Just like in WoW, the Mage is a damage focused ranged based spell caster. Often dubbed the glass cannon. As a Mage you can choose between fire skills that are focused on doing direct mostly single target damage, and frost skills that include more crowd control. Just like in World of Warcraft, the Mage can only wear cloth and therefore Tailoring is the natural skill to take up. Basically if you love the Pew Pew (doing damage) and don’t mind being brittle (dying a lot) then this is a great class.

Very extensive guide to the talent mage talent trees in Order and Chaos Online. Skyfire Talent Tree Tier One: Shock wave – required points in Skyfire: 0, prerequisite: None Recommendation: 10 This is one of our most reliable AOE spell, can be learned at level 5, instant casting, 2sec cooldown with maxed Burnout. Definitely a must have while leveling, since there are always situations when you have to deal with multiple mobs or running out of spells to finish a mob. Only draw back of this spell is its cost to damage ratio is pretty high, which means if you spam it, you will run out of mana very fast. So, use it only when you have to. Improved fireball – required points: 0, prerequisite: None Recommendation: 6 Fireball is our bread and butter spell, however, due to the low critical damage ratio, these points can be better spent in many other...
Thank you Babagahnoosh (Fire specialization) If you are looking for a real challenge inside the game, then becoming a Fire specced mage is definitely the class for you. Without any experience in MMORPG’s it will be almost impossible to survive. Mages have very low health; the only way to survive is using an energy shield that will absorb 40% of the damage dealt (Percentage increases over each rank). Therefore your mana is your life. Without mana you will die. This guide will help you keep your deaths to a minimum. 1. As stated above, the only way to keep yourself from dying all the time is your shield. Although this shield is not really needed for the levels 1-12 you will need it further on. Never click on your energy shield when it’s in use! If you do, the energy shield goes away when an enemy hits you just once. This is probably...
(credit goes to Player OZZLO for this terrific mage guide) 1. Get into a good kill rotation: You want to spend as much time casting as possible. No point in standing waiting for your global global cooldown on firebolt to come of cooldown. Use this time to cast frostbolt (when you got it) or even basic melee. As time progresses and when you acquire Rock Piercing, your rotation will be: Frostbolt>Firebolt>Rock Piercing>Repeat. You want to maximise your up time (i.e. more time getting xp and loot, less time drinking and waiting for hp/mana to regenerate) so with this in mind, try to conserve your mana when appropriate. An example of this would be to melee and opponent down who is about to die anyway, as opposed to using firebolt (one of your most mana intensive single target spells). 2. Speccing your mage. You get your first talent point at level...
