I want to make a Mage that I can use for farming. Idk what skills or status build I should do. Any suggestions?
First off I'm gonna say there is no Magic Device build. It's just a Magic build. Staffs are better for bosses and can equip good sub equips that help with DPS. Magic Devices are way better for farming regular mobs as they make AOEs bigger and you won't flinch as easily when casting.
Stats are really easy to explain. All into INT. Done. By the time you will need to put points into anything else you will be able to figure out what you want(you can't even get close to max INT at the current level cap yet).
For skills here are some basic requirements pretty much:
Mage Tree: Magic Arrows Max, Mana Wall Max, Mana Charge Max Survival Tree: Safe Rest lvl 5(don't go any higher), HP Increase lvl 5 or more
After this you can take a more supportive approach and get stuff from the Priest and Support Skill Trees or you can go all into DPS. For DPS you basically just want to get Blast maxed as well. Also get lvl 5 for Magic Javelin and Magic Lances for in the future when we get new skills.
For Support two absolute skills to get are Bless and Gloria from the Priest Tree. Then from the Support Tree, the MP, Attack, and HP Aura are all good and there's a skill that cures status ailments and is nice to have at level 1.
What's the max for a skill? And how many points should I put into INT? I'm lvl 15 right now
10 is the max level for skills. 5 is what you need to unlock the next skill in the tree. Ex)You need 5 Magic Arrow to unlock Mana Wall and Javelin.
You want to max INT. The stat cap is most likely 256(it was that in Iruna and that's what it looks like in Toram as well) and we can't get to that yet. I believe the highest you can get at the moment is 171 and that is with all stat emblems unlocked.
The Emblems are definitely something to work towards. Most you will just naturally get as you play. You get 5 stat points for each of these:
Reach lvl 5, 15, 25, 35, 45, and 55. So this is 30 Stat points here. It will probably continue this trend at 65. This carries over to all your characters on your account.
Win the Attacker, Breaker, Support, and Tank Role 10 times. Here's another 20 extra. As a Mage you will get the Attacker very easily but none of the others xD. You also get 1 skill point for doing these 100 times. You get free character slots after you play the game for a certain amount of time so when you get those I would make characters specifically for the purpose of getting stats and skill points.
