Hey all,

Does anyone have any recommended builds? I'm assuming the builds are roughly the same as the wizzy?

    I've done something odd, i've put 15 stats into vit.
    As i've found im to squishy, the 15 vit is a nice touch for survivability.

    I have no idea how 150 hp actually helped you, but ok~

    Full mag here, as usual.

    i like vit also, and yes hp makes a big difference. however you're only getting +1 to armor and magic resist and 10 hp per vit so dont go too heavy on it.

    anyway my build has been 3 mag 1 vit 1 str until i capped str at 56 ( i think that is a safe value to stop at) and my current vit with gear is 120 i havent looked without gear adds tho. But i did stop putting in vit now and just do 5 mag per level at this point

    Kitty has AA-SB and HA-SB. AA-SB has casual 9mag/1str-build and HA-SB stats put according to gear requirements. Kitty's HA-SB can wear at level scythe and armors, but that's just 'cause Kitty has couple gearsets tailored for HA-casters.

    Every 10 attribute points: 1 goes to strength, 9 to magic.

    I will probably start putting all into magic after level 50.

    After some consideration i want to make my Stormbringer LA but im already almost 90s and buying a reset note before RB feels like a waste. long story short i'll farm LA g16 on my main and give to her when shes 100 and RB to get the stats right.

    My question is what is a good stat build for LA magic class? i know i'll need 104 dex and str for armor and 300 mag for my weapon.

    so would like 2 str 2 dex 1 mag until i can wear armor then all into mag work?
    1 str 1 dex 3 mag feels too slow for stating when im already RB and have g16 set ready to go.
    what about 3 dex 3 str 4 mag every two levels do u think that would work better?

    You don't have much choice about the 1 dex 1 str 3 mag build.

    You need level +4 dex/str to wear at-level LA which caps at 104 for G16 gear. You'll also need level x3 mag to equip an at-level magic weapon with only some exceptions that would use less mag. If you want to use either the weapons or armor faster, you'd have to abuse +stat gear that has no requirements to do so.

    Your best bet is, simply put, to start off statting as pure mag since you already have robes you can use. Then once you have enough for your weapon, dedicate all your stat points in dex until it catches up to str. At that point you just split the points between str/dex evenly.

    Assuming you have no stat boosting gear (kinda not possible with cards, tomes, rings, neck, belt, cape, engraves, and even potentially your helm) you'd be wearing level 100 arcane stuff at level 66 and would catch up on str/dex for LA at 93.... but that's assuming base stats with nothing providing any extra non-vit attributes. In reality, you'll be reaching these points far sooner.

    After that's done, on your second RB you can run as LA from the start since you'll have the gear for it too. At that point you'd just adjust the build based on the bonus stats you have available so you can wear what you want as early as possible.

    i think g16 la on caster is a bit self-nerfing considering the lack of +mag stats on the LA gear. i understand LA caster already is okay with lower mag attack, but everything about SB is mag-based and with r999 and rb, people tend to have absurd primary ability scores. is what you gain by going LA make up for what a pure build gains you these days?

    Nope. Not in the slightest.

    ... but having fun with it is still a thing and as long as the person behind the character can play well the disadvantages aren't as big of a deal.

    Well ya, i think it will be fun to do something different like LA instead of copy and paste my AA veno build pretty much.

    Plus, I won't be getting R9 or do pvp with this toon... at least until she is RB2... because my veno already does decent in NW- the extent of my pvp. thats why i even considered the morai 2nd cast because its pve but it looked like a pain to farm xD

    I ran numbers on teh build calculator also. La build (not considering cards/nuema/primal passive) gives me ~7-8k p def and ~9k mag def. with those others things both of those stats hit ~10k. and hp ~8k also. With AA i would have ~5k p def and ~12k mag def. LA feels more balanced then and in pve u encounter much more physical attacks than magic i think.
    as for damage, my mag atk is only ~2k less than if i had Full AA. Not such a huge nerf imo.

    I found myself liking the LA concept but had to put it into calc to see if i liked the possibilities

    this is what i came up with

    (this is basically a magic version of a BM (LA)

    I used the 2nd cast warsoul glaive because it was most similar in stats/damage

    http://pwcalc.com/503eca76cf5fc3ec

    as you can see it will require high refines and cards and RB1/2 with good points 101 or higher and of course all the primal passives will make this a heavy hitter

    also i played with putting in both elemental necky and it drops the pdef but with "reaper" makes it moot -

    but yeah thinking it wouldnt be too crazy and hella tanky even with G16 LA

    - this also omits the "reaper mode" where we get higher Pdef making this very nice to play least in my opinion,

    not a possibility if going R9,99,999 but still great thought imo

    i dont want to be a glass cannon and yet I want my opponents to feel my power

    Other proposition: get a credit card and buy R999, so then you will be able to play without additional efforts b:laugh

    My stormbringer is using my traditional 50 vit, 54 str, rest on mag build. I use this on the first stage (before reawakening) to get the hand of the class. 450 extra HP mean I can get a couple more hits o runs some class tests.

    After RA, going pure of course.
