    Default Need help with an outdated Evoker FvS

    I have been away from the game for over a year and just got back. I have a first-life level 18 (only about 30K away from level 19), human, true neutral FvS.
    His stats are here: http://my.ddo.com/character/khyber/flavasoul/
    I had followed the classic "Evoker" build when he was first created.

    I am just now "catching-up" reading about the changes from the updates that have happened in the last year or so.

    I was hoping for some comments on how to set him up for the current game.
    I have no problem doing an LR on him if forum responses indicate that would be appropriate.

    Thanks for any help.

    Hi Pappo,
    The standard evoker FvS is still an extremely powerful build. Your wisdom seems exceptionally low though for a level 18 human FvS. I would think at that level you'd have at least:

    18 base
    4 level ups
    6 item
    4 enhancements
    = 32

    Add in a +2 tome (they've come way down in price, or get one from the birthday box) and that's 34.

    A lot of the power for your build will come from epic destinies, so for now I'd mostly work on getting capped and then get working on your epic levels and experience. For items some of the following should be fairly easy to get:

    In terms of gear, are you looking for advice on epic level gear (level 20-25 level items) or stuff you can wear now? Pre level 22 not too much has changed but there's some really cool new stuff at higher levels.

    Also, Cannith crafting makes is pretty easy to fill in the blanks these days. See if you can get a friend or guildy to craft you some stuff like a greater evocation focus item.

    Chette - thanks for the reply. I think I did a +2 Tome on him now, but I will check. Also, yes I would like your comments on gear now and for Epic.
    I will continue to level him to Cap. What Epic Destinies would you recommend I look at for a FvS ?

    Hi Pappo,
    For right now at level 18 I'd look at the following items. They are fairly easy to obtain and will bridge the gap until you are into epic levels.

    Alchemists Crown - Wisdom 8, devotion 72, radiance 72.
    Drops from a rare chest in the Cannith Manufactury. Check on the wiki to get the exact location. Easily farmable.

    Alchemists Pendant - Con 6, greater elemental energy (20 HP like greensteel)
    Drops in blown to bits. Harder to farm as you have to complete the quest to get the chest, but still not difficult.

    Any ring from tower of despair with +1 exceptional wisdom on it (there are multiple rings). You can craft an additional +2 insightful wisdom onto this. Need to flag for and run the raid. A bit more difficult since not too many people run this raid right now, but there are multiple possible ring options, so that makes your chances better.

    Vibrant Purple Ioun Stone (upgraded) - Archmagi (200 SP), greater spell pen IX
    You can obtain ioun stones from the dreaming dark, and are guaranteed to receive at least one on every third completion. Upgrade them at the dreamforge inside the dreaming dark (see the wiki for more info). Easily farmable.

    Greater evocation focus item - Have somebody craft you a shard for this, then you can put it on a weapon, ring or bracers.

    These four items will give you a pretty big boost. On top of that you'll obviously want greater false life, heavy fort, toughness and a charisma item, all of which you seem to already have. Work on getting ingredients for greensteel and a cleansing essence (need 20 completions for this) as you'll want both an HP and and SP item.

    Once you hit level 20 you should claim the exhalted angel epic destiny. This is a great destiny for divines. Work your way through this destiny and get it leveled up all the way. You'll want to level up others eventually in order to get fate points for twists of fate, but focus on this one for now.

    Once you are getting up around level 22 you can start looking at some of the nice epic items available. Here's a few to keep your eyes out for.

    Terrorweb Chitin Breastplate - Find one of these with +3 insightful wisdom on it. Usually available for 50-75k platinum on the auction house so fairly easy to get.

    Wisdom 8 item - randomly generated as hats, rings and goggles. These appear on some named items as well, such as the intricate field optics, ring of the stormreaver prophecy and on blue dragonscale helmets.

    Blue dragonscale helmet and armor - This will be another step up. Harder to obtain and the helmets sell for a LOT right now, so probably a bit out of reach for a while. Think about it though

    These are just a few. There's SO much gear right now that it's hard to narrow it down. Get as much wisdom as you can, as many hit points as you can, and as much light spellpower as you can, and you'll do really well. Epic gianthold has some really powerful items, so get out there and start farming as soon as you can.

    Hope that helps!

    For an evoker FVS I'd probably go with Exalted Angel as your main destiny, twisting in Evocation Specialist from Magister (+3 dc) and Precise Evocation from Draconic (+2 DC) for a nice +5 bump to your evocation spells. Both are tier 2, meaning if you then twist in a tier 1 as your third twist your fate point grind shouldn't be too bad. If you max your wisdom in exalted angel that's another +3 dc.
