Default Fresh Start on Blue - Wizard

Hey guys,

I'm starting fresh on P99 as a wizard and was looking for other new players to connect with so that we can help each other along the way. I'm a somewhat inexperienced player but I know the basics. Any help to get me in going is also appreciated. I'll see you out there.

Good luck, enjoy the sever. The wiki is a fantastic resource and has plenty of new player guides and class specific guides.

You can sit while eye of zomm is active, letting you pull without losing med ticks. Against less resistant mobs rain does more damage than nuke.

At high levels use your level 12 lightning nuke to interrupt unstunable spell casters; it is fast casting with a large pushback.

Use cancel magic type spells when grouped with melee fighting damage shield.

Root early if warrior is tank; this will give time to build up aggro.

Great advice Jimjam, he'll be way ahead of the curve if he does those things.

Wizards have a hard time finding groups on P99.

Just something you'll want to keep in'll be a long, slow, solo grind to 60.

If you're not too high level, I'd highly recommend rerolling from Human. Dark Elf or Gnome are the best choices imo.

Also, you might want to just pick another class entirely. Shamans, enchanters, clerics, mages and druids are all a better option than a wizard.

Don't listen to them. Play what you want. It is true that wizards may sometimes be over looked for classes such as rogues who can continuously pump out melee damage and evade to drop their agro. However, I often find wizards in my groups when leveling, and they're fine doing dps. Just be prepared to solo when you can't find a group, and go into it knowing that if you want to be continuously active as a dps in group, wizards may not be the best choice given you have to med and that your nukes may draw agro to yourself.
