Sha26wn (Ares Server) Detailed Mage Guide
There are very few mage guides out there, and most are very out dated. Here is my mage guide for the most popular builds, pk, lvling, etc.
[b]Level 80 Skills:
Igzination: This is the 1st of 2 fire skills you get at 80. It does incredible damage. It is a single target skill not an aoe. The best thing about this skill is its range. It is incredible how far someone can be away from you and you can still hit them.
Vampiric Fire: This is the second skill and one of my favorites. It almost makes any vs. unfair. It drains 3,000 mana from someone and adds that 1,500 to your hp. If you do this twice in a fight with your instantly magic skill you can beat babaíd lvl 80 warriors or sins.
Freezing Distance: Most people in-game just refer to it as ď80 iceĒ. This skill can mean the difference between your party being able to take on 1 party or 3. You freeze your enemy similar to stun except they blink as if they have entered a new zone. You cannot hit them, they cannot town or be tpíd away. If you are fighting a party with 2 or more priests you can freeze 2 of them and goodbye party. The time they are frozen seems to depend sometimes its longer than others. Also it can fail but not to often. It seems to fail on mages and bpís more often. I doesnít fail to often on warriors or int priests.
Blink: This is the lightning level 80 skill. This allows you to teleport your self across the map in the direction you are facing. This skill is great for getting into the opposing nations castle in invasion. It is also good to get out of a tough situation in normal pk. It is helpful to use in Bifrost to get your party to Greeds first. Again you can use instantly magic with it and tp twice.
Well thatís it folks, I hope it is helpful to someone and I know it was long but the mage is a very complex character. Feel free to add your comments or disagree with anything. I know some people will have different opinions as far as what jewelry is better when and why, and thatís fine. Everyone has their own opinion when it comes to that sort of thing.
On a side note can someone maybe help me post this on the ko forum. I cant seem to post it. Not sure why. Thnx.
