Well i've been confused lately about whether mages attack depends on elemental damage or the ap, i always had the idea that novas/range skills depends on elemental damage and the staff hit skill (42-72) depends on the staff's ap
Is that true? if yes, then why do all nova mages purchase expensive staffs when they could just get a wood staff +10 for the elemental damage.
and does it matter if a mage doesn't have high MP but has a good high ele/ap staff?
or maybe a better slow/stun rate?
I'm mainly asking about Nova town mages.
