Hi !
Those days I saw many topics about mage , So I Decided to make my own guide to help new players !
Firstly, I have to tell you that english isn’t my main langage, so don’t be too severe.

Now The Guide, I hope you’ll enjoy it guys..


Points

Mage start with :
Strenght : 20
Dexterity : 50
Intelligence : 60
Vitality : 20
Stat Points Remaining: 10

Put your first 10 point into Vitality, because when you are high level ( 60+ ) monster can critical until 1000 damage so you need some life. So now you have

Mage start with :
Strenght : 20
Dexterity : 50
Intelligence : 60
Vitality : 30

Edit : You can also put all your 10 points into Intelligence but I tried this build too and I really prefered the vitality build, but it’s your choice.

From Level 1-71 : You put all you points into Intelligence

Items

Mage can only wear Robe, Staff And Dagger

From Level 1 – 20.. Melee

From Level 1-20 to attack with your weapon, I you have correct gear you can do it without regen.. So it’s really fast

Weapon : Must have Enhanced Effect
Armor : Dexterity, Strenght or Life per Kill
Charm : Dexterity, Strenght or Life per Kill

Example :

Rare iron dagger
Level Req: 5
Damage: 36 to 63

+98% Enhanced Effect
+2% Mind Numb

Magical tattered robe
Defense: 0 to 1

+39 Strength

Magical lightning I
Spell Damage: 1 to 18
Magic Cost: 5

+1 to 171 Life per Kill

With this build I’m doing 1-20 without regen

From Level 20-71 ..Caster

Now the real part, you attack with your charm so you need many Enhanced Effect on your charm and your weapon and armor only use to enhanced the damage of your charm. If you can find a weapon with enhanced effect it’s nice because when the monster is slow in life you can hit him with your weapon so you don’t use mana.


Weapon : Intelligence, Enhanced Effect, Magic per Kill,
Armor : Intelligence, Magic per Kill,
Charm : Must have Enhanced Effect

Example :

Mystical sapphire dagger
Level Req: 30
Damage: 41 to 72

+45 Intelligence
+1% Physical Damage Reduction
+1% Magical Damage Reduction

Rare seamist padded robe
Level Req: 30
Defense: 0 to 23

+45 Intelligence
+2 Critical Strike

Arcane fire IX
Level Req: 30
Spell Damage: 112 to 299
Magic Cost: 85

+126% Enhanced Effect
+2 Dexterity
+34 Intelligence
+1 Magic Luck
+1 Critical Strike
+1% Magical Damage Reduction

With this build I’m doing about 250.000-333.000 before I must have to regen.

Regen Part
Between Level 20-65 you just have to regen you mana so buy mana regen items.. Mana/Life in the same charm is just amazing but really expensive..

If this guide can help some players it’s perfect..
And don’t forget Mage is the Char wink.gif

on my mage, i did 5 vit, 5 int at begining... it was really nice at the lower/mid levels to have that extra mana and killing power. However at 60+ its my life that keeps slowing me down, if i have to replay mage, i think i will be doing the 10 vita build. nice guide, short and simple.
