Looking for some PVM advice.

Postby TrickyBuilder » 2021-01-01 16:06 (Friday)

I have been playing RO while watching TV lately and found out that I'm enjoying that combo. I went through several classes and builds and ended up wanting to play a wizzie or sage. Just brings back my nicest RO-related memories.

I was wondering what's a more fun to PvM build for someone (that doesn't rely on alts or parties). A 'bolter' wizzie/sage that deals high damage to single targets or a wizzie that does some nice AoE damage, SG+JT/LoV, you know the drill. Levelling speed not a priority, just looking for classic time.

I've played all this before, but it's been so long that I just can't seem to make up my mind about it.

It's gonna be slow once you reach 90+ for either option you listed without some kind of support. Mage classes are not good at soloing.

At lower level solo you are limited to SW/FW + bolts for killing Clocks, Alarms, etc. You don't have the DEX to cast strong AoE fast enough yet.

I think the fun options are in smaller parties:

With AoE Wizard you can go for the classic duo with priest: priest tanks mob and cast suffragium on wizard. You can go basically anywhere where magic is good. Common spots: magma dungeon, baylan, niff.

For single bolt, an auto bolter sage is good but you need at least a Soul Linker alt. Any other buffs for ASPD really helps too (Advanced Adrenaline, AGI+). You can kill anolians, goats, seals, etc. This can work solo.

Thanks. I don't think dual clienting is my jam and as much as I want to rebirth a wizzie (always wanted to, first class I ever played), I'm probably better off doing something else. Sage bolter seems doable on paper, but I have distinct memories not being able to outrun most high level mobs with it.

I am probably better off doing something else.

I usually kill greatest generals until j50, just stand 10 cells away from them and cold bolt to death, safe and sound
