Well let me tell you something about the slow/stun rate from my own experience (4 years playing DCZ mage. both intel and paper) Intel didn't help at all when stunning and/or slowing. as paper mage every single time (95% actually) i cast ice/light spell on an enemy paper mage or BP (not even gonna mention rogues cause most ardream rogues got 00 resistance lol) i would slow/stun them. When i attacked intel priest/warrior even intel mage thing was different. i didn't actually compared number of times i managed to slow intel priests as either intel/paper mage but on rough terms it was the same! the only thing that intel has got to do with slowing/stunning is on yourself because it will raise the resistance. THAT'S IT!.
Now when it comes to damage i can also tell you that with blade attacks the most important thing is the AP on your staff. and when it comes to range skills it's base MP. once you maxed base MP then extra elemental and staff AP comes into play. yes i have also played lvl 80 and lvl 69 mage so i know what am talking about. I can also tell you that Fire>Ice>lightning. and of course the different will be higher while your enemy's resistance is the lowest.
so setting aside toysoldier's arrogant personality and aggresive answers... pretty much everything he said is true.[/b]
wat u are saying right there is that u slowed the same as paper mage than u did as intel mage...
and toy soldier said that only thing that effect slow effect is ap...
as paper mage u would prolly use lyacoan
compared to intel where u would maybe use elixir..
the the difference in ap for those to staffs is huge.
so if u say that u slowed the same as paper and intel
ur not just disproving int as a factor in slow rate but also ap...
and toy we all know hardest hitting mages has bf +3 rings and cursed weapon +8
and that ap of staff is the biggest factor in damage..
but im looking for proof on slow rates though
interesting topic though
