Becoming a Sage

Tips

  • A Sage may use either a Hammer or a Staff, though it's best to obtain and hotkey both to use whenever the situation calls.
  • A Sage with the Woodland Warrior talent can dual wield two one-handed hammers.
  • Healing is not influenced by M-ATK (magic attack), so use whichever stat you like while having the exact same healing capability.
  • 2-Handed hammers have better DPS while 1-Handed hammers have a 2 Stun probability built in. This concludes that 2-Handed hammers are better for XP/Loot grinding while 1-Handed hammers are better for PvP. 2H hammers have more damage per hit but 1H hammers gives more hits per minute, meaning more critical hits, ability procs, and also speeds up skilluse.
  • Since Sages can switch into various forms and roles, every stat is important for Sages. INT/WIL/STA are important for the Human and Eagle forms and AGI/STR/VIT are important for the Wolf and Gorilla forms.

Sprites

  • Sages can use sprites that craft staves ,relic , hammers, and priest armor.

Advantages

  • Healing Ability - Many healing spells means they're not reliant on healing potions.
  • HoT's - A sage in human form is a good healer with HoTs (Heal over time spells) and Heal spells. Great Eagle form has an instant heal skill which also increases movement speed.

  • Solo - One of the best soloing classes in the game, able to apply evasion, physical damage reduction, and healing to maximize survivability in a dungeon or on the map, also with decent downtime.
  • High damage output - Sages have a very high DPS rate if equipped correctly.
  • Parties - Sages are always wanted in parties because they can do any role it needs to, ie Melee DPS, Magic DPS, Healer etc.
