Spell Caster, main handed weapon?


I can't seem to find a spell casters 1 handed main hand weapon. What I mean by this is a 1 hander that increases damage to spells. I see only weapon damage, but not spell damage. I see the offhand item, but what main hand item goes with it?

I think we may need to add wants into the game for this purpose. Not as powerful as the staffs but have some stats on them that benefit the casters.

I think adding a wand to the game would help with this spot.

Agreed I have not found a one-handed mage wand/weapon yet and doubt there is one in-game. It seems the off-hand mage item is for melee/ranged characters to use so they can have spell casting abilities. If you're a pure mage specialization though, the 2-handed staff is the only weapon option. Unless the intent is to allow mages to wield a melee weapon allowing for melee skills in addition to their main spell-casting abilities.

Yeah I would love to have sth like a wand and a shield in combination!

There are none today

Caster weapon slots used today.
- 2hd staff
- offhand catalyst

The offhand catalyst allows for hybrid caster builds.. but is more limiting then the ranger/melee hybrid builds. Agree caster hybrid needs some redesign love.

I personally like the idea of a wand. It sounds like the correct solution for caster hybrid builds
- wand/shield
- wand/melee (sword, dagger, etc) builds willpower at range, and rage in melee.
- wand/gun ...this wouldn't work. conflicting builders with ranged attacks.

Note: ranged/shield hybird = shotgun effect. which is basicly a short ranged cleave, like a sword. But you can use gun abilities. Perhaps wand/shield should do the same but allow for some spell abilities. like having a Lightsaber mageblade. Sword effect that builds willpower instead of rage.

Of course this addition of a wand would make the current catalyst design near obsolete. Hmmm..maybe make the catalyst come with a random mage version of a shield. example: 10% chance to reflect 30% damage from element attacks/spells...or some other cool effect that will make people want to equip it instead of a wand. ooooh, maybe cost reduction on rage/willpower abilities.
