Well im starting a mage, and it will be ice, now the question about gear...
crystal +8 or crimson +7 (though ill have to left enough stat points to use dd helmet)
Dual ROM or dual shio (both +0) or maybe one and one?
Oasis+8 or Garp +7 or Glacier Erenion +8 ( any is ok, though GE and Oasis should be a little more expensive)
Also i might be able to get skelly belt or something similar to it, but for now this are my options, in you're opinion which build will do the higher dmg using blade? Remember it's for DCz.
