Wizards are powerful offensive magic users. They rely on dangerous magic strikes as well as devastating Area of Effect spells to wreak havoc.

Job Change Guide

See Wizard Job Change Guide for detailed information.

Changing into a Wizard from a Mage requires the player to complete a number of tasks:

  • Item Collection
  • Written Test
  • Battle Test

After completing these tests, the player will be transformed into a Wizard. This takes place inside of the Geffen Tower.


There are a large variety of builds in terms of skills. In terms of stats however, there is not much freedom for originality besides using a melee build, which is very unusual and not recommended for new players.

Basic Leveling Build

Wizards concentrate on INT (damage), DEX (cast time) and VIT (survivability, HP pool). Magic users tend to have high cast times, so skills like Magic Strings and sometimes Suffragium are very helpful.


Eden Group Equipments Quests

Main article: Eden Group Equipments Quests

Eden Group Equipment is free and a great place to start for gear to use. 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.

Link to the iRO Wiki DB Weapon Search: http://db.irowiki.org/db/weapon-search/

Most of a Wizard's MATK come from the weapon, so using high MATK weapons is preferable. Upgrading a Staff / Rod also gives bonus MATK.

Some Rod Recommendations:

  • Eden Staff II (+150 MATK, Free staff from Eden Group at level 40)
  • Dead Tree CaneStaff (+155 MATK, Int +4, Int +1 per upgrade past +5)
  • Survivors Rod [1] (INT version): (+120MATK, +2 INT, +300 HP + Set item with Survivor's Manteau)
  • Evil Bone Wand (+110 MATK, +4 int, + Set item with Skull Cap)
  • Survivor's Rod [1] (DEX version: +2 DEX, +300 HP)
  • Gentleman Staff [1] (+125 MATK, +1 DEX, + Set item with Magician Hat)

Some Two-Handed Staff Recommendations:

  • Wizardry Staff (+200 MATK, +6 INT, +2 DEX, + Set item with Spiritual Ring)
  • Soul Staff (+200 MATK, +5 INT, +2 AGI, + Set item with Spiritual Ring)


  • Valkyrja Shield[1] (+3 DEF, +5 MDEF, -20% from fire, water, shadow, and undead elements)
  • Stone Buckler[1] (+3 DEF, -5% damage from [Large] monsters, Compound bonus with Odin's Blessing[1] and Magni's Cap: +2 STR, +5 DEF, +5 MDEF)

The player should have multiple shields with "racial cards" - cards which resist respect races by 30%. For example, if they were to level in High Orcs or enter a PvP area, they should equip a Cranial shield (Thara Frog card) to reduce damage received from Demi-Humans (i.e. High Orcs or other players) by 30%.

While racial guards are vital, it may be difficult to acquire all of the necessary ones immediately. Some players choose to get a Rigid Guard (Thiefbug Egg card, +400 HP) for use in the places they do not yet have the appropriate racial guard for.


Some accessory recommendations: Belt[1], Clip[1] (+10 SP), Nile Rose[1] (+10 HP) have no level requirement, unlike other slotted accessories.

Cards for Accessories:

  • Vitata Card (Able to cast heal, Prefix: Healing)
  • Creamy Card (Able to cast teleport 1, Prefix: Teleportation)
  • Smokie Card (Able to cast hide, Prefix: Hiding)
  • Bloody Butterfly Card (Able to cast while being hit, cast time +30%,Fire Wall damage +5% Prefix: Spell-flow)
  • Phen Card (Able to cast while being hit, cast time +25%, Prefix: Under a Cast)
