Well, you've found the right place! Just keep on reading and i'll aquaint you with everything you need to know about the magician. If you use the 'find' function, you can use the numbers in the 'content' section to jump to their respective places, as this guide is rather long. THIS GUIDE IS WRITTEN WITH THE INTENTION OF PAST EXPERIENCE OF FLYFF, BUT NOT EXPERT EXPERIENCE. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- 78493 -=CHANGE LOG=- 1-1-08: Guide's first version, 1.0 1-12-08: Guide's second version, 1.2. Added a changelog, fixed some grammar errors, and added a new section that regards magician PVP -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- 39606 -=STATS OF THE MAGICIAN=- Well first, you will NEVER need STR and DEX. Below are common builds. 1. 50 STA X INT 15 STR 15 DEX 2. X STA 15 INT 15 STR 15 DEX 3. 15 STA X INT 15 STR 15 DEX 4. X STA 75 INT 15 STR 15 DEX Build 1 is known as the 'STA Int' aoer build, because it is a build an INT aoer would use, so that in case they get hit, they won't die in 1 hit. Build 2 is known as the 'Crucio' build, and is used by mages that level using the 'Crucio' build from level 60-80. Build 3 is known as the 'Full Int' build, and is when a full hit-and-run strategy is used to AOE, or Satanology is used to root the enemy down and attack them with a torrent of spells. Build 4 is known as the 'Hybrid' build, which basically is everything thrown into one. There's not much else to it other than that, but as you can see, each build is vastly different than each other, and having only 2 stats to focus on makes them very dynamic characters. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- 75389 -=EQUIPMENT OF THE MAGICIAN=- Magicians specialize in dealing large damage, but slowly, at the penalty of Health Points and Defense Power. First of all, you will need to adequitely equip your mage if you're going to get anywhere at all. But you will need to equip your mage based on your stat build. After you have picked a build, which are in a section above, you can decide what you will use. At low levels, you have two options: 1. Use staves 2. Use wands This is an interesting decision because using staves greatly lowers defense, because you sacrifice the use of shields, but you do much higher damage, albeit it is only a slight difference until the you get your final tier of spells. Most mages use the item that they will use for their future 2nd job class, but that is not the best thing to do! In fact, it is the opposite thing you should do! The truth is, neither is better! You can use whatever you want. If you use a high INT build, you will do unseen damage (~3K at level 30) but will only have around 450 HP. Not good, you can easily get killed in a single critical hit, especially on monsters with rage mode. So, you can use a staff to push even upwards to 4K damage around level 45, or use a wand and do about 3.25K at level 45, with a much needed Avalon Shield or a standard NPC shield. You can either complement your current build focus stat, or not. Just pick what suits you. After you pick your weapon, you have two more things to think about: 1. Cost 2. Rarity Obviously if you are new at this game both will be a problem, so I suggest just doing quests to get penya to buy the latest NPC version ofyour equipment. Updated blues are perfectly fine until level 65+. However, if you got the cash I suggest investing in some statted blue staves with a few +es on them, or getting a clean green one. If you get a green one, don't be surprised when you outlevel it fast before level 45. I don't suggest buying greens until level 30, or even 45, because with a partner healer you can outgrow them so fast you won't get much use out of it. Once you decide that, you got your weapon done. Now you can either do one of two final things: 1. Element it 2. Leave it as it is Obviously if you use elemental magic you will want to element it. Normally, if you use a meele weapon or such, you will want to element it to the element that the mob you're fighting is weak to. Not true for mages. Just element it to whatever skill you're using, which should usually be what they're weak too. Also, if you use wands, DO NOT elemnt them!!! Elementing wands hurts thier damage, which is another reason staves do more damage! Now, you got your weapon sorted out. Don't worry, getting armor is a lot easier. Getting armor uses the same setup except you don't need to worry about the first step, there's only one kind of armor for mages. Just figure out if you want to spend a lot of cash upgrading it and elementing it, or not. Keep in mind you will always element your suit to the element strong against the mob you're fighting, which, once again, is usually the element you'll level with. I suggest staying away from green armor until 45, because the defense increase from green armor is minimal and the low level mage armor just dosen't do much good. Oh, and the mage equipment dosen't look too good at low levels, but it gets better at higher levels. After level 60, you can just use the weapon suited for your class, and continue elementing it. After level 75, greens are imparative. Especially the level 75 Myuran/Myurian set for Elementers and the level 90 set for Psykeepers. Staves are cheaper at higher levels, but until level 75 the cost is about the same for both. