Its been a while since I've been on here, and since I have played TQ for that matter. After searching around for a while for a game that could compare to the fun I found playing TQ, I've realized that there isn't any until Crate Entertainment is able to come up with something. But I digress....
I have been wanting to make a Ice Shard based Mage for quite some time, and never ended up doing so. I know that Persephone's Caress grants a +102% Cold Damage, and +50 Health Regeneration/Second and is normally the sought after weapon in a Shard Mage build. My question is if Persephone's Caress is viable to use with any other class other than playing as a Thane? Let me elaborate, would the strength points you would have to spend be worth it (vs. straight Int build) if you are only able to wield one of them due to picking a different 2nd Mastery? Also, is there anyone still here that has played a shard mage both ways (Thane with dual PC's, and Straight Int build) that could tell me which has better overall survivability and damage?
Thanks in advance for any help here
