Default Swarm capability eval please

I'm considering giving EQ another try with my SK and need to get up to speed. Swarming seems to be my best option. But I'm nowhere near high level enough, I know. I'd like to get some feedback on how well I could do it, or what I'd need. No Magelo, so here's a rundown:

Level 90
Full T4 Lucid
Buffed AC of approx 6100
Epic 2.0
CA38, CS33, no Delay Death
675 resists from MPG trials but no Defiance AA
Double Riposte 2/6
Shield Block 12 (max minus VoA)
Flurry 2/9
Knight's Adv maxed
Knight's Return Strike 1
Mortal Coil 2/12
Soul Abrasion max
Speed o.t. Knight 13/18
Steadfast 4/8
Theft of Life 15/19
Touch o.t. Cursed 18/27
Touch o.t. Wicked max

(Edit: Just realized i posted this in the wrong board. Oh well)

You forgot the list of what zones you have successfully swarmed and the mob count of your best swarm to date. Don't have those? oh well...

You can swarm [___This____] many. In (insert zone here).

And ffs, max out MC, that will help you out with swarming more than anything. As well as Visage (at least first level)

lvl 90 Is most people's beza, zeka or mech gaurdian. Some people start going to kaesora Library but think you're a lil under AA for that, full Lucid is good at least. Not sure what your off slots are like.

Max MC and Double riposte yesterday and knights return strike

Your level isnt killing you, your non swarming centric AA choice is whats killing you

Your going to have a hard time swarming without those AA

and Spell casting reinforcement maxed

Spell casting mastery helps a heap too

you also didnt list what Vets wrath is at? Another important swarming AA

Every new swarming thread makes me wish they would nerf swarming. People who cant use search makes me a sad panda.

Seriously this topic has been covered to death in dozens of threads. Try doing some research here first (HI SEARCH) then try swarming, if you get crazy xp then huzzah you dont need to make a thread, if you die then do more research and try again.

THIS TOPIC HAS BEEN COVERED TO DEATH UNLESS YOU CONTRIBUTE NEW INFORMATION DO NOT START A NEW THREAD. EVERY QUESTION YOU HAVE EVER THOUGHT OF OR ASKED HAS BEEN ANSWERED ALREADY.

I think your best bet at 90 would be fort mech.

I haven't. This is new to me. I'd have to go to lowbie abandoned zones with high agro to practice the basics.

BTW, my AA choices were clouded by the AA guide here. :\ Look up the grades for MC and DR and KRS.

Swarming and actually playing the game require almost antithetical skillsets.
