Legacy Quest: Mage Stats and Skills Build - Wand and Staff Guide

Playing as a Mage requires using lots of dodge rolls to avoid enemy attacks. Accuracy might be a problem at the moment, but this can be compensated by pointing your character towards your targets right after a dodge roll and before attacking (this will avoid hitting nearby breakable objects).

As much as possible do not get hit and if ranged enemies are around, always move after releasing your first normal attack to avoid their attacks.

Legacy Quest Mage Stats and Skills
- Stats and Gears to Focus On -

Early Game (Normal and Tough)
   - Primary Stats: Health, Armor and Intellect
   - Always remember, a higher Lvl gear is always better in terms of base stats (Health, Armor and Int), regardless of their rarity or grade.

How to Farm Gears?
   - This is pretty straight forward, just collect high Lvl gears that you can, then craft the other gears that you don't have by using Tier 1 Cubelets.
   - Once you have a complete set of gears, save your T1 Cubelets and Convert them to Tier 2 for crafting better gears. To save inventory space, only convert if you need them for crafting.

   - Once you reach Tough Mode and unlock Hard Mode, start farming Gold, Soul and Cubelets on the Land of Demise - Hard Mode. Go and farm stages that you can, even if it's just on Land of Demise 1/12.

   - Craft a Weapon and Off-Hand first using T3 Cubelets, get the other gears by either crafting or from normal stages or Mini-boss stage drops.
   - Note: Mini-Bosses and Boss stages have higher chance to drop gears/chests with higher lvl, rarity or grade (Example Land of Demise 3/12).

   - Do this until Tough Mode becomes easy to beat.

Mid to Late Game (Hard and Above)
   - Health, Armor and Intellect
   - Now start adding in Critical Chance and Critical Damage.
   - Life on Hit and Mana on Hit are also great stats if you find one, very small bonuses but still helpful when stacked at higher levels (I think they nerfed this though).

How to Farm Gears?
   - This is where your farming life begins.
   - Unlock Brutal Mode and farm on Land of Demise stages, even if it's just on 1/12. Get T3 Cubelets there and convert them to T4, then craft another Weapon and Off-Hand gear.

   - So basically it's the same as the above method, unlock highest Mode that you can and farm Gold, Soul, and Cubelets there, with some gears and chests too if you are lucky.
   - Note: Mini-Bosses and Boss stages have higher chance to drop gears/chests with higher lvl, rarity or grade (Example Land of Demise 3/12).

   - Do this until Hard Mode is easy to beat, then repeat same method until end game.

How to Farm Gems and Orbs?
   - Also use Gems and Orbs from here on to increase or add stat bonuses, rarity or grade. Farm them from the dungeon or through first time clear bonuses.
   - Can also be obtained from Mystery Boxes, use any keys.

How to Farm Skill Books?
   - Get them from Mini Boss stages but Boss stages have greater chances.
   - Recommended at least Hard Mode, yes because difficulty also affects the drop rates.
Legacy Quest Mage Stats and Traits
Hero Traits To Get
   - Hero Lvl 10: Any will do.
   - Hero Lvl 20: Wand, but Staff is ok too, your choice.
   - Hero Lvl 30, Any except Mana.
   - Hero Lvl 40, Any will do but preferably, go for either Fire or Arcane if this is your first hero. Why? because both are under the Path of Illumination (INT+), a talent path suitable for Mages.

   - Note: Arcane and Lightning are very good attribute choices for weapons, since most monsters doesn't have resistances over them.

What If My Hero Dies?
   - Happens, but only revive up to 3 times using Souls, above that will require 1000 Souls then 10,000 Souls so better give up. Roll what you can and continue, at least get a Wand or Staff.
Legacy Quest Soul talent Tree
Talent Tree - Souls Allocation
   - All Paths to Lvl 1, then upgrade Path of Illumination to Lvl 5 > Path of Mastery Lvl 3 > Max Path of Illumination > Upgrade Any next to help your other heroes.
- Skill Building Guide -

Note: I will not consider chance drop skills early game for now to make this guide friendly to all, but if you are lucky enough to get a nice skill recommended for higher levels then go on (check below for the list of skills for this build).

