Mystic Class Guide

Last updated: 7th April 2018


INTRODUCTION

Remember that class guides are a rough explanation of the class, designed to give you an idea of the class and what you should be aiming for. You should really adapt the guide and follow your own instincts to match your play-style!

The Mystic class uses Gauntlets as their primary weapon and Vambrace as their secondary weapon. At level 56, Mystic unlocks their awakening weapon which is a Cestus and can summon a sea dragon to give her more damage. The Mystic class uses melee range punches and kicks. She specializes in Martial Arts and has many complex combos that can deal a burst of damage in a short time, whilst also being a tanky class that has lots of super armor abilites. The combos are designed to be very tricky and players may find Mystic hard to master, but not too hard to pick up if you are a new player.

DIFFICULTY

PVP

PVE

SIEGE

Mystic is midtier or just above average in PvE with decent clear speed. They also rarely use potions when grinding, even with the desert debuff, because of their HP regen and ways to get back mana. Mystic really excels in small scale and is also very useful in node wars/siege under multiple roles, such as frontline, defense and flanking.

Check out the videos below to see some examples of Mystic in action.

*For some reason the [Binding] skill is not appearing correctly on the skill calculator, please make sure you take this skill because it is an important one*


iconMountain Aura

Passive

Mountain Aura is your passive. It gives a mixture of Ranged DP/Melee DP/Magic DP/All DP when you level it up, giving a total of around 8 extra DP. You should only level this up when you have your main build and have spare skill points because it takes a lot ot level it up for a small DP increase.

iconAwakening: Banha’s Cestus
[C]

This skill is taken automatically and allows you to swap between your main hand and awakening weapon.

iconDragonize
[SHIFT] + [E]

This skill is your awakening buff (e buff), it is taken automatically and can be used every 3 minutes to give you a 30 second buff, All DP +50, Attack Speed +30% and All Resistance +30%. The skill will also instantly recover 500 HP and has super armor when being used. You should use your awakening buff just before you engage in PVP, or as often as possible when grinding for the attack speed bonus.


iconTranquility
[SHIFT] + [SPACE]

This skill will recover some MP and also give you 3 Martial Spirit Shards. These are absorbed automatically when you use a skill and will enhance the skill. You can also consume Martial Spirit Shards to use Flash Step when it is on cooldown without using stamina.

iconInfinite Fortitude
Quick Slot

You can only use this skill with Quick slot. The skill has super armor and defenses whilst being used and you can also use [LMB] or [SPACE] during Infinite Fortitude to explode instantly and deal damage around you.

iconCestus Training
[LMB]

This is your auto attack skill in awakening.


MOBILITY

Evasion
(HOLD SHIFT) + [A] OR [S] OR [D]

This skill is your roll. You can roll to the sides or backwards. You can also double tap [W] to roll forwards, or double tap in any other direction. You should definately lock this skill because if you use it in PVP by accident then it can make you vulnerable.


iconFlash Step

(HOLD SHIFT) + [W] OR [S]

This skill makes you invinsible while using the skill and is one of your main iframes. It also gives a 30% movment speed buff for 10 seconds and is a must have skill. 


iconSilent Step

(HOLD SHIFT) + [A] OR [D]

This skill makes you invinsible while using the skill and is one of your main iframes. It also gives a 30% movment speed buff for 10 seconds and is a must have skill. 


iconAdamantine

[RMB]

Adamantine is a really good skill and also useful for leveling, especially Flow: Mass Destruction, which is one of the skills you will use most in non-awakening. You should focus on leveling this up as soon as possible. The skill has forward guard and will also stun your target and recover a lot of WP. It also has quite a bit of range compared to your other skills and can be combo’d with Flash Step to cast it backwards. Flow: Mass Destruction also has super armor and no collision on it’s short range evade which is really useful for getting behind your target to stun them. 

Double Flash
Procceding Skill: [Flash Step II]

Double Flash requires Flash Step II from your pre-awakening. This skill will give you 3 dashes of Flash Step instead of just 1, which is a lot more mobility.

