    Isnt that because dr was so popular that people focused on melee gear and they're sticking with it in hopes that it will return? Archers had their glory day, mages' dominance will come soon when XLgames sees the untapped potential to make people regrade a mage set.

    Mage is not OP and you don't play as mage too.
    Once upon a time, a warborn was born in Prophecy and the warborn decided to play in Sirothe to gear up by farming gold in a safe,peaceful with lot's of sea salt environment

    Mages are only considered OP to people that have no gear or have build the character so squishy that they can't handle the incomming attacks. On the other side Mages are complaing that have built their characters very squishy and have low stats in Resiliance, Toughnes, pdef and Hp. The current situation of mage is "okay " not too good not too bad. But the system is changing very soon. It will be again time for aoe mages to shine with the release of the new skill tree Hatred /Abyssal hint word "Swordfall".

    And no mages are not bad either and the gear is NOT cheaper for mages. Its much harder to get proper gear that is usefull compared to Melee. Since sadly the population WAS 90% leather. And not its slowly shifting towards Leather plate. Getting legendary parts on cloth was for the longest time one of the tasks which could be compared unlikely due to people only regrading when they quit. Most of my parts are from quitters that blew up their mage things since they couldnt handle patches.

    But what i can tell everyone in this thread, dont over panic and dont do drastic things. The whole combat system is getting reworked slowly "AGAIN" and a lot of things will change.

    To mention one of your conderns, Mana flurry will not reduce your pdef anymore next update
    And also the whole new tree is full magic damage based with a lot of CC/mobility and dmg skills.

    As bonus i will link you a "common" mage build from Korea if you want any others i am willing to teach how to look things up in the korean website.

    The reason why you dont see a lot of Koreans using 2h is the difference in Gearscore. Most people that use it are not as geared to even appear on the lists. And they never really had the Glasscannon meta like we did have /do have on certain classes. The Korean raids are much longer since people barely die. Meanwhile EU raids (cant talk about NA but they are much tankier than EU for sure) take few seconds which makes the fights rather quick due to High dmg output with low hp /lower HP.

    Darsy, I'm really interested in seeing what builds mages are using in Korea with the new Abysal skill tree, would you be able to show how you look these up?

    Thanks!

    https://archeage.xlgames.com/statistics/jobs
    (Sorry for having to use google shortner but the forum does not allow to post the proper link in here...)

    On this website you can see the people with the "CURRENTLY " selected Class and their "Currently" equipped gear. But now how does it exactly work ?
    Its quite simple for people that have learned how to get infos out of the former archeage database which is now archeage codex. We have to get the proper class name to get what we need but where do we get that from?!? No clue, oh wait there is a archeage calculator on the same website.


    On the next step you will have to select the players on the servers. After typing in the class it will show you the "gearscore rankings" from the selected server. You have to left click one of them and you will be forwarded towards the character profile which includes their gear, skillset and the proficiencies they have.

    ___
    For Lazy people some classes :
    파괴의 현 = spellsinger
    이단 심문관= sorc / abyssal/shadowplay
    지략가= sorc/occult/abyssal
    연금술사= songcraft/sorc/abyssal

    everyone is the same as those who are not magicians, the magician is pro etc. you just have to watch the videos pvp dr, or an archer, blade lancer, go hit the wizards if they see someone has a leather or plate set pass the van the one of tele soon the few videos, you put of the magicians, they are magician hechatos, with a legendary set t7 or mystic weapons or erenor to put a magician with normal equipment aver how many combats wins
    before 3.5 if you could say it was pro the magician, almost with any weapon towards damage, but this patch 4.0 weapon legendary t7, you do not do almost half damage before it is as they say someone carry a weapon 2 hands 2 blows die before doing anything
    innocent people you only see what interests you, or that they played babes, 14 and 16 years
