    Default Post-Ascension Guide to The F/P Mage

    Intro
    lol-old picture
    I used to be a level 11x F/P Mage in Scania. I'm still awesome. Currently, I have quit my mage, but I still retain the massive volumes of knowledge of the F/P Mage (or, at least, I'd like to think I do). As such, I have changed this guide from Pre-BB to Post-BB Post Ascension. You're welcome.

    Note: I haven't actually hit 4th job, so this is almost entirely speculation. Feel free to put points into what you think is better. My reasons will be listed at the end.

    Feel free to comment on the 4th job build, since I've not actually reached it on an F/P yet.

    Ascension guide out before Ascension. Always on top of things, eh?

    Didn't have enough time to read all of it but I did skim over it and it looks pretty good so far. Random font size tag on the bottom (above 4th job skill build).

    Oops. Must've deleted the close tag. Will fix.

    You forgot to add the High Wisdom total in the summery.

    Also, what's the advantages to maxing slow? Before Jump and BB I only had 1 pt in slow and never used it except for shiites & giggles...or accidental presses.

    Because Fire Arrow is near-useless, I guess. Though I still would've saved Slow for last and put MP Eater before it.

    Fixed, thanks.

    Some monsters are decently fast, and a large chunk of your damage comes from (Mist) Eruption past 4th job. Slow basically ensures they sit in the cloud and let you attack them without getting hit.
    Fire Arrow, on the other hand, isn't used past 2nd job.
    Note that Slow only costs 10 SP, so even if you didn't max it you'd be stuck at 11 Fire Arrow which doesn't solve anything.

    Also I put Slow before MP Eater so you could use it at Toy Room, since those Jesters are really damn fast.

    Hey! Good job so far. Any updating anytime soon? Just wondering cause the guide has done me well till now, and I really wouldn't want to switch to another one 4th job. Thanks!
