Disclaimer: I don't pretend to be an expert in the mage class,   
but I want to help beginning Mage Forest Walkers as far as I can,   
so feel free to approve or object to my recommendations.     
The various builds described here are made up only on a theoretical basis,     
and therefore have not yet been thoroughly tested.     
This is because in PF, and actually in any MMORPG,    
high damage types are more popular than support types,     
and most people think that supporting is only reserved for the Priest class.     
So, YOU CALL ME NOOB, YOU'RE NOOB TOO. End of story. 




BishopLuc's Mage Guide 


Mages are the masters of the elements.      
A blazing fire or crackling ice is a sign that a Mage is nearby.      
They have low physical defense, but makes up for it with their high-damage spells.     
Some of them can inflict negative effects.     
Mages can either unleash their full force on a single opponent or destroy a group of enemies.     
For these reasons, the Mage is a great asset to any party.

Recommended Pets

NOTE: The general rule of thumb for selecting pets   
is to have at least Genius Star 1 for beginners,  
and at least Supreme Star 1 for advanced players.   
For more information about pet upgrading, please proceed to this link:

http://forum.playomg.com/default.aspx?g=posts&t=1928
ATK Type 
For an ATK Pet, suitable choices are Warrior type pets such as
Aquatic Dragon King, Wolfman, Bruce Lee, Penguin Baby, and Warg (all of them cash pets),
or other pets with special skills such as Dolphin/Fat Duck/Mischief Maiden (Heal),
Android 18 (Iron Cannon), Rebel Angel (MP Burn), and tank types such as Husky (Ice Shield).
For beginners, well, just stick to Canaan Piglet or to other pets derived from soul orbs
required to complete some quests, such as Royal Frog or Rascal Bear.
By Level 20, you can either keep them or buy an Android 15 off other players.
A Genius Star 1 (GS1) pet or better is recommended, unless you can still wait until you can acquire your main pets.
In that case, stick to at least Smart ranked pets.
Pet cultivation for ATK Pets will depend on the class type they belong to.
For each class, cultivate the pets as follows for maximum damage:

With 100 CP:


Warrior Type = 40 STR, 25 DEX
Ranger Type = 36 STR, 30 DEX
Mage/Priest Type = 40 INT, 25 SPR
Balanced Type = 33 STR/INT, 33 DEX/SPR, depending on the class type.

With 300 CP:

Warrior Type = 74 STR, 34 DEX
Ranger Type = 65 STR, 50 DEX
Mage Type = 71 INT, 40 SPR
Priest Type = 56 INT, 60 SPR
Balanced Type = 58 STR/INT, 58 DEX/SPR, depending on the class type.


Note that I did not recommend pure stat builds. It is because for pet cultivation,
higher pet cultivation stats require more cultivation points to raise.
If I remember it right, it goes like this:

1-20 = 1 CP
21-30 = 2 CP
31-40 = 3 CP
41-50 = 4 CP
51-60 = 5 CP
61-70 = 6 CP
71-80 = 7 CP
81-90 = 8 CP 91-93 = 9 CP


In pet cultivation, a pure stat build will not provide better results than hybrid builds,
unlike character stats in which it is stated otherwise.
To prove my point, let us experiment a Mage Type Pet with 0 stats and 300 CP.

Pure INT = 81 * 2.5 + 2 * 1.2 = 204.9 MATK
71 INT / 40 SPR = 71 * 2.5 + 40 * 1.2 = 225.5 MATK

As you can see, 71int/40spr increases more MATK than a Pure INT can.
This goes the same way for any class type pets, but with different primary and secondary stats.
Now, you go figure.

DEF Type
For a DEF Pet, Red Chameleon has the best HP among all pets, 
while Steel Dragon has the best HP among non-cash pets. 
Other DEF Pets include any "Guard Warrior" Pets, i.e., 
those who have high HP and CON growth rates. 
When choosing a DEF Pet, look only for its class type, HP and CON growths. 
Choose only WARRIOR TYPE Pets with high HP and CON growths.

