Grand Fantasia Wizards Guide by zherdy29
Note: This guide is made based on my own experience playing as a wiz. I only managed to reach lvl 43 (IGN: Eyr) during CBT coz I tried the other classes.
Note: This guide was made after CBT so I don?t have access on the item and exact skill names ^^. Bad Memory ^^. Didn?t have anything to do so I made this guide.
Note: I?ll try to update whenever I can.
What is a Wizard?
If u live in a cave and this is your first time playing an MMO, then ill explain briefly.
Wizards are the spell casters in almost all MMOs in the case of Grand Fantasia it is still the same. They deal heavy damage using different spells with different elements, able to stun, slow and add negative buffs to their enemies. They also have party buffs that increases elemental resistances and gives a passive skill depending on the element involved.
A. Choosing a Sprite?
U can choose between a staff crafting sprite or a mage apparel crafting sprite.
Well u need weapons to maximize your damage dealing potential. The instrument to summon this sprite is quite rare but u can get it if you have high reputation from the sprite fountains.
As a mage/ wizard your aim is to kill the mob b4 it touches you ergo you don?t need armors that much EXCEPT for the bonuses. The first legendary set of the mage/wiz class tree is awesome. I used it until I was 42 ^^. Ill explain later. Mage apparel sprites are easy to loot from mobs.
In Conclusion ? CHOOSE a staff crafting sprite at the beginning. Just wait to loot a mage apparel sprite or buy one.
The first legendary set gives Magical Shackles a +8 sec duration bonus w/c pretty much lets u solo and kill any world boss. U cant solo dungeon bosses bcoz u cant shackle them.
Based on my experience the 2nd legendary set isn?t much of a necessity coz the mats for the hat and suit are hard 2 come by and they don?t give too much benefit except for the evasion, that is if u plan on letting monsters get near you.
I wasn?t able to create the 3rd legendary set coz mats are really rare and I rarely do dungeons so I was stuck at my 1st set Y_Y.
In the dungeons, the second set rocks. Since youre in a party, the shackles is completely useless and the extra stats/def on the higher set is needed to keep up. Some of the bosses have AoE (area of effect) spells and youll need the def/m-res to live through them if you happen to get too close. mostly just stay max range of your spells and you wont get hit. theres always the chance to pull aggro from the tanks as well, so the def comes into play then. the added INT increases your spells damage and helps cut the time of those long boss battles.

The lvl 18 and lvl 20 legendary staff are ok to get at the beginning?. You can choose either. d lvl 18 is better for mana efficiency coz it has a chance to recover your mana

Lvl 40 legendary staff TOTALLY awesome? it gives u a 8% chance to activate its skill w/c increases casting speed by around 50% and critical by 50% for around 10secs (not sure on the duration but that?s pretty much close)

i. Regular monster combo ? Fire/ Lightining/ Ice Bolt ?- Scorching Strike/ Flash freeze/Icy Grip or vice versa. You must kill a mob in 2 of these spells which ever combo u like. If one of the instant cast spells is in CD mode use the other they pretty much deal the same damage. Ice bolt has lowest mana cost and cooldown/cast time so use it in combo with the instant casts if u can kill mobs in 2 hits if not use lightning or fire.
