Hello guys. Because of the 24 hours maintence I thought about doing an Elementalist guide.
I know, I know… there is a lot of guides focusing on this, but the thing is: I’ll try to do a good and really detailed guide. So, lets start. =]
First of all, why choose wizard as a damage dealer?
-Has the biggests AoE skills of the whole game
-Can do heavy damage against bosses and ground monsters
-Has nice outfits < yea, this is important.
- Important things you need to know
Your only class path as a damage dealer
Differently of Archer, Wizard has only one path if you choose to be a damage dealer which is Wizard C3 / Elementalist C3 / Warlock C1. Of course, there are others wizard paths that still can deal damage, but not as heavy as this one.
Your leveling experiencie will be painful until you reach the power spike
But don’t give up. I know how painful it is seeing archers and swordsmans ksing you, and taking years until you kill a quest monster, but don’t give up, your reward will be gratifying.
This is a PvE focused guide
I’ve never played PvP, so I can’t recommend this build for PvP purpouse.
If you still reading, probably you wanna be a badass wizard with tons of damage, so lets start the real guide.
1. Skill tree
Which skills are recommended to get first?
One thing that I think we need talking about in every guide, is how distribute our skills, which one take first and which one take last. I’ll separate this per class level.
1 point in energy bolt (EB) - Your spammable damage skill until you reach Wizard c3, you do not need investing more points because the sp cost increase is really high.
1 point in earthquake (EQ) - You put only one point because it scalling is really bad, and you won’t use that much.
1 point in lethargy - after learning, upgrade the Lethargy: Additional Damage atribute until reach max level as soon as possible. You’ll heave a boost of 100% Auto Attack damage against monsters affected by lethargy, and belive me, you’ll spam AA as hard as EB
5 points in sleep - Heavy CC, time and hit counts scale with level. Yes please!
Save the points left.
Probably the most painful experience you will have. But do not give up. You’re almost reaching your first power spike.
5 points in sleep
5 Points in surespell - useful when casting Hail, Meteor, Electrocute
You can choose puting 2 points in EB or don’t.
Save the points left.
Yay! You have reached your first power spike. Now you’ll have a taste of how good this build is.
5 Points in Magic Missile - Your main damage until Elementalist 3. Upgrade the damage attribute at least 20%
5 Points Quick Cast (QC) - Our entirely build is based around this beuaty here. Giving you 50% reduced cast which is really useful for elementalist’s skills, and 50% magic damage with Quick Cast: Magic Damage attibute, upgrade until reach max as soon as possible.
5 points in Sleep
You can put poins in EB until reach lvl 10~8.
YOUR FIRST OUTFIT *dancingman.gif
Magic Missle keep being your main damage, but now we have learn two others damage skills, which both scales highly with level.
1 Point in hail
5 Points in electrocute
4 Points in hail - I really recommend put it damage atribute at least 20%.
You can put one point in prominence if you want, but it is a weird skill and you’ll need remove one point of meteor when reach elementalist C3
Save the points left
Almost dude, almost!
1 Point in Freezing Sphere - A good filler skill
1 Point in Meteor
5 Points in Electrocute - I really recommend put it damage atribute at least 20%
5 Points in Hail - Upgrade Hail: Freeze attribute until reach max level as soon as possible.
Do you now what is power spike? You will.
5 Points in Frost Cloud - You’ll destroy everything ~except flying mobs~ with this skill. Get as soon as possible. Upgrade it atribute damage whenever you have extra silver.
1 point in Rain - When there’s a lot of fire mobs or to upgrade electrocute damage
4 Points in Electrocute - Why 4 and not 5? Because the number of targets the skill can reach does not upgrade. Only it damage.
5 Points in Hail
Put the left points in Meteor
Warlock C1 ~Under construction
I didn’t reach Warlock yet (i’m 219/13 right know) so I can’t give too much information about skills, but fear not, I’ll upgrade this section as soon as possible. =)
2. Stats points
Your main stat will be int, Because well… you know, right?
Your second main stat, will be con. Because your skills has high damage, and normally you’ll take all the aggro from mobs.
You can choose distribute in a scale of 4:1 or 3:1 Int:Con
When I’m good to stop puting points in con, and change into full int?
This is a good question, and probably I can’t answer with 100% accuracy. But why? First, I didn’t reach maximum level (yet), and there is a lot of content like new maps, monsters, dungeons etc to IMC add. So is really hard to calculate how a perfect stat distribution is.
What I can answer is, you need to have at least 10.000 hp+ because after lvl 200, monsters becomes harder, and they hit like a truck, a fast truck loaded with quimical bombs.
You need start thinking about equipament post 90+. Why? Because there’s no really good equipament that really worth it before that. So, use whatever you want until reach the main level equipaments like:
Lvl 90 - Arde Dagger
Lvl 120 - Petamion, If you’re going to grind in Demon Prison: Grynas Rod
Lvl - 170 Catacumbs Club, Wizard Bracelet, Roxona Boots, Glove, Robe and Pants, Wizard Bracelet, Max petamion
Lvl - 220 - To be updated
I’ll put all gems that can be useful for this build, but not necessary. Except if you want hit 10 monsters with electrocute. Than you’ll need take one point of meteor, and put into electrocute, plus it gem, you’ll be able to hit 10 targets =)
Temple Slave Mage Gem for Magic Missile
Stumpy Tree Magician Gem for Electrocute
Stoulet Mage Gem for Hail
Black Pawnd Gem for Meteor
Ticen Magician Gem for Frost Cloud.
Again, these gems aren’t necessary. But all these can improve your DPS, mostly frost cloud and electrocute gem (if you do what I said up here).
4. General Tips
Buy token as soon as possible for the exp bonus and +1 enter in dungeons, mercenary, etc
Wizard C2 is the most difficult class to level. So, use pardoner buffs+squire’s weapon enhance to improve your leveling experience. (thx fw.albero14)
