Default Solo gearing options for a wizard?

In the 50s right now and I'm trying to improve my wizard as best I can on my own. I don't really have any friends, and I've gone through 3 guilds trying to find a real home with no luck.

Right now my game time consists of either killing OOT sisters and WK/QH guards for money, and the occasional quadding session in CS for exp. Money is coming slowly and steadily, but it'll probably be many months of work before I can afford any single decent item.

In the meantime I'd love to know if there are any good items I can quest or camp for as a solo 50ish wizard. I had recently gotten shawl 4 and the Seal of Thoridain, though I don't think I will really be able to go further as shawl 5 pieces can only be acquired in Velks. Any suggestions on things I can go for?

Sanctum has like 17 guilds, surely 1 would work for you.

Don't know what that is, but I'm guessing that's a blue thing. Sadly I'm on green, and at this point I don't think any guild is going to work for me here.

Enchanter is the one class I've honestly tried to like in this game. I love all the cool flashy shit they get and multiple times I wanted to make one into a main. Never got past level 15 though. The last time I tried, I was twinked pretty well and it still took 50% health and 100% mana just to kill two bandits.

But that aside, knowing all this stuff just kind of kills my interest in the class.

-It's a genuinely tough class with a very high skillcap.
-Even the best of enchanters die regularly.
-It's difficult to do tradeskills with given that we're not allowed to put our points into INT. My enchanter had as hard of a time doing tailoring as my ranger did.
-The epic is gatekept to hell and back by the cartels controlling Verina and Drozlin.
-It's a very popular class nonetheless and might have raid stacking issues.

All of that is why I have a tough time getting into an enchanter. But this thread isn't about rerolling into another class or trying to find a guild. It's about finding cool soloable no-drop Seal of Thoridain style items that my wizard could work toward. Does anyone have any suggestions on that front?

I don't really know what items you have, so I will just list some things off:

https://wiki.project1999.com/Wenglawks_Manly_Purse This is a pretty easy quest, and you get a nice bag from it. You will either need to get Kael faction, or have someone MQ the mechanical net you give to the siren. You should be able to solo the CS sirens for scales.

https://wiki.project1999.com/The_Mystic_Cloak - You probably know this one, but just throwing it out.

https://wiki.project1999.com/Titan_Samples_(good) - This gives you some good INT pieces, astral legs of the titan.

https://wiki.project1999.com/The_Velium_Focus - never done this one before, but i think its doable solo. EDIT: Looks like the last part may need a group actually.

https://wiki.project1999.com/Helssen...smatic_Trinket - Also needs Kael faction, and this is more of an Enchanter item. But +55 raw mana isn't bad if you have 200+ INT already.

https://wiki.project1999.com/Rough_Silver_Chain - Not a bad alternative to necklace of superiority/4+ dragon necks.

Appreciate the suggestions but none of those actually seem doable, sadly.

Purse and trinket are as you say, both Kael faction. I'm pretty deep in the dwarf and dragon rabbit hole unfortunately. Also dunno how much success I'll have as a wizard trying to reach the 6th floor of ToFS.

Mystic cloak is nice, but I actually have the cloak of the maelstrom already. The only thing I've been able to master in this game is acquiring a collection of 1-2k EC tunnel trash items. Likewise with the titan samples, though the leggings actually would be nice. I have a better cloak and robe already. Can the gorilla and panda be soloed by a wizard though? Panda doesn't seem to be rootable or snarable from what I read on the wiki.

Rough silver chain would be cool too. Dunno if that's better than an amulet of insight, but from reading that quest, it'd be impossible anyway because I can't forage? Could be wrong there but that's what it seems like.

Velium focus is one I would actually really love. The geonids are awesome and I would love to raise faction with them at some point, but yep it's as you say, I would need group help for that.

It's depressing when so much of the game requires help and you don't have it, seriously.

Drachnid Thyxl is an option to the phenocryst. Can always check the hills in Dreadlands nearby Frontier Mountains entrance. If the mob is up and has it itíll be visible on it. Ask someone to help ya kill it then.

Also donít reroll if youíre looking to raid. Through raiding you can get the items and plat you desire. Grouping? Well, not so much. You DO want to get VP-keyed so you can start doing those camps.

At 50 iirc it is cobalt scar thatís your goto quad location. You may be able to quad kelethin guards too at that level.

Wizards donít need gear aside from some basic int stuff and jboots and flux staff. after that resists and epic, and even manna robe or manastone if you wanna be fancy.

If you wanna group or solo dungeons wizard isnít the class for you. Enchanter, necro and shaman is what you want then. And as for enchanters, itís only as hard as you make it. It can be safe (ish) or super dangerous.
