DISCLAIMER

Expensive.
This guide is a work in progress -- everything you see here can be replaced/adjusted depending on game updates.
This guide is based on my knowledge about the game, experience, opinion, and preference.
This is NOT a newbie guide. If you are starting from scratch, this guide is not for you. 
This article is just a guide. It's up to you if you will follow everything.
There may be errors and/or inaccuracies in this guide. Feel free to correct me thru the comment section.
I'll try to keep this guide up to date as long as I still play the game.

 

Overview:

  • Fire build
    • Crimson Arrow & Rock Down - CA as your main damage skill. RD is just like your add-on/extension.
    • Crimson Rock
  • Chain Lightning build

 

Pending:

  • SVS build
  • Mid-tier-ish setup for the three

BiS gears

Middle headgear: Victorious Wing Ears [ACD-3%, ACD-3%]
Lower headgear: Young Leaf of World Tree [Spl, MATK, Int] 
Armor:  Automatic Armor B-type [2x Magic Power, ACD]
Weapon: Aeon Staff-LT
Shield: N/A
Garment: Convertible Magical Wing
Shoes: Hero Boots-LT [Wise, Spell, Int/Agi5]

Shadow sets: Full Tempest Shadow set, True Gemstone Shadow set, Magical Spell Shadow set, Separate Reload Shadow Shield
Costume stones: Archbishop stone (Upper and Lower), Magic Power Stone (Middle), Arch Bishop Stone I/II (Garment), Reload Stone (Dual)

 

Other enchantments

Weapon: 

  1. ACD
  2. MATK against Normal/Boss monsters. Normal > Boss. IMO

Shadows: A mixture of MATK%, ASPD, and/or VCT reduction.

 

Alternatives for BiS gears

Upper headgear: Bacsojin Doll Hat-LT
Lower headgear: Arch Angeling Balloon [MATK]
Shadow sets: Clever Shadow set

 

BiS cards

Upper headgear: Fenrir Card
Middle headgear: Kiel D-01 Card 
Armor:  Realized Amdarais Card, Nightmare Amon Ra Card, Greater Red Pepper Card
Weapon: 1x Regenschirm Scientist Card and 1x Mutated White Knight Card
Shield: N/A
Garment: Deep Sea Witch Card
Shoes: Fallen Bishop Card, The One Card, Death Witch Card, Azure Princess Card
Accessories: 2x Mavka Cards

 

NOTE

  • Equipping Bacsojin Doll Hat-LT provides mediocre damage but beats out Thanos Magic Helmet-LT when it procs. Moderate damage boost when proc'd.
  • Bacsojin Doll Hat-LT proc rate is good but not excellent. However, it procs frequently when hitting multiple targets at the same time.
  • Fenrir Card can be replaced with either Lichtern Red Card, Mutant Coelacanth Card, or another Kiel D-01 Card.
  • No need for ACD module in your Automatic Armor if you rock 2x Kiel D-01 Cards. Get a different module.
  • If you need additional ACD reduction and ASPD, use Separate Reload Shadow Shield and keep the Magical Spell Shadow Weapon.
  • You can either use Arch Bishop Stone I or II (Garment) stone. Test them both to see which between the two will give you better damage. In my case, II is better, a slight boost in damage compared to I.
  • I never had Survival Circlet-LT nor Beast's Leather Shoes. Thanos Magic Helmet-LT and Hero Boots-LT look better IMO (end game).
  • Utilize /q2 command. 
  • Close your skill bar - noticeable difference when spamming CA&RD. Try it yourself to see.
  • Remember to close again your skill bar whenever you change map or use fly wings. Tedious work but definitely worth the effort.
  • If you do not see an item/card that isn't listed/mentioned here, that means it's either I do not recommend it or have forgotten about it.

 

Sample ACD reduction setup (more than the required minimum):

10% VWE
15% Convertible Magic
30% Kiel Card
16% Automatic Armor
5% Aeon Staff-LT (from enchantment)
5% Hero Boots-LT
10% Separate Reload Shadow
5% Reload Dual

Total: 96%

Note

  • For Automatic Armor enchantments, Shadowspell is recommended since you already have a ton of Crimson Rock modifiers from Thanos Two-Handed Staff-AD and Thanos Magic Helmet-LT combo. If you aren't wearing these two, that's the only time you go for Crimson Strain modules instead of Shadowspell.
  • Thanos Two-Handed Staff-AD is easy and not so expensive to craft. Ungraded is acceptable.

  • FBH card is not expensive

Never had this much fun playing mage class for the first time. Thank you for the guide, I had to try it.

I leveled my booster to 100 by killing: Ant Egg until Firebolt skill @10. Then Sandman, Sleeper, Drosera and Muscipular..

Spamming Firebolt and Meteor Storm left and right got me there quick. Went to lasa_dun03 until I maxed out Crimson Rock !!

Wreaked havoc at ba_bath until level 150 using Reading Spellbook x2 --> Teleport --> Release onto mobs. Rinse / Repeat.

You can cut short "Read time" with Infinite Fly wing, skill won't get cancelled, this helped a lot with leveling.
