Where possible I try to avoid the characters resets, so I planned the build to be a quick starter with the Charged Bolt of early to mid game use then to switch over to Bliz and GS as I get deeper into the game. The combination worked very well with the cold spells as my go to attack with CB in reserve for CI, but it did mean going through a shipload of Mana potions until I got “Insight” into the merc. I played a considerable time with a “Spirit” Crystal sword, but had to settle for the Occy to help with the resistances and the MF. As usual, the CTC teleport on the Occy was a pain in the arse; being bounced around the screen like a pinball by ranged attackers is not my idea of a good time. I usually complete a character at around level 85 but I have spent a considerable time MFing, thus the level 89 completion. Even with the time I spent doing AT, Meph and Pindle runs (and getting over 40% of the way into a new grail), I really did not find a number of items that I would have liked to have had for the character; as you can see from my equipment list. So, that’s it – one down and six to go. After complaining about some of the modern games that fill the screen with garbage spell effects, I play a character that uses Blizzard and Charged Bolt… Go figure!
