WoE/PvE DD Wizard build

Postby sekai » 2020-02-05 08:44 (Wednesday)

Hello, I was wondering if I could build a Wizard meant to do damage in WoE, is there any viable way to not get stunned as much besides Stalactic Golem? Also want a high DEX and some AGI for the delay, but at the same time I want to know if I will need perma status recovery from a priest to do anything.

My other option is re-rebirth (lvl 84 atm) and go for a 80-100 vit build(80-100% stun resist) that I won't enjoy as much in PvE. Any ideas? (maybe hitting 105 INT would be ok following this build path)

My favourite build in a world without dancers would be 99 DEX 99 INT 25 AGI or VIT but I think I will be completely useless in WOE playing a glass cannon wizard and no guild will want me.

Also, anyone knows in which episode does stat food come in?

Thank you.

I suggest 99 int, 99 dex, 25 vit and stalactic golem card. Constantly remind your priest to spam status recovery on you.

No matter how you build it, I think hwiz is weak in WoE mainly because of land protector, scream and slim potion pitcher. I think they become balanced with stun immune gear available in much later episodes.

I know this thread is old, but just as a reference for future High Wizards:

As long as stun reduction equipment is not ingame yet, High Wizard are of course highly vulnerable to Scream Dancers and other Stun effects. It is debatable if 99 Int and 99 Dex HWs make any sense in WoE these days, especially when moving guild fights with Land Protectors below each guild are more relevant than stationary precasts. Still, when your Prof manages to counter-LP the enemy guild, it's nice to have a HW being able to hit the enemies with a high damage SG. If you watch WoE videos from OriginsRO, you rarely see too many SGs flying around. Of course not, if all your Wizards are perma-stunned.
In terms of WoE, it actually is pretty smart to play a Full Support High Wizard, which doesn't focus on damage output but rather on supporting your guild with:
- Fire Pillar trapping
- LoV hitlocking
- Quagmiring
- Ganbanteining the enemy LP + Safety Walling enemy key characters
- etc.

You'd go for a build with 97 total Vit, 99 Base Dex, rest into Int and possibly Str for weight limit. Just a quick build I made in rocalc:

With Combat Knife, 2x Alligator, Noxious, Thara, 38 Def and Energy Coat and close to 9k HP you become very tanky and - most importantly - stun immune.
The problem with this build, of course, is that it takes ages to level it. You basically need to leech it, which is either very expensive or very time consuming. Ideally, you create such a HW with the support of your WoE active guild, which includes it in leveling parties despite lack of use (well, you could technically be a tapper with LoV 1, which you would skill anyway).
Anyway, from experience (I played FS High Wizard on other servers), I can say that during WoE you will have fun and can make a serious difference. It depends on what you want to focus on really, as getting there is just a pain in the ****.

EDIT:

For reference, I found this person on YouTube playing FS HW:

You can see how he spams Ganbantein on the enemy LP to open a whole for the Creators to rapid fire AD into.
