As the creator of this build, I believe it should represent my values. That is the reason why I have not included Firestorm to the spell list. The server is loaded with players that rely on the spell for easy victories that do not reflect bravery or skill, an example of this would be those who have used the Running Firestorm. This build is designed to prove proficiency with magic regardless of distance and to convert magicians into fully offensive characters.
|Gameplay tips and progression||
The Beast's Master is a build designed solely for spell and miracle casting. It is by no means a build used as a " Battle Mage ". The physical aspects of the build are present for support or last resort scenarios. It is important to notice that levels should be raised evenly for both Magic and Faith so that the Talisman of Beasts out damages the Insanity Catalyst. This build is probably one of the most well balanced of it's class due to the fact that the common lack of magic defense on mages is addressed in great part by it's very nature. The end result of this path is an agile caster able to withstand magical damage from other mages without losing the edge in battle after a single attack and fully capable of dispatching several melee attackers by sheer force or deceit.
** Switch to Talisman of God ( Recommended only for PvE ) for a crushing God's Wrath.
