Well it's pretty simple, I made a mystic alt, and was wondering what spells i should get adept III's for that would best enhance my ability to solo.  I plan on taking either the group or single ward for M2 choice (not sure which yet).  So what other spells are good in your opinion to take for the soloing Mystic.  And also which ones have the best shelf life.  Just looking for some input before I decide.  Thanks in advance ^_^
 
(also i can only take 5 Adept III's so please list the ones you like in order of importance)

imo before level 30 or 40 adept III doesnt really make sense and is more of a waste of money for me (but thats a personal imho of course)but in general, i take that order:single ward (most of the time the m2 choice)quick single healbuffs like the runic line or ursine (i solo alot)debuffsdotsgroup warddd's

Yep.  You blow through the first 30 levels so bloody fast I wouldn't bother with anything past Adept 1 in that range.

Thanks for the input!  I think I will just get Adept III on 2 spells that will last me till 30+ and sell the other coral for gold.  I apreciate the ideas ^_^

Sure that goes for the PvE environments..

Keep spamming answers to the question tho!! In some occasions (read: PvP) staying below lvl22, maxing out the char, fabling the outfit, adept3ing the spells might be a good reason to 'bother'.. SMILEY

Thanks for the answers ehh.. answer to the OP so far. Very helpfull.

 

Draeck, Venekor

ps: You may react your opinion for a 'group mystic' too.

well, imo every answer in this thread was more helpful then yours though ... especially nowhere pvp was mentioned and its about an alt -> its highly likely that its not on a PvP server.But yeah, complaining about the helpfulness of a post with such a post is like those "complaining about complainers"-thread you find in the general section ....

That's right, in your opinion. I helped by floating an otherwise since 3/7 drowned thread. Imo.

 

... especially nowhere pvp was mentioned

neither was PvE. This class forum is for èvery EQ2 Mystic.

 

and its about an alt -> its highly likely that its not on a PvP server.

Strange assumption. Many players play a high levelled main on PvP and support their maxxed-out-fabled-master&adept3 alt on PvP with the money and knowledge they gained with the main. Not to forget: give the alt a mount.

 

But yeah, complaining about the helpfulness of a post with such a post

I complained about stopping the thread after a complaint 10 days ago. More answers were not likely to come.

I -however- even thanked for the helpfullness of the only real (your) answer. I asked for more, thereby opening the validated "10-20 Adept III Choices for Mystic" thread again.

Wasn't expecting these reactions tho... or wait.. I know what's wrong, I forgot the 'imho'. Par! Don! Me!

The added value of this post:

- "PvP" is a kind of gameplay where level restrictions count for slaying other players, which differ per zone.

In Antonica for instance, a player over 8 levels above you may not attack you. A lvl23 with Legendary gear, Adept3s or Masters, imbued weapons may well slay any 15-31 player. Thus upgrading 10-20 is worthwhile.

This 23 - mòstly an alt - does not want to level to 24 because by then a 32 with way better Mastercrafted gear etc. will be able to attack him/her. The 23 can easily get Master or Champion title in Antonica and Commonlands alone. These sometimes called 'twinked' playeralts appear a lot more often these days, but never on PvE servers.

I was not complaining, and most certainly not against my Master Shaman Example, the respected and always informative Banditman :smileywink:

- A good choice for PvP Tier2 and 3 twinked alts would imo be

  • - single ward ad.3
  • - group ward master2 (groups are 'highly likely' in PvP)
  • - single heal ad3
  • - debuff ad3 (as Mystic you should help the tank at first, secondary yourself)
  • - buff ad3
  • - dd ad3
  • - dot (a fight doesnt take that long on PvP)

- A solo Mystic has no real chance to survive on PvP. In Most Opinions.

- I will admit I highjacked the thread to point out the PvP point of view and thus the importance of 10-20 Adept III Choices for Mystic. Yet I stayed on topic.

Draeck,  21 Mystic Venekor

Who are the 'we' you are mentioning? You can't mean 'everyone else' because I am part of that group and I DO care. So in that case you are a liar... If you only mean a certain group it would be much more intelligent and better for the discussion to say who that group is, ie 'the people who dont care about pvp' or whatever it is. In this case you are just an *ss who want to show off.And also, you obviuosly cared enough to make a remark, so that actually point to my first conclusion about you!But, it COULD be of some other reason you wrote your sm*rt*ss comment and maybe you even did it of a good reason. Therefore I will say 'Im sorry' in advance if that should be true. It actually sometimes DO get to be night in the middle of the day too.

No offense but on both sides, pvp and pve drop the [Removed for Content] attitude.  This thread has gone from a question to an attitude war.  Guess what both pve and pvp attitudes in this case stink.
 
If you want to post your advice for pvp do so without some elitist attitude.  I've known plenty of great pvp'ers that sucked at pve.
 
If you want to post your advice for pve do so without the same elitist attitude.  Same above but in reverse.
 
I respect a good player.  If they are good at pvp I respect them for that.  If they are good at pve I respect them for that.  If they are good at both I respect them for that.  One style of play is not greater then another.  Different people like different things.  Only people that have some major screw loose in their heads think that one or the other is actually demonstarates the quality of a player and their knowledge of the game.
 
Yes I didn't contribute to this thread other then to make a general statement to say stuff it to both sides.

/cheer @ 1Vis

 

/shrug @ Banditman.

I've been playing a pve mystic for long time (Dedicated), a pvp conjuror too, and now a pvp mystic.In all this time I found that Banditman acted like a beacon, a lighthouse to follow, an example for many.

I first found him in Mystic forum, I used his wise hints in Conjurors, and here I came for some better info on the Mystic-in-pvp combination. Guess what? The one person I thought could help me out here  now states he knows the best for all people, has obviously never played pvp, and throws all pvp'ers on one single pile of 'unreasonable' players.

Mr KnowAll has some giant shoes to walk on.

sad tho, I lost my Oracle!! :smileysurprised:
