like Tazthespaz might just go with IN and get better uniques dont you think that it`ll better than that EP
P.S : i always liked EP+3/WP+3 over IN but when it comes to his items which are +9 chitin set dual RoL+2 and i think thats enough.. so much AC that i wont be even lookin at EP+3 for those extra 35AC and 400HP !!
and last time i checked mages dont do poison dmg nor curse so it wont matter that much when it comes to resist
...i say smokes try an IN+0/1(whatever) and EP+3 and tll us which one is better
