I'm going to play a 61lvl mage that atm is skilled as ice/ lr
And what i'm going to do...is random exp.(with random i mean i'm not premium atm and i wont smoke much hours of my time for playing it..considering the state of KO now.)
Moreover, even if i'll log on server1..i wont going pk that much.(almost never...due to massive hackers..lack of jewels and so on..)
So i'm not really interested in pk.
What i'm looking for is a ice mage exp machine able to kill things fastly even soloing.
1)So i would like to know a nice staff for exping.
I've readen many topics and probably things are uncertain about them and everyone got his opinion ...Anyway, what staff will you prefere and why?
I must do a precision: Atm i use rented items...but honeslty i found the new magic shells with both hp and mp bonus really cool and usefull. ( especially considering they are easely droppable and really cheap if you buy them)
I know that higher is the ap of a staff higher will be your dmg. That sounds natural.
But i even heard that the elemental dmg of a staff counts much more with the aoe skilz.
Can you confirm this?
Therefore my idea was going to buy a nice LE possibly +8.
Nice bonus (hp,mp) and a nice elem.
Considering it requires low int..it could be wise to restat as crimsoned mage.Or maybe crystal armor too, pumping a bit more or mp or hp.
My second option is a the BF staff called Garp ( lol not 100% sure about its name ^_^ garp is the one based on ice elem.dmg right? )
2)About jewels...i saw shios prices are low as hell. and it's not so much hard to buy dual shio+1 or even dual +2. ( if i start selling random shits i should be able to buy even dual shio+2)
As neck...i guess wp or ep.
About earrings... i was thinking to make some shits like...16mp 3hp
LOL people really give that +9 earrings mp almost for free...and considering i'm mainly exp oriented..i think i had a decent idea.
For belt...well...dunno...maybe quest belt is more then decent
3) I noticed it's pretty hard to find an exp party for 70- mages
So probably i'm going to exp even solo. That's not a prob.
Uruk trons aoe are decent exp and fast.
Moreover...RLB/cz treants/ancient spot are simply perfect.
And right now i remember when i used to solo or just with an other mage
a whole harpy spot in cz.
So my setup has to be adapted at that plan too.
So a basic decent hp/ac is quite a must i think. ( That's an other point for LE and his hp bonus. i think)
Then...i dont remember at what lvl..but if i'm not wrong at 69 you can have dual nova.
So...i was thinking that...considering i'm going just to exp..
well...dual nova (ice-flame) could be a nice try.
But then...i think i should use a ron's staff ...due to its 3 elemental dmgs.
What ya think about that thing of dual novas ? in spite of manster?
4) i need an mp rec staff. many around...lupus..lobo..DO they really work?
I mean...is it a good idea buying them for recharging mana?
And what about hp rec staff?
What i know is they works great with aoe skills. More are the enemies you hit at same time...ofcourse...more you recharge.
The 30 mp rec bonus sounds nice.
5) I remember a 1handed staff...that went out for holloween..or somthing like that. If i'm not wrong it's the only 1 handed staff.
Thinking of a potential idea..of switching in Tank-shielded mage for pk...Does that 1h staff helps ? dunno...still a decent stun/slow rate [ considering the players wont using tbl edited files...."YE LOL, ALL " ] or is just for looking cool?
I mean...i know its ap is probably super low and suring wearing a shield + that staff is better than wearing just the shield. but...well does that staff help in anyway in pk?
Sorry for the LONGEST monolog i have ever written..(and you...have readen...) but any answer / critic / suggestion will be really really welcome.
