== Mage/Pagan ==

As Mage\Pagan, you will need the following Stats. You can go or, for a so called mixed build (different amount to different stats), or for one Stat only

Amount of stat points per mode

In Normal Mode you’ll get 5 Stat points per level + each level you get automatically 1 more point to Intelligence. In Hard Mode you’ll get 7 Stat points per level + each level you get automatically 1 more point to Intelligence. In Ultimate Mode you’ll get 9 Stat points per level + each level you get automatically 1 more point to Intelligence.

Except the Stat points you get per level, you can get stat pints from PVP ranking (after achieving certain new rank you get certain amount of Stat points)* note u need to get the stat points over PVP NPC located in Apulune (Alliance of Light) \ Iris (Union of Fury)

INT- Intelligence = Affects your magic damage Most spells do certain amount of damage + magic damage WIS – Wisdom = Affects amount of Magic Points (MP), Magical defense (Resistance or short RES), success of magic spell (if It hits/ misses the target) REC- Recovery = Affects amount of Life Points (LP) and your Physical Defense (DEF) LUC- Luck = Affects your critical hit success rate (how often you do criticals) and also a little the Evasion Rate.

Following Stats are not realy usefull for Mages\Pagans, but you may use them for some kind of special build.

STR – Strength = Amount of Physical Damage DEX – Dexterity = Evasion Rate, Physical hit success rate


Example builds

The Following Builds are just examples how you can set your character. You can use them as examples or make completely other kinds of build. Or you can change the used amount of stat points differently by each level

Normal Mode

On this mode u get 5 Stat points per each level (+1 INT you get per level automatically)

Full INT Build – 5 INT (+1 INT you get per level automatically)

  • Most often used type of NM Mage\Pagan – You will do normal damage, but without adding Gear with WIS you will also often miss


4 INT - 1 WIS

  • You will do little less damage but u will have more MP and will hit more often

Luck Mage\Pagan - 4 LUC – 1 INT (+1 INT you get per level automatically)

  • Isn’t adviced as starting build. This type of mage does often criticals and at later levels probably the best damage from NM. If you choose this as starting build u will have it hard to level.
    • You still can later at higher Level (50+) use Stat Resetting Stone (can be bought over AP or in Apulune (Alliance of Light) \ Iris (Union of Fury)) and Change your previous Build to this one.

REC Mage\Pagan 4 REC - 1 INT (+1 INT you get per level automatically)

  • Isn’t adviced to make such Build IN NM
    • You can use Close Combat spells (Fire Torn, Fire Ring…) Pulling Spells (attribute Remove…) and Fast Cast Spells (Most Wind spells – Turbulence, Lightning …)

This type of build has little damage, but has high Defense and can agro monsters (a REC Mage\Pagan can’t replace a Defender\Guardian). You will definitely need party to level such build.

REC Mage\Pagan 4 REC - 1 WIS (+1 INT you get per level automatically)

  • Only difference from previous build is that you will have also little resistance, but less damage to.

Battle Mage\Pagan 3 STR 2 DEX (+1 INT you get per level automatically)

  • high Physical Damage and low Magical Damage

Battle Mage\Pagan 4 STR 1 DEX (+1 INT you get per level automatically)

  • Little Higher the 3 STR but lower Hit Rate
  • Not really a good build since you can’t compete to any physical attack Class (Fighter\Warrior, Archer\Hunter or Ranger\Assassin)

Hard Mode

Offers more possibilities since you get 7 Stat points (+1 INT you get per level automatically)

Full INT Mage\Pagan 7 INT (+1 INT you get per level automatically)

  • You will do very good magical damage, but without WIS gear you will also miss a lot.

6 INT - 1 WIS (+1 INT you get per level automatically)

6 INT - 1 REC (+1 INT you get per level automatically)

5 LUC - 2 INT (+1 INT you get per level automatically)

5 REC – 2 INT (+1 INT you get per level automatically)

5 REC - 1 INT - 1 WIS (+1 INT you get per level automatically)

5 WIS – 2 INT (+1 INT you get per level automatically)

4 STR – 3DEX (+1 INT you get per level automatically)

5 STR – 2DEX (+1 INT you get per level automatically)


Ultimate Mode

On this mode you will get the highest amount of Stat points, but you can loose your character when dying (and you don’t have a Priest\Oracle to resurrect you or a Resurrection Rune)
