Since some people cannot understand ,
THIS IS MERELY A GUIDE. It is not to be used
soley to create your build , although the
builds are recommended!
Part 1: How to level to High Wizard
First you begin by killing Spores and wolves Until you get to roughly level 40. To kill spores you should take use of the towers in the start of payon and lighting bolt the spores from the top where they can’t reach you , If you can’t find any spores , then you will have to hit and run , lighting bolt and run like hell. As soon as you max fire bolt , your off to wolves. Now you must be very careful here , their are 2 ways of doing this , One you get someone on the map to tank them for you , or you solo. To solo them , get an aco for agi up , and use level 2-4 firebolt on him until he dies (To do this you should have pumped dex equally as int) Once you hit level 40 , your off to soils , now their are 2 ways to do soils effectively:
Soils (lou_fild01) : First you must make sure you have Fire Wall , but that is the easy part , you must learn to do vertical fire wall , to do this you must cast fire wall 1 cell left and down , or one cell right and down , or 2 cells down of you , note when doing soils you won’t have time to count cells , so test this at spores or wolves first . You must do 3 firewalls , or 2 .
While the soil rams the firewall , you must fire bolt it , use level 10 , don’t worry the fire wall will keep it at bay.
Now the second Technique (for when your a bit higher level) is to use fireball , hot key level 1 fire bolt , gather 4-5 soils , hot key fire ball , and make sure the soils are on your screen but far away , circle around the soils are fireball spam them until they are all dead.
When you are done with soils you should be job 50 and around 64 Base . Now you must do the scary wizard test , here’s a guide for that here: http://ratemyserver.net/quest_db.php?type=60000&qid=60013
Now you wanna get 99 asap , this is the boring part i guess . To get 99 you must start off at Siromas (Before you get to the Ice Cave you need Jupital Thunder Maxed and make sure to have Frost Diver) (it is also wise to use a quad hill wind rod , not needed though) To do siromas , you should Jupital Thunder all siromas in Sight. Your main enemy will be Gazeti‘s , the only way to kill these is to stay out of the gazeti’s sight , and to Lord of Vermilion , and then walk the gazeti into it (be very careful) . As for roweans , use frost diver and Jupital Thunder them . You can also kill the green plants with fire bolt. (Siroma cards sell well , you should save them and make a vending slave later) After a while of grinding you should be 90. Now you have 2 choices , party till 99 , or come to the nine tail map (pay_fild11, I prefer option 2).
Nine tails : These guys are very scary , but don’t be afraid its worth it. To do these you must have , Quagmire level 2 , Heavens Drive level 1 , and Storm Gust level 5 Hotkey’d . First Step is , get a priest slave , and always have Kyrie Eleison, bless , and agility up on. Step 2 : gather a mob . Step 3 : Get about 10 or so cells away from the mob . cast level 5 storm gust and all the nine tails should be dead. Now to kill the Dragon Tail, you must Quagmire (always keep them Quagmired) , now heavens drive them , and run in circles at the same time , soon they should be dead. This map gives very good exp , and very good zeny . now if you Still don’t understand how to do this map watch this video Nine Tail Mobbing(Credits to BananaWeed) Note he does the opposite , and Heaven Drive’s first , its fine ethier way , stay a bit further back when killing the nine tails though (His dex is higher )
Party Leveling 1 : Thor’s Volcano
For the Bow Guardians Stay In PNUAMA !!!
Do Not Walk into the Salamanders !! Stay Back and SG !!
Thors Skills Need :
1. Storm Gust
2. Jupital Thunder (in case of low sp)
3. 1 High Wizards
4. 2 High Priests
6. Possibly Sniper , not needed though.
How to do it :
First off , The paliden or prof stays in front to lure mobs. You must move slowly , and everyone must have a pasana Armour. One Hwiz stays in front and casts SG , as soon as that happens the Hwiz behind casts SG . So when the mob walks through it will usually die. Try to not run low on sp. If you run into a sword guardian , make sure your hp spams pnuama and then you walk around in circles doing SG. Kasas are very annoying , they have high mdef and spam that KO’ing skill if pasana is off. So be very careful around those guys.