DAMAGE

iconScissor Kick
[W] + [F]

This skill is a useful skill with super armor and also inflicts floating on the last good hit. It can hit a maximum of 7 targets and also has a WP recovery on each good hit.


iconCrouching Wolf

[SPACE] while using certain skills

Crouching Wolf is an important skill and you should make sure that you also take the Flow: Prey Hunt as well. The skill gives you an Attack Speed buff and a greater buff if you have 30 Martial Spirit Shards.


iconTriple Flying Kick (Optional)

[LMB] + [A] OR [D]

This skill is particularly useful in PVP but not very strong in PVE. It isn’t mandatory and you should leave it at level 1 until you have the rest of your skill build first (including awakening). It gives 10 AP and also an Evasion Rate buff increase at level 4. You don’t need to max the skill though until you get Absolute skills.


iconWolf’s Frenzy
[SHIFT] + [F]

This skill is really useful to give you a few seconds to get your cooldowns back or when you are low HP because of it is an iframe while you are moving. You can get knocked out of it but it takes someone with extremely good timing or luck. It is good for chasing players as well because it will teleport you to them, and you can use your grab [E] straight after as well.

Elbow Edge (Optional)
[SHIFT] + [LMB]

This skill is an optional skill and you don’t need to take this skill until absolute/rabam skills. It does have Forward Guard on it but otherwise the skill has lackluster damage and not much use.


iconTwisted Collision

[Q]

This skill is a tricky one to use and you need to be careful when and how you use it. The problem is that it can leave you vulnerable if you miss an attack because it has forward guard only when it is not on cooldown. If you do take this skill you should add it to your UI as a skill cooldown slot so you can keep track of it easier. The flow skills though are also really useful because they have super armor on them, CC and also debuff the target with either a DP debuff or evasion debuff depending on which one you use.


iconRoaring Tiger

[LMB] + [RMB]

This skill is your 100% Black Spirit Rage skill. It is definately worth taking and is a must have skill. It recovers your HP and has a lot of damage as well as Down Attack, Down Smash and Air Smash. It’s a good skill for chaining combos and the HP recovery can be used at any time without needing a target.


iconRage Hammer

[SHIFT] + [Q]

Rage Hammer is  a good skill for PVE especially when leveling to 56. It pulls your enemies towards you and also has super armor, making it great for gathering monsters. It is also great to use in PVP due to it having a 3 second lingering super armor. You can trigger this by tapping [SHIFT] + [Q] then stand still and don’t do anything for 3 seconds.

iconDragon Shatter (Optional)
[RMB]

This skill is an extra attack you can use in certain situations by pressing [RMB] the skill doesn’t have any defenses on it and I personally wouldn’t bother to take it either.


iconTidal Burst

[SHIFT] + [RMB]

This skill is a kick skill which hits up to 4 times and each hit has a different CC effect. It can inflict Stiffness on good 1 hit, Floating on good 3 hit and Air Attack and Air Smash as well on the 3rd and 4th hit. The skill also has super armor as long as it is not used on cooldown and will recover a large amount of MP.


iconSpiral Torpedo

[W] + [F]

This skill will make you leap forward through the air to perform a spin attack. The skill will bypass block, knockdown targetrs on a good hit, and does not have character collision. You also have super armor on the skill and it will give you an All AP buff as well when you use the skill. The skill can also be used when in pre-awakening to switch straight to awakening.


iconRapid Stream

[SHIFT] + [LMB]

This skill hits up to 3 times and each hit has a different CC effect. It can inflict Stun on good 1 hit, and Floating/Knockback on the 3rd hit. The skill also has forward guard as long as it is not used on cooldown and will recover a large amount of MP.


iconSea Burial
[W] + [RMB]

This skill will make you leap forwards quickly to launch an attack that can bound targets on good hits. The skill has super armor whilst you are in the air and is a good skill to use to safely engage. The skill can also be used when in pre-awakening to switch straight to awakening.


