Tell you 1 thing.
I do not know anything about Wizard. I only play a blader & a FS so far. All i know about them are they runs a lot (blink, dash & fade), I love their sp & crit party buffs.
But I see a lot ppl has question about Wizard's build, skills & gears, so I did a little research on Wizard.
1st, wizards are not weak. weak @ low lvl but they get stronger @ high lvl. Their Crits hurts!
Let's start from the beginning. What is Wizard?
Wizard // Hometown: Desert Scream
The wizard is your AoE, spellcasting, ranged class. Cabal Alz Wizards wield dual orbs as power sources for their magic and wear the martial set for higher avoid, but lack defense as compensation. Wizards are excellent fighters due to their long range AoE attacks that still deal high amounts of damage. Wizards also have the ability to freeze monsters from a range so that they cannot even reach you, making your lack of defense not even a factor to worry about. Since wizards are a 1 stat class like warriors and mainly use just magic skills, wizards are a class suitable for beginners as well.
+ Best long range AoE
+ Capable of freezing opponents from far away, preventing you from harm
+ Decent avoid rate
+ Powerful in PvP due to freezing and range
- Low defense
This is wizard's growth chart
Get Magic Arrow, Burning Hand and Freeze to lv9. This is to allow faster skill training as what affects skill level is how frequent u cast your skills. You may choose other novice skills(arrows) but i personally prefer Burning Hand and Freeze because they have very low cooldown at lv9(burning hand 1.1s, freeze 1s) and very easy to combo. Reason for leaving these skills at lv9 = lowest cooldown time. Also, get Regeneration and that's it for Novice.
Reaching apprentice allows you to learn the blasts. Don't bother. This is because you will delete them anyway. However, get Dig Bomb to lv9 because it's limit 2(AOE) and knocks down the enemy. Good for saving your arse when you get whooped by many mobs Cabal Alz. For other apprentice skills like Icicle Shower, don't even look at them.
