Heroes of Arkesia,
Today, we continue our exploration into the Classes available in Lost Ark, delving into the Advanced Classes and abilities of the Mage. If you missed last week’s Warrior spotlight, you can check it out here. You can learn about all of the Classes Lost Ark offers in our Intro to Classes article.
Mages are mystical conjurers who tap into the ancient magic of Arkesia to cast deadly spells on evil forces, heal the wounded, and support allies. With two Advanced Classes, you can choose between the healing and support spells offered by the Bard, or call forth ethereal objects and powerful elemental creatures to fight by your side as the Summoner.
A Mage’s presence and influence can always be felt by friend and foe alike as they bolster teammates or turn the tide of battle with powerful spells. You can see the magical spells and abilities of the two Mage Advanced Classes showcased here:
Advanced Classes Breakdown
Virtuosos of the Liane harp, bards can evoke soothing serenades to heal their team—or unleash a chorus of pain on their unfortunate foes. Their attack power is rather low, but their ability to support allies makes them a harmonious part of any team.
ORATORIO: Play the giant harp and sing with angels, inflicting holy damage in an explosion that decreases foes' critical resistance and attacks against you and your party for a while.
STIGMA: Cast a Stigma at the target location. The Stigma attacks foes up to 5 times. As the tempo increases, damage from each attack increases.
RHYTHM BUCKSHOT: Pull the string of the harp to blow up a musical note, inflicting damage and knocking foes away.
HEAVENLY TUNE: Inflict damage on nearby foes and boost attack speed and MP regeneration speed for yourself and nearby party members.
PRELUDE OF STORM: Play a powerful tune to call forth a storm that inflicts damage and stuns foes.
Despite their delicate constitution, Summoners are a force to be reckoned with in any battle. They call forth spirits of the elements to fight for them, and each elemental has their own special skills to help the Summoner shine in every situation.
ANCIENT SPEAR: Concentrate energy and call down a great ancient spear. The spear inflicts damage to foes at the center of impact and in the outer radius, and causes them to be paralyzed.
WATER ELEMENTAL: Summon an elemental creature that attacks foes with water damage for 2s.
BAGRON'S WRATH: Summon quicksand that reduces the move speed of foes within range. After some time, Bagron jumps out of the sand, dealing earth damage to foes at the center of the quicksand and launching them in the air. Bagron then bites foes in the air, dealing earth damage and slamming them down onto the ground. Foes at the periphery of the quicksand take additional earth damage when Bagron appears from and disappears into the ground.
PAURU: Hurl a ball of fire to deal fire damage and summon the fire elemental Pauru. Pauru attacks nearby foes for 15s, inflicting fire damage with its basic attack. Pauru can also be commanded to let out a fiery breath or self-destruct in an explosion that sends surrounding foes flying.
ELECTRICITY RELEASE: Cast a condensed ball of electrical current that inflicts lightning damage before creating an electric field that attacks foes within range with lightning damage for 1s.
