Revo-Classic Sage Guide



Sage are known to be mage on steroids. They may not have the magical power of wizards, but they're sure that their target gets eliminated. How, you say? They have free casting which enables them to move or attack while casting a spell, an endow element, a skill that dispell enemy's buff, and tons of bolt damage.

• Get your first few skill points by leveling up on this map. Target geographers with firebolt. Keep your distance to avoid getting attacked.
• Stay away from punk, harpy, and deviling.
• Use firewall against Argiopes then finish them with firebolt
If you're taking it easy and don't want to spend on potions, you can start with ayothaya for easy job exp. Once you have your offensive skills, you can hunt at byalan then go to deeper levels as you get stronger. • At mid level, you can start hunting high orcs.
• High orcs are weak to water element.
• Minorous are weak ice to ice. Be careful with their skill hammerfall
• You can also hunt alarms if you are well equipped.

• Wear fire armor (pasana card)
• Use ice weapon for max damage
Once you're approaching high level, you can go to GH. this map offers lots of leveling spots for different classes. As a Sage be sure that you can kill enemies fast enough since monsters here deal high damage, can mob you, and spawns quickly. Another famous spot for high levels is the turtle dungeon. Monster density here is high, so you don't have to worry about running out of monsters to kill. Be sure that you can kill mobs faster than they spawn. Go to the next levels for more exp and monsters. • Anubis is your main target here, the exp you can get from a single anubis is 28,000 base exp and 22,000 job exp. This exp is incredibly high, so don't pass up on this one.
• Be sure to have bathory/evil druid armor, to negate dark soul strike.
• You can also enter the portal on the center if you want to hunt Pasanas.
