The character is a 18 cleric 1 monk 1 wizard Human. Evocation DC oriented in focus, but still good nuking and healing capabilities. I am posting this thread to get some ideas and feedback on gear. Not all the augments are in the build, but I wanted to get an idea. I would like a necro dc augmenet and a little higher necro dc for destruction and slay living then what is listed. The spell penetration is ho hum. I went with two kamas because I like swapping for scrolls and with an alchemical it has the same dc as a two hander with the +1 unique bonus.

A side question is what do folks consider a good evocation dc these days? Exalted Angel is the main destiny and the build uses implosion and soundbursts frequently along with the nuking ability in exalted angel.

Kama: Thunderforged 150 devotion, +6 evocation dc, +17 kinetic crit. orange: 138 force.
Kama Alechemical 2: alchemical +2 wis

Trinket:Litany of the dead
Armor: Shadow Caster: +130 fort, +1 profane dcs, blue slot, deathblock, green slot
Helm: Blue Dragon Helm +3 insight wis
Necklace:+10 resistance?
Cloak: Stormreaver's cloak
Goggle: Shadowsight goggle +11 wis, +2 augment evocation dcs.
Bracer: Dunatheon Bracer/+1 all exceptional stats augment
Belt: +10 health/ +10% dodge
Glove: Iron Mitts
Ring 1: veriks ring +1 exception con +20% healing amp
Ring2: Lantern Ring
Trinket: Litany
Boots: Shroud HP

Trinket : 3 con prowess / Bauble / Pale Lav
Cloak : Tablecloth + 2 evo / Jewelled
Belt : 10 con 10 dodge / Gird / Morah's
Right Ring : Lantern Ring + Globe + 250 sp
Gloves : 10 hp, 15 hp, 6 int skills Smoke Greensteel / few tier 2 Smoke clickies / Air clicky
Boots : Sage's
Left Ring : Guardian + 2 necro
Bracers : Dumathoins
Armour : Shadow caster Medium + 30 striding+2 Good Luck
Goggles : Shadowsight + 40 hp
Head : 3 wis blue + 8 resist + 15 heal
Neck : Sage/ Epic Torc

150 devo/6 evo / Eternal Scorching Light + 15 spell craft + Meridian Longsword
5 Necro Nether Orb + 128 Impulse / Dethek Runestone with Impulse too

It's total mess at the moment :D Still haven't put almost any thought into new regear ( Pulled 11 wis ring so can ditch Shadowsight for new 3bc goggles for example, Have Eidolons neck too, Fot Gloves, 30 amp bracers,new gloves have 40 vita, plenty stuff is doubled, good amount of ml 28 gear now like 10 con/10dodge ring etc ... )
Just didn't think much about it yet so can't wait to see more !

74 Evo / 60 Necro and Conj typically. Works well everywhere, 40 - 50% time in Stormhorns. Well DC wise, I don't mean the STILL ****ED IMPLOSION.

Hey great gear list Wipey. Seems like kind of a mess to me as well. Hard to figure out where to go. I hope to see some more posts as well.

Here's my current layout:

Quiver: Alacrity
Trinket: Litany of the Dead
Armor: Shadowscale Armor (Light Armor, +1 DC version, +40 False Life Augment, +7 Resistance Augment)
Weapon: Alchemical with +2 Wisdom, 90 Devotion & 90 Combustion (Red slot)
Weapon: Thunder Forged with 150 Impulse & +6 Necro (Tier 2 only) (Orange slot)
Wrists: Dumathoin's Bracers (+2 Good Luck Augment)
Hat: Helm of the Blue Dragon (+3 Wis, EH version, +2 Evoc DC Augment, +2 Con Augment)
Necklace: Sage's Locket
Goggles: EE Shadowsight (+2 Necro DC Augment)
Ring 1: EE Ring of Shadows (Globe of True Imperial Blood Augment)
Ring 2: Lantern Ring (Green & Colorless slots)
Belt: Lootgen Health +10 / Dodge 9%
Boots: Sage's Shoes (Swap to EE Surefooted Boots when appropriate, or Anchoring or Firestorm Greaves or whatever.)
Gloves: Gauntlets of Immortality (Yellow & Colorless slots) (could swap this to something else pretty easily if needed)
Cloak: Stormreaver's Tablecloth (Yellow slot) (or whatever here...this my least useful item)

You can get +5 Evoc DC on a NON-hand slot (Sage's Locket), so if you want both Necro and Evoc, I'd suggest Necro in the hand, Evoc on the neck.

Personally, I'm more Necro focused than Evoc. I've got 68ish Evoc DC, depending on my specific feat & twist layout for whatever combo I'm trying out while ERing, and a 73 Necro DC.

Right now, my dream item would be a lootgen helm with +11 Wisdom and +10 Resistance...dump Shadowsight & Blue Helm, put in Intricate Field Optics.

I run this exact split and love it. My build is back a page around the March time frame. It was PDK
based for the Iconic PL. I am now trying the same class split on a FVS Morning Lord (Light Based Damage, DC backup).

My gear from memory:
Helm: Blue Dragon EE +3Wis (Power 250, Heavy Fort)
Neck: Mystic Summon upgraded +4 Con/Dex (15 spell craft)
Trinket: Manual of Pilphering +3 GoodLuck (40HP aug)
Cloak: Tablecloth (slotted +2 Necro)
Belt: 10Con / +9Dodge
Ring1: Lantern Ring (+2Insightful INT, Green Open)
Gloves: Gauntlets of Immortality (+6STR slotted)
Boots: Swap between haycilon (Haycilon's slotted with +2 EVO), jet boots, new Pirate Boots
Ring2: +10 Wis / +9 Resistance
Bracers: GS smoke 45 hp
Armor: Blue, Green, Shadow depending on need (PRR Slotted in Blue/Shadow)
Goggles: Intricate Field optics (draconic gem and Vitality 20)
Weapons: Dual Kamas (+6 Evo and +6 Necro)

ED: EA but no Wisdom spent. Went after Avenging Light, SP, Burst, Bolt and Wrath
Twists: Tsunami, Evo or fire sheath, Brace or other reflex boost

I have 70 + dc in evocation, it works really good in Stormhorn.. but, yeah... Implosion (lol)
Devs said, they are investigating it now.. after 1,5 years :)
