  • [Class Guide] All About Dark Wizard

    Hello, Mutizens!

    I'm creating this topic after the success of the poll where I asked players if they would like to see sticked topics about builds, master skill tree, tips and so on for each class. So, please, make use of it!

    Since there might be more than one kind of build for a class, be specific whenever requesting help or posting informations.

    To newcomers or players that are learning, avoid asking for help without provide any information. Do your homework, make some tests, gather up some doubts and do the questions related to them. Many players dedicated lot of their time in order to learn something or discover good combinations, so don't expect to receive everything easily and respect if someone refuses to share specific details, after all, things like that is what makes a character stand out in the crowd!

    We are here to help each other and, maybe, discover new things, so, please, keep the environment clean and friendly...

    Thanks,
    s0ul.

    Well well well... Let me start this then?! Gonna post a newbie info on everyclass guide, just for those who have no idea how to start. Specific builds and tests I'm gonna leave for the pros. I'm not going to tell you how many points you should have here and there, just giving you an idea on how to think when you're planning your build.

    For the SM, you can at first be one of this 2 kinds: ASM (agility) and ESM (energy)

    The ASM is a build focused on the buff Soul Barrier (which increases its absorption by the amount of agility), at high level stuff this buff helps alot, as it decreases the damage dealt on your party members. This class basically doesn't attack, just stay there giving Soul Barrier to the party. Not recommended for first timers, as it requires to always level in party and is very weak on his attacks.

    The ESM is a build based on dps. There are many discussions about ESM builds, as it is one of the most complex chars, some prefer to do it as hybrid, others see no way besides energy* (*when talking about dps build). It's not well looked nowadays as it has no pvp potential, it's kinda a forgotten char on this aspect. But nonetheless, its a good pvm char, also for hunt. At leveling, before the MasterLevel, having an energy elf together is almost a must, as you have probably the lowest deffense on the entire game. Your main skills are going to be Flame, Evil Spirit and Ice Storm.

    I hope this gathers more people to share their opinion about ESM.

    Cya.

      basic aspect

    Okay, so my current build is:

    Build:
    302 strength (trying to get +15 Inberial)
    100 Agility
    65 (base + ancients)
    1939 Energy

    Gear:
    +9+16+mana+xdmg platina staff +joh wiz dmg opt
    +9+DD+HP leg shield + joh def opt
    +9+16+10stamina Anubis set
    +9+16+10stamina Barnake pants,boots
    3rd wing +14+16wizdmg

    My build is focused purely on PVM/HUNT SM, I also have an EE character with me now that's level 432, my SM is level 442.

    At the moment I have 30 points in Wisdom tree, 10 in atk/rate, 10 in wiz dmg% expansion, and then 10 in wiz dmg crit%..

    Now, I'm tossing up between starting in Peace tree for more defense or Overcome tree for more damage.. Since I'll have EE with me all the time, I was thinking about adding points in Overcome, but then I thought, maybe I'll be too weak for Nars and hunting even with my EE?

    Thoughts anyone?

      Well, I think if you are planning to lvl up in NARS, here are my tips:
      1. Need at least a penta +9
      2. Need defense and hp, mobs hit really hard there.
      3. Nars is about to kill fast

      I'm aMG and I have 1.7k defense and 1.1k+ hp and I still cant lvl in Nars (solo). I think you should go for Peace

      Yeh I have +9 Penta on both characters, Hmm.

      So should I get 40 points in Overcome so I can have at least 10 points in the soul barrier strengthen? That will give me an additional 10% reduction in damage.

      Then I can spec some into Peace? And get the HP stat in Wisdom (about 10 points).

      i probably would go for hybrid sm with this kind of gear..more survivability..why??...More Agi = more element def and element dmg.

  • #4
    Hello Every1 i have a question about Esm and his ilusion skill in the tree says the "alter ego" has the 30% change to recive the dmg also he attack and he dissappears when he die or time finish...