4. Professor or Gypsy
How to do it :
The paliden will go get a mob of 3-7 necromancers. The HP MUST spam suff on you , and while that happens you must Spam MS level 10. When the mob comes in they will die before they even get close to you. But if that fails , cast level 1 sg and quagmire. Then cast level 5 sg , they will ussaully be dead by now.
Stay in Pnuama for Ragged Zombies:
Teleport Or Rude attack on Sight for Fallen Bishop (Tips at bottom for info):

3. Lord Of Vermilion (optional)
4. Fire Bolt
5. Jupital Thunder

How to do it:
You basically either walk and kill , or have the HP mob and you kill. For normal mobs , Cast Fire Bolt or JT . If you run into a mob , locate pnuama and then cast SG or MS. MS ussaully works best with higher dex. if you run into a necro , cast level 10 SG and walk around the necro until he dies. The HP must lex once.

Afterward you must do SG , you can ethier cast LoV after they freeze or you can use Heavens Drive. Right After do SG again. Once they die you get a ton of exp!
At the end of this you should be 99. Now you should do some quests till the last step so when you trans you can just get job 50 with no work . You should do the Lost Child quest , and then do the Rachel Quest until the final step . You should also do the ice necklace quest till the last step . And the Friendship quest . this will get you 7x trans and job 50. Go talk to the npc and yuno and go make novice . kill some porings till level 10/10 , go make high mage . and then go talk to the last npc’s for your quests. Your a high wizard now. Use the same methods of leveling.

Please note , earrings are meant as temporary accessories and this is why quoted from Accent
“The +4 int difference from two earrings did raise the mattk to the next bonus.
Your fact is very easy to prove incorrect using basic math. I’ll even take your glorified example of 156 int versus 160 int:
At 156 int your matk bonus (not the actual matk, just the bonus from the floor(int/5)^2, as I’m only concerned with the derivative) is 973.
At 160 int your matk bonus is 1024 + 4 (from the additional int), or 1028.
The gain from 4 int resulted in a (1028/973)-1)*100% change: 5.65% change in damage.
If we assume you have dex with bonuses totaling 110 (very low considering you have gospel with 160 int), that leaves you 40 dex from the point of instant cast. This means you are at (1-(110/150))*100% = 26% cast time of the full cast-time. Increasing your dex from 110 to 118 (two nimbles) puts you at (1-(118/150))*100% = 21% cast time of the full cast-time.
Meaning an increase in dex from 110 to 118 results in a (1-(21/26))*100% = 19.3% decrease in total cast-time.
We let your DPS be a function: DPS = f(int damage) * f(cast time) where f(x) denotes function of the variable x.
Since we’re interested in the change in DPS, we take the derivative and get: delta DPS = delta f(int damage) * delta f(cast time).
Taking the earrings we get: delta DPS = 5.65% * 1 (variable did not change) = 5.65%DPS
Taking the gloves we get: delta DPS = 1 * 119.3% = 19.3%DPS.
Its very easy to see that the dex increases have a much stronger effect on the DPS formula. Of course, skeptics will claim that I did not include after-cast-delay, but as has already been stated with a decent guild(read: clown) the delay is almost inconsequential. If you dont accept the claim, then the difference in the delta DPS will change, but I assure you that as long as you are in a decent bragi, the dex change will always surpass the int change (you can do the math yourself, its a little more complicated though).
I also took a very low total dex for the wizard, considering he is in gospel; had I used a base dex number like 130, the change in nimble gloves would have resulted in a 50%DPS change whilst the int change would have remained the same. This mathematical proof is backed up by doddler’s calculator which clearly shows that the DPS is changed by dex far more than int. “
The above is meant to be applied for stackable spells , however if you want to do more then MA and SG , i would have a decent amount of dex.
