    Maybe we can bring the luk mage back???

    Staff > Increase Casting speed and with HP/MP bonus.
    Other Hight lv Luk Mage Equipment > Increase Defensive and HP/MP bonus.

    Mana Reflection > Reflecting rate increased to 90%.

    C/L, Paralyze, A/R > Increase damage.



    This way,
    Luk mage might not be able to 1hit most mobs like lukless,
    But with increased casting speed , Luk mage will do more DPM in Boss and more hp/mp . And of course with fancy looking gears.

    Any thoughts guys?

    I like the idea that mages could be built either for map clearing or for bossing. This has potential.

    Make sure to consider how this would effect the current player base. Not just new mages, but all the existing mages as well. What do you think the impact would be?

    The Current mage would be a little nurfed by increasing mana cost.

    yea I think this idea has more leverage if the current Mages are untouched, but instead given another build path to fill a different niche.

    Why would you nerf every mage class to make an nonviable build more appealing? Also you can be lukless and equip all the mage gear except the elemental staffs. Not too hard if you make a luk auf helmet. Also the mana cost is already high we pay the most for pots, no reason to make mages less profitable.

    LUK mage is already viable. It's honestly completely fine and doesn't need a buff at all. If anything the best would be to make LUK increase min damage (similar to DEX for warriors) or increase the amount of avoid mages get from LUK.

    There's a handful of high level mage mains and a couple of those are luk mages.
    One big deterrent for people to move to luk mage would be the untradeable nature of timeless gear.

    As for Elemental staves, they are far from optimal but even those are used by some

    LUK mage is actually strongest mage in game. You just need insane funding and finetuning your LUK to have minimum amount needed to equip everything. But Timeless gear does exist for a reason.

    I think LUK is good even if you're not rich because staff scrolls are cheap AF and so are LUK scrolls (ie for cape or OA). Remember every point of LUK on your equips is a point of INT in your AP. Right now I'm rocking a 161 TMA Elemental Staff 3, it cost me less than 5m to make. You are not gonna make an ele wand even close to that for anywhere under 50m.
