Already Wizard C3 > Linker C1, then...

Post by Motnahp » August 21st, 2016, 8:42 am

Hi all, currently Linker C1 (Job 11), I'm indeed quite satisfied by the performance of jointly penalty(JP) + hangman's knot(HK) + magic missile(MM). Being a fan of no-element magic, It is actually a bit sad to see all the higher DPS classes are related to dark magic (sorcerer, necro, warlock & featherfoot). That's why I created this thread. Hoping to receive some feedbacks from you. Some background info of mine:

3 INT : 1 CON

What I often do in game (What I wanna do with the build):
With a full-time employment, what I can do off-duty is to auto-search for parties in dungeons (typically Merc Missions) on weekdays. And quests on weekends. I'm Lv.111, but still working on Lv.90 maps. Having no desire on top equipment / PVP, I'm more than happy if I'm not a burden to my team and can solo the quests. What troubles me is that my build may become so poor that I will stuck after R5. This is my first character so I have no experience in that high level. I only hope that the chosen build can fulfill this little dream.

Some possible options I can think of.

Option 1 - Wizard C3 > Linker C1 > Thau C3 > Future DPS Class?
This build aims at improving the performance of MM. JP+HK+MM combo is very good at dealing group of monsters of similar HP. Also, I guess this build is good at team playing / dungeon?

The major drawback is the lack of DPS skills and those against single targets. I have already had some hardtime facing elite monsters in Royal Mausoleum. JP+HK+MM is good, but when the linked monsters are having a significantly lower HP than the elite one, this combo is not effective against the elite. And I have no other skills against the elite until the end of MM cool down. (I invest no energy bolt)

Worry: Will I face a hard time leveling up / got stuck at certain levels?

Option 2 - Wizard C3 > Linker C1 > Psycho C3 > ?
Concerning the above drawback, I wonder if introduction of Psycho can improve the DPS, if Psychic Pressure (PP) can fill the cool time of MM. I have watched some Wiz C3+Psycho C3 videos on youtube and I found that the damage of PP is not bad for a R6 class. I'm not sure if that's sufficient for R7.

Worry: How's the performance of JP+HK +PP? Would it be useless during boss fighting as I have to run away from boss' AOE often?
I typed too much! Hoping to hear anything from you, advise on the above options, other alternatives, Anything is great. Thanks so much :!:

I'm going to recommend Chronomancer C3 instead. Since you mostly partying with people, I believe being support mage would be most useful.

In rank 8, I recommend Enchanter with Lightning enchant. Add with Quicken lvl 15, Blessing, and Sacrament...yeah.

Hi Motnahp,

as you said all the good single target dps classes have elemental damage. So you might find yourself struggling when soloing quest bosses. Psychic Pressure is good, but it's mainly a multi target skill.
Since you want to add more damage sources I'd suggest you take Rune Caster at rank 6 with Rune of Destruction, Rune of Giant and Rune of Justice.

Possible paths might be:
- Psycho c1 -> Rune Caster c1 -> Linker c2
New damage skills and better links later.
- Linker c2 -> Rune Caster c1 -> Linker c3
Extra burst damage through Rune Caster, way better links.
- Thauma c1 -> Rune Caster c1 -> Linker c2
Little buffs through Thauma, extra damage and better links.

Anyways I'd definitely suggest you take 1 or 2 more ranks into Linker because there'll be a lot to link later in the game. All of the builds can either go Sage or Enchanter at r8.
