so your saying mana weapons are useless tools in this game?
im not sure how you are utilizing the mana bow but triple lock is great in war for our team, also playing as a Red mage you have to automatically go on defense as soon as you starts getting attacked by a mana weapon whether it be a mana gaunt or a mana bow or your mana barrier will drop and your become "EZ". Now with bm on the other hand this isnt true due to mana rebirth but...weapons like a crow stinger and the vast staff are amazing weapons against bms, and weapons like the g3 kata or a g3 vast staff are great choice of weapons when fighting RMs
what im trying to say here every class has some kind of skill or tool it can equip or use that when used correctly can do you and your team wonders against mages in a pvp situation. a mage without mana barrier is a free kill basically.look at how slow a bm is and how bad it is at farming, they suck for pve. Blue mages have always been very strong in pvp in every version of TB i have played and to be honest they were even stronger in the other 2 versions ive played.i think maybe the only real change that should get looked at is making...
mana rebirth = to mana saver and possibly look at making marv pots into a percent pot based on the 40/60 ration of MB and make them only usable for the mage class. ive also suggested making desaus charms hosan charms percentage based instead of set number
i think mages should get some adjusting but i dont think this is the way, with what your proposing will destroy the mage class.
