Where should I go to beat things up now?
10-15- Here, with the mage, is where you'll have to take it a bit easy. You'll need to quickly get your EC levels up to at least 12 so you can learn your row damage spells, avalanche and fireball. So going straight into the slime caves or out into major combat areas isn't very smart. Since you'll be working with rather weak single target spells, you'll want to stay around your villiage and fight the weaker monsters. You might even want to fight the little level 1-3 monsters just outside the small villiages to get your EC up quickly. The beauty of the elemental control, is that it levels up just by using magic, it doesn't matter what you're casting it against.
20-25- Here you'll still be in level 2 of the slime caves. As the experience starts to come more slowly, you'll want to move west and start fighting the light and dark slimes. Watch out for these, they can be a handful. Those dark slimes love to cast spells. Dimension distortion and poison aren't a whole lot of fun when they're pointed at you. Your healing and armor pets will be getting a lot of use here. But what you take in damage, you'll more than make up for in experience.
25-30- Here's where you finish up soloing against those annoying light and dark slimes and move on to the bigger fish. Slime cave level 3. If you're not comfortable fighting the monsters in here yet, you should still be getting enough exp. from those light and darkies to keep you occupied for a couple of levels, then you can move on up.
30-35- Here you can finally move out of the slime caves and put some diversity in your life. Now you should have well over level 36 EC and a thirst for blood. Having spells such as inferno and wrath of lands in your fingertips, you can pretty much go wherever you want to. Goldburg lake might be some good game, or maybe crystal mountain, sleepy lake. Anywhere you can find monsters at or around your level.
35-40- Same applies here, the main strategy is to keep the mobs at or around your level. For this you'll want to head to places like moonglow, the tanrana maze, the dark caves, etc.
40 and beyond- For this, much like all classes, you're at a loss of experience until updates. You can continue fighting the level 40 mobs for for a few levels. But like other classes, if you want to power level after this point, you're going to want to find an acolyte of darkness that has the dark ritual spell to help you out
Power Leveling(for mages)
|Submitted by: k8|
|I'm a level 28 mage with ec 33, and I solo in candy mountain without a healing pet. (Yes, and you can too!) I've been power leveling there since I was level 26, but I assume with good con you could do it even before then. What you will need is a good con/str pet that can learn transfer hp so they're always there in battle in case you need a quick hp boost, and a good con/con pet for armour. What I like to use is my metal slug and my woodhog (which also cheaper then wood crabs). Before every battle you need to have a decent amount of hp & mp that will carry you through the battle (roughly 300hp and 150mp). Get into a battle. Spam your flamehail, this will kill the metal monkeys quickly before they kill you off. You don't need to worry about the earth wolves, (at the most with a good wood pet on armour they will hit you for about 70 from wrath of land). Just keep spamming your highest level spell (mostly probably flame hail at this point this will also help raise your ec lvl) against the earth wolves until they die. After the fight, start praying until you have full mp. Click on you transfer hp pet, and get it to transfer hp with you, after which it's hp will most likely drop down to zero (sometimes my pet's hp drops to 22, but that's really rare). Heal your pet (*if you have a metal slug get it to learn heal as well, so you won't spend hours sitting there praying and healing your pet's hp to full). Currently my slug is lvl 27 and has 700+ hp and does 150~ on the earth wolves, while they do about up to a max of 100 on it. So after each battle I only need to spend about 25mp to heal it to full hp so it can do transfer hp with me, and then 50 more mp to heal it to full hp again. Normally after each battle I get about 500-1k exp from fighting the mobs (I also have a +exp ring).|
