Pros and cons[edit | edit source]
- Can keep the enemy perma slowed. Good chaser
- Has 2 solid escape/defence skills, which make you good at escaping and avoiding sticky situations
- High damage, AOE and range with frostcall
- Your main damaging skill (Frostcall) is powerful, but awkward to use, since it is both channeled and has casting time
- You need to rely on being at range/surprise attacks + having an escape plan to be effective if you are playing alone. You are not good at fighting 1 v 1. In a team fight you are more effective as you can rely on others taking the damage for you/deny attempts of the enemy to focus on you, while keeping the enemies slowed for your teammates and doing decent damage.
Lore[edit | edit source]
Mages are people with the ability to conjure nothing into something. They are able to enter a part of their brain which enables to them to use Magic. Mages come from the Mountains towards the East where they were trained to use Magic to survive the cold and to use it to their advantage. They are able to travel past high terrains through the ability to teleport. Mages use their power using the four elements as their base. Advanced Mages are able to combine elements to make different things such as lightning.
Mages seen today use mainly Ice as their base element as Magic first originated in the mountains. Most scrolls contain spells only on Ice magic. The other Elements are extremely rare to see.
The Vanguard has managed to use Mages as fighters through training them to concentrate their powers to a dense form resulting in ice shards.
Farming[edit | edit source]
Mages are one of the two classes (besides warrior) to utilize splash damage, or damage that can hit multiple foes at once. This, in combination with the slowness of ice bolt allows Mages to easily gather "trains" of mobs. As a Mage, you can use ice bolt to gather and concentrate mobs, then teleport away and use frost call for the kill. In addition, if you are low on health, instead of teleporting away right away, you may instead use ice block as you take no damage. You may then subsequently teleport away and continue with the ice bolts or frost calls.
