I'm TRing my wizard to a Henshin Mystic soon, and I have:

http://ddowiki.com/page/Item:Robe_of_Fire and http://ddowiki.com/page/Regalia_of_the_Phoenix_(unsuppressed) already on hand...

Will these boost the effects of the Cauldron of Fire and Incinerating Waver SLA or should I just leave them in the TR cache for a future caster life?

. . .

Seeing as henshin gets innate fire/force spellpower through core enhancements, spell critical through core enhancements, and treats all staffs as spell implements, I would say yes.

Worth holding onto and trying then. *grin*

Absolutely.

I've crafted rings with these Equipment bonuses and also use Inferno/Impulse potions for the alchemical bonus. Helps a lot.

It doesn't hurt to use the Thaumaturgic staves for additional bonuses.

Important note: According to scuttlebutt told to me, metamagic abilities DO NOT boost Mystic abilities, so if you're thinking of multiclassing your Wizard, you might be in for a shock. Ki is not magic, and thus isn't effected by these spell power boosts. Everything else counts, however.

Not trying THAT multiclass. *grin*

More wanting to try Henshin, having some decent robes and staves on this guy, and tired of being uber-squishy for a while.

So. a basic, pure monk, stave-focussed with the various SLA's and such to go with my other monks...

(A level 25 ninja spy, DEX/WIS, I'll eventually TR back to a similar build, a level 7 pure Shintao with the Healing Dragonmark to try that out, and a TR'd fighter->monk/kensia, level 11 w/7 monk right now going for heavy blades to use his Cloudburst with DEX and Light the Candle...)

...and trappers.
