well lookin bak on past xperiences wif dis game, dis one issue kept comin up wif da mage class

everybody noes dat mage can deal krazy dmg by soloing if high lvl obviously but since all mages in every game, not juz RO has krappy health, dere not so good 4 soloing O_o

lotta ppl say if u wonna solo choose a warrior or something but den mages hav good projectiles attackin moves which makes sense all round easier and more convenient...but since mages die in a only a few shots without being in a present of a priest dats a real big downhill

so da real question / debate is dat is mage better 4 soloing or partyin?

dis can be argued both ways 4 sure but i once posted dis topic on another ro forum and da anwsers were quite interestin....ppl had very good reason 4 both Content

other dan dat happy ROing (1st Mage Topic by sunchip)

The simple answer to this is... it depends on your style of play. Any class in the game can solo effectively... some more than others.

Mage classes from the get go can seem really weak and fragile. But in the hands of the right person, they become a very dangerous class. They may not have the most HP in the game, but their ability to dish out damage is more than enough to make other classes fear them. The only real opposition to any mage class are range characters (ie. Hunters). But again, it depends on the player.

But for overall soloing, AGI-type and Hybrid-type melee builds take the cake. Their ability to go 1 on 1 vs most monsters make them ideal for beginner players.

If you know what strats to use as a magician/wizard, leveling will be faster. That much is known. I noticed it worked the same in WoW too. But as IdyotAko said,

hmmm mages....i think they cant level up solo...but it only depends on your stats and skill that uve chosen(maybe..i never had a mage in my hangar).Mage/wizards are crazy killers..using only the four elements and thats cool but the disadvatage of this is that u have a crappy HP, I guess a mage/wizard cant level up alone. Its just like there weak in the sense dat they die quickly...better just get a priest and level p togehter..mages and priest are like breada nd butter,spoon and fork...when both are togher theyl be a complete threat.!!!

a good wizard can solo, and create mob solo's, its alot harder now in places like clocktower where there's now ridewords and mimics, but theres other places. But yea better to level with a priest.

Mages lack a few powerful AoE skills to deal against a mob effectively (fire wall is meant for a 1-on-1), not to mention it's pretty hard for them to level up in areas where there are a lot of aggressives (unless you're so good with either fire wall or safety wall/running away). Casting time could be a problem too. Overall, it's like what other people say, it's your strategy.

Really, it dosen't matter. Mages have the ability to heal themselves & plus you have potions, also, mages have very damaging Magic Attacks. I'd best stick with a party for better help though. Winking

But only if they have a Healing Clip. I don't.

Please don't discuss that here, it's part of our agreement.

imo mage class such as wiz/sage are meant to be support characters making them party dependent though they can solo they are effective in a party think of them as the support gunner in a war, they dont really kill off the mobs but they decrease their hp in order for his/her allies to finish em off