iconRising Dragon
[SHIFT] + [Q]

This skill will make you hit the ground with a powerful punch and enemies that get hit will float in the air. The skill doesn’t have any defenses on it and it is also your 100% Black Spirit’s Rage skill. Using the skill with 100% will leave you vulnerable for a long period of time and you need to be careful when using this skill. The skill does decent damage but you must be careful when to use it and should use it when the target is already in CC.

iconWave Orb
[LMB] + [RMB]

Wave Orb is your 200% Black Spirit’s Rage Skill which you must charge to deal damage. You can use the skill without charging it by using Flash Step before it. You can also use this skill whilst in pre-awakening by using [S] + [LMB] + [RMB] to put you straight into awakening. It will put a burst of energy directly in front of you that will stun targets on good hits and also debuff them with an Attack/Casting/Movement speed -10% for 10 sec debuff with up to -30% for 10 sec at max level. The skill has forward guard when charging it and also has super armor when attacking so you can time it perfectly to defend yourself. This skill also has a flow skill “Flow: Wave Orb” which unlocks at level 59 and is auto-activated when using the skill.

iconHurricane Sweep
[F]

This skill doesn’t have any defenses on it but gives a high HP recovery that can be used at any time without needing a target. You should take this skill for the HP recovery but be careful when you use it because it will leave you vulnerable.

iconEnhance: Wolf’s Frenzy
[SHIFT] + [F]

This skill allows you to use [Wolf’s Frenzy] in awakening. The skill is really useful to give you a few seconds to get your cooldowns back or when you are low HP because of it is an iframe while you are moving. You can get knocked out of it but it takes someone with extremely good timing or luck. It is good for chasing players as well because it will teleport you to them, and you can use your grab [E] straight after as well.

iconDragon’s Pit
Quick Slot

This skill must be put in your quick slot. It will instantly cast with no character animation and will summon a sea dragon that will debuff any players caught inside. The debuff is very strong with an attack/casting/movement speed debuff of -30% for 10 sec. You should use this skill as often as you can in PVP to keep your opponent debuffed

iconDragon’s Rip
[S] + [E] OR [RMB]

This skill will summon an orb which will pull in targets and then deal damage when it explodes. The skill has quite a far range in front of you and also has super armor on it. On the good last hit, the skill will inflict down attack and has a chance of down smash as well. It’s a great skill to use in both PVE and PVP because of it’s pull effect.



SKILL COMBOS

The following skill combos are known as “secret combos”. These are not all of the combos. There are many others but these are the ones that have been posted before. Some people believe that “secret combos” should remain a secret to give the people that know them an edge over others. This is why we will only be posting combos that have already been shared elsewhere.

  • Keys in square brackets [] mean that you tap the key. For example, [Q] means you tap Q once.
  • Keys in round brackets () mean that you hold the key. For example, (HOLD Q) means you hold Q until the next step. (PERMAHOLD Q) means you hold Q throughout the combo.
  • Keys separated by a “+” symbol should be used at the same time. For example, [Q] + [LMB] means you tap Q and LMB at the same time.
  • Keys separated by a “>” symbol show the order you should follow out the steps. For example, [Q] + [LMB] > [F] means you tap Q and LMB at the same time, then tap F
  • [LMB] refers to left-clicking with your mouse, [RMB] refers to right-clicking with your mouse.

ABSOLUTE SKILLS

Below are the recommended Absolute Skills you should take:

Absolute: Mass Destruction – Requires level 56 (10 Skill Points)
Absolute: Twisted Collision – Requires level 57 (25 Skill Points)
Absolute: Roaring Tiger – Requires level 59 (35 Skill Points)
Absolute: Elbow Edge – Requires level 56 (18 Skill Points)

Optional Absolute Skills you can take if you have extra skill points:

Absolute: Rage Hammer – Requires level 60 (40 Skill Points)
Absolute: Rib Crusher – Requires level 57 (18 Skill Points)



RABAM SKILLS

Level 56
Unbridled Wrath – Requires [Rage Hammer V] and [Roaring Tiger V]
Nature’s Wrath – Requires [Rage Hammer V] and [Triple Flying Kick V] (Preferred Choice)

I would recommend trying out both of these skills and testing which you prefer. It really comes down to personal preference. Nature’s Wrath is a more popular PVP choice because of the Evasion, Accuracy and Attack Speed buffs, even though Unbridled Wrath deals more pure damage with a large AoE area and 100% crit.

