    Mage 7th Astral (LvL 70) - Pros And Cons

    Hello,

    i am wondering what astral i should get as a mage ones i become 70 (will be lvling to 70 later today),

    i will get my LD in 2-3 days so i will lvl up to 70,
    i am EWD mage so no need the slot for 2x critical astrals etc,

    my current astrals are:

    red magic attack lvl 7
    red pdef lvl 6
    red mdef lvl 6
    red block lvl 6
    yellow WD lvl 8
    yellow godness blessing lvl 7

    side astrals -
    red critical lvl 6
    yellow determination lvl 6 (on his way to 7)
    red hp lvl 4
    yellow guardian angel lvl 5
    yellow illusion lvl 5


    how what i should get as a 7th astral?

    the options are

    Guardian Angel Vs HP vs illusion

    Guardian Angel - Will Help Against Archers and Critical Mages + Knights.

    HP - Will Boost my HP (but my current HP is at about 70k - will i need it higher) >> i think thats the worst astral.

    illusion - if it would trigger as the rate it said it is >> it would be really great astral but atm it looks to me it is never working, atleath when i tested it.

    so what do u think would be better?

    atm i tend to use GA or illusion,

    any advice will be appreciated,

    thanks.

    Im lv75 and have damnation maxed for MP runs (lych NM) and it works like a charm, i go double archer knight + me usually and +10% dmg bonus to the whole group
    for 5 turns is quite a big jump, for bosses 1 and 3 the options are bolt/rof or bolt/damna (for me) and the second option seems to work better overall, i love a bit of
    damage myself (quite gets compensated by just awakening when heals arent needed) and the rest can dish out more dmg.

    It's been wonderful for me, personally.
    I dont see this dodge dmg to 1 often still...
    But if for u this work nice, super each one have own preferences, i prefere astro which give me profit all time,not few times per day and usualy not when i need it at most xD

In order to compensate for that 8k dmg you just lost there you need to do 80k dmg in 3 turns ...

    Lower lvls it CAN be good. I remember I used it anyways... back in the days
    It was great back before people had L60 PvE Gear. It would do as much damage as Thunderer in a Mage v. Mage battle. Now, it's meh at best. The only reason to take 2 ranks in it is to open up Delphic Hell Frenzy to max. That's a nice power in group arena when you can fuel it w/ a Rage Rune and get off a BL as well.

    10% for 5 turns, 5 rage reduce from qte so 25 rage. Ty for the insight. I guess I'll end up with same skills in both trees now lol

    Ohh and I am lvl 60 zeref, but lucky me I can already do moon nm after I rushed to this level without any camping. Long live the sylphs that made all of this possible
    And that vip chests that happened to be implemented all of a sudden fasten the process even more. Can;t wait for a pve set, shall be my first and I know I'll love it lol

    And in team arena before so many aoes doesn;t seem that bad either. So can anyone details why it is so bad?and what should I choose instead?
    isnt damnation 30 rage and +30% dmg? o.O and like red sayd lower levels its good higher levels meh so dont bother with it now that you 63 lol
