Mage

Post has published by Novocaine

The mage is probably the most feared class in combat, particularly by warriors, due to his purely offensive magical abilities. Unlike other classes, the mage cannot equip any type of weapon or armor, except enchanted clothing. Higher Intelligence levels allow the mage to cast more powerful spells, while sacrificing vitality. The magician is therefore the most fragile class ever and must therefore pay close attention to his own dexterity (generally very low, sacrificed in favor of intelligence) in order not to run out of stamina, thus becoming an easy target to take down. The cost of equipment for wizards is undoubtedly the cheapest, but if you don’t know enough spells it could be difficult to earn even the little to support yourself. Upon creating your character, you will be given the spell book with some basic spells. The next spells you can learn by meditating on the parchments, the scrolls can be obtained in various ways, the main ones are: Find them in the loot of killed monsters or buy them from other players. It is also possible to create them with the skill inscription