Level 57
Iron Fist Fury – Requires [Fist of True Strength III] and [Fist Fury IV]
Perfect Blow Requires [Fist of True Strength III] and [Elbow Edge III]  (Preferred Choice)

Both of the Rabam skills have low damage in PVE and will rarely be used. For PVP however, Iron Fist Fury is considered a good choice because of the knock down and super armor on the skill. Perfect Blow is also a good choice because it is a mobility skill that has a Frontal Guard and CC.  In general, Perfect Blow is a more preferred choice because of it’s flexibility, but you should experiment with both if you have enough skill points and work out which skill matches your playstyle best.



WEAPONS/ARMOR

The best weapons in the game are currently dropped from World Bosses.
For more information on this click here to view our World Bosses guide.

Primary Weapons:

 icon Rosar Gauntlet
The Rosar Gauntlet is what you should be aiming for to level your character. You should enhance it to at least +7 for leveling and then PRI or higher as soon as possible if you don’t have Liverto/Kzarka. Aim to buy a +15 Rosar Gauntlet if you can to save your enhancing resources. Ideally you will want to buy or make it ultimate (yellow) to close the AP difference as well. Make sure you also make use of the gem slots to get your Attack Speed and Critical Hit up to 5.

Another alternative is the Styd Gauntlet for leveling if you are having trouble obtaining a Rosar Guantlet. This weapon can be bought from a Blacksmith and will give you 18 – 22 AP as well as a lot of accuracy. 

 icon Liverto Gaunlet
Liverto is the second strongest mainhand and much easier to obtain and enhance than Kzarka. If you have enough silver to buy it at +15 or higher then you should to save enhancing materials. You will want to upgrade it to PRI or higher as soon as possible. I would recommend getting it to TRI at most and then you really want to switch to Kzarka. The liverto has slightly more AP than Rosar, but it also has a Critical Hit Rate +3 item effect. 

icon Kzarka Gaunlet
Kzarka is the BiS main weapon for all classes for PVP and is a requirement for end game PVP. It has the same AP as Liverto but more accuracy and an Attack Speed +3 item effect.


Offhand Weapons:


iconLeather Vambrace 
The Leather Vambrace is currently considered the best offhand to go with if you are a beginner, especially if you don’t have Bheg’s gloves or Liverto/Kzarka, because of it’s accuracy. It is a good selection, especially for PvP orientated players and also offers a small amount of evasion and damage reduction. Unless you want to go for Full Evasion/Damage Reduction, then this is the offhand you should use. You should enhance it to at least +7 for leveling and then PRI or higher as soon as possible. Aim to buy a +15 if you can to save your enhancing resources. Ideally you will want to buy or make it ultimate (yellow) as well.

The Vambrace of Sealed Magical Power is freely obtainable from Black Spirit quests as well and a weaker version of Leather Vambrace. If you are new it may be worth checking if it is currently an upgrade, but eventually you will need Leather Vambrace anyway. 

icon Rosar Vambrace 

Rosar Vambrace is your defensive build offhand if you want to go for Full Evasion tank build. This build is good for large scale PVP but not recommended for PVE unless against low evasion mobs or mobs you are much higher level than. It will give you a high amount of Evasion and a small amount of Damage Reduction and AP as well. 

iconIron Vambrace 

Iron Vambrace is your defensive build offhand if you want to go for Full Damage Reduction tank build. This build is good for large scale PVP but not recommended for PVE unless against low evasion mobs or mobs you are much higher level than. It will give you a high amount of Damage Reduction and a small amount of Evasion and AP as well. 

