No rogue should outdps a well geared mage. Only one rogue on all of arawn can out dps me, but james is a god so won't even go there. prot nerfs rogues bad with its aoe anti haste skill. But I have gotten some legit kills, as in no playing around with lock group. our best ranger Ventius was out for a week or two so I was able to sneak in my 1st-4th kills during that week.
On proteus assuming its my fire lure, I hit 2.3-2.6k, with my highest on prot crit hit being 5.8k i think, usually not paying attention to my damage tho,, thats the highest I have picked up on.
Getting prot kills is definitely a challange, but its a fun one :-)
The other bosses (mordy, necro, gele) are not really possible though. I tried for a necro kill once, got all of our dps to not haste, Ventius still got the kill :/

A hellfire neck n emberdrake charm is best combo out there but we both know how rare the charms are so should give alternatives like osan neck+ hellfire charms and ofc skain/gara mix sets. Especially shrive set since it has boost to both ice n fire magic where usually a fire mage doesn't have an ice magic gear, it wud help on neutral bosses by boosting shards n blast(ik some fire mages having all 4 skills and inc). Some mages prefer more endurance setups with perceptor ammy and spider charms, both good at respective levels for levelling.
Thank you for the suggestion! Will work on improving this section :-) . I just started to level a new mage on Herne and have started to notice that I need to add some stuff to this guide.

A sticky would be nice, but I think I have a little more work to do for the guide before it is on par with Armo and fury's guides.

True, I just didn't feel like having to wait for the wand skill to recool down every time.

Although as a mage you can invest in the gear Loco outlined you don't need to spend a whole lot of gold to compete with some of the other mages at your level range. Something that a lot of people overlook is build matters more than gear
With a mage this may seem kind of silly because there is focus, vitality, and damage skills, not a lot of a challange. But this is what makes mages so challenging, is that it is the small stuff, like timing when you use what skill, when do you lure, making sure your incin is the one on boss, small things like this that determine which mage gets the kill.
If you are tight on gold I would suggest buying energy sigils. Lux is alright, and the rings that you can buy from players are alright, but sigils are an item that you can carry through for the entire time you play, unlike all the other items.
Loco cola wrote:Not supposed to buy it. Just work on frozen/faerieland bosses and use celticheroes.info to find the locations of the Yule bosses that drop the firestorm rings and fireattun bracelets. You can also take it a step further and continuely check paradai for the chance of getting i believe +5 firestorm necky with focus and fire magic.
If you're in a good clan at 180, you can also equip mord and hrung gear and possibly a royal necro bracelet if your clan can get it, not to mention the silverweb charm of elements you can get by killing legacys
Loco pointed out some good points as well, that going solo as a mage is a very boring route. The best way to be on top is to join a top clan. You don't have to, but it does help a lot.
