    Okay so I've just completed building my mage for PVM, 118 SDI which I'm hoping is decently high.
    120 Mage/Eval Int.
    I'm running this temp on my bard, I have high skills in disco/peace/provo
    Which i plan on using the mastery from the bard skills.

    So here's my noob questions!
    Does running bard mastery skills help with boosting power or am I wasting skill points with bard skills?
    For defensive PVM I am running poisoning at GM which helps with debuffs, should I swap to resisting spells?
    Is there a certain rotation of spells I should use to max out performance?
    Should I be using Wrestling in here somewhere?
    Thanks guys! :D

    A lot of boss needs 120 barding skill to attempt, you really need it.

    I'm not sure if having poisoning on a pvm bard mage is a good idea

    You could carry a lesser trapped box (for paralyze) and greater cure potions (for those oh crap moments), this would negate the need for resist in most pvm situations. What are you doing for mana regen btw, SDI is only good as long as you can cast. ;)