icon Kutum Vambrace
Kutum Vambrace gives a mixture of AP and DP with added monster damage and accuracy. It also has an item effect of 10% ignore resistance and 2 gem slots. The monster damage and accuracy on this weapon make it best in slot for PVE. It’s also a viable option for PVP as a hybrid tank/damage build, but will deal less damage than using a Leather Vambrace/Nouver.


icon Nouver Vambrace 
Nouver is currently considered the best in slot choice for Mystic once you are at end game gear with a good amount of AP and accuracy already. You should aim to have at least 350 accuracy with this offhand before switching to it. The offhand gives pure AP and an all resistance +10% item effect. I would also advise keeping your Leather offhand or a Evasion/DR alternative which you can switch to when needed. You should be using your Leather offhand against high evasion opponents because of it’s high accuracy, then Nouver is better against players with higher damage reduction.



Awakening Weapons: 

icon Kamalam Cestus 
This is a green grade weapon which is sold by some Blacksmith/Arms dealers. You will also receive a +10 Kamalam Cestus when you complete your awakening quests. This weapon has lower AP than the other options but it is still viable for PvE due to it’s Damage Against Every Species +5 item effect. It’s also much cheaper to enhance and repair max durability than the other options so if you don’t have a lot of money or participate in a lot of PvP, then this weapon is a good alternative until you get Dandelion.

icon Baconaua Cestus 
Baconaua Cestus is a blue grade weapon which is given to you when you complete the awakening quests. The only ways to obtain this weapon is through the quest or night vendor. This makes is hard to obtain and it can be more expensive to repair. The awakening weapon is good for PvP and has higher AP than the Kamalam Cestus. It also has a Damage Against Human +7 item effect which is good for PVP.

icon Dandelion Cestus 
Dandelion weapons are the BiS awakening weapons. It has much higher AP but it is only obtainable from a Dandelion Weapon Box (Karanda world boss loot) or from the night vendor.


Armor:

The best armor in the game is currently dropped from Bosses. You will want to aim to get the boots and gloves first.


icon Griffon’s Helmet (helmet)  – dropped from Griffons in Kamaslyvia. 
icon Dim Tree Spirit’s Armor (chest) – dropped from Dim Tree Spirit.
icon Bheg’s Gloves (gloves)  dropped from Bheg.
icon Urugon’s Shoes (shoes)   – dropped from Monastery Leader.

icon Giath’s Helmet (helmet)  alternative choice – dropped from Giath.
icon Muskan’s Shoes (shoes)  alternative choice– dropped from Monastery Leader.



The best in slot armor for Mystic is Griffon’s Helmet, Dim Tree Spirit’s Armor, Bheg’s Gloves and Urugon’s Shoes. 

The full set will give you Maximum MP/WP/SP +100, Maximum HP +200, Max Stamina +200, Attack Speed +1, Casting Speed +1, Movement Speed +1 and All Resistances 5%. You will also get higher Accuracy, Evasion and Damage Reduction from these pieces.

In the mean time you should be using one of the following armor sets:

A popular armor choice for Mystic is to go full Grunil set because it increases your maximum HP and will give you 2 socket slots on each piece, along with extra AP +7 set bonus. Another advantage of using this set is that it is viable on any class, allowing you to swap to another class easily.

 Full  Heve set is also a very popular choice because it has an easier transition to boss gear whilst. As soon as you get one boss item with Grunil, you lose the set bonuses which Grunil weaker.

Another alternative is to use is the Lemoria set if you have Liverto. It is great for leveling because of its set bonuses and has slightly more DP than Grunil. 

ACCESSORIES

There are a lot of choices available when it comes to accessories and it really depends on what you can get your hands on. The accessories you use at end game also relies heavily on all your other gear/build and also your target. It’s best to have a mixture of accessories for AP, DP and Accuracy. Use BDOPLANNER.COM to help you build your gear. At end game you want to aim for 400 – 450 accuracy then focus on AP and DP.


