Arullo is ground targeted and is not blocked by Magnetic Earth.

Got myself an orlean gown and it saved me from buying an expensive phen card from the hypermart. And I got a neuralizer to change my skills, I can feel that I suck from fire monsters.

Good day.

Class: 99/70 Scholar
Goal: WOE disabler but can dis damage whenever necessary
Funds: Wealthy enough?
Gears: Can be adjusted based from suggestions
Stats: I totally have no clue after the Renewal.

I have a scholar with 1-1-1-1-1 status just after a reset before I've quit. She is on 99/70. I want to make a WOE Scholar with the main role of disabling. However, it'd be really good if she can dis some pretty good damage when necessary. Is there such a build? Would is be possible to ask for some advice on the status allocation and skill as well? Thank you.

Hard to choose skillbuild. But for WoE it's ok to have smth like this:
http://irowiki.org/~himeyasha/skill4/sor.html?10qoAnfkeKcskAbfqEkErAeAqEabdnafrAqshsapaAdn1cHcY
Stats are 110 int, 110 dex, 30 luk, rest vit.
Gears are nydhogg, variants, d.robe, d.ring(smokie), bg medal, valk shield, cat ear beret(or what do you have) and combat knife for defence, and skull cap + thorned staff of darkness/KvM/Bellum SoD or smth for damage.

Thank you for the response! :)

I wonder though, wouldn't adding more Luk increase my chance of survival during skirmishes in the WOE? Luk does lower the chance of being affected by some status effects right?

30 luk is enough. Luk lowers chance of Howling of Mandragora, this is very dangerous.

Hello All,

I haven't played my sage in about 6 years, but am looking for something to trans with my friend's priest and this is my only remaining 99 char. I'm clueless on post-renewal builds, so I'd appreciate any help you can give :)

Class: 99 Sage, soon to trans
Goal: Leveling scholar, caster sorc
Funds: ~700m
Gears: Currently have all of the basics, also have +12 Skull Cap & +12 TsOD, +10 Evil Bone Wand for when she's younger.
Stats: Blank slate

I'll be leveling the whole time with my priest friend, so a caster build that does well with support would be appreciated. I'd like to have indulge/soul exhale for grouping at 70+ TI's.

If any of you have saved builds at the calc (http://irowiki.org/~himeyasha/skill4/sor.html?1099993cHcY) that you think would work for me, please do! I'm super clueless about scholar/sorc builds.

I don't mind resetting before Sorc if need be, if there are two different caster/support builds to shoot for.

diethoney,

For now, just create a temporary skill build. You'll want all of the  Bolt skills as a Mage, and Fire Wall is helpful too. As a Scholar you'll  want to get Double Bolt and Heaven's Drive. Get whatever else you'd like.

Stick with that build until you're a Sorcerer with your first couple job levels. Then reset your skills.

In terms of your Sorcerer skills, it depends on what you want to be able to do. Leveling? MVPing? PvP? WoE?



In terms of stats, you'll want to prioritize them in this order: INT, DEX, VIT

I'd say, by level 100, you'll want your stats to look like this:

int: 99
dex: 90
vit: 50

Even if you are a support build, you'll need to have high INT to increase your SP pool. Since Renewal, Soul Exhale only provides 50% of your current SP.



By the time you hit 150, you'll want to have 100 total vit (95+5 with the job bonus).

Some people say to get max INT, whereas other people shy away from maxing  any stat. INT is beneficial to Sorcs in so many ways, it is very  tempting to max it. (from 110 to 120 base)

Your DEX should be high to very high. (from 100 to 120 base)

Distribute your other points as you like, or depending on what purpose  you need your Sorc to serve. LUK and AGI are going to give you better  status resistance. STR gives you better weight limit, and resistance to  Masquerades (because of weight limit) and reduces your enemy's Extreme  Vacuum duration.

Thank you so much for your help. I'll probably have more questions in the future when it comes time to fine tune my sorc build, but that won't be for some time.

So please don't troll me. Chii has a sorcerer, and she has Call Aqua 3, Call Ventus 3 and Call Agni 2. Am I able to use the spirits to endow Psychic Wave to corresponding elements? And which ones?

Clearly.

Check to make sure you have the right catalyst stones for the spirit you are trying to summon.

Level 1 summons require 3 of their elemental raw ore (eg. red blood)
Level 2 summons require 6 of their elemental raw ore
Level 3 summons require 1 of their elemental refined ore (eg. flame heart)
