Guide to Pale Masters: Avoiding Light damage[edit]

Pale Master is such a nice PrE for non-WF Wizards who lack quick self healing ability. However, while leveling, you encounter mobs that deal huge light damage on you and possibly one-shot you while you are in undead forms. Thus you cannot rely on these forms all the time and should know when to turn them off or refrain from using them in the quest.

Pale Master Undead Forms[edit]

Undead form AP and level requirement Benefit Penalty

Light Resistance items[edit]

Items with Light Resistance are far rarer than other energy resistance items, as it is only available on a very small list of named items. The only one that can be used before level cap is raid loot, which is unlikely to be available for 1st life wizards.

  • A Relic of a Sovereign Past - Dwarven acolytes. Avoid them like a plague. "Caster tunnel" especially can really be dangerous for Pale Masters.
