1.0 There are 4 Primary tactics to play a Mage.

1.) Primary skills - the best skills are your basic attacks they are freely able to be used such as Fireball. You can be moving running Dimensional Port and still able to cast fireball instantly. its like a soldier with a sword and doing basic attack.

2.) Kiting - In almost all MMORPG, Browser based games. Kiting means moving around while doing your potential damage skills and spamming your primary attack.

3.) Crowd Control - Is mages job to make sure you control the outcome of your party's farming (if the game makes dungeon monsters harder that require a party to grind with and mini bosses in maps Mages become useful in partys to be able to reduce the amount of monsters hitting the tank and giving healers an easy job. Frost Blast (freezes monsters up, Sheep transform, Silence, Glacial shield when being aggroed by additional monsters.)

4.) Surroundings - Mages Must always be aware of what is ahead and behind them. this provides protection of being Gankged, or ganged up on and being killed faster than you can cast your CC spells. Mages should and always have a planned escape or kiting route. Make use of Dimensional Teleport this provides extra huge spacing away from aggressive Tanks, Archers.


With the 4 Basic Knowledge of Mages your capable of doing wonders with simple equips and medium abilities level.

2.0 How to Build a proper Mage.

There are several possible ways to build up a mage

1.) BloodLine- There are alot of primiary stats you need for a mage:
      A. Magic Attack- increase the amount of magic damage you deal out.
      B. Stamina - Increases your Defense, Health points.
      C. Health - Gives you more health to live longer from being attacked.
      D. Agility - gives you better Critical damage, Evasion from basic attacks.
      E. Wisdom - Gives you more magic Attack, Magic Points AKA mana.
      F. Defense - Provided your getting beat up by physical attack this helps reduce some of the damage.

2.) Gems- Fire/Frost dmg, HP, PVP less dmg gems are and should be primary gems for mage.
     A. Fire and frost dmg gems average level 3-5 for most mages would be good enough. i would go with all Fire dmg as your    primary skill is fireball, it also increases flame blast (ring) and meteor.
    B. HP/MP gems are actuall a must for mages you need to survive the longest while being attacked. Soldiers, Rangers primary targets are mages best to live to keep protecting your teammates than to die and unable to protect them.
    C. PVP Less dmg gem this gem is actually like a player vs player reduction in dmg. level 4-5 is around 1.7% reduction and can be put on up to 10 gears full 8 set of armor wings, and Staff. so a total of 17% reduction.

3.) Equipment/Upgrade - alot of equipments boost base stats. This is easy to obtain mainly because you can do Instances in levels 30-40-50-60 maps and they give Epic gears purple for mages. The equips can also be obtained by trading in medals at gear dealer. Also you may obtain Necklaces, Rings from completing Blue/Purple inn quest which give bounty hunter medals each require 30 bounty medals. and level 40+ equip only.

4.) Talents - There are many useful Talents that you can level these can be obtain by getting talent cards from NPC trading Blank Talent cards, or Doing instances, Auction house as well for Diamonds. Enhance Ice Arrow gives you the ability to freeze your opponents for 2-4 secs depending on talent level. This comes in handy with luck of landing. enhance silence decreases the Cool Down, ignite gives you the chance to do DoT ( damage over time) from fireballs meteor etc. very useful.

5.) Spamming - Continuously using the faster cd skills such as Fireball 0.75 sec. Flame blast (ring of fire) 1 sec cd. Ice Arrow 1.5sec cd. These skills can be used repetitively and intensively as fast as possible to dish out damage.

6.) Skills - Maxing certain skills such as Meteor, spammable skills, CC skills are important as they do more damage and last longer also reduce cooldowns. making you very deadly to fight on 1 vs 1 challenge.

3.0 How to PVP (Player VS Player)

1.) With the above knowledge i've mentioned you should have no problem to assess and apply the potential skills you've learned to play this game as a mage.

2.) ALWAYS i mean ALWAYS pay attention to your attackers skills and how and when they use it Glacial Shield is your best friend this allows you to be immune to ALL damage from any skill or attack even with 1 hp left. It could become useful to make soldiers and archer spam their important skills on your and waste it for that duration of CD.

3.) CC skills can be applied to single base or team fights. Frost ring gives 5 secs snare skill very important you save this skill to avoid being continuously spammed with skills and resulting in death. Make use of silence skill which prevents your attacks to use their spammable skills and only result to basic attacks. This gives you the advantage of kiting your useful fireball. Also keep moving around the field and kite them physical damage dealers. if its vs a Priest then its a magic vs heals u need to dish out your strongest spells Meteor with mana amplify.

ulti, u forgot to add...mage got a talent for frost ring, 30% chance to make target +20% magic damage taken. this is very useful.

if u are 1v1, try silence, if that dun work, can try frost blast, if it work, quicky use amplify and then meteor.

my pk combo is always  frost blast, amplify, meteor.
or silence, frost blast, meteor (if dun got amplify)

it can also be a support skill for your group in pvp. since frost blast is a aoe skill. everyone u hit with it has 30% to get that debuff... +20% magic damage taken

"over 3.3k kill count and going higher" ... when I see numbers like this, I know I see a spawn killer and an AFK killer. Great job. I bet it takes "real" skill to do it

Actually Glory does not condone afk killing. And spawn killing... odds are out of the 500 people that die, you'll get 10 kills if it's a big group like you're probably assuming.

Ulti is legit. Just sayin.

legit = not cheating and I never said he/she cheats.
Killing people that are on auto-act does not imply any skills so boasting with kill numbers is empty in this case.

i have not done many auto attacks to make 3.3k i'm rarely in Dimensional pking.. it is if only my members say they got pk'd by ______ person i go pk them afk or in pvp maps or in bf regardless..

in battle field i am usually up to around 15 kills.. with revive bugs you can tell how many revive bug users i've killed =)

you can thank the ppl that revive so much in setan merah that gave me my kill count..

unfortunately there is a priest i know who would kill anyone afk or not running so much and just DoT ppl so meh.. i am not going to point out any more issues because i know how i got my kills and i know what i need to do to increase it.
