Aspirin created a new topic ' Should we change to Mage?' in the forum. yesterday

Intro.

When we have wars such as Mistmarrow and Halcyona, we are usually fucked by red mages. We've realized necessity to change our class to mage, but we also know that melee and ranged attackers are much funner to play. Eventually, we just join the war without mages and we all are dead in 5 seconds again. I become too tired to say "WHAT THE FUCK??" whenever I get killed by magic skills. So...I figured out a solution to fight against mages with non-mage classes.

Key points

Magical Defense
Charge and Dodge Skills
Counter CC

Magic Defense

To fight against mages, we definitely need magic resistance. We can try to dps mages ignoring their AoE and magic skills with our magic defense. But how do we set up high magic defense?? Should we wear cloth armor? then our dps is going to be lower. Answer is combining obsidian armors which have their own equipt effects so that we can keep our physical damge with high magic defense. I've calculated all combination of armors and got this result.

Core armors are:

Body - Obsidian Jerkins with Magic defense effect
Legs - Obsidian Breeches with M.D. effect

*Leather armor with M.D. equipt effect has more M.D. than cloth armor.

Rest armor parts such as Head, Hands, Feet depends on your preference. You can wear cloth for M.D. and plate for more health. However, cloth doesn't have any good equipt effects for physical damage, and plate gives few more health without M.D.
Therefore I recommend:

Head - Obsidian cap
Feet - Obsidian sabatons with M.D. effect


You can wear whatever you want for hands, Waist, and Wrists. But you gotta know these:

Cloth has Magic defense but no advantages of physical damage
Leather has both kinds of defenses
Plate doesn't have magic defense. It has more Stamina(health) but only 60 health difference per part as long as you don't wear plate Cuirasses.

*You can also wear GHA plate Hands, Waist, and Wrists so that you can get 3 set equipt effect(Increases physical defense +314, Magic defense +226)

**** I strongly recommend you to equipt 'Obsidian Shield' with M.D. effect. Duel wielding is not that good. Even though you equipt 2 swords, only right handed weapon is applied to your dps. left handed weapon gives you only additional effect such as stamina, agility, strenght. Get a shield with M.D.. It will makes you be alive longer and do more dps to mages. You don't have enough Gold to get the shield with M.D.?? Go and get a shield without M.D.. It will makes you survive from melee and ranged attackers.

Charge and Dodge Skills

Mage usually has lots of magic skills with long range. We always need to care of the green circles, it is hard to focus on it in crowded war. But We should avoid this shit not to die on the way to the mage. Thus, you need some skills to charge or dodge.

Following list is about all charge and dodge skills in AA:

Battlerage: Charge, Tiger Strike, Behind Enemy Lines
Auramancy: Teleportation, Mirror Warp
Shadowplay: Overwhelm, Drop Back, Shadow Step

These skills will help you to dodge magic skills and to get closer to them.

Counter CC

We can stop mages from casting or we can be immunized from their CC. Actually it is important to distub casting mages so that they cannot attack us.

Stun:
Every skills with stunning can stop casting

Silence and Fear:

Defense: Bull Rush, Imprison
Occultism: Stillness
Witchcraft: Purge, Insidious Whisper, Banshee Wail
Archery: Boneyard
Shadowplay: Shadow Smite

*Imprison and Boneyard can block mage's sight, but shold be used carefully not to block greens.

Push or pull casting mage:

Battlerage: Lasso
Defense: Fortress
Occultism: Telekinesis, Mana Force
Witchcraft: Dahuta's Breath
Auramancy: Vicious Implosion

Slow casting:

Occultism: Summon Wraith
Songcraft: Dissonance

Immunization:

Battlerage: Bonebreaker, Terrifying Roar, Frenzy
Defense: Redoubt, Invincibility
Occultism: *Stillness
Witchcraft: Purge, *Courageous Action
Auramancy: *Shrug it off, Liberation, Protective Wings
Archery: *Intensity
Shadowplay: Freerunner

* Fear and Hell Spear are always in AoE combo. Reds always come into us to fear and others cast safely. being immunized from fear and impale is really good to escape when the shit happens.

Outro.

You know, we play this game to ENJOY and HAVE FUN, rgith??
As a melee user, I didn't want to give up my physical damage for only one reason to fight against mages. Hope you guys get some tips from this and be USEFUL dps in raid. Thank you. B) B)

P.S. Sorry about what you would feel any inconvenience from my bad grammar. Do not hesitate if you have any questions, or there are some grammatical errors
