    Default Sentient weapon choices for casters

    Wondering which weapons others have considered for sentient jewels for casters.

    Unlike melees and ranged, I find as a caster I switch items much more frequently and can't think of what might be worthy of sentience, even though the bonuses are very attractive.

    At cap I am guessing Nightmothers Scepter. Apart from that I am at a loss.

    Yeah, Nightmother's Sceptre for sure. Spiral (from the Curse of Strahd raid) is also a fairly solid choice if you're an elemental caster of some kind.

    Yes, the upper epics there is also the legendary slaver's staff.

    I am really hoping someone has a good idea for a lvl 21-23 item.

    Twilight from CiTW. My personal favourite leveling weapon for casters, and it has just been made better with the addition of sentient sets

    Epic Timeblade and Epic Bejeweled Letter Opener are fine if for some reason you already have them, but otherwise a pain to farm (especially the BLO). Epic Flameward is easier to make, but putting a jewel in means you can’t offhand it to UMD scrolls.

    The caster clubs from the anniversary event are also fine if you have one, but obviously not an option if you’re looking now.

    Everything else is quite bad.

    Macabre for your dcs since fil sets only add to dcs not spell attacks or possibly

    Mythic rod since it is the only epic named force club that can be sw'd for now

    Alarphon's Staff

    Easy to acquire though not great, adds 90SP to all elements:

    My take on "the grind": https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthrea...=1#post6220972

    Ordinary humans have inhibitions that serve as a buffer against what we know is bad behavior.
    However, some people, by blaming others for their own bad behavior, develop a thought pattern that allows them to override self-control in order to achieve a selfish end.
    - My opinion on exploiters and cheaters blaming SSG for unfair punishment.

    For DC casters, for sure Nightmother's Scepter at cap. They made that item way OP.

    I'm using a Pale Rod for epic leveling. If you have an old-school Epic item with a red slot, that would work well. I don't suggest using a staff or other 2-hander; most of the lower-Epic-level weapons aren't that great by themselves; the main point would be to hold the Sentient jewel. Then you can have something more directly useful in the off-hand.

    B/c I'm still on the reincarnation train, I was far more worried about Epic Leveling than cap, so I went with a couple of the Lvl 20 "posts" from the Anni event.

    o http://ddowiki.com/page/Item:Shocking_Forum_Post

    Acid or Fire for a 'lock, Electric (or Cold) for a Sorcie, Necro for a PM. The purple slot makes them all more flexible.

    As others have said, the level 20 version of the Flaming / Icy / Shocking / Caustic / Necrotic Forum Post from the anniversary event are good choices. However, if you don't want to wait another 10 months for a chance to get one, other level 20-23 options include: Pale Rod, Icerazor, Staff of the Necromancer, and Twilight, Element of Magic; all of which are from MotU.