Earrings:

If available I recommend using the Asula’s Crimon Eye Earrings (Asula Set) if you are new to the game, this gives you 7 AP and also has very good set bonuses. Otherwise use Bares earrings for 2 AP (or other AP accessories) and switch to Witch’s Earring as soon as possible for the 5 AP.

You want to aim for DUO/TRI Witch’s Earrings (9 AP/11 AP) before swapping to a DUO Tungrade Earrings (11 AP) because of the huge difference in cost. Tungrade Earrings are BiS earrings.

Red Coral Earrings are also very good on mystic if you are lacking accuracy because they give a lot of accuracy and also have a bit of AP. I would only recommend using Red Coral Earrings if the earring is DUO or higher though or you will miss out on too much AP.

The Capotia Earring is also worth mentioning. It is available at level 62+ only but is a very good earring because of it’s high AP. It makes a perfect backup for enhancing and is essentially a free TRI Tungrad Earring.

Another viable option is the Manos Ruby Earrings if you would like to go for a DR/Evasion build.

Rings:
If available I recommend using the Asula’s Crimon Eye Ring (Asula Set) if you are new to the game, this gives you 7 AP and 2 DP as well as damage reduction and strong set bonuses. Otherwise use Bares rings for 2 AP (or other AP accessories) and switch to Mark of Shadow as soon as possible for the 5 AP.

Sahazad’s Ring of Monarch is also available through the Valencia part I and II quests. It can’t be enhanced but it is a good alternative until you can get Ring of Crescent Guardian or Mark of Shadow to PRI/DUO.

The Capotia Ring is also worth mentioning. It is available at level 61+ only but is a very good ring because of it’s high AP. It makes a perfect backup for enhancing and is essentially a free TRI Ring of Crescent Guardian.

Another viable option is the  Ring of Cadry Guardian if you would like to go for a DR/Evasion build.

Necklace:

If available I recommend using the Asula’s Crimon Eye Necklace (Asula Set) if you are new to the game, this gives you 11 AP and 3 DP as well as damage reduction and an amazing set bonus. Otherwise use Bares Necklace for 4 AP and enhance this to DUO/TRI for 8 AP/10 AP. Enhancing a Bares Necklace is much cheaper than using an un-enhanced BiS necklace. You then want to swap to a DUO Serap’s or PRI Ogre/Tungrade.

Another viable option is the Sicil’s Necklace if you would like to go for a DR/Evasion build.

Belt:

 If available I recommend using the Asula’s Crimon Eye Belt (Asula Set) if you are new to the game, this gives you 6 AP and has amazing set bonuses. Otherwise use Bares Belt for 2 AP (or other AP accessories) and swap to Tree Spirit Belt, Belt of Shultz the Gladiator or Basilisk’s Belt as soon as possible for more AP.

You want to aim for a PRI/DUO Tree Spirit Belt before swapping to DUO Basilisk’s because it is much cheaper and easier to get hold of. Basilisk’s Belt and Valtarra are very good belts but Tungrade is currently the best in slot.

Another viable option is the Centaurus Belt if you would like to go for a DR/Evasion build.

EXAMPLE GEAR BUILDS

I highly recommend using BDOPLANNER.COM to help you plan your build and track your progression.

The build you choose completely depends on your playstyle and what role you want to play in PVP. Below are some example builds to help you decide what is best for you.

Leveling build: link
Here is what to aim for when leveling and before you get your boss gear. You should focus on enhancing your weapons first and then your armor. Try to also ultimate all your pieces as soon as possible, especially your armor because it will give quite a big DP boost.




Mid-Tier build: link
Here is a mid-tier build to use if you are looking to improve your gear before you get boss gear. You may want to use Red Coral Earrings or Witch’s Earrings instead but they can be quite expensive compared to the rest of the gear.





End-game PVP build [FULL AP]: link
Here is what to eventually aim for if you are going for a full AP damage build. It takes a long time to get to this stage, and there are lots of small improvements and other accessories you will use along the way, but this is ideally your end game build for PVP damage. You may want to use one Red Coral Earring instead if you don’t have 400 – 440 total accuracy already. 

