Default Fou Lou's Mages/Wizards Building, Leveling and Equipment Guide.

-= Fou Lou's Magician and Wizard Classes Guide =-

I. Introduction.

The Magician and Wizards of course, uses magic to attack enemies. Their magic is very strong, and will usually kill an enemy with one spell or few. Leveling process with wizard or Mage the fastest one in the game. However, the spell can take a bit of time to cast, and a bit of time to recover the SP. You will no need a costly equipment for a mage in a start of the road, so they are one of the best choises for your 1st character in Ragnarok. But careful, you could screw a whole build with only one wrong click, and if you screw a build you will screw your character, and this will force you to restart. You will never be bored of playing as mage also. But if you will decide to play as mage, you will have to learn many hard tricks such as Vertical Firewall, elemental combos and many more. If you going to be a great wizard you will need to train your micro control of your character, because you will need to gather many of enemies, correcting them for your spells by walking around them ect. So Mages/Wizards are the most hardest classes to play.


II. Mage/Wizard Stats Build.
  • Starting as Novice with: 9 Agi, 9 Dex, 9 Int.
  • Dex Wizard Order: 99 Int than 99 Dex.
  • Agi WIzard Order: 99 Int, than 80 Agi, than 10-25 Vit, than rest in Dex.

III. Wizard and Mage Quests.

Magicians.

Introduction:
After gaining full insight of all the elements existing in this world, they found a small string of magic power inside, waiting to be awaken. After training and disciplining with the utmost effort, they has grown to be a respectable Mage.

With much knowledge and intelligence, they was able to figure out ways to overpower an enemy by learning about the enemy ahead of time and planing appropriately - and with this ability has overcome many different situations and obstacles. One day, after reading the notice recruiting adventurers by the king, feeling the necessity of a Mage in any adventure, they decided to join the of adventure. Others always see the studying and researching image of them, and because of the ability to think straightforwardly and make cold, but necessary judgements, colleagues tend to think that they has 'no emotions'. However, in real life they are a sincere person who likes flowers.

Magicians Quest:
You can change jobs to a Mage in the Magic City, Geffen. Apply to a guildsman inside the Magic Academy, located in the 10 o'clock direction of the city. The Mage job change test is used to determine intelligence and memory ability through the making of a mixture in a particluar order. For detailed ingredient information, refer to the bookshelf next to the Mixing Machine. If you succeed in creating the mixture, you will be able to change jobs to a Mage. Once you gather all the materials,
put them in the Mixing Machine. Talk to the Mage guildmember again, after you will mix all ingridients. Requirements are: Novice Class and Job Lv 10.

Wizards.

Introduction:
Devoting their life to Magic even more than a Mage, you can find a big aurora of magic surrounding their body seen on nobody else. One day, after reading the recruiting notice posted by King Tristan III, they sets out to join the group of adventurers to test out the magic they has been researching for so long.

With increased intelligence and magic, Wizards have the ability to wipe out an enemy in battle by casting a spell with the power to cause an enormous amount of damage at once. But because so much of them life was devoted to learning and researching magic, they is not as physically fit as some other job classes. Therefore, long marches and battles may be quite overwhelming.

They usually finds the enemy's weak point from behind and causes chaos by attacking and surprising the enemy, then casts a huge spell to demolish all the enemies at once - thus, helping their teammates.

Wizards Quest:
You can change your job to a Wizard in the upper level of Geffen Tower. Apply to the Guildsman at the top of the Geffen Tower, located in the center of Geffen. Talk to the people as instructed and the job change test will begin. It is crucial to be able to determine a monster's attribute and attack accordingly. If you finish the test in one piece, you will be qualified to change to a Wizard. Requirements are: Mage Class and Job Lv 40 or higher.
  • 1st Part of The Quest: Its pretty simple, you need to collect 5 stones of each elements - Red Blood, Crystal Blue, Green Live and Wind of Verdure. After you collecting them, bring them to the Wizard Guildswoman. NOTE: If you will start the quest with 50 Job Levels of your mage, this part of the quest will be skipped.
  • 2nd Part of The Quest: You need to answer for 10 questions about magic. Pretty simple test because you have unlimited amount of tries.
  • 3rd Part of The Quest: Most Hardest. You need to survive in four elemental rooms. The most hardest are water one. You need to Solo a Mermaid(Obeaune), and kill Marine Sphere are a boss of the room. If you got Phen and Vitata Clips/Earrings/Gloves killing the Obeaune part will be pretty easy. Just zap her with your lightning bolt(s). To kill Marine Sphere you should curse her with your Stone Curse spell, and when you will success, just cast Fire Bolt spell at your max level. Repeat if needed. Doing this, Marine Sphere will not be able to explode (if it will explode you will fail the test). Another way: cast it to the death with LB4 spells. You will need to cast LB4 two times. Works pretty good at 50 job levels. If you will fail, you will be teleported outside of tower, and when you will come to try this test again, you will need to answer for five additional questions.