There was a dispute in another forum topic as to which between RC and MM has higher HP. 
On first glance, MM would own RC since:


Mischief Maiden = 602 HP, 608 CON, 54 HP per HP growth point, 8 HP per CON growth point   
Red Chameleon = 583 HP, 593 CON, 75 HP per HP growth point, 15 HP per CON growth point 

But if you look more closely, RC still has higher HP since MM is a MAGE TYPE pet, 
which has the lowest HP growth per HP and CON point.
RC on the other hand, is a WARRIOR TYPE pet, which has the highest HP growth per HP and CON point.

For beginners, as stated above, stick to Canaan Piglet or the pets derived from quests
such as Royal Frog until around level 15, where you can get a Plain Pig with a rank of 
Smart or better, preferably GS1 up. You would want to keep your Plain Pig until you can get 
Steel Dragon or any other better pet, or get a GS1 Shrimp or better from the 
Tarwool Swamp Pet Type Instance. My personal experience: got an SS1 from there.

Pet cultivation for DEF Pets consists of a pure CON build, since only CON affects HP growth for all pet types.

POSS Type


For a POSSESSION pet, choose one which has the same class type as yours, in this case, MAGE. 
Yes, pets in PF have class types which are so determined since they grow in the same rate 
as one of the four job classes in PF. For example, MAGE TYPE PETS grow stats in the same way Mages do. 
Choose a POSS Pet with high INT and SPR since magical damage is derived from these two stats.


1 INT = 2.5 MATK, 1.0 SA   
1 SPR = 1.2 MATK, 0.5 SA   
Critical Chance Rate = (Spell Assault / 100)%  
Critical Damage Rate = (150+ (Total Spell Assault Intensity) / 100)%

The top five choices for POSS Pets for Mages include:


Mischief Maiden = 562 INT, 471 SPR = 1970 MATK 
Fat Duck = 502 INT, 541 SPR = 1904 MATK  
Night Devil / Purple Chameleon = 547 INT, 426 SPR = 1878 MATK  
Butterfly = 509 INT, 426 SPR = 1783 MATK  
Rotten Corpse Bug = 486 INT, 426 SPR = 1726 MATK 

As you can see, MM is now the best POSS Pet for Mages, 
but the RCB is still the best non-cash Mage POSS Pet.

Alternative pets for beginners include: 

Frog and Crab for level 0 beginning players
Black-Winged Angel for level 0 advanced players
Cerberus for level 20 (if RCB is not yet available)

Pet cultivation for Mage Possession Pets is as stated earlier above:

40int/25spr with 100cp    
71int/40spr with 300cp   
80int/50spr with 400cp

It's not all about knowledge, but it helps.

2 INT 2 SPR is an acceptable build for Left Ace Mage. This build supports the Defensive Mage Theme. It gives you less damage but for more resistance. But the point is, Frozen doesn't damage as much as Fire Ambush, anyway. You only need enough damage so that the battle won't drag on for too long, but at the same time more defense and resistance boosts the effect of Polymeric Ice Shield even further.



As you can see, you will only trade 257 Damage for 337 Resistance, which is not really that bad. With Polymeric Ice Shield on, a 40k Fire Ambush will only become as low as 16k! Now that's scary!

The Left Ace Mage PvP tactic will be as follows:

If Frozen is not yet maxed, cast Polymeric Ice Shield first.
Otherwise, cast Frozen FIRST!
Frozen's CD is 22 seconds, while PIS's CD is 40 seconds. That means you can Freeze enemies at least once for the whole duration of PIS.
Remember to CAST ICE SHIELD ON YOURSELF AS SOON AS IT COOLS DOWN! And I mean AS SOON AS!
You forget this, you're screwed!
If your opponent has buffs such as WBS or Sacred Seal (not sure about Untraceable yet), CAST CALMNESS ON HIM AS SOON AS HE HAS BUFFED HIMSELF!

You can use the following equipment:

Higher DMG: ATK Rod + ATK Set
Balanced DMG and Resistance: ATK Rod + ATK Set with Prayer or Guardian Stones or DEF Set with GS or Cloud Gems.
HIgher Resistance: ATK Rod with Prayer Stones + DEF Set with Guardian Stones.

