Ragnarok Online: Valkyrie Uprising: Mage Wizard Stats and Skill Build


       This Mage and Wizard build will focus on using Magical Attacks to deal massive damages to monsters. If your gameplay style involves elemental spells and hit and runs, then this job class is for you.

       Refer below to determine which stats and skill build is best for your playing style. Playing solo is possible, but if you can find a high DPS party with a decent Tank, it would be a lot faster.

- Mage and Wizard Stats Builds -

Understanding Ratios:
     - EXAMPLE: INT 3 : 2 SPR means for every 3 INT, you should aim for 2 SPR.
Example: If you have 60 INT, you should aim for 40 SPR, or if you have 20 SPR, you should aim for 30 INT.

     - Note that Ratios doesn't need to be exact always. Allocate the way you want it.
Example: Go for 30 INT first then go for 20 SPR next, so in the end, you still have 3 INT : 2 SPR ratio.

Main Stats to Focus On:
     - INT: Increases your Magic Attack damage output and Max SP pool.
     - VIT: Increases your Max HP (plus higher HP Regen while sitting), and reduces
Physical damage received (after calculating Defense).
     - SPR: Increases Magic Defense, Fear resistance, and SP Regen bonus (optional).

Stats Allocation: Target Ratios and Builds
Note: Builds are based from Skills, and Stats from equips/items that you will get later.
Choose what you think is best for your playing style, time and in-game money.

     - [PURE INT] Stats Ratio
     - Glass cannon build that purely focuses on MATK and spell casting.
     - It has low survivability, but damages can be avoided by doing hit and runs, cliff
sniping, support skills, partying with tanks and/or healers, relying to equips, and more.
     - In demand class for monster mobbing or boss hunting parties because of your
very high damage output!

     - [INT 7 : 3 VIT] Stats Ratio
     - Damage output is still good, paired with some DEF, MDEFDamage Reduction
to help you survive some damages while casting AOE spells. Best paired with support skills like Energy Coat.
     - Dependent to equips and items to increase damage output (MATK).

that, quickly move your character away from the monster.

     - Understanding the Elements: This will help you learn the strengths and
weaknesses of every monster in the game. Go here: Monster Elemental Properties

- Stats to Get from Equips, Cards and Pets -

Damage Output!
     - (INT + or MATK +) = The more, the better!
     - (ELEMENTAL ATK +%) = See explanation below.
     - (MaxSP +) Special Power/Mana = The more, the better!.

Note on Weapon Cards!
     - Example: Equipping a Pink Bear Card (FIRE ATK + 1%), means that you will
deal 1% more damage only to FIRE monsters, not deal 1% more damage with your FIRE skills! Collect weapon sets for specific monsters (optional).

Survivability!
     - (MaxHP +) Health Points = Stop if you are comfortable with your damage intake.
     - (DEF + ) Physical Defense = The more, the better!
     - (MDEF +) Magic Defense = The more, the better!

       I recommend that you check the "Auction Machine NPC" (buy and sell
market), Weapon/Armor/Accessory Artificer NPCs (item crafting), Cash ShopEvent Manager, and Rankings for sample items and their stats.
