Both gear sets will be centered around the 3 piece flamecleansed fury set (Blessed Vestements med armor, hallowed trail cloak, hallowed castigators bracers) + resplendent fury orb for dps and ins wis +10).

    Also for wisdom build my first thoughts are:

    ARMOR: Blessed Vestements medium armor: Fort 214, Phy Shelter 54, Healing Amp 85, False Life 81
    BRACERS: Hallowed Castigators: Devotion 214, Healing Lore 31, Ins Sheltering 27 (Physical and Magical), Improved metamagic empower healing
    CLOAK: Radiance 214, Radiance Lore 31, Evoc Focus 9, Quality Spell Pen 3
    HEAD: Legendary Hardened Hide: Ins Fort 91, Quality Magical Sheltering 11, Quality Con 4, Natural Armor 17
    GOGGLES: Legendary Dusk Lenses: Potency 154, Ins Potency 77, Efficient metamagic empower/maximize
    RING 1: Legendary Shattered Onyx (Profane Spell Focus II, Ins Res 8, Ins Dodge 10, Wis 21)
    RING 2: Celestial Sapphire Ring: Dex 21, Dodge 21, Profane Attributes
    BELT: Black Satin Belt with quality wisdom +5, spell pen 9, quality spell focus mastery 2
    TRINKET: Cannith Crafted Resistance, Spell Saves, Ins Con 7 (swap for fire/elec absorb trinket for raids)
    BOOTS: Slavers: Sheltering 45 (for MRR), Force Lore 27, Spellsight 22, Quality Physical Sheltering 11 (if you despise slavers you can go cannith crafted spellsight 22, sheltering 38 (MRR), ins spellsight 11)
    GLOVES: Gauntlet of the Iron Council for minor artifact: Con 22, spell res 52, ins spell res 26, acid absorb 53% (even if twisting in serenity not sure if 87 is enough to be useful anywhere)
    WEAPON 1: Nightmother Sceptre: Spell Pen 8, Ins Spell Pen 4, Spell Focus Mastery 7, Ins Spell Focus Mastery 4
    WEAPON 2: Resplendent Fury: Ins Wis 10, Ins Radiance 106, Ins Radiance Lore 14, Coalesced Flame (temp spell points on fire/light)

    I am definitely swapping out heavy armor proficiency feat for something else - that feat was to get the +ins wis/con heavy armor which isn't needed since the new set includes either medium or heavy armor as an option.

    Overall - MASSIVE power boost for favored souls with the Sharn gear set despite the caster wisdom minor artifact being in the same slot already take by the flamecleansed fury set.

    anything on neck slot?

    Conduit of the Soul will give you +2 spell pen on your divine spells. Cracked Core looks great, but it's a raid item and might take a while to get. Standard Issue Sigil would allow you to use a different prefix on your boots and a different suffix on your trinket. I will probably go with the sigil given how good fvs spell pen is to begin with.

    I haven't yet swapped my gear, but will soon. I am gearing up many characters so it's a bit slower for me usually.

    You are correct, it all still works - updated the post with tweaks to account for that slot limitation.

    Rats.

    I might have to swap out goggles for collective sight and use pansophic to fit everything in. I have a to work on another project today, but will take a look at it tonight or tomorrow.

    I only care about Devotion and Light spellpower. Even then the light damage is really marginal in comparison, just something to do .

    Collective sight ( 10 insight con, 4 quality saves, 20 insight mrr, +2 good luck )
    Unbreakable Stormreach guard ( 19 con, 67 vitality, fort save 16, +2 reaper stats, only one I pulled ever )
    Slavers neck ( quality con 4, 14 resistance ), that's what I have already
    Epic Litany ( +2 profane stats , necro and enchant augment )
    Hallowed Trail ( radiance lore and spellpower )
    Black Satin ( +2 quality spell mastery, maybe + 5 quality wis one day ) Silverthread belt when I need more devo.
    Shattered Onyx ( 10 insight wisdom, +2 profane spell mastery, insight resistance + 5, 10 dodge )
    LGS spellpoints gloves I already have
    Slavers boots ( 4 quality wisdom )
    Wisdom artefact ring ( 22 wisdom, +2 festive wis, globe, +2 wis thread filigree, 2 x whatever wisdom filigree, 29 wisdom item ftw )
    Hallowed bracers ( Devo and insight sheltering, evo aug )
    Blessed Vestments ( +2 armored agility means 15 dodge )

    Nightmother and Devil defense ( 4 quality con , 49 mrr ) 4 piece Beholder and 4 x random wisdom

    Will eventually craft that 5 quality wisdom on belt, maybe charisma on goggles. Recraft that resistance on boots, idk. It's alright now already, such a pita to regear ANY toon with Sharn. Only if charisma necklace artifact had wisdom option. Castery wisdom artefact on bracers ?! Thank whoever for those craftable goggles.

    About 124 wisdom, 125 Evo, 110 other schools, 200 prr, 150 mrr, 2.5k hp in reaper.

    No wizardy item?

    I had 250 augment somewhere.

    But now swapped neck to Conduit of the soul ( 440 wizardry , 53 quality devo ) and crafted simple reistance 14 quality wisdom 4 slavers boots and I am done with it now.

    Without Silverthread - about 750 devo "character sheet" number, 6.7k sp in reaper.

    Everything can be higher but I don't have superwhatevepletionist toons.

    Thumbs up

    Super build! Surprised you have greater spell pen and completionist but not epic spell pen feat going. Basically +1 DC and some HP more important than 4 spell pen for the build, or something more going on? Trying to understand the logic of endgame DC casting right now...

    Thanks
    Please consider the environment before printing this post

    This was pre-U42 when the best insightful wisdom item was on heavy armor. I will drop heavy armor proficiency in favor of epic spell pen with U42 gear.

    Perhaps the chart over there could help you ? https://ddowiki.com/page/Races

    Of the F2P races, only human comes to my mind, because of the remark there :

    your choice of +1 any stat & +1 to a different stat
    Every other race supporting Wisdom isn't F2P.
    "Archbishop Dryden wants to talk to you to tapper this dale."
    "Archbishop Dryden wants to talk to you to tap on this dale."
    "Archbishop Dryden wants to talk to you to tap on this tale."
    English is not my first language - misinterpretations galore !

    Yes human is the best ftp race for a wisdom-based fvs. Fvs is a feat-starved class so the extra feat can translate into 1 dc if you want the dc.

    Thoughts on tiefling vs. dragonborn for the CHA build?

    Never played either race before, wanted to try one for the hardcore server.

    One of my alts is currently a dragonborn version of this, I'd say the dragonborn is the better choice due to extra DC, and the free breath attack which actually isn't too bad.

    The tiefling enhancements also focus on fire, which is actually not that common for a divine caster.

    But the difference is very small, so I guess it's mostly up to you.

    Agreed, I really like dragonborn for charisma and now with magister you can get a higher dc with a charisma build.

    For the hardcore server I would definitely go with dragonborn. The breath weapon is good dps at lower levels and has some better survivability options (hamp, etc.). Dragonborn charisma fvs in magister has an amazing dc potential. I haven't updated the build with the latest changes but obviously dragonborn char fvs is one of the biggest winners.