    But how many seconds its that "time"

    also if i got
    2.1k energy
    build durability imp+WWring+ ilusion with blast mana skill 10/20 do u think that would be good for hunt?

    also with 20/20 in Wizardry power up and 20/20 staff damage increase...

    i saw a guy in youtube he said that skill its not good because in pvp die super easy "the ilussion" but i wonder if for pvm killing medu, gaion , kundun would be fine

    im thinking ideas to be a good Esm cuz there is alot of pple who says that charts its super expensive and u can make more with RF Smg o Gl with 50% less in jewels and items

    thank you very much im waiting for ideas...

    PD: build would be
    streng for set (dark devil+13 o 15/ bloodangel ancient set+9/enis +anubis +13+16)
    agility 300
    sta base
    2100 energy

    Hi all. I returned to the game after a long absence. I decided to create a character Soul Master. All the points would add to energy.I have reached the 400 level and collected a nice set Anubis + Bernake. Now all write that it is bezu┼╝uteczna character and good for nothing suitable. Is energy sm good or not? Do I need to reset the points and make agi sm-a? Your opinion?

      I have 400lvl and anubis set +bernake and platina staff +exc dmg. People write that this character is useless because it can not cope on the hunt, pvp, cs. So in what way it is good and how to build it? How much should I have agillity and vit/?

      What's your build (ENG, STR, AGI, VIT)?
      What's your damage?
      Do you have wings (Magic, Soul or Eternal)

  • #6
    And your other question? No, the Eng SM ARE NOT shit characters. See this guy:

      yet, Evil spirit helps you unluck magic mastery.... so it will become kind of must at high levels...

      About the vids:
      1)AE hit miss on elemental damage? what a joke^^
      2) Taking ages to kill a medusa at 1/3rd hp while other chars kill it from 100% in less time
      3) Again, he gets miss on elemental damage lol

      elemental always misses if in a party javier , both duels were in a party I guess because oldschool duel make party if dueling without pots to make sure nobody changes their minds^^ and starts drinking pots

      Since no elemental dmg yeah the outcome can be very different...but I did find some other vids of duels where sm wins vs bm or rf, not in a pt so elemental dmg was active, the thing is those guys weren't using cash shop buffs..

      So, if anyone has a link to any duel where sm can win vs ae,bm,rf similar lvl and duel is not in a pt and both of them using cash shop buffs I would like to watch that^^

      No man, in lvl 400 is hard to hunt in Kanturu 3 xD. You need to be lvl 500 or more to kill them. Follow this guide where you put your masters points

      http://www.guiamuonline.com/grand-master-energia (Active english trastale)

      PD: Dont Put in Evil Spitis, put the 10 points in Flame or Soul Barrier

      Dude, stop saying something that isnt right, he will need to put points in Evil Spirit... lol

  • #8
    Here is my ML tree:



    Nars mobs hit me for 500-700 elemental dmg and 70-150 normal DMG... Without my EE, not sure what it is with my EE..
    The only spells I use is Flame and Evil Spirit, and it adds SO much damage to these spells IMO it is definitely worth getting the strengtheners. Not sure how far down I'll spec in the right side, probably until I get 10 points in Max Wiz DMG, and then I'll start advancing further down left tree spec till I get energy stat and then Wing Stats.

      s0uLLess: so one needs to put the 10 points in Evil Spirit in order to be able to put the points in Magic Mastery (the solid line between these 2)? I assume Magic Mastery is pretty important but how much extra damage does it give? (The Magic Mastery skill is called Grand Wizard in MUDamage7 which is on guiamuonline but it just gives a number or is this a percentage?)

      Off topic: I hate the complete mess Mu Online is when it comes to information, what you read on one site is conflicting with information you read somewhere else. And even the official site is so full of wrong information, the only thing you can trust is the game itself... Does not really help if you do not have a character that high to check yourself.

      Yeah...A large part of the Mu community doesn't like sharing information(even in a vague manner) about builds, quests, or game mechanics. This makes the game harder/discouraging to jump into for the new players that try out the game. I totally understand the concept of not spoon feeding every bit of game information (like exact stats for a build), but I don't think players should be hesitant to push people in the right direction.

      This hits pretty close to home for me because my brother got into the game recently. He's always coming and asking me questions or posting on the forums for help, because the information out there is very limited, very hard to find, or outdated.

      However, these class guide threads are a step in the right direction. It's really cool to see the community stepping toward a more informative phase.