Early Game Active Skills (Normal and Tough)

Basic Active Skills
   - Fire Trap can be obtained from (Land of Demise - First Time Clear)
   - Stomp can be obtained from (Lost Oasis - First Time Clear).

   - Fire Trap will be your early AoE skill vs enemy mobs like bats, zombies, and more. Nice casting time, easy to use while moving around enemies.
   - Stomp is a very nice early game control skill with 2.5 seconds stun, enough to give your enemies 3 attack combos, just time it well to avoid damages. Hit, hit, hit, then cast Stomp when enemies managed to reach you, move away then attack again.
   - Both skills are very useful for tight places.

Early Game Passive Skills (Normal and Tough)

Early Game (Normal and Tough)
   - Molten Strikes can be obtained from (Anvil Mountain - First Time Clear).
   - Blademaster can be obtained from (Ferocious Forest - First Time Clear).

   - Molten Strikes is the only decent DPS skill for early game, but you may still switch this skill to any skill you would like to test though.
   - Blademaster looks vague on paper but this skill is a life saver! This is how it works: Do not get hit for 10 seconds to activate the shield (auto activates upon entering dungeons). While the orb is active, you'll get a 20% chance to parry 2 attacks, and the best part here is that even if you have 0% Parry chance, it will still work as is!

Other Notable Skills Early Game:
   - Toughness is ok until you get Blademaster.
   - Marksman: looks perfect for range heroes but the damage only increases if your target is near or farther away from the edge of your screen...which will not happen all the time, so skip this skill for now.

Early Game Ultimate Skills (Normal and Tough)

Early Game (Normal and Tough)
   - Bestial Roar can be obtained from (Anvil Mountain - First Time Clear).

   - Use Meteor Strike until you get this skill. Bestial Roar is your best choice at the moment and still viable until end game. Use it to clear bosses, tough enemies, and more. Try to attack as much as you can until the effect of the skill wears off.
Skills Book for Hard Mode
Mid to Late Game (Hard Mode and Above)
Note: You can do a lot of combinations from here on, check below for examples, mix and match to find what is suitable for your playing style.

Control Skills:
   - If you want full control, Frost Nova (First Time Clear (Stormshriek Castle - Tough) and Stomp are your best choice so far. Nice for surviving tight places, or for taking out those pesky ranged enemies up close.
   - Battle Leap lacks accuracy to hit, and Frost Trap and Blizzard doesn't have enough slow effect to be very useful, hopefully they will buff them up in the future.

DoT Trapper Skills: Nice once you have high damages and at least Lvl 2 upgrades.
   - Fire Trap, Poison Trap and Poison Dart. Others not mentioned are just too risky to cast around enemies that can hit hard, but Blizzard here is ok though if you can upgrade it more than the others.
   - Trapper Skills are quick to cast, and will also get a very low cooldown that you can spam at higher levels.

Mid to Late Game (Hard Mode and Above)

Life and Mana Stealer:
   - Life on Hit First Time Clear (Ferocious Forest - Tough) and Mana on Hit First Time Clear (Land of Demise - Hard)
   - Two great passive skills that can enhance your survivability and utilize active skills. The percentage taken is dependent to your damages, so the more damage you deal, the better.

Crit Chance Based Skills:
   - Frost Weapon and Spot Weakness First Time Clear (Drowned Meadows)
   - Two skills that can be used once you have around 25% Critical Chance Rate.

Optional Skills
   - Battle Rage gives extra boost once HP hits below 50%, awesome if you can keep your HP low but still risky. Can be paired with Life on Hit or an upgraded Frost Weapon/Spot Weakness.
   - Blademaster paired with Life on Hit if you want more survivability.
   - Molten Strikes paired with Spot Weakness if you like to deal multiple DoT damages.

Mid to Late Game (Hard Mode and Above)
   - Still Bestial Roar until perhaps they release something new...
   - Holy Aura is great against weaker enemies and bosses than you, but not so useful versus tough ones at higher levels.
