~The simple beginner Psychic guide by Yzdrazil~

Hi and welcome to my guide about the Psychic class in PWI. The main task by this guide is to help new players get started with their Psychic.

Note: This guide will never be complete. There are so much info about a Psy, so much to add. If you find there is something to add or somthing who is wrong, then comment in the section below thanks b:pleased

Contents:
1. Stats, builds, armor paths etc.
2. Skills, what to aim to max, what to wait with to max. (a few skill combos added)
3. Demon/Sage
4. What more is needed, comment about it!


STATS


There are a few builds to choose from, some for more survivalbility some for more mag. atk damage. These will be enlisted below:

Pure magic (Recommended for high damage): 1 str, 9 mag per two levels or 1 str and 4 mag every even level and 5 mag every odd level. You use arcane armor for this build. (Note: A Psychics weapon is a Sphere! And nothing else! Maybe a bow for certain quests, BUT you always use a Sphere!)

Vit and mag build (I do this): 1str 1/2 vit and 9/8 mag every two levels. This gives you more HP and a little more survivability but I recommend to put focus to the mag. There is sockets, charms, potions, refining and shards to increase your HP and defenses. You could cap your vit to lvl 50 then go full mag.

Heavy armor: I've heard of Psychics being successful with this build, but I don't have any info about this. With Heavy armour build you use heavy armour to boost your defence, BUT you will decrease your damage alot!

SKILLS


I wont go deeply into the skills, you can find info about them by moving your cursor above them in the skill section (CTRL + R) ingame. I will just tell you what to max and what to wait with.

You can also find detailed information about all classes skills at: http://ecatomb.net/skillpwi.php

Max as fast as possible: Aqua Impact, Spirit Blast, Black Voodoo, White Voodoo(Up to lvl 3, until you want the demon/sage version or for FC runs at higher levels), Bubble of Life, Landslide, Glacial Shards, Sandburst Blast, Aqua Spirit, Earthen Spirit, Earth Vector.

2nd proirity: Torrent, Sand Trap, Aqua Cannon, Red Tide, Empowered Vigor, Essential Sutra.

Leftover Spirit: Soul of Vengeance (SoV), Soul of Silence (SoS), Tide Form, Veil of Shadow.

Skill combos:

Make sure you're buffed when you kill monsters in PvE: Black Voodoo if you can kill them fast enough or White Voodoo if you are too weak, I highly recommend using Black Voodoo when grinding (killing monsters).

When PvE killing mobs: Aqua Impact -> Spirit Blast -> If mob comes close enough do Landslide to avoid damage -> Aqua Impact -> Sprits Blast -> And keep going that way.

Another PvE combo in higher levels: Aqua Impact -> Glacial Shards -> Sandburst Blast -> Aqua Impact -> Sandburst Blast/Spirit Blast

When doing BH and you highly want to avoid aggro: White Voodo(well make sure it's on ^^) -> Sandburst Blast(for decreasing targets accuracy) -> Aqua Impact -> Spirit Blast -> and repeat...
Demon/Sage

I'm not in those levels yet, BUT I can share the information I've recieved by others:

Demon: More towards PK/PvP
Sage: More towards PvE

So basically, if you want to be a PvP psychic you should choose the Demon path.
But if you like PvE more then Sage path is for you!

A really good site to check out the Demon/Sage skill additions is: http://ecatomb.net/skillpwi.php where you can find all skill info about all classes b:pleased

    I believe this guide was meant for less intelligent players out there, kind of from one player to his brethren. So in that sense it has no place among other guides and has it's own special role.

    I'm not sure if it has been added to the dictionaries yet, but it's called attention w****. Anyway, on to the serious side of things, have you been taking notes from this guide? So remember, go demon for pvp because sage sucks and don't forget to use the awesome combos mentioned in the guide. Ok seriously, this guide has the potential to be comedy gold, I can't wait to see what stupidity will next come out of it :D

    All us Sage Psy suck at PVP? b:cry
    I've been so wrong all this time, finally I see the (evil) light!
    So basically, if you want to be a PvP psychic you should choose the Semon path

    giggity.

    Aww, I was looking forward to more of your headless copy pasting, it was really informative and helped me learn a lot about psys.