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- 97654 -=SKILLS OF THE MAGICIAN=- Using powerful skills, magicians can do the most damage in the game at once with the exception of Billposters and full strength Jester criticals. When you make the job advancement at level 15, dump all the skill points into Mental Strike. I highly suggest using a staff in lower levels like I said to maximize damage, because you will die fast if you don't kill them first. With greens and full INT and good buffs, you can whack off 2K a hit easily with SF, and this is without elements. Even if you're going Psykeeper, use elements when you get them. Even if you're going Elementer, max Mental Strike. Don't sweat it, you get plenty of skill points. Don't bother even getting the elemental skills until level 30, because that is when you will make an important choice, and even a level 10 first tier elemental skill is much weaker than a level 20 Mental Strike, and you don't want to waste skill points, so level 10 is even too high. After 30, it changes. You will need to choose 2 elements to get to level 60 from 30 with.I suggest Water and Fire. Why? Because, if you use a skill, and it has an effect that lasts 5 seconds after using it, that is a chain effect. Just cast the element opposite of that one. So, bind Fire Strike level 20 into an F key, and bind 2 maxed Spring Waters into the action slot. For every 2 Spring Waters, cast Fire Strike once. You get an approximate 30% damage increase during an element chain. Plus, quite a few mobs are weak to water and fire from level 30-60. Anyways, kill monsters 5 levels over you using this tactic. Even on mobs that are neutral element (Thunder, Rock, Wind) it'll still do more damage than the element strong against them. So, get the minimum required spell levels for the two skill's prerequisites (Fire Strike and Spring Water) and max the final 'tier' After level 60, it changes again. By the way, if you want to max Blinkpool, feel free too, it's a nice warp skill, and with only 2 elements maxed you can max it too. You can probably max the second to last earth tier too, and forget about Rooting. Use the reskill you got from job change. Now, i'll split into two parts. Psykeeper and Elementer. [Psykeeper] Get Mental Strike to level 10, Max Ice Strike, Max Blinkpool, Max Demonology, Max Crucio, Max Psychic Bomb. All at level 60. Then, at 65, Max Satanology, Maximum Crisis, and Spirit Bomb. At 70, Max Psychic Wall. At 75, max Psychic Square. The only non self-explanatory Psykeeper skills are Crucio and Spirit Bomb. Name: Crucio - Level Req: 60 - Skill Req: None - Req. MP: ~60 - Description: Reflect damage X2 to the enemy When casted, it will cast a self buff on yourself. Now, all non-skill damage given to you is reflected to the target that dealt it at a X2 rate during the buff duration. Name: Spirit Bomb - Level Req: 65 - Skill Req: Psychic Bomb level 5 - Req. MP: ~100 - Description: Attack the enemy with mental power based on MP This skill is misleading. It attacks the enemy with high, non-elemental damage based on your remaining percentage MP in your MP pool. There are specific damage thresholds with it, with each one doing a certain % of the skill's base damage. Maximum MP does not affect this, only your current % of total MP pool does. [Elementer] Get your old skills back to their old level. Except, instead of water and fire, do the same setup EXCEPT for water and fire. Leave those element branches out, as the elementer versions of those skills are below par, and most level 60+ monsters are strong against those. Also, instead of maxing the final tier of those elements, get them to level 7. And, get Rooting to level 3. These are the pre-requisites for your Elementer skills. Max Blinkpool, and get Mental Strike to level 5. Now, Max the level 60 Elementer 1 Vs 1 skills. Might seem crazy, but trust me, on the current skill system, you get plenty points left over without Water and Fire. By level 110, all your skills will be maxed anyways, even water and fire. Once you get to level 65, max the thunder, earth, and wind skills. These skills are area of effect. Thunder is a skill that reduces the target's phsyical defense for 4 seconds, and kills all mobs nearby. Wind slows the enemy down by 50% in movement speed for a WHOLE MINUTE on full int! Wind will also kill any mobs nearby the currently selected target, so it is the best one for hit and run. Earth acts the same as wind, but has no special effects. At level 70, Max the two Dual Element AOE skills you can get. Neither have an elemental attribute since they are dual element, and neither have a speical effect. But get them anyways. Also, get the elemental masteries for wind, earth, and thunder. These last about 3 minutes on standard Elementer builds and increase damage by ~20% for the respective elements when casted. At level 75, you will not be able to acquire Avalanche, but it is the same as the level 70 dual element skills, just slightly stronger. However, it has a 30% chance to stun when maxed, so I highly suggest getting this for pvp or tight spots later on, when you have water skills. Max water after the other elements are maxed, and then fire last. