Stats

The most basic and obvious way to increase your physical attack damage is through your stats.

Every point in INT increases your magic damage. For every 3 points in DEX, your Variable Cast Time (VCT) will be reduced by 0.1 secs. Lowering your cast time will improve your overall DPS (damage per second) since you’ll be able to cast and kill monsters faster.

Equipment

The second main source of your damage is your equipment. Aim for the highest +MAtk, +MAtk%, and Refined MAtk stats.

Here are some common armors that increase your magic attack damage.

  • Elven Ears
  • Angry Snarl
  • Monocle
  • Orlean’s Glove
  • Eye of Dullahan
  • Robe of Cast

We highly recommend checking out our Wizard Farming Build guide for the complete list of recommended equips.

Enhancement, Enchantment, Upgrading, Refinement

Full Guide: Ultimate Guide to Upgrading, Enhancing, Refining & Enchanting

Enhancing (a.k.a. Strengthening) increases the effects of your equipment. For example, it “enhances” the MAtk of a Staff weapon. Make sure to always max your gear’s enhancements to maximize their damage. It only requires zeny and can be done from your backpack.

Refining gives your items a “plus” like +4. These refines add Refined Atk/MAtk: pure offensive stats and ignore a target’s normal Def/MDef stats, only Refined Def/MDef stats can reduce them. Talk to Hollergrenn in town to refine your items using Oridecon for weapons and Eluniums for armors.

Mora Advanced enchantment

Enchanting an item gives it a random set of bonuses. Obviously you’ll want the MAtk/INT increasing effects. Aim for that rare 4th enchantment too for the highest bonus. Talk to Mora the Cat NPC in Geffen to enchant your gears.

Upgrading items to higher tiers gives it more powerful stat bonuses and even special effects. You can do this by clicking on the “up” arrow in our item’s detail window. It requires crafting materials and some zeny.

Cards

Cards are a great source of magic DPS too. When inlayed to your weapons, they can increase your damage against certain monster races by a certain percentage.

Unlike physical attacks, element and size modifier cards do not affect magic damage. Only race cards are useful for magic users.

Eating Cooked Foods

Full Guide: Ultimate Guide to Cooking Gourmet Food

Eating cooked foods gives you great bonus stats for several minutes/hours, such as additional MAtk and reduced cast delays.

The best part is, you can eat multiple foods at a time and their effects will stack. For example, eating six Original Will-Green Kebab which gives +40 Magic Attack each will give you +240 Magic Attack! You can increase the stack limit by leveling up your Taste level.

Check out the complete list of cooking recipes for reference. Here’s a list of recommended foods that increase your physical damage:

Stat Dishes

INT Dishes are different from Cooked Foods. They give you bonus stats and bonus magic damage for 30 minutes. When consuming multiple stat dishes, only the effect duration will stack, not the effects.

DEX Dishes will help a bit in reducing your cast time, but for its price, it’s probably not worth it if you’re just AFK farming.

INT Dish A INT Dish A INT +5
Magic Damage +10%
Food Shop in all towns
int dish b INT Dish B INT +10
Magic Damage +20%
Food Shop in Geffen/Al de Baran

Guardian Scroll Buff

Full Guide: Guide to Mentorship/Student System

For non-Transcendent characters below Level 85, get a Mentor as soon as you can if you don’t have one already.

Mentors can use the Guardian Scroll buff on their Students which gives a whopping +20 to all Stats!

The guardian scroll Guardian Scroll item can be bought from the Mentor Shop in Prontera and it only costs 2,000 zeny!

Pet’s Passive Skills

Here are all Pets that increase your magic damage or reduce your cast time:

lunatic Lunatic + Refined Magic Attack

Aesir Monument Runes

Join a Guild as soon as possible and unlock your Aesir Monument so you can start activating Runes.

Runes give permanent stat increases to your character such as +MAtk, or additional bonus damage to your skills. For example, Wizards have Runes that increase fire skills damage by a certain percentage.

Working on your Rune path is a long-term investment and Guild Donating should be part of your daily routine. Later on at higher levels, you’ll want to focus on collecting Gold Medals and Contributions than equips.

Guild Blessings

Another benefit of joining a Guild ASAP is the Guild Blessing Buffs a.k.a. “Prayers.” At the cost of Zeny or Belief Tokens, you can permanently increase your stats through these buffs. Just talk to the Valkyrie in the first left wing in the Guild Hall.

Combat Blessings gives bonus Attack

For Magic Attack users, you’ll want the green “Wise” blessings.

Guild Blessings cost some Zeny and increases over time. Belief Tokens can help reduce the cost: 1 Belief Token will be consumed instead of Zeny, for each 2,000 Zeny spent on Guild Blessing.

Use the Proper Elements

Full Guide: Guide to Elements

Knowing your target’s element lets you significantly increase your damage by using its weakness. Check out the full chart here: Guide to Elements.

For magic users, make sure to use the correct spells on your targets. For example, you’ll want to use Heaven’s Drive (Earth) on Steam Goblins (Wind), Lord of Vermillion (Wind) on Anolians (Water), or Meteor Storm (Fire) on Stings (Earth).

Skill Buffs

Some skill buffs are also great for maximizing your damage. This is one benefit of being in a party.

Priests can use Blessing to add +20 INT and DEX, or Suffragium to reduce your cast time significantly. Lex Aeterna is also a powerful spell which lets you deal double damage on the target.

For Wizards, you also have your self-buffs: Energy Coat and Amplify Magic Power. Make sure to max them out and put them on auto-skill.

Unlock & Deposit Headgears/Cards in Adventurer Handbook

Unlocking headgears and cards as well as depositing them to your Adventurer Handbook can give you permanent bonus stats.

Completing some quests and achieving certain milestones also lets you unlock Adventurer Titles. It’s those titles like “The Sun” next to player’s names. These titles give a bit of stats, here’s a list on titles that increase Attack and how to unlock them.

Cat Cafe Items for PVP/War of Emperium

Lastly, another method to increase your magic damage against Players is by buying items from the Cat Cafe, a Guild Facility in your Guild Hall. This is great if you’re going for PvP and War of Emperium.

Items in the Cat Cafe can be purchased using Unity Proof, a currency obtained from Guild challenge rewards.

A quick note on PvP: all players are Demi-Human race, so items that have +damage % against Demi-Humans such as Hydra cards are great for PvP.

Conclusion

Hopefully this will help you achieve that one-shot kill on your target monsters for farming.
