The Mage and the Wizard have been able to tap into mystical and elemental magic but the real power is now fully realized in the spells mastered by the High Wizard. Only a fool would dare challenge the awesome might of a High Wizard's power head on!

A High Wizard has much more power than a regular Wizard, and at a much earlier level as well. Unlike the Wizard, it has Mystical Amplification, which will give 50% more MATK on the next offensive magic skill to be cast. This grants a High Wizard a lot more power early on, and has about equal the strength of a level 99 Wizard in their early 80's, maybe even a little earlier. With that skill, they can level in Magma Dungeon immediately with Priest without worry of having too little MATK.

Ganbantein, and Gravitational Field prove to be very useful in WoE situations, whereas if there's too many of a certain element going on, or the precast breakers seem to be getting in, you can use Gravitational Field to get much more damage than casting any of your other spells, since the damage cannot be negated, and always does the same amount.

Ganbantein also has other uses in WoE. It can cancel many different spells that are cast on the ground. Such spells include Pneuma, Safety Wall, Battle Chant, and Warp Portal. It rips holes in the Sage class' ground spells as well, so it's good for stopping a Sage or Scholar from getting their Magnetic Earth to work as they desired it to.

Napalm Vulcan has a 25% chance of cursing at max level, and has 5 levels. Very good for cursing opponents in precasts, or just to buy time in general to help some killers get to the tanks in time to stop them, since it has splash damage.

Soul Drain allows the player to increase current Max SP by 20%, and every time a target is killed (monster) with a single target spell, player will restore SP equal to a certain percentage of that monster's SP. This basically allows the class to have infinite SP stacked on to the High Wizard's already really fast SP recovery rate.

Stave Crasher is a very promising skill. This skill does a physical attack based on the High Wizard's MATK. The higher the MATK, the more damage. Since it counts as a physical attack, card effects and any other effects that come from doing physical attacks will work with this skill. You can pass on status effects, divest people in the near future, break their equipment, etc. Definitely a nice skill to have.

Job Change Guide

High Wizard classchange 0.gif

To become a High Wizard, you must find a book called 'the Book of Ymir' in 'Sage Castle', Juno. The book will lead you to Valhalla so you can change your job through the High Wizard Job NPC. Also you must reach Job Level 50 as a Transcendent 1st class character.

Trans classchange 1.gif Trans classchange 2.gif
1. 'Sage Castle' is located at 11 o'clock direction (yuno 88,320) in Juno. 2. 'Book of Ymir' is located inside a room behind an NPC called 'Metheus Sylphe' (yuno_in02 88,164).

3. 'Book of Ymir' (yuno_in02 94,206) will teleport you to Valhalla. 4. Find and talk to the Job NPC suited to your 2nd class.


See Warlock Builds for build strategies to work towards. See Wizard Builds for leveling strategies for just the High Wizard leveling stages. Leveling a High Wizard is similar to a regular pre-trans Wizard, but with a few new skill additions.

New Skills Overview:

Mystical Amplification.png Mystical Amplification: This is a must have, as it drastically increases damage output.

Soul Drain.png Soul Drain: This skill is useful to have for soloing without a Priest to use Magnificat. Although SP is generally not a problem for Wizard classes, it iss still worth the investment in points.

Ganbantein.png Ganbantein: Mostly only used in WoE as a Warlock, and even then it's debatable how useful this skill is. Generally not recommended to acquire this skill.

Napalm Vulcan.png Napalm Vulcan: Mostly a "for-fun" skill. The damage is low, but it has a chance of slowing down a single targetted enemy.

Gravitational Field.png Gravitational Field: A small AoE, but with the right gears, this skill can deal massive damage.

Stave Crasher.png Stave Crasher: Generally not effective.


Eden Group Equipments Quests

Main article: Eden Group Equipments Quests

Most transcendent characters will have already completed some Eden Equipment quests already and can reuse the equipment. If the character has not done the quest yet, they can do it as a transcendent character as well. The Staff is a good weapon and generally a good choice for a Wizard and their future classes' use.

General Equipment Recommendations

Main article: Equipment

The Equipment article lists some general all purpose equipment that is useful through the PVM phase and also for endgame use as well.

Third Class Compatible Equipment

Main article: Warlock Equipment

It is recommended to look at the Equipment recommendations for the Third Class job to see what equipment to strive for, rather than to spend a lot of money on a piece of equipment that will not be used in the future as a third class. However, some equipment may have a high level requirement, or are transcendent only.


After considering what requirement skills have (some skills can only be used with certain weapon types), the Weapon Search tool within the iRO Wiki DB site is very helpful. Generally, for physical classes (both melee and ranged), something with high ATK is best. For magic classes, something with high MATK is best.
