Overview

Sage.jpg

Sages are a PvP-oriented class with the role of caster/anti-Mage. They do not have the offensive abilities of a Wizard, but are a slightly buffed version of Mage with their Free Casting. Sages shine in their defensive abilities, with many builds centered around Land Protector. Dispell is also a popular and sought-after spell which is useful for removing buffs from the enemy. Many of their skills can only realistically be used in PvP, making PvM quite difficult, particularly for VIT/DEX builds that have difficulty solo leveling. Battle sages are a 'for fun' build which can become a powerful leveling build with the recent buffs to Auto Spell and the right gear.

Job Change Guide

See Sage Job Change Guide for detailed information.

Changing into a Sage from a Mage requires the player to complete a number of tasks:

  • Item Collection
  • Written Test
  • Battle Test
  • Thesis Composition

After completing these tests, the player will be transformed into a Sage. This takes place in Geffen.

Guides

Check the Magician Guild section of the forums for Sage guides, made by the community for the community.

Equipment

General Equipment Recommendations

Main article: Equipment

The Equipment article lists some general all purpose equipment that is useful through the PVM phase and also for endgame use as well.

Weapons

After considering what requirement skills have (some skills can only be used with certain weapon types), the Weapon Search tool within the iRO Wiki DB site is very helpful. Generally, for physical classes (both melee and ranged), something with high ATK is best. For magic classes, something with high MATK is best.

Book

1564.png Encyclopedia [2]

Knife

1223.png Fortune Sword
1237.png Grimtooth
1228.png Combat Knife
1242.png Dagger of Counter
VIT/DEX Sages can use Fortune Swords, Grimtooths, or Combat Knives for defensive purposes.
Battlesages can use Dagger of Counter for crits.

Rod

1611.png Arc Wand

This easy to get item is the best weapon a Sage has access to until rebirth. It offers the highest mAtk of all non-trans staffs and is only 1-handed so the Sage can also wear a shield with it for damage reduction.

Headgear

Top

5027.png Mage Hat
All around useful headgear for mage classes. Gives 2 INT and increases SP by 150.

Bottom

Shield

Don't bother with the Mage-class Card combo (Parasite), just go for a racial card.

  • Guard/Memory Book
    Slotted memory book is very useful for caster sages, it has the same function as a guard with an additional +1 INT. Memory Book is also part of the Pocket Watch set.

Accessory

  • Clip
    Clips are good for utility cards, for example Creamy, Phen and Vitata. It is almost essential to get these cards, otherwise it will be significantly harder to level. Once the player reaches level 90 alternatively they can be slotted into Gloves/Rosaries for a small boost in stats and to make switching easier.
