I hav +9 mage. And I'm expert in building skills of mage. Its true that mages op in War, arena 3*3, 5*5 and dg. Even a +4 mages can do more dmg than bd or ranger in arena. But it also true tht mages can't win against pro healers except Keslerr and Skynete(both hav multiple arena Rewards)
mage is the only class in ws which don't hav proper stun skill. Even u hav 5/5 chains enemies can use all kind of skills. And our Fear skill works like 1/10 times only.
Still mages is more fun than any other class. I love mages. We just need 1 proper Stun skill.