IX. Other Information, Advices, Warnings and Notes.

Advices for Mages/Wizards:
  • Change to a Wizard at 50 Job Level Only, or you will screw your character. If you can't wait for 50 Job Level, than, probably, Mages/Wizards isn’t your class, and you’ll better get Swordsman or Thief classes. All Mage/Wizards classes generally based on patient of they owners.
  • Get Healing Clip (Clip with Vitata Card) as soon as possible, this thing will make you semi-acolyte mage, and with your SP regeneration speed, healing clip is one of the best gears for Wizard/Mage ever.
  • When you just started to play as Mage, the best thing for your leveling is getting Pupa Carded Armor, Thief Bug Carded Guard and Double Fabre Arc wand. This things will increase your hit points by 1300. And at very beginning of your carrier of Mage you will have about 2000 hit points.
  • Get/Equip Phen Carded Clip/Glove/Earring only after you'll get 99 INT and at last 30 dex. Or you'll cast your Fire Wall spell (and other spells too) to slow.
  • Never put Phen/Vitata ect cards in to Belts. Because of your low strength you will not be able to carry more useful items. You'll not be able to sell them for a good price too, if needed. The best choose (cheap price + good effect) are Clips. But you could (and should if possible) put this card in to Gloves or Earrings they much better than clips.
  • You should get Fire Wall as soon as possible. Because this is simply the best offensive/defensive spell for Mage and even for Wizard.
  • When you will get Fire Wall lvl 8-10, you should start to practice Vertical Firewall Trick. Without this thing you will not be able to level at higher levels fast, and this thing will greatly increase your leveling speed at beginning of your Mage career, when you got less SP, but you gaining levelups each 1-5 monsters (Agriopies).
  • Mages/Wizards are the best class for leeching other classes (like Pure Forger Merchants and Blacksmiths, Supporting Acolytes ect), so if you feel needs for cash, just find a person that looking for leeching and sell your services to that person. You could get up to 1 mil of zeny for each job level of person you are leeching.
  • Use Napalm Beat spell in War of Emperium Siege Times for breaking big spells of your foes. Phen Clip are disabled in War of Emperium Siege Times so there are no way for them to dodge your breaks. Napalm Beat one of the fastest spells in the game and it requires only 8 spell points to cast, so this spell are best for diversion things. It has splash damage also, so it can break casts of few targets if they standing too close to each other. You can use this spell for killing weak and annoying monsters also, like Porings, Thief Bugs, Kukres, Ambernites ect.
  • If you are a Wizard and you want to deal great amount of damage for your enemies, try to find a supporting Sage. They got spell called "Deluge" that allow you to cast Water Ball spell anywhere. But note, that you could cast only two water ball spells from one Deluge.
  • Don’t worry about future Quagmire Spell nerf. This thing will come in iRO not earlier than in 7 months, and before it comes there will be possible to remade your Wizard without deleting him/her because of Advanced Classes arrival.
  • More advices coming soon…

Notes on Mages/Wizards:
  • Effect of Phen Card are disabled in War of Emperium Siege Times.
  • Magic Damage in War of Emperium Siege Times are decreased after Juno update.
  • Fly Wings, Butterfly Wings and Teleportation Clips/Spells are disabled in War of Emperium Siege Times.
  • Most good players in Elite guilds has Marc Carded Armors, so you will not be able to froze them.
  • Mages/Wizards are one of the worst classes in PvP Battles but one of most useful in War of Emperium Siege Times.
  • AGI Mages are big weakness in War of Emperium Siege Times battles. Because they casting too slow, because of this, most of their casts will be interrupted by their enemies. Hunters/Bards/Archers/Dancers and Critical Assassins still hitting AGI Mages/Wizards without Misses.
  • After Quagmire Skill future nerf this skill will be best at 2-3 levels instead of 4-5.
  • More notes coming soon…

