Cabal Wizard Guide[By Windcutter]

Wizard // Hometown: Desert Scream
The wizard is your AoE, spellcasting, ranged class. Wizards wield dual orbs as power sources for their magic and wear the martial set for higher avoid, but lack defense as compensation. Wizards are excellent fighters due to their long range AoE attacks that still deal high amounts of damage. Wizards also have the ability to freeze monsters from a range so that they cannot even reach you, making your lack of defense not even a factor to worry about. Since wizards are a 1 stat class like warriors and mainly use just magic skills, wizards are a class suitable for beginners as well.

+ Best long range AoE
+ Capable of freezing opponents from far away, preventing you from harm
+ Decent avoid rate
+ Powerful in PvP due to freezing and range

- Low defense

This is wizard's growth chart

Magic skills:

Get Magic Arrow, Burning Hand and Freeze to lv9. This is to allow faster skill training as what affects skill level is how frequent u cast your skills. You may choose other novice skills(arrows) but i personally prefer Burning Hand and Freeze because they have very low cooldown at lv9(burning hand 1.1s, freeze 1s) and very easy to combo. Reason for leaving these skills at lv9 = lowest cooldown time. Also, get Regeneration and that's it for Novice.

Reaching apprentice allows you to learn the blasts. Don't bother. This is because you will delete them anyway. However, get Dig Bomb to lv9 because it's limit 2(AOE) and knocks down the enemy. Good for saving your arse when you get whooped by many mobs. For other apprentice skills like Icicle Shower, don't even look at them.

Now the regular rank. What skills can you learn lemme see.. Oh the lances. Just learn 2 of the lances, Terra Lance and Fire Lance. They have higher DPS compared to the other lances at lv20. Don't even bother touching Hydro Disk or Wind Cutter. However, if you got the alz and want to train faster, you may get it. And i was jw if Weaken is under regular. If it is, learn and max it. You'll surely need this one.

This is when your cannons come. But firstly, get Hardness and max it asap. Lightning Strike is useless as it's too slow to be of any use. Acid Trap is good at lower levels, but start to get useless at the higher levels. It's too low damage at higher levels and for it to be useful, you have to level acid trap to 20 for the max poison effect. And it'll cost you a bomb to delete it. So, simply, don't learn it. Get Stone Cannon, Fire Cannon, Lightning Cannon, maybe Aqua Cannon as well. Stone, fire and aqua are usually used for PVP while lightning is more for PVE til your gm comes.

Only 4 skills: Vacuum, Chain Explosion, Energy Field and Sharpness. and what's the point of sharpness? for a wizard to punch? so don't bother unless you wanna buff your mates and the points to spare. If you got the alz and want to train fast, learn all the other 3 as these skills are good at the low levels. Energy Field is a MUST HAVE because it has a nice cast time and stuns. However, i do not recommend Vacuum cos it's too slow, in fact **** slow. I deleted it after killing a wriggleleaf. Also, for CE, it's good for certain unstunnable bosses(those bosses in the patren quest) and just get it to 9 in my opinion.

Get Blink and Force Increase at master. Blink is awesome when you cast it with Dash. Hailstorm is good for PVE purposes and i got it to lv20 and PVE became easier. nice damage, reasonable cooldown and knock downs the enemy. Get the resist knockback buff later in the game cos for now, we can't stack 2 spirit buffs and so the force increase buff will be cancelled if you cast the resist buff.

Get Arctic Field. It's one of our ultimate PVE skills and works great. And for High Regeneration get it if you got the alz. Good for PVP as max high regen gives 70hp per 2 seconds, quite a huge lot of hp regenerated. However, please note that high regen has a dumb duration of 60s (after lv80 rank up quest) and a GREAT cooldown of 180s. oh well.

of course our ultimate skill of all. EXTREME DUAL CANNON. GET IT TO AT LEAST LV9 ASAP! With a stun rate of 75% for 5 seconds, nice damage and limit 3, it makes a great PVE & PVP skill. also learn spirit intension, our very first party exclusive skill. more of a pvp based buff skill, but just get it since we will have enough points for everything. once we're in a party, all our party skills can be casted regardless of the presence of any nearby party mates.

With completer incoming, Space Collapse is out. seriously lol@SC.
Reason: although it's limit 4, it isn't like AF, and hits the monsters all around you. AF is limit 4 around us, but SC is limit 4 around the monster. in simple words, SC may not always hit the monsters behind you if the monster you casted yr SC on is in front of you.
the only great thing about SC is the 80% stun..<3 other than that, it sarks.
Anyway, it still makes a good PVE skill. at least level 12 i would say. if you're sooo into PVP then get it to level 20 after transcender is out. since comp lv20 will be deadly as a finisher in PVP.
btw also get Mass Restore.

This one's pretty obvious. max both Raise Spirit and Art of Force Control.
