So this is my idea for tankmage which I will use in EUKO:
-STR for shield (90 for dread probably)
-Enough mp for wood +8 or 0 mp and reduce wizard staff
So this build may appear somewhat squishy, but it is reasonably cheap, and the bonus ac from high hp stat is nice. Putting 160 points on INT and 102 on MP seems like wasted points on a tank mage. It's possible that at a higher level I would stat higher on int/mp for a decent staff (i.e cardboard), but I find I hardly need to blade unless I am in a small pvp party.
I have a few questions though, as I haven't played KO in a while, certainly not the patch that EUKO will be. Basically, what will my slow be like with this build? I know INT had little to do with slow these days. How well can you slow without a staff? (i.e. in USKO)