Warnings regarding Mages/Wizards:
  • In future, in a PvP / WoE, Hunter's traps and Wizard Quagmire will affect everyone, regardless of enemy or allies. Thanks to Sephael for the list of future skill changes.
  • Napalm Beat Future Changes: Increasing the skill level will increase used SP, but it reduces after-skill usage delay. Thanks to Sephael for the list of future skill changes.
  • Stone Curse Future Changes: Target will remain as a statue for 20 seconds only. If your Stone Curse is above or equal to LV 6, then failing this skill does not waste a Red Gemstone. Thanks to Sephael for the list of future skill changes.
  • Sight: Reduced detecting area to 5x5. Thanks to Sephael for the list of future skill changes.
  • Quagmire Future Changes: AGI / DEX reduced are different based on skill level. If Quagmire is LV 5, it will decrease AGI / DEX by half. Just like Fire Wall, you cannot use Quagmire more than 3 times at once (plus change mentioned above. Thanks to Sephael for the list of future skill changes.
  • Frost Nova Future Changes: This skill will just activate when used (without need to selecting target), and once used, it will attack all enemies within 5x5 cells of where you are standing. It will cause 2/3rds of the damage of Frost Diver of same level, and will freeze them. The casting time does not depend on DEX, and LV 1 would take 8.5 sec, LV 10 would take 4 seconds of casting time. Thanks to Sephael for the list of future skill changes.
  • If you’ll change yourself to a Wizard earlier than you’ll reach Job Level 50, you’ll screw your character completely.
  • More warnings coming soon…

With 87-90 Dex your cast time will be:

LvL 10 LoV: About 5 Seconds.
LvL 10 SG: About 7 Seconds.
LvL 10 Fire Bolt and Jupitel Thunder: About 3-4 Seconds.

At 99 dex with boost to 121 your cast time will be:

LvL 10 LoV: About 1.35 Seconds.
LvL 10 SG: About 2.06 Seconds.
LvL 10 Fire Bolt and Jupitel Thunder: Less than 1 Second.

See the difference?

P.S: Pupa + Thief Bug Egg + 2x Fabre Arc Wand + Matyr Shoes = +1500-1750 HP.

Wizards are generaly made for primary reason:
  • MVPing -- Dex wins out cuz otherwise you can be doing like well over 3x less damage than the other wizards and basicly just wasting your time.
  • WoE -- Dex wins out cuz you can't use Phen so without it you will be doing alot of walking and next to no actual casting because even a novice could keep you from getting your spells off.
  • Just leveling -- Some Vit in a Dex build is okay exclusively for this, but if this is all you do you might be better going for Agi and those builds only get like 20 Vit.

We are talking about wizards here, not knights, so who needs more SP?

Lets calculate:
At 99 Level wizard could have up to 3000+ SP. So Verit will add another 240 SP. But there are no need in 240 additional SP.

At 99 Level wizard could have up to 5000 HP (Pupa 700hp + Thief Bug Egg 400hp + 4x Fabre Cards 400hp + 4 Vit (50 more hp). And 2% of additional HP are 100 HP.

+100 HP for Wizard are better than +240 SP.

In other words:
Matyr: up to 500 HP + 1 AGI.
Verit: up to 400 HP + 240 SP.

I just had to comment on the build. It's a nice one but I would realy like your opinion on the sp rec. spell. Right now I have a level 82 wizard that I solo in barracks2. (I would be a TI but it's an old wizard with a very old build)

INT99/DEXxx

In any case, while soloing I cast vfws and jt the rays. The jokers usualy force me to turn the entire map into a warfield. I always win though, just a side note ^_~

I noticed the huge increase in the sp recovery due to the new formula and was delighted. I thought about wether or not my sp regen 10 was a waste of points. But when soloing there, casting jts and fws I do need to sit down and regen for a short period, just to get my sp back from the bottom.

Btw, this is regarding the UWB Wizard build posted at the top. I saw that you didn't put any into sp recov. but you did get waterball 5 when 4 is more than enough. So to put it out straight, sp recov still needed when soloing ?!

When partying you don't cast that intensily, sure you do but not fws. You mainly limit yourself to HD, SG or LoV. (WB if u got a sage with you)

As I said I would realy like some solid comments and inputs regarding the sp recovery spell in certain lvling conditions. (And don't flame, I did a search and read some of the sp recov information. But as usual people just start blabbering about something else.. going on and on with It's good! It's bad! it's good.. it's bad...)

