How to read this skill build? 16 – 18 means Level 16, 17 and 18 [Level 16 to 18]. For 20 – 20, it means only Level 20. The guide below is purely a personal recommendation and need not be followed. Each skill listed below has advices/tips shared by senior players to guide you in building your character!

Pearl of Knowledge:
Ice/Lightning Wizard specializes in freezing monsters and dealing extra damage against monsters that are weak ice and weak lightning. This type of wizard is both offense and defense, a mix of Cleric and Fire/Poison mage, where it could use its freezing ability to defend himself from being hurt by monster while dealing lots of damage similar to Fire/Poison Wizard. Some monsters are not freezable.

Below is the hierarchy order of Pirate advancement: [Magician Main Page]
Pirate -> Gunslinger -> Vaklyrie (Outlaw) -> Captain (Corsair)
Pirate -> Infighter (Brawler) -> Buccaneer (Marauder) -> Viper (Buccaneer)

Ice Skill Build
Saving Meso Build through Cold Beam (Freeze)
30 – 30 : Teleport 1
31 – 35 : Cold Beam 3
36 – 37 : Save 3 SP
38 – 38 : Cold Beam 9 [Use Save SP here!]
39 – 40 : Cold Beam 3 [MAX]
41 – 41 : MP Eater 3
42 – 47 : Meditation 3
48 – 48 : Meditation 2 [MAX], Thunderbolt 1
49 – 57 : Thunderbolt 3
58 – 58 : Thunderbolt 2 [MAX], Teleport 1
59 – 64 : Teleport 3 [Max Teleport!]
65 – 69 : MP Eater 3
70 – 70 : MP Eater 2, Slow 1 [Max Mp Eater!]
Summary – Total 121 SP
Cold Beam [MAX] / Thunderbolt [MAX] / Slow [1/20]
MP Eater 20 [MAX] / Meditation 20 [MAX] / Teleport 20 [MAX]
Reason for this Build
This build is for players who would like to save MP Potions. Cold Beam is maxed first so that you can have both offense and defense skill. Cold Beam has similar traits as Magic Claw which can go through any obstacles but Cold Beam has the ability freeze! You could attack monster from far range compare to Thunderbolt.

Lightning Skill Build
Power Leveling for Funder Players, spamming Thunderbolt against mobs!
30 – 30 : Teleport 1
31 – 35 : Thunderbolt 3
36 – 38 : Save 3 SP
39 – 39 : Thunderbolt 12 [Use Save SP here!]
40 – 40 : Thunderbolt 3 [MAX]
41 – 41 : MP Eater 3
42 – 47 : Meditation 3
48 – 48 : Meditation 2 [MAX], Cold Beam 1
49 – 57 : Cold Beam 3
58 – 58 : Cold Beam 2 [MAX], Teleport 1
59 – 64 : Teleport 3 [MAX]
65 – 69 : MP Eater 3
70 – 70 : MP Eater 2 [MAX], Slow 1
Summary – Total 121 SP
Cold Beam [MAX] / Thunderbolt [MAX] / Slow [1/20]
MP Eater 20 [MAX] / Meditation 20 [MAX] / Teleport 20 [MAX]
Reason for this Build
This is for players who want to max out Thunderbolt first, and Cold Beam later. This build focuses on killing mobs (many monster) at close range. However, close range would result in consuming more HP Potions since there is a high frequency of bumping into monster. Nevertheless, maxing thunderbolt first speed up training similar to Cleric Heal. Thunderbolt deals more damage compare to Cleric Heal but in a disadvantage of spamming HP Potions and MP Potions (if magic guard is activated!)

MP Eater 20 [MAX] / Meditation 20 [MAX] / Teleport 20 [MAX] / Slow 20 [MAX]
Reason for this Build
For extreme players who want to be pure (1 core offense skill) with Slow maxed!

maplestory-mp-eaterMP Eater (more info)
Drain enemy’s MP after every magic attack unless enemy MP reaches 0 Mp. Works passively (automatic). Most people recommend to max this skill as it saves you a lot of Mp potions (saves meso) during 2nd and 4th job training. If you see Blue Stars encircling your character, it shows that Mp Eater is activated. Cleric love this skill because undead monsters has the highest Mp compare to other monsters. Mp Eater works on single and multiple-monsters. However, the total Mp drained for a single vs multiple is equivalent.

maplestory-meditationMeditation
Temporarily boost up the magic attack of party members nearby. It works on all jobs (warrior, thief, bowman, magician, pirate). However, magician is the only one who will be benefiting from this temporary magic attack boost since they deal damage via magic attack. Does not stack with magic attack potion booster. Recommended to be Max!

Use the arrow keys to teleport to other places in the same map on a set distance. Useful to move around within large maps quickly, assist in training (reach to the monster quicker), escape from monster attacks (teleport away). Teleport is able to move you left, right, up and down. It is also required in Ludibrium Party Quest. In short, this skill is recommended to be Max

maplestory-slowSlow
Temporarily slows down 6 opponents around you. Can’t use it on them twice at once. Works on boss monsters (e.g. Crimson Balrog, Anego, Werewolf). This skill could be dropped (Not a must to max this). This works handy when you solo boss monster alone, if your knockback does not work, it gives you sufficient time to teleport away while your enemy crawls towards you (slow effect)

cold-beamCold Beam (pic)
Temporarily freezes a target. Fire-based receive 1.5X damage, but ice-based enemies get half. This skill is commonly added first because it is meso making skill. You temporarily freeze the monster so they could not counterattack you (no bumping/spell attack) and this is how you save Hp potions. This skill works best on Fire-base monsters (deals extra damage) but weak against Ice-base monsters. It could go through obstacles (similar to Magic Claw 1st job skill)

thunderboltThunderbolt (pic)
Affects 6 enemies nearby. Weak lightning receive 1.5X damage, but anti lightning get half. This skill deals less damage than Cold Beam on a single monster, however if its collectively (mobs), then Thunderbolt damage shines! When Thunderbolt affects 6 mobs at once, its total damage is double than Cold Beam. This skill is useful to clear mobs (lots of monsters). Able to hit monsters above and below your platform. Unlike Cleric heal skill, you could not jump and cast Thunderbolt. Thunderbolt skill requires you to be close to monster, so you might spam some potion (waste meso)

    when i use thunderbolt (im level 53,. with average equipment) around 6 enemies it does 3 quick hits of somewhere between 500-1000hit points to them all,. with medidation max sometimes i see numbers in there high as 1200 and sometimes higher and critical hits are nice too :D. so anywhere from 1500 to 3000total hitpoints to each enemy and the skill can be spammed effectively ,. i recomend using both buff guards to reduce damage taken,. and make sure u take alot of MP potions where ever u go cuz they can be used up quite quickly with this skill and magic guard,. its not as powerful as a one hit/one enemy skills but take into considaration its speed and the amount of enemies it hits.
