To be an excellent magician, your stats and skills should be as follows:
STR: As low as possible DEX: As low as possible INT: Everything that does not go into LUK LUK: 3+ your level at levels x0, x2, x5, and x8 Skills: Max Bolt, Magic Armor, Magic Guard, Improving MP Recovery. Put every other SP into Magic Claw.
Have the following starting stats:
STR: 4 DEX: 6 INT: 7 or 8 LUK: 7 or 8 Note: Get your LUK to 15 by level 8, your DEX to 15 and your INT takes everything else. Having a high DEX lets you be more accurate. LUK lets you wield armor, and INT is for power. For spells, use the following order to maximize and only focus on them:
Magic Claw (very important if you want to hit 200s by level 15 like warriors) Improving Max MP Mage Bolt Magic Guard Note: Put left overs to MP Recovery, Happy MS experience.
