I have been away from the game fore quite some time and am finally getting back into playing on my fire wiz whom is now in the world of Karamelle. I feel like my gear is quite outdated as I am fully equipped with Malistaire's Darkmoor gear. I'm aware that Dragoons gear has pretty much replaced it in terms of the gear to get but I am warry of making the upgrade due decline of resist and critical block. I am usually a solo player which is why I also wear an exalted life mastery amulet and have satyr in my deck and think defensively as well as offensively. Can anyone tell me a new set up and strategy that I should think of using because quite frankly I feel left in the dust. If its important to know I use Morganthe's fire athame, the alpha and omega ring, and a brand new triple damage/double resist pet. also perhaps a new deck set up is in order due to shadow pips being far less reliable.
Darkmoor gear is fine for level 140 IMO. Dragoon gear is certainly nice but I wouldn't say it's mandatory for questing. My only suggested change is to trade in your life mastery for an uber amulet, dragoon amulet, or Darkmoor amulet (the one with 4% pierce and resist). I think the increased max health, resist, and critical or block will help you win fights much faster which means you don't take as much damage.