I'm looking forward to getting some feedback on all of this. Thanks.

when you use sage for WB you want 5 since it's most damage per cast and you are limited by deluge, but yeah if you were just killing penos or drake you would use 4 most the time.

SPR is nothing more than personal choice. If you can handle going without it you should.

Thanks, was nice to see that someone else shared my opinion on sp recovery. And thanks for the input regarding maxing waterball, forgot that you used up the cells inside deluge when casting.

Fou Lou, congrats on the awesome guide! I was tempted to make a guide like this, so we could have a more centralized location for the mage/wizard info everyone should know, but I figured that job would be better suited for you or Sephael. Hopefully this will reach sticky status soon..

I think you have to look over the SW build... You use all 49 x 2 points but only have lv 3 SS....

And try to add a Skill Build Order for a party... If you have a Pneuma Priest, you will be much better off getting your WB 4 first and hit Penos. That would give you our other skills very quickly without continue working as a mage.

Could be nice for finding rare Items, but tuff for levelling... A 5 member party, with only 1 gun... Not so efficient for getting EXP.. Then rather use some Yellow Gems and let the Bard/Dancer do the "Rich Man Mr. Kim", to get 250% EXP for the party.

2 SS as a mage + 3 SS as a wizard = 5 SS which is all you need for SW. Should read the whole thing before you rip into it.

Though I will comment that most SW builds leaves FD at 1, which would free up wizard points to get what ever you wanted...typeicaly maxing Fire Bolt for MVPing and a few levels of IW for taking out Drake.

Ok, in next update I'll make third build with SW but without FD. Anyway I didn’t saw this build in Sticky threads, so it will be useful.

Thanks for comments of all of you.

"Mages/Wizards are worst classes in PvP Battles but one of most useful in War of Emperium Siege Times."


maybe in iRO but here in pRO Wizards are as deadly as any other class in pvp.. and i do pvp a lot w/ my lvl 97 wizard. i just find vit knights a pain to kill coz of the insanely high hp they have ( unless the fool uses marc armor and lands in my SG10 w/c is suffed )

There are mistake.

The correct one are: "Mages/Wizards are one of the worst classes in PvP Battles but one of most useful in War of Emperium Siege Times."

- Fixed.


This is because Wizards works better in team or when they got some of time to cast their spells. At WoE they got that time, because there are many other targets on screen and its too hard for Wizard’s enemies to concentrate on one Wizard. + There are always someone, who supporting wizard. Healing him/her, blessing for great improvement in speed ect.

While you are fighting with single opponent who concentrated directly on you and builded for ranged attacks you will lose to him/her. If you PvPing with weak (or weaker than you) enemy, than you will probably win for no doubt, but if you and your enemy will be both pros, than he/she probably will win the duel.

So if you are going to be the mage, the best thing to do is concentrate on WoE, MvP and Mob killing, than PvPing…


-----------------
Most Hardest Enemies in PvP (all with protection from freeze and from lightning or ice magic):

Spear VIT Knight or Crusader.
Monks/Priests with Agi Up (for faster movement) and Spells/Combos.
Hunters, Bards, Dancers.
Rogues.

They all carry many of white potions and other healing stuff, but you simply can't carry many of healing items. And with damage they dealing to you, healing clip are almost useless, so you need to heal yourself with whites, to heal faster and while casting.

I like the first build a lot, but Id really like to abuse the SWall skill, i saw one of the builds and you get 10 SW during the wiz days, but lets say I can level a mage disregarding the skill order, like i can whack everything to death with a rod, what would be the best build during mage and then wiz? I would also like LoV since it's so sexy :P

Sephael, thanks.
Ok I'll PM them after few new versions. Because I want to add some commends regarding each build, and update with comments (and more items) my equipment guide...

LegendsEnd,
If you want to get LoV you should go without SW (first build), because as SW you are wasting 11 points of skills (NB7 + SS5 - NB1) and you just coudn't lose more skill points without affection of your build. If you want to get LoV with SW you will need to sacrefice another 4 points (LB4 + TS1 - LB1) and with this sacrefice you will make a big weakness in your build. + you will need atlast 1 another skill point to get LoV.

Why would u want more than lvl 1 lightning bolt and thunderstorm if you're gonna have JP and not even have Meteor storm. Why not allocate it elsewhere?
