss encounters for one) - especially if your mt/ma/ot of the raid.Well thats my two coppers worth. <img src="/eq2/images/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY<img mce_tsrc=" />" />
