Today is Khalkos Coppersmith's last visit in Dezzy's closet. At least for a while, until we get to the level 60 gear at any rate. Last but not least, we portray the level 30 Aquila gear for Ice wizards. Even the dropped gear gives way more health and resistance than the other schools. This could however very well be the best crafted set available in Aquila at this level.
If you have 15,000 gold and are interested in crafting this gear, you'll find Coppersmith in the Garden of Hesperides, just to the right of Mount Olympus.
Senator's Set of WinterDropped
The crafted gear actually gives half the damage boost that the dropped gear provides. Both sets give a nice health boost and the crafted gear gives a higher accuracy boost than the dropped gear. If I was ever going to be tempted to recommend crafting any of the level 30 Aquila gear, this set would be it. Here is the list of what you'll need to make all 3 items in the set ...
|1 Senator's Mantle of Winter|
|1 Senator's Wintry Toga|
|1 Senator's Wintry Sandals|
|40 Pristine Vial|
|20 Crystal Vial|
|17 Black Pearl|
|70 Water Lily|
|80 Blood Moss|
|20 Spider Silk|
Both Ice and Balance receive no outgoing heal boost due to the fact they receive three different resistance boosts. Balance are at least given extra balance resistance with their crafted gear. Sadly, Ice does not get any addition Global Resistance boost. There is always SO much give and take with gear that its worth is really up to each wizard's individual preferences.
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 Ice 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!
