Vasyl's Ectoplasmic Raiments Should get extra point for having a cool name. I bought one of these shortly after Mittenacht came out and used it for a while as the robes of choice for a mage. But after a while I decided that it wasn't as good as it seemed. I tend to use Cape Of Dark Magic, Malevolent Robes or Robe Of Lightness these days. The reasons for switching are mainly due to the fact that the spirit card pool is not that great. The only card that you really want from it is Unholy Curse, and to a lesser extent Fly, Memory Loss, and Hex Of Dissolution. The rest is pretty meh, and there is always the chance that you will get a form card that will screw up your draw for a while. The best way I think would be to build around it specifically, I have seen a really fun deck designed to get synergy with the curses and Jim's Magic Missile. Epics: Firehide Robes Low level SP farming staple... Hasek's Icy Ring Not bad for a cold build, but I would probably risk the Creature Of The Night and go for Lich's Locket Salazar's Sandals Not a bad pair of boots, but a little niche imho, Team Walk and Energizing Move are strong, but you have to put up with a Rusty Armor. There are just better boots out there for both. Notable Rares: Epigenetic Eraser Really fun AA item, but I have not really used it yet. Mostly because I have other priorities for divine items. I could see it fitting really well in build with lost of drawbacks on your allies to synergize a bit. Destructive Purge is very strong, and this is the only way to get it on a divine item Focused Pyromancy Must use for all fire wizards Powerpike @Gingrich Yurr and I disagreed on this one, but that is cool (and encouraged!)... I rate this because it is the only item with 4 strong range-2 attacks. I have paired this with Double-Edged Sword and Blazing Shortsword and gotten a pretty strong stab warrior.