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- 69482 -=LEVELING THE MAGICIAN=- Magicians will use powerful 1 on 1 skills in the lower levels, but by level 75+ ALL magicians will aoe, except for Satanology Psykeepers, which eventually aoe after level 105, trust me. Nobody escapes aoe. Aoe = Area Of Effect. It is when a skill can hit multiple targets. MAGICIAN AOE TECHNIQUE Basically, you use use the first tier ice spell (Whether you are a Psykeeper or Elementer, just dump 2 points into it, 1 level. It's nice for gathering because it's ranged and fast.) On a mob. Let it take some steps towards you, then do the same to another. Repeat until you have a mob following you. Then, if you're INT, hit and run with windfield for mages, or tank them while being healed by a healer for stamina elementers and psykeepers. Int build psykeepers don't aoe because Maximum Crisis, the aoe, only hits mobs around you, which only works for tankers. MAGICIAN 1 ON 1 TECHNIQUE Even full Inter's wont run in 1 on 1, it's not worth it. Just grab a healer and nuke things with your most powerful spell combos. If you're an Int psykeeper, you will still not run. Just root the enemy with Satanology at level 65 once you get it. Before that, just tank things. VAGRANCY Level 1-2 Kill Aibatts Level 2-4 Kill Mushpangs Level 4-6 Kill Burudengs Level 6-8 Kill Pukepukes Level 8-10 Kill Demians Level 10-12 Kill Doridomas Level 12-14 Kill Lawolves Level 14-15 Kill Feferns During Vagrancy, use NO skill points, and dump all your points into STR. You get a free restat at level 15. Don't bother with the low level rare items. With a healer friend giving you buffs, you can get to level 15 in a matter of an hour. But, kill stuff 10 levels over you with buffs. The above chart is only for people without a healer. MAGICIANHOOD Level 15-16 Kill Nyangyangs Level 16-18 Kill Bangs Level 18-20 Kill Mutant Feferns Level 20-22 Mia Gorenecklace Quest Gorenecklace +2 adds a nice 122 HP and you get a lot of EXP from this, and 75K Penya. Level 22-24 Kill Mutant Bangs Level 24-26 Kill Mr. Pumpkins Level 26-28 Kill Red Mantis Level 28-30 Kill Giggleboxes Now, it changes. From here on, use elements to level, and kill monsters 5 levels over you, not 1 level over. Level 30-32 Kill Hobos Level 32-33 Red Bang Troupe Quest You will need to do this as a pre-requisite for a level 60+ Quest that gives like 150% Exp. You also get 350k penya, which is awesome for unfunded characters. Level 33-34 Kill Dumbulls Level 34-36 Kill Totemias Level 36-38 Kill Cardpuppets By now you should be easily hitting 3K+ Damage. Also, you will NEED a healer unless you are a full STA build, because you will die too much. Move on to the Garden Of Rhisis. Level 38-40 Kill Tombstonebearers Level 40-42 Kill Basques Level 42-44 Script Quest Level 44 0% to level 44 90% Bonebowl Quest Level 44-46 Dungeon Quest Now, you got a nice boost for a few levels with some awesome mid-level quests. Your damage at around level 45 will cap at about 4K, and you will stop doing much more since the formula for the skill damage isn't changing as much. Don't worry, between level 50-65 mobs, their HP curve is very slow. If you want the 45 greens, go buy some. Level 46-48 Kill Leyenas Level 48-50 Kill Steamwalkers Level 50-52 Kill Steelknights Level 52-54 Kill Nuttywheels Level 54-56 Kill Drillers Level 56-58 Kill Volts Level 58-60 Kill Elderguards WOOT! Level 60! Now, go do the job change quest from the [Guardian] NPCs in Darkon. Follow what the quest log says carefully. Reskill, and Restat if you bought one. Your leveling style will stay about the same until level 65 though no matter what build you choose. Level 60-62 Kill Garbagepiders Level 62-65 Kill Cranes * * Note, it will be very hard to get a free spot here sometimes due to it's popularity and nice drop rates here. After level 65, you will either do one of four things: 1. Hit and run AOE 2. Tank AOE 3. Crucio 4. 