Overview

Warlock, different from it's previous Classes, is way more versatile. It's equipped with Tetra Vortex that deals huge amount of damage to a single target, Comet a neutral elemental skill that can wipe an entire mob of monsters and variations of debuffs from slowing down enemy's move speed and cast speed to totally disabling them for a few seconds.

Build

Disclaimer: This build is very basic and simple, no calculation on stat bonus and equipment bonus whatsoever, it's made this way so that it's faster for me to input my status since I change my build a lot for PVP/WOE/PVE purposes.

Status

Basic Build

STR: 1~65

AGI: 1~90

VIT: 1~90

INT: 120

DEX: 120~130

LUK: 35~90

130 DEX sounds extreme and probably a waste of skill points, but for those who want to get 0 variable cast easily without spending too much resources on gears and food, this is perfect, it's not like you need AGI and STR that much. However, ASPD can help a little if you want to spam Chain Lightning by Reading Spell Book. You can reduce DEX and allocate the status points to LUK for more MATK or STR for more weight limit if you want to maximize the use of Reading Spell Book, which is pretty extreme build because you will be very dependent on this skill.

Reading Spell Book

Reading Spell Book is very useful, it memorizes spells and allows you to Release them without casting time. However, released spells won't be affected by Amplification since the Release will consume the effect. If you try to read book of a skill that you don't have, it will fail and you will be put under Sleep state.

Skill Books

You can buy these skill books from Lea in Geffen Mage Guild after talking to Magic Book Master except Tetra Vortex and Comet Book that you have to obtain from Ultimate Spellbooks Quest.

Mind Slot

The amount of skills you can store is based on your mind slot, which is (FreezingSpell_Lv × 4) + (BaseLv ÷ 10) + (Base INT ÷ 10), so let's say you are max level with 120 INT and level 5 Freezing Spell skill, your mind slot is 49,5.

Fixed And Variable Cast

There are 2 different type of casting time; fixed and variable cast time.

Fixed Cast

Fixed cast time introduced during Renewal and it did make huge impact especially for Mage class. If back then you can remove cast time with 150 DEX, now it's no longer the case because fixed cast time doesn't get affected by your status. However, it is possible to reduce cast time to 0 with fixed cast time reduction from skills like Radius, Sacrament and equipment like Temporal DEX Boot, Fenrir card, etc.

It is important to know that while duration based reductions stack, percentage based reductions do not stack, if you have more than one percentage reduction gears or buffs, only the biggest one applies. For example, if you have level 3 Radius and you wear a headgear with Fenrir card (70% reduction), only the Fenrir card takes effect since it's the biggest one.

The best set to reduce fixed time for now:

  • Fenrir Card (70%)
  • Foxtail (0.1 sec)
  • Bellum Arc Wand - PVP/WOE only (0.2 sec)
  • Temporal DEX Boot (0.5 sec)
  • 3x Pluto Gemstone enchant (0.2 sec)

Variable Cast

Variable cast can be reduced using DEX and INT. You need (DEX x 2) + INT = 530 to achieve 0 variable cast. Although there are plenty of equipment and cards that give variable cast reduction, it is better if you use mainly your status to reduce your variable cast since percentage based reduction reduces the cast AFTER it is reduced by your status.
