***Thread Updated 11/03/2013***
Thank for all the feedback and advice. I LRed my pale master to be able the make the changes easier and after some thinking I got the conclusion that as 1st life it's pointless to try getting a high Spell Pen I wouldn't have near enough for drow content even with Epic Spell Pen so if I go with Magister and Epic Spell Pen I would get at maximum 44 spell pen, really not worth the sacrifice on other aspects and I'll probably just TR this toon as soon as I can of course I'll farm items before TRing.
I got my hands on a +5 tome from Manbar and a Spell Storing Ring and started flagging for Shroud.
I have some questions about what items would be worth to farm for when I TR.
1) Is it really worth to get Might of Abishai set and Diabolist's Robe for the initial levels on the current game? If not please give me some suggestions of better gear.
2) I'm leveling up my crafting levels so anything worth crafting for low lvl TRed wizards?
3) I'm currently trying to get Wrath of Sora Kell set, I already have a Kardin's Eye and 2 Robe of Shadow (one lvl 16 and one 24) and the robe from madness quests I'm up for farming Litany, also looking into Concordant Opposition and SP GS gear. Are there any more notable item for leveling up?
5) Are Glacial Assault set and DT robe still worth the run?
