I kill every osan on crom for the most part as an ice mage, that dosent mean that ice resistance is lower tho haha. I just simply know how to max my dps potential.

I also kill most 200 smolach, spider, skain, and occasionally gara so its not because of resist lol.

Also consider what gear you have available. A well geared ice mage is better then a poorly geared fire. On all 3 of the servers im on there is many more fire mages especially at lower levels, which leaves an abundance of ice gear in circulation. Outside of a dom clan it it harder to find quality gear and it dosent come down to just pure leveling or dps.

All frozen bosses except pyrus have equal resist (pyrus favors ice) and all dl bosses have equal resist so any resistance argument in this case is invalid.

Also mage locking is extremely ineffective even with fb. Without lures mages dmg is worthless lol and a ph will be dead before your lure casts in most cases.

Shards has a cast Time if the skill isn’t instant you will rarely get it in before the kill and never in before the lock (phs) on 5* shards may get one hit in but then again that about 2 bolt hits and shards rarely does 2x the damage this is also assuming you get your lure on or your damage will be insufficient. 6* it will even out just depends on your gear and build (and your comp)
