Mages?

#1damn_you_darioPosted 11/29/2012 10:23:36 PM
So it's becoming apparent to me now, that Mages are possibly the worst class in the game. Their attacks are slower than Hunter's which is not ideal for glass cannon crit builds, while Hunters can do fine with it.
I think the only saving grace they have is their Epic Weapons.
So which one is better in your opinions?
Bone Staff or Staff of Destruction?
I'm currently farming for Bone Staff, gotten one with crappy skills, trying to get a Bone Staff with it's unique skill.
I have never seen a player with Staff of Destruction before, I know the 2nd unique skill it has is pretty crappy, but the first one seems to be SP related. Does anyone here have the full description for Staff of Destruction's skills?

Nu'uh!!
Agree that hunter got higher damage potential LATER ON.
But, imo, mages are better early on and on Air Combat!
Hunters lose so many attack on air, not to mention the long charge time...
On the ground, Hunters kick mages' ass, though...
And It's HUNTER'S epic weapon that's saving their asses, not Mage's

Sorry don't know about Staff of Distraction's unique skills. I do know about Bone Staff, though

Yeah I'm trying to get those unique skills from the Staff, so far all I got is 2 Bone Staffs with Energy Coat lvl 5 and Staff Enhancement...
Also in the air it depends who you're facing. If it's Grendel for example then Hunters win hands down, because all they need to do is jump until they reach the head's height, then use O without pressing a direction for that insane rapid fire attack.

I see...
I never liked hunter's air combos since I usually messed up the button and use the dive attack.
That's why I always thought that mages would do better (than Hunters) against Grendel (and Hrungnir and Surt)
Guess, I'm just impatient.
Gonna try this strategy out later XP

I can't stand hunters, I much prefer the mage for ranged. While jumping you just have to use basic then special attack for their fireball that has great range and damage, plus the chance of catching them on fire, you have much more AP to run around with, and I feel like they are tougher but I'm not 100% sure on that.

I got lucky the first time the Staff of distraction drops on me. It has a unique mage first skill (can't remember the name now) that acts like one SP recycle but also boosts magic damage. The second skill is Staff Aptitude.

Hehe this class is obviously not useless. I am hitting 600-800 damage per hit (outside of ds mode). Guess what, i am hitting 1.7k-2k in my ds mode & each storm gust deals around 1-5k to 2k per spin, so the storm gust hits around 5 times each, you do the maths...

I think Staff of distraction is clearly the better staff to go.

I made a mistake. The skill is called "enhance magic strength" that boosts all staff damage & increase SP acquisition.
