Life Wizards Aquila Gear Level 30

     Khalkos Coppersmith is back in Dezzy's closet. I swear I need to start charging him rent or something. OK Life wizards, it is your turn for a comparison of the dropped Aquila gear versus the crafted gear. The dropped gear gives way more health and resistance than the other schools - except maybe ice. I really wonder sometimes if Khalkos is in cahoots with Elik Silverfist to get more reagent sales at the bazaar.

     If you are interested in crafting this gear, Coppersmith is waiting in the Garden of Hesperides ready to sell you the recipes. Buying all 3 recipes to make this set of clothing is going to cost a total of 15,000 gold.

446 456   (+10)
14% 14%   (+0%)
4% 7%   (+3%)
20% 13%   (-7%)
24% 25%   (+1%)
26% 25%   (-1%)
12% 16%   (+4%)
0% 6%   (+6%)

     The crafted gear actually gives less damage and resistance than the dropped gear. It does give a double the outgoing heal boost than all the gear for other schools. However, it is still only 6%. Here is the list of what you'll need to make all 3 items in the set ...

1 Senator's Laurel of Truth
1 Senator's Stirring Toga
1 Senator's Guiding Sandals
16 Centaur
20 Pristine Vial
40 Crystal Vial
17 Black Pearl
70 Water Lily
85 Blood Moss
55 Ore
10 Pearl
20 Frost Flower

      Sorry Khalkos, but once again it would be my suggestion to just say no to the level 30 Aquila gear. You really aren't gaining much and losing quite a bit if you use the crafted gear.

Wizards at level 30 have the choice of two different sets of craftable clothing: MooShu gear or Aquila. Mooshu clothing also gives boosts to your secondary schools and would probably be a better choice. Here are links to my blog posts where I discussed the Mooshu clothing available to Life wizards. Feel free to compare them to the Aquila gear and see which might work better for you:

     Please keep in mind that the numbers above reflect the properties given when the entire set is worn together. I have provided a link to the Dezzy's Closet page of our website that gives the clothing recipe and info for the sets, and the names of the individual items that make up the sets - just click on the set title. These pages are not yet available through our site but I have given exclusive early access to our blog readers!