      WTYML, yes, you will need to put 10 points in ES Strengthener in order to increase Magic Mastery skill.
      With 10 points in Magic Mastery, Wizardry damage is increased in 32.

      BTW, it was always like that and the same happends with old games, you always have wikis and blogs, but not just a really good source with all info concentrated!

    Rag3312, my SM has 1332 HP, 860 defense and +9 EARTH Pentagram, also my soul barrier is at 31% absorb damage (not sure if i had this on when testing).

    When I went to water mobs (weakest element against earth) they hit me for around 430 elemental to 550 elemental damage. The other elements hit me higher, up to 700+.

    I don't level in Nars, I need a far better pentagram or at least one with an elemental defense slot...

    Anyway - I'm thinking about getting an "Iron Shield of the Magic", with two slots, anger and blessing. With this I'll get an Errtel Anger Rank 2 Level 3 which will activate the ancient option Pentagram defense +10%...

    The Pentagram shouldn't cost that much.. depends on the seller really, anywhere around 30-90 souls. But it's also rare to find Anger+Blessing slots activated. The Errtel is what is gonna kill me, probably around 600-900 bless, and this is also rare to find

      This is probably little bit different question from usual ones but I would like to know now that we have this new cc system is it possible to create decent cc sm for cc3 ( max lvl 349).

      I was wondering agi build and ene just enough for ice storm 8xx ( so you can still kill some mobs and get jewels from them). Rest would go to agility (around 1000agi) so I would have decent def/attack succes rate, good soul barrier, speed around 160 with ale+wiz ring and speed pend and really high defense.

      as gear I would use dark soul set+15+16 (possibly dd joh option)
      platina+15+l+bypass
      2nd wings+15+l
      some random shield, haven't decided yet, probably one I can get ddjoh to

      My only concerns are:
      1. Build with like 500agi rest ene is probably better...
      2.my dmg might be too low to be able to kill anything, maybe my bypass can kill some low hp characters like ae or summoner but I am not sure about that either.
      3. no matter how good your speed is as a sm your tele seems to be bugged or something like that, aes with lower speed can hit you between tele and rf can do chain drive to you through tele so I am not sure will it work.
      4. Sm sucks, not sure if I can make it work in low lvl cc with my budget


      Another option would be to just go full hp build but I think it's not going to work either. I just really want to make sm work in cc but its really hard currently and I feel like this
      300 str
      1k agi
      base hp
      8xx ene

      build might not be useful:P. Any ideas from some pro cc players/ sm players?

        I have a succesful CC3 SM which can own it with a nice % rate (can't always trust I won't die because of GL bugged damage when breaking SD), but it is just my test SM, but it is only a run-through, when I get my main done, I will bring some light about it

      Hello , its me again hehe. I'm one doubts where should I put these points in my master three . I am currently leveling in nars with party , however 'm thinking of leveling alone at some spot acheron or Kanturu relicics . Already tested in Kanturu and kill easily with the flame , the damage that I get I can recover, so I'm not using pot 's. I do not know if I should add points in the Evil Spirit and Magic Mastery , or if I should go to Overcome and put in one handed staff. This thinking of leveling solo.

      Gear:
      Anubis Set+13+L
      Inberial+13+L+BonusMagicalDMG+5
      Guardian Shield+13+L+BonusDEF
      Legendary P/B +13+L+DecreaseDMG+7%
      Pendant Ice [HP Recovery3%] [ExDMG] [WIZ DMG1/20] [Mana/8]
      Ring Magic [Maximum Life4%] [Maximum Mana4%] [DD4%]
      Wings+14+4%

        I would add next 10 points on ML HP, unless you are going to keep leveling for a while, they are very useful and a big deal (will increase your HP vastly). After that, overcome is the way to go. If you are leveling using flame, I would add some points it gives a nice boost

        Hello there,

        After 10 years without playing Mu Online, I'm back. As a "new old player", I can see that a lot has changed and I'm learning all of it again. Without any further, I'd like some tips on the following issue:

        What's a good cost/benefit level up set and weapon to buy and improve my character?
        Note that I'm currently playing on Helheim server as a Dark Wizard, about level ~100 and - as a beginner - I do not have a lot to expend on itens.

        Thank you, guys.

        Regards,
        BigEasy
