Wizard

The Wizard is a class which can cast offensive magic proficiently. Wizards get an array of spells to damage their enemies with. Wizards can charge spells to increase their damage, and they can summon elementals at higher levels. They have poor HP and defensive skills, but make up for this with their ability to do lots of damage in a short time.

At level 30, a Wizard may evolve into either an Archmage or an Elementalist. Wizards can choose one weapon type in which to be proficient. The primary attribute of the Wizard is Intelligence.

  • Detect Magic - Level:9 - Lag: 12 - Mana: 5
This spell allows the target to see magical auras on items, as well as giving a rough estimate on the mana reserves of other mobs. This can be cast on yourself as well as others.
  • Charge - Level: 10 - Lag: 8 - Mana: 30
The charge spell infuses the target with a charge, greatly improving the effects of the next spell used by the target.

This is an enfeebling spell that, when successful, puts the target to sleep. Failing, however, will provoke the target to attack. Recasting on an already-sleeping foe will reset the duration of the spell, keeping victims tranquilized longer. Sleep is considered to be of the "Charm" element - thus, any enemy who is immune to charm will not fall asleep.
  • Wizen - Level: 14 - Lag: 4 - Mana: 0

Syphon is an attack spell that absorbs the target's hp, mana and moves, converting everything drained into mana for the caster. When charged, Syphon deals 1.5x damage and therefore 50% more returned mana.
  • Conjure Elemental - Level: 26 - Lag: 12 - Mana: 40
This is spell that creates a follower for the caster. The type of pet is determined by the owner's innate. Based upon the owner's innate, each elemental has its own weaknesses and strengths. The spell can be used with charge to allow the pet better resistances.
Charge will also allow this elemental to cast matching-innate spells, at the cost of the owner's mana.
As a follower and not a pet, a Wizard can still own a pet of whatever type and have a conjured Elemental.
  • Read Magic - Level: 28 - Lag: 8 - Mana: 24
The Read Magic spell allows witches to observe the current affects on a target, whether they are innate, granted by equipment, or the result of a spell.

Archmage

The Archmage is one of two classes a Wizard may evolve into at level 30.

Archmagi are scholars of the highest caliber, who have refined the art of spellcasting into sheer masterpieces. Their level of control over mana is so fine they can ensure their spells are flawlessly cast, or even reverse the elemental damage the inflict. An Archmage's repertoire is one of detailed skill, from the echoing of spells to confining a spell into a sacrificial staff or wand. Their signature ability is the practice of combining spells to create an entirely new effect.


Skills

  • Surecasting - Level: 30 - Lag: ---
Surecasting is a skill that can be toggled. When active, it ensures that any spells cast by the user will never fail. There is a chance, dependent on the user's skill in the spell being cast, that the spell will cost dramatically more mana than it normally would. This is capable of draining the user completely of mana, which will result in the user being stunned for a short while. Nonetheless, the spell will be cast even if it leaves the user completely depleted.
  • Combomagic - Level: 45 - Lag: 12
Combomagic is a toggled skill. When active, if the two spells of the proper innates are cast consecutively on a single target, the second spell is replaced by a Tier 4 combospell.
The elemental composition and strength of the combospell depend on its components, whereas the mana cost, spell lag, and cooldown depend on the combospell itself.
Combomagic can be triggered by an ally's spells, spells from held items, or even a previous combospell. The main requirement is that the second component of the combospell is provided by a caster proficient in combomagic.
Tier 4 Spell Combos
(Moon OR Earth) + Fire Flare Star

The flare star spell opens a portal to a nearby star directly in front of the caster's opponent. Peerless heat and radiation pours from the portal, incinerating the enemy. Victims of the flare star may even burst into flames, their grossly incandescent bodies continued fuel for the inferno.

Flare Star is a Tier 4 offensive spell and can be charged to deliver 1.25x the damage. It deals dark and fire-type damage unless altered by combomagic.

On a lethal blow, Flare Star inflicts damage, equal to its overkill damage, to all remaining enemies in the room, every pulse for three pulses.

(Earth OR Wind) + Water Catastrophe

At the heart of the Catastrophe was a simple idea: they never wanted to go to war again. Wanted to rule it out. Make it so their enemies would never be able to threaten them ever again. The Catastrophe would stop the fighting cold, tear the earth to pieces from the inside. Then there was a breakthrough. It worked.

Catastrophe is a Tier 4 offensive spell and can be charged to deliver 1.25x the damage. It deals earth and cold-type damage unless altered by combomagic.

On a lethal blow, Catastrophe wracks the room: hp/mp/mv regen rates are cut 75% and movement costs are greatly increased, with duration dependent on overkill damage.

(Wind OR Wood) + Moon Southern Cross

The heavens themselves become the artillery of he who casts the southern cross. The unlucky victim is vivisected by searing beams of starlight called down to earth at the caster's command. But stellar energy is not purely destructive, and the same starlight that brings the target to his knees may breathe vigor into the caster.

Southern Cross is a Tier 4 offensive spell and can be charged to deliver 1.25x the damage. It deals wind, dark, and light-type damage unless altered by combomagic.

On a lethal blow, Southern Cross cancels all lag for the caster and reduces all cooldowns, proportional to the amount of overkill damage.

(Wood OR Fire) + Earth Ancient Power

Invoking ancient power calls upon prehistoric stone-like artifacts to burst from the earth. These stones, engraved with long-forgotten runes, are imbued with sentience that desires only destruction. A caster who fulfills the stones' deadly desires by laying waste to his enemies is granted power.

