Artiste's Ice and Lightning Wizard guide.

mush1a.gif I've stopped updating on MT, for translating that into Wiki format is a pain in the backside. Still tell me your critiques here, and stuff like that.

2 How long, O LORD, must I call for help, but you do not listen? Or cry out to you, "Violence!" but you do not save? 3 Why do you make me look at injustice? Why do you tolerate wrong? Destruction and violence are before me; there is strife, and conflict abounds. 4 Therefore the law is paralyzed, and justice never prevails. The wicked hem in the righteous, so that justice is perverted. (5 is the Lord replying to Habakkuk)5 "Look at the nations and watch— and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told." Habakkuk 1:2-5

4 "See, he is puffed up; his desires are not upright— but the righteous will live by his faith. Habakkuk 2:4


Still gone.

Your guide is great. mush1a.gif.

Suggestions:
Maybe you should put the places we should train from level 8-30 first. And list the skills and tell the pros and cons.

Oh btw "Ellenia" is spelled "Ellinia". mush1a.gif

Good luck on your guide. :thumbsup:

"1: Introduction [intro]

==Introduction==

This is the guide I'm going to be submitting to MapleWiki once I'm completely done with it, so forgive the Wiki format, it would take hours to fix it. With my selective reading, anyway.
"

You really should add the bracket thing in the actual section, so that people can use it. ;P

Ohh.... oops. I'll edit that in. xD

Edit: Done with those. Expect a rather large update in the morning, but I won't have the training areas for a LUKless; I might not have them for regulars, either.... mush1j.gif *Can't remember where he trained*

Edit two: I just started a LUKLess in Windia. Mostly because of the fact that I've always wanted one, and that he'll help me immensely with this guide. The LUKless portion, anyway. xD Name is xFrozenLuck, if anybody is interested in helping me train in the hour a day I get. =P Some of it's also to prove you can do a LUKless without funding.

If anyone wants to help me with the training for both kinds of Wizards, then I appreciate it greatly. Just PM me or post here with the information on where you trained.

I need help desperately getting the training areas for all three types of Magicians! HALP, PL0X.

Hey, maybe I can help you with the regular luck training from 8-15. HHG. All the way. mush1k.gif

I should make a guide once I'm more experienced.

Hmm... d'you mean the first floor? I'm going to need more specific suggestions before I can put them in the guide. xD Although, that does bring back some memories of Wand while I was training at that level... pretty sure it was snails... dang it, if only I hadn't had to quit; I'd remember these things more easily.

Good LUK with that guide, Furry. =P

Thanks! I'm really trying hard to make it like that. I've been pretty lazy on updating since I got Maple back; now I think I'm getting back into the groove of updating nearly every day. >:D

Edit: Updated the guide a bit with training areas. Emphasis on a bit. mush1k.gif

[quote]===Regular LUK unfunded build===
This is, as the title says, the skill build for people who don't have a character funding them. I'll list the Regular LUK first, then the LUKless (IF they're different). The legend is: Level #: Number put into skill. (Number total) Here we go!

Level 8: 1 Energy Bolt. (1)
Level 9: 3 Improving MP Recovery. (3)
Level 10: 2 Improving MP Recovery, (5) 1 Improving MAX MP Increase. (1)
Level 11: 3 Improving MAX MP Increase. (4)
Level 12: 3 Improving MAX MP Increase. (7)
Level 13: 3 Improving MAX MP Increase. (10 MAX)
Level 14: 3 Improving MP Recovery. (8)
Level 15: 3 Improving MP Recovery. (11)
Level 16: 3 Improving MP Recovery. (14)
Level 17: 2 Improving MP Recovery, (16 MAX) 1 Magic Claw. (1)
Level 18: 3 Magic Claw. (4)
Level 19: 3 Magic Claw. (7)
Level 20: 3 Magic Claw. (10)
Level 21: 3 Magic Claw. (13)
Level 22: 3 Magic Claw. (16)
Level 23: 3 Magic Claw. (19)
Level 24: 1 Magic Claw, (20 MAX) 2 Magic Guard. (2)
Level 25: 3 Magic Guard. (5)
Level 26: 3 Magic Guard. (8)
Level 27: 3 Magic Guard. (11)
Level 28: 3 Magic Guard. (14)
Level 29: 3 Magic Guard. (17)
Level 30: 3 Magic Guard. (20 MAX)

-So, at the end of first job, if you've followed this build, you'll have:
1 Energy Bolt,
16 Improving MP Recovery,
10 Improving MAX MP Increase,
20 Magic Claw,
20 Magic Guard,
0 Magic Armor[quote]

I disagree with this build. When I made my first mage (after I came back), I put in enough magic claw to 1hit slimes (about 3-4), then at level 16ish, got it up to around 7-8 to 1hit orange mush, then after I maxed mp recovery, maxed magic claw. I actually saved money doing this build, because it was the fastest way to level without having to spend every meso I get as soon as I get it.

Otherwise it's good ^-^

There's quite a difference with being funded and unfunded at the beginning stages of a mage. Funded people buy exchange quest items to level fast. You didn't even meantion the idea of exchange quest. You're also missing the build where you put the first point into MP recovery instead of magic bolt. There are perfectionists like me that want that extra couple of MP for the first couple of levels. I would also would like to know what you're experience is as a mage. Other than that, your guide seems like a no brainer...

I forgot. XD I've never had a funded character, so the thought slipped out of my mind.

He said in the guide he'd only cover STR mages up til the 2nd job advancement. He isn't making a STR I/L guide, he even said that such a thing is pointless and doomed to EPIC PHAILURE.

I just haven't gotten to the second job advancement yet. It may be common sense to YOU, but maybe it's not so common sense to some other people. Some people don't HAVE common sense. mush1j.gif And some people who're new to the game, or new to Magicians, maybe they don't know anything about them, don't have experience some of you guys have. Ever think of them when you talk about 'common sense'?

Before you bash my UNFINISHED guide, think about what you're bashing about it.
