Introduction
============
Hello, I am matrixdragon, it is the first time I am making a sage/scholar faq.
This is a new type of sage compair to other sages, it has a lot of difference
which will be explan later, elemental sage functions more like wizards than
sage because this types of sage is play elemental boits skills and some small
area skills and they have no elemental area skills. So lets begin the faq.

=====================================
The elemental sage/scholar difference
=====================================
There are many types of sages/scholars in the world of ragnarokonline. As said
earlier, this type if sages use element boit spells and small area skills. So
what good does this sages do? First thing is they can lvl up more faster and
they don't need to spent so much skills points on the sage skills. Second thing
is they don't do so much help in guild war but it will be explan later what use
are they in guild war. There are two types of elemental sages, here they are.

Type 1: Elemental sage with elemental area skills:
Uses mainly boit skills but they have one element area skill that is magnetic
earth that can surport the guild war. But this type of sage have insuffident
skill points, so it is best to wait till the scholar stage before doing this.

Type2: Elemental sage with no elemental area skills:
Uses mainly boit skills but this is a element specialist that uses five
elements. Fire, water, wind(lighting), earth and mind, are the main five
elements they use and they usually have complete lvl 10 boit skills compair to
those with elemental area skills.

============================
The path to sage and scholar
============================
First thing when you log in, you will find yourself in the novice training
ground. It is very easy, just follow the instructions there and you can
complete it. After that, train to job lvl 10 and go to geffen to change to
mage. After all this, train to job lvl 40 or 50 and proceed to juno. You can go
to juno ether by walking or use kapra at aldebaran to teleport.

you can escape both.

-------------------
The path to scholar
-------------------
The path to scholar is called reborn now lets look what should you do for this.

Requirement for character before Reincarnation

1: Character must be of level 2 Profession (2-1 or 2-2 Job)
2: Character must reach base level 99.
3: Character's Job level must reach job level 50. (All skill points must
already be assigned). Only character who fulfills the 3 requirements above can
perform reincarnation.
4: Clear everything in the inventory slot and unequipped everything you have in
the equipment slot. (Pecopeco, Falcon, Push Cart should be unequipped. Rings
should be taken off first.)

Location for Reincarnation:
Juno Castle Procedure. Find and talk to Metavis Seith (yuno_in02 88 164) and
pay 1,285,000 zenny to proceed to read the incantation in the Book of Ymir
(yuno_in02 93 205)

Follow the instructions carefully, after all the process, you will
become a high novice.

Reincarnated Novice will be able to learn skills of Novice no matter player has
learned it before. Reincarnated 1st level profession will be able to learn
skills of 1st level profession no matter has learned it before. When player
reaches the stage for 2nd level job, proceed to the Reincarnation Site for the
Book of Ymir in Juno(yuno_in02 93 205)
and change to scholar.

PS: Please take note that reborn charecters are two times more harder to train.

===============
Level up sports
===============
This part tells you where you can level up, now lets look at them.

Lvl 1 to job change: Porings or find people to tank, it is very hard to train a
novice with no STR and flee rate.

After job change: Porings or poporings when your level reach higher and you
have the skill fire wall lvl 10 and fire boit lvl 5. It is best to ask people
to tank you once you complete job change to speed up the process.

Lvl 30-40: Orc dungen lvl 1 or outside orc dungen lvl 1. You will need the fire
wall skills and fire boit, if you chose to train at the dungen, you will need
soul strike. Or you can train at anthell with fire boit. You can also ask
people to tank you allagaters if you want more faster.

Lvl 40 to job change: This is the hardest part of all, I recomand rush at GH
prison with soul strike and fire wall on zombie prisoners and injustice. But if
you want the safter way, train at orc dungen or anthell to job 40 or 50.

After job change complete: When you complete your sage job upgrade, go to GH
prison to rush all your lvl to 99, it is possible since there are no more place
left to train. Use soul strike and fire wall against zombie prisoner and
injustice and use fire wall to block them. Once you have heaven drive lvl 5,
use fire wall and heaven drive to take down hunter flys and use fire boit lvl
10 and fire wall against rybio. This is how I complete my sage to lvl 99. After
all this, you can proceed to reborn and again you repeat the process until you
reach lvl 99 scholar.

===================================
Elemental sage/scholar in guild war
===================================
This is the most hardest job you can do. Elemental sage/scholars only can fight
monsters but not people, but is it possible? Yes you can go to war but you can
do one thing, that is to help the wizards to defend the entrance by spawning
tunder stoms and heaven drives. For those with element area skills, use
magnetic earth or deluge to let the wizards cast water ball while spawning
heaven drives. You can also spawn fire walls and on sight to detect clocking
enermies. The best thing about you is you can dispell enermy's skills and spell
breaker the enermy's casting. But you must party with a devotion paladin or
crusader for longer survival chances.

========================================================
Weapons, cards and equipments for elemental sage/scholar
========================================================
It does not matter welther you are a sage or scholar, their equipments is still
the same. Now lets look at them.