1 on 1 For hit and run AOERs and tank AOERs, the leveling is about the same. I split the guide here. Lv. AOERS 1 ON 1 CRUCIO 65-66 Cranes Syliacas Luias 66-67 Syliacas Greenmongs Luias 67-69 Greenmongs Carrierbombs Shuhammas 69-71 Carrierbombs Hoppres Kerns 71-73 Carrierbombs* Mushpoies** Glaphans 73-75 Mushpoies** Irens Glaphans*** 75-77 Irens Irens **** Glaphans/Irens 77-79 Watangkas Watangkas Glaphans/Watangkas 79-80 Watangkas Watangkas Glaphans/Watangkas As you can see, by the time at level 80, all classes will arrive at the same monster. It is optional to stay at glaphans for level 75-80, so I added both training routes. After 75, the EXP gets lower, but it is still very feasible until level 80+. So, Crucio will dissapear as a leveling class by then. Both types of AOERS will still kill the same things, but 1 on 1ers will begin killing things higher than their level by a lot more after level 80. * Note, Carrierbombs are still the best things to AOE, Hoppres have a poor spawn ** Note, Mushpoies may be hard to find a free camp for the same reasons as Cranes *** Note, Glaphans are the best thing to crucio, the Deadwalderness monsters are too tough even at 80+ **** Note, You will stay at Irens a long time for good loot, usually empty spawns, and fast kills Lv. AOERS 1 ON 1 80-82 Antiqueries* Captain Antiqueries 82-84 Antiqueries Luias 84-86 Antiqueries Gonguries 86-88 Antiqueries Shuhammas 88-90 Shuhammas Kerns 90-92 Shuhammas Kerns 92-94 Kerns Glaphans 94-96 Kerns Glaphans 96-98 Captain Kerns/Glaphans Captain Glaphans/Small Chimeradons 98-100 Captain Glaphans Chimeradons 100+ Whatever you find Whatever you find After level 100, you can go to the desert. AOERS will go there at 100 too, on chimeradons probably. By level 100, 1 on 1ers could probably go to Bearnerkies. * Note, You will stay here a long time due to good elements, good loot, good spawns, emptiness, and not far from town -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- 20098 -=MAGICIAN PVP=- A magician's role in PVP is to be a good damage dealer that will slow enemies down as an Elementer, or to root enemies as a Psykeeper. The best magician PVP build is probably: X STA 80 INT 15 STR 15 DEX Which is just a little bit more INT than the normal 'Hybrid' build. Whether you are Elementer or Psykeeper, that is probably the best build. As either class, equipment does not matter much for mages, but keep in mind you might want good jewelry as a mage. Magician PVP isn't reccomended before level 60, but they still dominate even at level 20, when you can start to PVP. In mid-2007 in Version 9, a patch came out that disabled damage reduction due to levels, and since magic hits for high, it is very easy to pierce through a target's HP and magic defense. So, even at low levels, they are good. Psykeepers are good at fighting BPs due to Crucio and Satanology. Elementers are good on almost every class, but Knights seem to pose trouble because even with magic it's hard to damage them well, and Elementer's lack of a root, so they are forced to use Windfield, which dosen't always work. In a PVP fight in the arena in a duel, the best skill you can use is Rooting. A lot of people underlook it, but it's fast, and has low MP cost. When it's maxed it has a fairly high success rate. So don't overlook it! Another useful skill is the Elementer skill Avananche. If you get it to stun, than the battle is all yours. And since it stuns about once every three times, you are guaranteed to win at least 1/3 of the duels you fight, and you usually don't even need Avalanche to help. For Psykeepers, just use Crucio and make sure to keep them rooted with Satanology and spam Psychic Bomb. I'd reccomend Demonology, since it's faster, uses less MP, looks pretty cool, and does more damage, but the problem with it is the lack of a stun. Unless you can get them rooted with Satanology, then use Psychic Bomb. I'd also reccomend Spirit Bomb, but since your MP will be drained very fast, you'll have no way to recover it back past the 70% threshold because MP Refreshers have low maximum recovery rates. Unless you have low MP, lots of refreshers, and quick reactions, don't plan on using it. Plus, it's slower than the other 2 main attack skills, uses more MP, and has higher skill requirements. It dosen't stun, either, so you have to stop and keep using Satanology if you don't kill the enemy in time. Spirit Bomb PVP is probably better after level 90 though, because Demonology and Psychic Bomb start to do too little damage. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- 59383 -=OVERVIEW OF THE MAGICIAN=- With many skills to choose from from the Elementer path and good looking skills, to non-elemental yet powerful skills with mediocre HP, Magicians are a versatile class. Main Stats: Vit/Int Main Weapons: Staves/Wands Focus: Ranged damage skills Pros: + Highest MP + Strong skills + Many skills + Fast leveling + Usually cool equipment + Good AOERs + Usually cheap + Fairly unique Cons: - Lowest HP - Lowest Defense - Low block rate - Some levels are 'hell' levels levelspeed-wise - Weak 1 on 1ers with poor items and soloing - Need to worry about elements usually - There are stronger skills out there - Slow skills - Healer dependant - Psys usually get looked at badly - Some equipment is ugly Basically, if you like the idea of using powerful skills against targets to kill them in a matter of seconds, this is the class for you! With decent PVP, you can't go wrong if you build them right! ~Whymes , Loyal FLYFF player -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- 01838 -=CLOSURE=- I hope you liked the guide.
