3 Top Mage Builds (Nukers)
This is a Mage (Nuker) build, for the top 3 most effective ones’ ingame.
First off I am going based on the skills for the builds and not the weapon, but to generalize, I would suggest Sword + shield to be the main weapon and always have a spear on the side , for those times you know you’ll never get hit. Garment till 50+ then switch to armor or 40+ if you struggle. Hybrid go 2:1 Int Str and use protector.
Before the Force skills, we need the basics,
In Bichoen, you need to only get from as little as lvl 5 mastery to as much as lvl 20 in this skill tree. Below is what I suggest you get if you go as far as lvl20. On average just get lvl 10 Bichoen mastery, but if you feel your lacking, go the full amount.
Required Skillpoints: 465
Mastery Sum: 20/300
Required Skill Experience: 186000
Experience / Skill XP: 7.56172043011**
You can see the extra skills for going max 20, are the knockdown combo, plus getting the extra shield passive is good. I only suggest getting level one in any of these skills, since they only support your build till your magic skills takeover at later levels.
Now for the 3 types of skill builds you could go:
There are only 3 Force skill trees with an effective offense and defense for mages, though some get the Healing series, I wouldn’t suggest it unless you farm more on the side.
All mage builds need light so the only difference really is the nuke. With Fire/light you have Fire as your main nukes, with a supplement of Light to assist you.
Required Skillpoints: 41220
Mastery Sum: 60/300
Required Skill Experience: 16488000
Experience / Skill XP: 17.4711618147**
Required Skillpoints: 2585
Mastery Sum: 30/300
Required Skill Experience: 1034000
Experience / Skill XP: 278.592375242**
In this build you have fire nukes and the fire force as your main attacks. Then a compliment of level 1 shock lion and level 1 thunder bolt as finishers or quickes. I know level 30 in light might seem low, but less support in the light skill tree is made up with the power from your fire nukes and the sp farmed is much less then it could be.I suggest upping the light skill tree later on or farm more in the beginning, but lvl 30 should be satisfactory.
This is just every light skill and I suggest getting lvl 20 in bichoen or even higher if you go pure light, since it’s fairly simple to get the hang of and a good build for beginners. This is a fun build and the one I am going as well, I would have gone fire, but Light and Fire don’t look good together (lol).

This is probably the coolest looking build and the best combo. Sword gets plenty of close range hits and with the light combo, you ensure it will never be a bother to you. I would suggest getting more in Cold later on, but this would be fine for a while.
