zerragon said:Hi, Im doing the Rakshasa version of this build, and nearing 40, but I cant make up my mind about using book of enchantment or transmutation.
Which is most effective in most LL areas you think ?
I have a feeling the barrier would be best, but Id like some experienced lvl 60 views on the dilemma.
Also, you often use silent spells at lvl 60?, Ive been debating with myself about going for extend instead, for long lasting tenser, dmg shields and spell mantles.
Thanks in advance.
Playing style is the best way to determine which book you should use. My personal opinion is to choose Enchantment because I think the balor is so much more useful then the wall. There are places where the wall interferes with the landscape (or visa vera) and even though it looks like a complete circle, mobs can walk right though - not much help if you are looking for protection. Granted the Balor's uses are limited too, but much more reliable.
If you can't decide between epics, decide if you want better GMW or the ability to keen piercing/blunt weapons. If you always party with someone who uses a rapier, then keen might be better. On the other hand, I hear if you GMW your own weapons it will increase your AB there for helping your touch attacks land better. Choices! Choices!
I use silent spells at level 60 to free up more slots or have more of a given spell. Granted as a sorc I have 32 slots at some levels, but it does allow me to do some fights without resting. I can load up on IGMS or FoD or Grabby Hands and have more then enough.
The main reason I wouldn't choose extend is because it doesn't work for all spells. It might works great for buffs or grabby hands but in a fight where I need tons of IGMS or FoD, its worthless. Plus as a sorc, if a buff wears off, just recast it!
Good luck and have fun!
