ALTERNATE SKILL BUILD:

Novice

Get Magic Arrow, Burning Hand and Freeze to lv9. This is to allow faster skill training as what affects skill level is how frequent u cast your skills. You may choose other novice skills(arrows) but i personally prefer Burning Hand and Freeze because they have very low cooldown at lv9(burning hand 1.1s, freeze 1s) and very easy to combo. Reason for leaving these skills at lv9 = lowest cooldown time. Also, get Regeneration and thatís it for Novice.

Apprentice

Reaching apprentice allows you to learn the blasts. Donít bother. This is because you will delete them anyway. However, get Dig Bomb

to lv9 because itís limit 2(AOE) and knocks down the enemy. Good for saving your arse when you get whooped by many mobs. For other apprentice skills like Icicle Shower, donít even look at them.

Regular

Now the regular rank. What skills can you learn lemme see.. Oh the lances. Just learn 2 of the lances, Terra Lance and Fire Lance . They have higher DPS compared to the other lances at lv20. Donít even bother touching Hydro Disk or Wind Cutter. However, if you got the alz and want to train faster, you may get it. And i was jw if Weaken is under regular. If it is, learn and max it. Youíll surely need this one.

Expert

This is when your cannons come. But firstly, get Hardness and max it asap. Lightning Strike is useless as itís too slow to be of any use. Acid Trap is good at lower levels, but start to get useless at the higher levels. Itís too low damage at higher levels and for it to be useful, you have to level acid trap to 20 for the max poison effect. And itíll cost you a bomb to delete it. So, simply, donít learn it. Get Stone Cannon, Fire Cannon, Lightning Cannon, maybe Aqua Cannon as well. Stone, fire and aqua are usually used for PVP while lightning is more for PVE til your gm comes.

A.Expert

Only 4 skills: Vacuum, Chain Explosion, Energy Field and Sharpness. and whatís the point of sharpness? for a wizard to punch? so donít bother unless you wanna buff your mates and the points to spare. If you got the alz and want to train fast, learn all the other 3 as these skills are good at the low levels. Energy Field is a MUST HAVE because it has a nice cast time and stuns. However, i do not recommend Vacuum cos itís too slow, in fact **** slow. I deleted it after killing a wriggleleaf. Also, for CE, itís good for certain unstunnable bosses(those bosses in the patren quest) and just get it to 9 in my opinion.

Master

Get Blink and Force Increase at master. Blink is awesome when you cast it with Dash. ultimate mobility ftw. Hailstorm is good for PVE purposes and i got it to lv20 and PVE became easier. nice damage, reasonable cooldown and knock downs the enemy. Get the resist knockback buff later in the game cos for now, we canít stack 2 spirit buffs and so the force increase buff will be cancelled if you cast the resist buff.

A.Master

Get Arctic Field . Itís one of our ultimate PVE skills and works great. And for High Regeneration get it if you got the alz. Good for PVP as max high regen gives 70hp per 2 seconds, quite a huge lot of hp regenerated. However, please note that high regen has a dumb duration of 60s (after lv80 rank up quest) and a GREAT cooldown of 180s. oh well.

G.Master

Wowowowow what do we have here o.O? of course our ultimate skill of all. EXTREME DUAL CANNON. GET IT TO AT LEAST LV9 ASAP! With a stun rate of 75% for 5 seconds, nice damage and limit 3, it makes a great PVE & PVP skill. also learn spirit intension, our very first party exclusive skill. more of a pvp based buff skill, but just get it since we will have enough points for everything. once weíre in a party, all our party skills can be casted regardless of the presence of any nearby party mates.

Completer

With completer incoming, Space Collapse is out. seriously lol@SC. Reason: although itís limit 4, it isnít like AF, and hits the monsters all around you. AF is limit 4 around us, but SC is limit 4 around the monster. in simple words, SC may not always hit the monsters behind you if the monster you casted yr SC on is in front of you. the only great thing about SC is the 80% stun..<3 other than that, it sarks.

Anyway, it still makes a good PVE skill. at least level 12 i would say. if youíre sooo into PVP then get it to level 20 after transcender is out. since comp lv20 will be deadly as a finisher in PVP. Btw also get Mass Restore.

Transcender

This oneís pretty obvious. max both Raise Spirit and Art of Force Control

.

For sword rank:

Just go to any weapon merchant, get a normal blade, then go to any instructor and learn all the sword skills you can. Now go to any monster and start spamming your flash draws and impact stabs. Youíll get to apprentice very soon. serious =.=Ē Get dash at apprentice (duh, isnít that what you want?) and max it. At lv50, when you can go to port lux, you can also choose to get the Change Force upgrade skill (magic to sword) which i will advise you to learn after maxing out your magic (i.e. Transcender 210/210). Itís also proven in the EU forums that spamming 3 sword skill combos is the fastest way to level sword. In other words, train your magic first or if you prefer to balance out both sword and magic ranks, then use a normal sword to train instead of change force.

Upgrade Skills

Vitality Mastery

Reflex or Defensive Sense

Force Control

Sixth Sense

Ruling Force

Damage Absorb

SO, IN A NUTSHELL:

Magic Arrow: Lv9

Burning Hand: Lv9

Freeze: Lv9

^the above skills are for skill leveling, you may choose other novice skills.

Regeneration: Lv4

Weaken: Lv20

Terra Lance: Lv20

Fire Lance: Lv20

Hardness: Lv20

Stone Cannon: Lv20

Fire Cannon: Lv20

Energy Field: Lv18/19 (up to you but not 20, cooldown too long)

Force Increase: Lv20

Blink: Lv9

Hailstorm: i got this one to Lv20.

Arctic Field: Lv12/15 (higher than 15 has retarded cooldown)

Extreme Dual Cannon: Lv9/12 (12 recommended)

Space Collapse: Lv12 at least.

Max all other buffs not mentioned above.

the remaining slots may be for skills like acid trap, vacuum, etc. IMO itís pointless though.
