Ok, guys, started trying to play a Wildfire Archmage, and I have a question - what sustains do you prefer to keep on, when and at which levels? There's so many of them, I have yet to determine their primary usefulness.



Okay, editing as I go:

Agree with:
Chant of Fortitude - got it from an escort, the saves are pretty good at an early level. And it's free)
Keen Senses - I'll try to go with this, for the crit chance as well.
Premonition - is very costly, so... yeah, I'll look into it later, meanwhile a waste of an escort point
Arcane Power - 30 spell power for 50 sustain? Yes, a bit underwhelming.
Feather Wind - a lot of small gimmicks, not worth the point investment


What about:
Phantasmal Shield
Invisibility
Disruption Shield
Spellcraft
Quicken Spells?

For Future Reference: Stone Skin
Body of Stone
Crystalline Focus - Stone Archmage necessities?

Hurricane
Tempest
Thunderstorm - Air Archmage necessities?

Pure Aether - Arcane Archmage necessities?

Worth the Mana tier:
++ Burning Wake
++ Wildfire
++ Aegis / Shielding
++ Aegis / Arcane Shield
++ Essence of Speed <-- after level 30 or when I have over 500 mana in my pool AFTER the above sustains

Costs no Mana tier:
+ Chant of For-something
+ Elemental Harmony

Meh tier:
* Blur Sight
* Feather Wind <-- actually quite decent at 4/5 but I usually have a better use for those points

Don't forget Keen Senses. For 40 mana it is +10% crit and some other stuff.

I'm ready to run to High Peak and my sustains are:
++ Burning Wake
++ Wildfire
++ Aegis / Shielding
++ Aegis / Arcane Shield
++ Essence of Speed

Chant of Fortress
Keen Senses

This leaves me with 466 mana to play with. I was trying to keep premonition up, but its just too expensive. :/

I get Arcane Power at the very, very end of a run, if I got unlucky enough on my equipment for my spellpower not to be able to overcome the final boss's saves. Mostly only applies on Nightmare, where their saves are rather higher.

Quicken Spells is definitely one of your best sustains. I'd argue that for its cost, it is better worth the category and class points than Essence of Speed. My endgame sustains included Wildfire, Burning Wake, Shielding, Arcane Shield, and Quicken Spells. If going Aether, I'd replace Wildfire and Burning Wake with Pure Aether and Spellcraft.

You can really start to notice the power of Quicken Spells when you also have boots of spellbinding (rare) and a pickaxe of quickening (even rarer).

And then there's Zekemys's Broken Hourglass, for another -10%...
And Scale Mail of the Kar'Krul (which may or may not be from Arcanum, I'm not sure), for another -10%...
(all told, -70% spell cooldowns, if you really want to abuse it :twisted: ).


But just Quicken Spells is excellent, too.

Essence of Speed and Quicken Spells have completely unrelated effects. One of them makes you faster, the other lowers your spell cooldowns. It's nonsensical to say one is superior to the other.
