——–Introduction——–
Mystics, I would say this class isn’t much of anything, they are more of
a Frankenstien made up of a Venomancer and Cleric Class. They can neither
perform the full functions of each class. They can capable of sacrificing their “Pets” to improve their own abilities.

——–Attribute Distributions——–
There are serveral builds avaliable, But i must emphasize on self-preferrance, some people like to be light armored, or more of VIT it is really up to your own preference . There isn’t a standardized build. As for me, I personally prefer pure magic, or VIT build, since there is a pet tanker at your disposal. Here is the two builds I offer, as for the other builds, i won’t be listing them out.

PURE MAGIC
STR = Armor Requirements
MAGIC = Remaining.

Comments: More of Damage Dealing and Healing, very low HP.

VIT BUILD*
VIT +2
Str +1
MAGIC +7
*Per 2 Levels.

Comments: More HP, Relative Damage Dealing, Don’t over do the VIT. As long you hit more than 5k with Barbarian’s buff it is enough. Thats about 3125 HP at least.

——–Roles——-
Like what player Derressh said:
“The mystic is effectively the Druid class in another not-to-be-mentioned game. They are a “jack of all trades” class, meaning they can serve several purposes, but not to the extent of the classes that were made for those purposes and those purposes alone. This isn’t their downfall, but what makes them so unique. That they can
change their role in a squad at the drop of a hat.”

Neither Mystics are Pet Tankers, nor a full time healer.
They cannot tank as much damage or heal as much as a cleric, NOT to say they do not have purify(cleric’s skill)

Frost
This is what a mystic should do in frost:
>Through out the Frost
Give clerics and tanks their well-deserved resurrect buff once in 10 minutes
>When killing bosses
Summon out a Salvation to aid your tankers and a healing herb, they are 100% at your disposal, if they die, just summon again. When you are free, deal damage to the boss.
>When killing groups
Summon lightning mistress and use its hush skill, watch youself here, and don’t over do it with your AOE skills.

And this is pretty much what a mystic should do in all general FB/ BH.
