I replay Loki since few. Last time was on retail version. But i didn't played so far than level 34.
I like this awesome class : Egyptian. I want a epic mage.
[Based on my Egyptian level 15, Horus 14] At this time i'am Horus adept with : + Lightning (5) + Faith in Horus (5) 4 points left
On each level (first levels) : +1 Vitality +1 Energy +3 Intelligence
But i noticed iam enought strong to kill monsters so i decided : +2 Vitality +3 Energy Because more spells will become high in level, better cooldown you have, more mana you'll need. And Vitality help to stay alive, mage isn't tank.
About equipement, i use a staff for now. But i'am sure scepter + shield will protect me better.
I use lightning magic attack even if 2 sec cooldown is long. I reduce cooldown with "Faith in Horus". After reseting Mummy minion, usefull at begining but useless now because you need to summon mummy on each map, you don't have time to summon mummy at map entrance because too many enemies, mummy killed so fast by ennemies. So its better to decrease cooldown, increase %chance of critical spell, increase mana regeneration, increase elemental protections.
I don't know how many points you can allocate on each divinities (Ra, Horus, Seth).
I'am sure mage must be bi-elemental to survive and use skills about 3 divinities to become powerfull.
What about in another difficulties levels, i don't know. I you want to share your tips, guide, experience, you're welcome.