Stat Builds : Pure Power House
97~99 int ( Or 126,135 Int total)
89 ~93 dex (120 Dex Total)
rest into str
This build is mainly for precasting , hurting others very hard , and to MvP / PvM
Speed Caster ~!
99 dex (130 Dex total)
85-89 int (115-120 Int Total)
rest into str
Battle Chant outside of emp room/mvp area. (aka premp) This is mainly for MvPing and WoE’ing
Tanker ..? Moderate
95 Dex (124-126 dex Total)
84 Int (114 int Total)
This build is meant for WoE SE , I do not reccomend ever using it in FE castles , or PvM situations.
Pure Precast / MvP Build
99 Dex (130 Dex Total)
99 Int (130 Int Total)
2x~3x vit (25, 35 vit total)
rest into str (You can only get str with 2x vit)
Its mainly to precast (which is a bit boring sometimes) And its to party MvP or level. This build is for fun , but in woe it suffers , be ready to tax large amounts of damege from most things :(
PvM Pure Build
Usually in this build int and dex are evened out so mvping or in pvm it won’t be as bad . Since both int and dex are the same.
95-96 dex ( 124-126 dex Total)
95-96 int ( 125 int Total)
The Offensive Skill Build For WoE : (3 points into what you want)
This build can break empiriums (Yeah xD I KNOW) , this build can hurt people . It incorporates Safety Wall and Stone Curse (use while running to emp or when someone hops on emp) Ah also don’t forget Gabantian is a nice skill to invest into if you want to ruin smartass Scholars.
The Pure Defense Build For Woe:
Another Alternative for pure precast (slightly Different)
This build is purely for defense , using SG , MS , and Fire Piller in the build . Fire Piller is used to cancel Kaite and to deal some damege. You can also change the build by removing fire piller and getting lord of vermillion. And you can Lower Sp Reco to level 1 and get ice wall to level 5.
~Soon to come PvM skill Build
Part 3 Mvping:
A High Wizard can solo a few MvP’s , Such as
GTB : SG and Fly Wing , or bring bragi slave . and hitlock w/ sg and kill .
Gold , Golden Thief Bug Card
Eddga : Walk Circles and SG , Make sure you have buffs.
Main Goal :
Garm : Amplified JT , or Amplified LoV , Bring a Marc , and stay as far back as possible
Important Items :
Osiris : Amplified SG , SG on the corner of the screen so hes visable , and walk him into it , afterward , teliport and repeat till he is dead.
Important Gain :
Moonlight Flower : Do not get on her screen , just SG and lure her into the SG and tp , if you get on her screen she spams , ME , Mammo . and screen silence.
Important Gain :
Maya : Teleport , locate her , SG . and she will teleport , repeat , until she is dead.
Important Drops :
Mvps Needed with Parties!
Important Drops :
Old Card Album
Gloom Under Night Card
Main Gain :
Gloom Under Night – On some servers he may be very easy , this is specifically for servers which do not have hitlock!. The best way to kill this guy , is to first clear the area on side. You must lure gloom to that side , near the bottom of it. For the party : You need 2-3 Hwiz’s , highest Int casts SG and others cast MS. You need 1 hp and a prof and clown.You just Walk backward while hailing him with AoE Attacks. He should go down within 10 Minutes. Make sure the area is completely clear before advancing!