I'll refer you to this post for additional information on POSS pets.

http://forum.playomg.com/default.aspx?g=posts&m=71967

Pure ATK Pets can be any Mars Warrior Type Pet,i.e., those which have high ATK rates. Penguin Baby, ADK, and Wolfman have insane ATK rates and are the best suited for pure ATK Pets for any class.
If you want a tank ATK pet, Husky can be a good option due to its level 40 skill, Ice Shield.
Some special skill ATK pets include Fat Duck, Dolphin, or Kitsune (for their heal); Android 18 (for its Iron Cannon which ignores DEF); and Rebel Angel (for its MP burn and cuteness XD). Note that I only recommended catchables with skills which can be more useful since they are easily overshadowed by the newest cash pets in terms of pure ATK power.

DEF Pets can be any Guard Warrior Type Pets, i.e., those which have high HP and CON growths. Red Chameleon is still the best DEF pet at 51k HP by level 100 and PoD 4. The next best ones are Husky, Gingerbread Man, and Sunflower. Penguin Baby and ADK may have better stats than any of them, but these are better suited as ATK pets since they are Mars Warrior Type Pets.

POSS Pets can be either a Mage Type or a Priest Type Pet. Among the cash pets, the best one would be the Night Devil. Although Fat Duck yields better damage, it is better suited as an ATK pet due to its healing ability.
The best catchable Mage POSS pet is the Rotten Corpse Bug, followed by Black Winged Angel, Wisp, and Cerberus.
Dolphin/FD can also be used in rotation with any suitable Mage Type Pet as ATK and POSS, respectively.

INT adds 1 M.Crit per point, and SPR adds 0.5 M.Crit per point. Meaning, if you want more criticals as a Mage, INT>SPR.

I am telling you this: Whichever pet you choose is solely your own decision.
I am only recommending some pets only for their skills which can help you survive.
Well, if you can't afford cash pets, use A18 or any good pet if you please.
A18 may be better suited for attacker types, e.g., Fire Mage.

Like I said, Whatever pet you choose is solely your own decision.

4int is definitely the best build for the attack type Mage for any element. It completely ignores defense for maximum offense.

3int/1spr provides less damage for more resistance. Definitely not the best if you want PURE damage. This calls for a hybrid offense/defense mage.

2int/2spr offers the best balance for damage and resistance. With this build you can safely use an ATK Set with Prayer or Guardian Stones or even Cloud Gems without worrying about being damaged too much. This is only recommended for Ace Mages, though, since they have PIS which has greater effect when the Mage has higher defense and resistance.

I want to say this over and over again: I don't believe in something such as the best build for any class.
Because if there IS the best build for any class, then there isn't any challenge in experimenting other builds at all.
So everyone will put 4int just because they believe it's the best build.

The problem with the so-called "best builds" is of course you will spend too much to increase your power even more.
I am only recommending alternative builds for beginning characters (and pros as well) who would prefer saving up first until such time they can afford to buy the best equipment.

In due time, I will be able to post an in-depth explanation of all the builds I have stated in the guide. These are:

Full INT - Offense Theme
INT/SPR - Defense Theme
INT/DEX - Quick Cast Theme

Thank you.

By the way, I have just updated the guide by adding alternative Ace builds, in case anyone of you would like to wait until Reborn to acquire the ultimate Ace spells. Otherwise, just follow the basic Ace builds instead.

Reborn is the upcoming new version of Pet Forest, where more talent points (TP) can be distributed. From 33 TP in this current version, it will be increased to 50 TP when the Reborn patch is implemented.

I am trying to make the Reborn builds as fast as I can, but as I don't have my flash drive anymore, it would be more difficult for me to update the guide, and therefore it will take me much time to do so.

In the meantime, please be patient. Thank you once again.

Well, here we are.

Mage Guide successfully updated to version 1.3.

The next upgrade will include In-Depth explanations to all possible Mage Builds with recommended equipment for each one.

I am planning to enable toggle between showing and hiding the outline in my guide intro so that the guide can be shortened enough to be readable.

If anyone knows how to toggle show/hide, please let me know.

Sad to say, my friends, I have an uncommon playing style focused on excelling in PvM and tactical PvP rather than just simple PvP, so there's nothing I can say about PvP actually. Call me weak or noob or anything if you like, but IMHO, PvP sucks if winning is based SOLELY by who gets to damage the HIGHEST, FIRST. Sure, there are debuffs, but they're kind of useless since PvP stylists can 1-hit KO you very easily. No room for strategy, no room for the fine art known as duel tactics.