Ancient Power is a Tier 4 offensive spell and can be charged to deliver 1.25x the damage. It deals wood and earth-type damage unless altered by combomagic.

On a lethal blow, Ancient Power increases all stats of the caster to a degree dependent on the overkill damage and with duration dependent on the level of the victim.

(Fire OR Water) + Wind Black Wind

The black wind howls... one among you will shortly perish. Wheter it comes as a burning, punishing wind or a frigid, piercing gale, the black wind is a dreadful spell, prophesied to carry death to those who feel it. Only a fool would not flee in terror before someone wielding this terrible force.

Black Wind is a Tier 4 offensive spell and can be charged to deliver 1.25x the damage. It deals fire and wind-type damage unless altered by combomagic.

On a lethal blow, Black Wind terrifies any remaining enemies in the room, who may immediately attempt to flee.

(Water OR Moon) + Wood Grand Dream

They say this spell banishes its victim to the dream world, but those who survive never remember where they've been. We only know that sinking into the grand dream sends you somewhere for a very long time. Hair goes gray, the body rots or turns to stone, covered with moss or mold like something long abandoned in the forest.

Grand Dream is a Tier 4 offensive spell and can be charged to deliver 1.25x the damage. It deals cold and wood-type damage unless altered by combomagic.

On a lethal blow, Grand Dream fossilizes the victim. Sundry goods may be looted from a Grand Dream fossil, their number and quality based on the amount of overkill damage.

  • Trance - Level: 40 - Lag:---
Trance is a passive skill that activates empowers the user for defeating many enemies consecutively. This triggers when the second foe is defeated ~30 seconds after the first foe.
As long as Trance is active, the user gains +2 Magroll/defeated foe, and regenerates mana as if they were asleep.
The longer you are in a Trance
  • Echomagic - Level: 55 - Lag: ---
Echomagic is a toggled skill. When active, all offensive spells will hit a second time, several pulses after the original spell.
This increases the mana cost of the original spell by 50%. The power of the echoed spell increases with skill.
The echoed spell will target whoever the caster is currently fighting.
  • Staffify - Level: 70 - Lag: ---
An Archmage can create a magical staff by trapping their spells inside of a weapon. The level is based on the caster's level or the item's, whichever is lower. The weapon is consumed in the process, and has a single charge. The skill % in the spell you are trying to charge the staff with is a small factor in the creation process.

Unlike manashield, damage to the chrysalis does not drain MP, but the caster cannot fight from within the chrysalis, and taking any action will cause the chrysalis to immediately shatter open.
  • Megamagic - Level: 60 - Lag: 32 - Mana: SPECIAL
This is a non-elemental attack spell. The damage done by the spell is equal to the wizard's max mana. However, if a wizard is not at full mana, then HP is taken to make up for the difference between current and max mana.
  • Reverse Polarity - Level: 65 - Lag: 8 - Mana: 40

Tractor Beam has a chance to dispel the Float effect on its targets.
  • Headology - Level: 80 - Lag: 12 - Mana: 150
A particularly clever Witch can convince a sentient enemy that they are, in fact, a newt. I'm quite sure you'll see this is true as well since they will become a tiny, slimy newt worth 0 EXP.
This spell has no cooldown.

Elementalist

Elementalist is one of two classes a Wizard may evolve into at level 30.

Mana is raw power, and few understand this primal rule as well as the Elementalists. They are able to impose their will on this power so forcefully that they can turn their attacks back into usable mana, cast more with less, and even instinctively retaliate with spells. While their focus is more narrow than others, the results of their dedication to the elemental powers of mana can not be argued with.


Skills

  • Wildcasting - Level: 30 - Lag: 10
Wildcasting is a skill that can be toggled. When active, it allows the user to continue casting spells if they don't have enough mana, even ZERO. However, casting without mana can lead to some random but detrimental side effects.
Additionally, wildcasting cuts spell lag based on the caster's remaining mana. A manaless caster enjoys a 75% cut in lag, while a caster with more than half mana remaining sees a negligible lag cut.
  • Feedback - Level: 40 - Lag: 0 - Mana: 0
Feedback is a passive skill that is always active once practiced above 1%. Whenever the user casts a spell, the user gains mana according to the amount of damage dealt. This is not limited by the user's maximum mana, which will temporarily increase to accomodate the gain from feedback, if needed.
Feedback includes overkill damage as well as damage affecting multiple targets, as long as the damage occurs from a single spell cast.
Although feedback has a long cooldown, feedback will partially activate even while on cooldown, as long as the user deals damage exceeding that of the previous feedback activation.
High skill converts a greater percentage of damage into mana.
  • Power Surge - Level: 55 - Lag: --- - Mana: 0*
Power Surge is a skill that can be toggled. While active, all cast spells will enjoy a 50% power boost(via increasing the level of the spell cast) but suffer a 20% increased failure rate.
  • Counterspell - Level: 70 - Lag: 0 - Mana: 0*
Counterspell is a skill that can be toggled. When active, it allows the user to immediately counterattack any offensive spell with any offensive spell of their choice. The counterspell induces no lag but costs twice the MP of a regular spell.
Counterspells do not consume a Wizard's Charge. The probability of counterspell activating is based on the user's skill percentage in counterspell.