Bio Mvps : Ussaully the method used to kill this is the ledge method. First step , make sure to teliport all random mobs away , you do this by getting the monster stuck on one side with ice wall and then casting sg. However SG will not work on Cecil Or Howard. For cecil you must either MS and move away a bit , or heaven’s drive on pnuama / wall of fog. For howard just JT him in the ass , he’ll tp instantly almost. Makes sure the mob cannot walk to you while doing so , this means the gap must be completely closed , for this to work well you can adjust your view to see the wall vertically, however it must be done quickly. Once you are sure it is closed , you may use the correct skill to teliport them. Next you must get the champ on one of the 4 ledges and then have a sinx or stalker lure it there. However in many cases a sinx can be used to teliport the non demon mobs[Hwiz /Cecil/WS]
Marked off here are the ledges:
The champ will have to be ressed many times over and over .Now the hwiz must Cast 3 Icewalls to block off the mvp. They must be constantly up , directly 1 cell behind the mvp. The icewalls cannot be right on top of the mvp , they must be just blocking its movement.Next the champ will use steel body and depending on which mvp you will ethier AD, TSS , DS , AV , ect to kill it. The mvp if set up correctly will most likely take 30 minutes to and hour to kill . if you lucky with getting him on spot it will take roughly 10 minutes or so.
Tips and Such : In woe try to stand near your guildies , if you get to far you are endangering yourself. Use the party menu to locate bards on the woe map . Make sure your bards bragi you.
In Woe , try to precast all the time unless something dangerous comes through , for instance an LK , quagmire him and go back to precasting.
Even though you are a fragile character , do not be afraid to pot. When breaking some guilds precast (for 150 dex build) , let a guildie distract the precast , and then rush in and mainly target Guild Leaders, Other Wizards . etc.
Sometimes their is room behind Loki’s Viel near the portal , use this to your advantage and storm gust level 1 the bard/dancer , it usually kills them. Never Underestimate your skills , Storm Gust and JT are not the only skills you can use , make use of all of them! This guide will be updated sometimes to match the par of new ideas.
Rude Attack : Use level 1 SG and move back as far as possible this will make certain MvP’s/mobs to teliport
Learning to Dance
Learning to dance , simply means , being able to act quickly and to be able to pot , or spam different forms of skills . For example at necromancers , you should be able to , SG , then fire bolt the necromancer , while Jupital Thundering away the banshees . This takes a very long time to master , and should be tested on weaker mobs . a good way to develop this skill is to do nine tails or stuff like that. Being quick is important in woe you should be able to , Quagmire White smiths in your way , while doing level 1-5 SG , and be able to keep sight always on , while heavens driving every now and then. In woe you have to learn to , have an SG going , while heavens driving , and keeping SW on all 4 cells , and then go back for that SG again to keep precast going. Note if you are not on SG duty and on MS duty it will be much harder to do this , so just stick to MS and Heavens Drive in this situation.
Battle Mode and skill Bar
Battle mode is important . if you don’t use it get it! . without battle mode playing a wizard , will suck .Because you need to use many many skills in order to do well in woe! Battle Mode is basically like a normal skill set up , except it uses 3 rows . To activate it , press /bm. Afterward your skills will be move from the : Q-P for The 3rd Skill Bar, A-L for the first skill Bar , and Z->(or perioid key) for the second skill Bar . Most High Wizards use Z for mystic amplification and the A-L keys for secondary skills , and Q-P for main skills .
I will show you an example of this with my skill Bar :
Whites on A Greens or Pacea on G Safety Wall on F which is a Supportive and Energy Coat on H which is also Supportive
Mystic Amp on Z Quagmire on X Earth Spike on C (use to kill stalker and annoy Sinx) Firebolt on V .
Storm Gust Levels 1 , 5 , and 10 in order . MS on R . Sight and Sightrasher next to each other( Great in pvp)
Using foods is usually necessary. Its usually best to use +8 foods being of the most easy to make , but the downfall is the needing of royal cooking sets for high success. You should use Dex And Int foods , vit food is also very helpful. You should never spam foods when you know you will die. Its ussaully best to use while defending , or while mvping with a decent party. You should carry bwings if you plan to use food often , for if you die it runs out and you do not want to waste it! so hotkey those bwings!
I hope you enjoyed reading this guide!
