Here's a realistic set of obtainable, droppable Necro gear. Not value gear and not super high end. But basically as good a set of gear as you could reasonably expect a self-funded Necro to acquire on...

I don't understand how you guys can say that INT is easy to cap on a Necro, especially considering that Iksars and Humans only have a base INT of 85. Go to the Wiki and look at droppable +INT gear....

25 INT is much better than 25 STA for a Human Necro and it's not even close.

Think about it like this: at 60, 25 extra STA gives you +60 HP. That's less than you get from a single Velium Fire...

Wizards are a great raiding class through the entirety of the P1999 timeline. Their nuking falls off a bit in Velious, but they gain massive utility and quality of life with their Translocates. A...

The fact that melees and tanks in particular ARE weaker than casters and completely reliant on being geared out is, paradoxically, what makes them more fun to play in the long run. Gearing out a high...
