I'm still only 128 and using this guide has helped but with game development over the years can anything be changed?
Do people still use incinerate?


Thanks.

This guide is still very new.
I don't suggest using incinerate until 160+ when you will be doing dl bosses. I used it on my 155 for the spider/priest/king dl bosses and used it to outdps people in full edl who were there.

Recently went through my pics and lost it sadly.... I deleted majority of my pics. Only ch pics I have left are me solo locking aggy and our mord kill

I wouldn't use incin for locking. Incin sucks for locking because it is DOT. I only use incin as my 4th dps skill.
I would recommend iceshard for a locking build. Also it is nice to have an ice skill as a firemage for bosses that heavily resist fire damage.

I agree. I did not use it for locking, it was more for good dps on 6*dl, aggy, and legas

Hi thank you very much for the replies, I'm still only 128 with 30 max on my fire skills.
I don't use ICE at the moment do you think I should put into ice for a while or continue with fire (including incinerate) until maxed then start with ice?

Thank you.

Until you actually start bossing,
Max fire attun
Fire storm
Fire bolt
Fire lure
Extras in energy shield.
At 150 I suggest you stop leveling and get your gear up ASAP. I was able to hit nearly 15k crits at level 150, and, although I never hit this, I believe the combined power of my fire attun and storm could have hit much higher, maybe even 20k. Level 39 firestorm, 50 fire attun, and 45 bolt, 34 incinerate-
Had I been level 180, I could have easily gotten all to level 50 with my ring and bracelet slots.

I believe you should expand on what gears to look out for,that aspect isn't mentioned properly.
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.

And I'm not even going into the Proteus kills coz its not even a legit way of getting kills. A ranger or rogue always dominates prot kills.

Overall I think you should suggest to sticky this seeing you put a good amount of effort into it and is listed neatly.

PS: Equip a void book or gele wand after using the necro wand for storm crit record, you shouldn't use the necro one after casting its skill.

Not all somewhat new ppl are just able to gear up and hit those stats u listed. I mean a plus 5 or higher silverweb bolt or aggy bolt ring or good tier storm rings can be 200-500k ea on arawn. A plus 5/5 silverweb bolt shards misc i have seen multiple ppl turn down a mil for. And then theres the ammy which would also be a bit expensive. And even then if your in a good clan they wont have alot of top notch gear lying around, most likely already been claimed by someone else. This is just from my experience only at least. Anyways i just suggest to keep lvling, join a good active clan and help with bosses. Eventually the gear will come

So far all of the advice does sound good, as for getting gear yes as a new player I do not have the coins to buy all of that.

My gear was from bossing. If you do a lot of frozen and faerieland bosses you will eventually get +5 bolt and incinerate Rings, and at 180 I believe you can get a +10 attun ring from tower.

There are also bracelets from the Yule event that add pretty points to attun, those combined with a +5 and 4 attun ring got me to level 50 attun, but if I had the 150 versions I could have had level 50 attun and it would free up both ring slots
The same Yule event also had firestorm rings that added focus also I believe. I used one of those to level my storm.
All the gear I mentioned can be earned for free in the span of ~3 months easily, and way sooner if you decide to buy out some of the items from AH
