I have to say lvl 5 quagmire is awesome. I've soloed doppleganger and lvl 35 orc hero with this skill. Now u will need cash shop potions but it is doable. The slowdown with quagmire cannot be underestimated. lvl 5 hardly fails but I've had my moments with it. Will make almost all mobs your bitch but this is before wiz change after wiz change its worthless because of the AOEs. At lvl 5 it lasts for almost 30 secs I think plus it was the first spell I cast on a mob. I've tried different builds with wiz having quagmire but so far they just don't have enough skill points for me ingame to make a good build with this skill. All of this is just my opinion but I beg my fellow mages/wizs not to just throw this skill in the unused bin. Later on in PvP I think it will be crucial.

Wish I could edit quagmire WILL NOT work on poison mobs like scorpions. Can't remember if it works on kotbias but that's where napalm beat comes in ;)

Cool beans. Started playing a few days ago, and I'm kinda hooked. :)

 

Anyone got any tips for someone trying to build a fire/earth hybrid (Volcanic ;P ) ??? 

 

 

I don't know what the current cap is for skills, so I might have overspent in this skill map. I'm guessing it's at 48 along with the level cap??? If so, I'm thinking this is how I want to potentially build my character.

 

5 - Fire Bolt

10 - Fire Bolt Upgrade

10 - Meteor

5 - Earth Spike

1 - Earth Spike Upgrade

5 - Quagmire

5 - SP recovery

 

Then pour the rest into energy coat, or continue on my earth branch or passive. 

 

Is energy coat worth it? It seems everyone has it, but I've been hesitant to try it out. I've wanted to try Quagmire in my upcoming levels, and thanks to Aura/Reapers post, I'm feeling a bit more confident about trying it out.

 

Sidenote: For now this will be a PvE oriented build. 

 

I wanna buy a good magic pet, but from what I gather they're really expensive and mana pots have not only crushed my moral, but my bank account. 

 

Thanks for all the tips here!

Should firebolt go to level 10?  Mines only goes to lvl 5.  How are people getting level 10 bolts?   I'm confused.

Is there a stat that affects the casting time? You know, like the DEX on real RO?

I may have not seen the message. But I just want to ask, what would be the best elements combination. Right now, my job level is 18, and I have 4 unused level. I dunno if I put in in FB upgrade(currently lvl 3) or should I start to get new element. I made a mistake by putting 5 lvl in Napalm. That's why I'm bit cautious right now where to put the remaining. What do you think? Any advice?

Yeah I mean having a big hitter is a luxury but still, I always recommend at least two bolts. I'm more of a have two really strong ones though than always an advantage. Although I'm at the point where I'm getting the chance to build up a third bolt so that is exciting.

so i do solo on my mage and burned some reset skills to get what i want, we all have a different game style.. and i find it easier to grind using two bolts. hit and run + bolting , while the other bolt is cooling down u still have one to cast..

I just wonder if you can be a wizard while you have extra skill points?

 

Or 

 

Is there a free skill reset when you got 2nd Job?

I've had this free stat reset since the beginning, and recently I've been rethinking things. I'm level 32 and I have 45 (+26) in Int and 21 (+7) in Spr. Is that way too much for Spr? Should I reset and give it all Int or is this a good balance?