By the way MMOs are designed today, PvP does not hold tactical prowess in regard since overpowered player characters can kill many opponents IN ONE SHOT. In my opinion, PvP has just become the battle of the brutes wherein finesse CAN be considered as a crime.

So, for more information on the PvP Mage, check rbosiris's PvP Mage Guide, found here:

Well, I'm sorry to tell you that I have temporarily abandoned my simulator since I am having trouble with a lot of things, such as:

1. Simulating Perfect Equipments and Quest Reward Equipments (e.g. Pirate King and Ancestor Equipments) so that the user will only have to pick a set of his choice. For example, if the user chooses an ATK WPN + DEF Set set-up, the simulated stats are presented automatically either at Random or by Average Values.
Unfortunately, I don't have enough information about how Perfect Equipments grow as their levels increase, especially for DEF and HP Sets since most people would probably use ATK Sets. The previous version of the simulator requires that the user inputs the given stats of his equipment. Better option for exact simulations, but quite tedious if you only want to see the difference between equipment sets.

2. Adding effects from Innate Skills and Talent Builds.

3. Presenting the Talent Simulator in a dynamic but presentable way. When I say dynamic, the skill icons change with the change of job class. So far, I am having serious trouble on that one.

4. At lastly, my flash drive was lost. So it would take a long time before I could complete my simulator, since I'm considering taking a break at my father's town after the school year.

It's not all about knowledge, but it helps.

The 275 fire damage in the skill description is the base damage. Actual damage is based on the element harm stat, in this case, Fire Harm.

The spell damage calculation, ignoring level gap, is as follows:

Spell Damage = [(Element Harm) * (Element Spell Base Damage) / 100 ] - Enemy's Spell Resistance
Critical Spell Damage = Spell Damage * (1.5 + Spell Assault Intensity / 10000)

So, assuming you have 2000 Fire Harm and your opponent has 1000 Fire Resistance, Fireball at 275 base damage will have:

2000 * 275 / 100 - 1000 = 4,500 damage

With the same information above, the following single-target spells will deal the following damages:

Level 4 Burn = 2000 * 200 / 100 - 1000 = 3,000
Level 4 Burn + Reduced Fire Resistance = 2000 * 200 / 100 - (1000 - 100) = 3,100
Level 6 Pyroburst = 2000 * 370 / 100 - 1000 = 6,400
Level 4 Fire Ambush = 2000 * 510 / 100 - 1000 = 9,200

If you have Ice Harm and Ice Resistance instead of Fire, these single-target spells deal the following damages:

Level 4 Hail = 2000 * 195 / 100 - 1000 = 2,900
Level 4 Hail + Reduced Ice Resistance = 2000 * 195 / 210 - (1000 - 140) = 3,040
Level 4 Frozen = 2000 * 275 / 100 - 1000 = 4,500

If you're a Fire Master and your opponent is an Ace Master, the damages you deal against each other are as follows:
(for explanations, see my first post; assume both mages have 2000 base element harm and 1000 base resistance)

Fire Master:

2000 base fire harm
1000 base ice resistance
Lv6 Flame Power (+50 fire harm)
Lv5 Fortified Flame (+6% fire harm)
Lv5 Mental Concentration (+17% Spell Critical Damage)
Total Fire Harm = (2000 + 50) * 1.06 = 2173
Critical Modifier(excluding equipments) = 1.5 + 0.17 = 1.67

Ace Master:

2000 base ice harm
1000 base fire resistance
Level 6 Chilling Strength (+45 ice harm)
Level 6 Polymeric Ice Shield (-60% damage taken)
Total Ice Harm = 2000 + 45 = 2045
Critical Modifier = 1.5
PIS Damage Modifier = 0.4

Fire Ambush to Ace Master = 2173 * 510 / 100 - 1000 = 10,082
Critical Damage = 10082 * 1.67 = 16,837
Fire Ambush to Ace Master with PIS = 10,082 * 0.4 = 4,032
Critical Damage = 4032 * 1.67 = 6,734
Frozen to Fire Master = 2045 * 275 / 100 - 1000 = 4,623
Critical Damage = 4623 * 1.5 = 6,935

Hope that helped.
