Why A Mage/Pagan?
Mage/ Pagan is the hardest class to build/pvp, You have to know exactly what it is you want to be build wise and you have to know your skills. I would highly recommend that a player (even your first toon) stay in either the 15 or 30 pvp zones for a few before continue lvling.
With this being said, the Mage/Pagan class can be one of the most deadliest classes there are in terms of attack. They are a range attacker and can deal high
amounts of damage.
It is extremely difficult to be a hard hitter AND survive. Unless you have uber uber gear you have to decide one or the other. There are a few things you can do to stay alive longer then your small hp allows which have already been mentioned but doesn't hurt to repeat!
Health Assist (max lvl 2) + Diversion + Potential Motive = Self Heal
There are many Aoe's to this class which makes it simple to either PVE or PVP with this toon.
The beauty of being a caster is simple, you have the potential of being a force to be dealt with, even if you are not on the front line.
BuildsWhile most Mages/Pagans I am told like to go full int, this also makes you a glass cannon.
If the formulas are still correct the breakdown to stating and linking a Mage/Pagan looks something like this.
- 1 Int = 1.6 magic attack power
- 1 Wis = 5 MP, 1.3 magic attack power, 1 resist
- 1 Luc = 0.2% critical hit chance, 0.05% critical hit evasion, 0 - 1.5 critical damage, 0.3 ranged attack power
This class will use a dagger or a staff, however you will find that most prefer the staff due to the basic stats on them.