This build is useful against glass cannon classes, such as Dark Knight and Wizard/Witch, but lacks survivability compared to the other builds. 




End-game PVP build [HYBRID]: link
Here is what to eventually aim for if you are going for a hybrid AP and defensive build. It takes a long time to get to this stage, and there are lots of small improvements and other accessories you will use along the way. If you are switching to the hybrid build from AP, then prioritize Centaurus Belt and Sicil’s Necklace in that order for maximum efficiency.

Hybrid build is a nice mixture between offence and defense. You will have slightly less damage but more survivability. In general this is a good build to start with if you’re not sure which build suits your playstyle, and is the most popular choice out of the viable builds.




End-game PVP build [FULL EVASION]: link
Here is what to eventually aim for if you are going for a full Evasion build. It takes a long time to get to this stage, and this particular build uses items which are not included in the other builds, such as Muskan’s Shoes, Heve Helmet, and Rosar Vambraces. I would recommend starting with the AP (or hybrid build) then getting Centaurus Belt, Sicil’s Necklace, Manos Earrings, and finally Cadry Rings last.

This build is full defense and perfect for defending your team. If you have glass cannon classes on your team, should as a Wizard, you should stay close to them and focus on protecting them. This build is mostly used for node wars and siege PVP.




End-game PVP build [FULL DR]: link
Here is what to eventually aim for if you are going for a full Damage Reduction build. It takes a long time to get to this stage, and this particular build uses items which are not included in the other builds, such as Iron Vambraces. I would not recommend starting with this build, and only trying it out yourself when your other gear is at a high enhance. It is particularly good against classes which stack a lot of AP. For your accessories, you should prioritize Centaurus Belt, Sicil’s Necklace, Manos Earrings, and finally Cadry Rings last.

This build is full defense and perfect for defending your team. If you have glass cannon classes on your team, should as a Wizard, you should stay close to them and focus on protecting them. This build is mostly used for node wars and siege PVP.




End-game PVE build: link
Here is what to aim for high level PVE, such as Pila Ku, Gyfin or Aakman. Kutum is very important for end game PVE and can also be viable in PVP for a hybrid gear build. 




CONSUMABLES

When grinding, use EXP Elixirs and Milk Tea, then other food of your choice such as Margoria Seafood and Serendia Special. It really depends on your preference.

For your food rotation in node wars/siege, I would recommend using  Knight Combat RationsKamaslyvia SpecialValencia Special and then King of Jungle Hamburger in that order.

The recipes for these are:

ICON RESULT INGREDIENTS USE
Knight Combat Rations Dark Pudding x1, Ham Sandwich x1, Fruit Wine x1, Meat Croquette x1 All Attack +5, Damage against human race +5, All Damage Reduction +5 for 120 minutes
icon Special Kamasylvia Meal Rainbow Button Mushroom Sandwich x1, Coconut Pasta x1, Fig Pie x1 , Fruit Wine x2, Rainbow Button Mushroom Cheese Melt x1 Max HP +150, Max Stamina 200, Back Attack Damage +5% for 110 minutes
Special Valencia Meal Teff Sandwich x1, King of Jungle Hamburger x1, Couscous x1, Fig Pie x2, Date Palm Wine x2 Nullifying all Resistances +4%, Resistance against all Debuffs +4%, All Evasion +10, Decrease of damages from Monsters -6% for 110 minutes
icon King of Jungle Hamburger Teff Bread x4, Pickled Vegetables x2, Lion Meat x4, Nutmeg x3 Ignores All Resistance +3%, Critical Hit Damage +5% for 110 minutes


If you don’t have 5 Critical Hit Rate then you may want to swap Margoria Seafood for the Kamaslyvia Meal because it’s very important to have 5 Critical Hit Rate. Make sure you use Margoria Seafood last because it has the smallest duration and you want to keep all your buffs up as long as possible.

The recipe for Margoria Seafood Meal is:
