Don't bash me for not putting i/l, but I see i/l as the middle child of the 2/ if I had a choice for ? vs i/l then i'd prolly choose ?

I feel discriminated.
Edit:I do believe the bishops get the most buffed.[/quote]


But we f/ps do get no c/d mist eruption!

1. F/P have more damage per min. by a good amount.
2. I/L I like the elements and colors better. Also the high crit, longer range teleport, slow/freeze ability, and status resistance are nice.
3. In 4th job they train at close to the same speed. On very high hp mobs I would assume F/P have an advantage and on some maps I/Ls longer teleport would give them an advantage.
4. Well F/P have higher damage. The high dot damage plus ways to ignore DR keep the damage going when other jobs can not attack. On the other hand I/L have better status resist and damage reduction (some of that is a party aura). I/L also have a bind. The usefulness of the bind is a matter of opinion, but on some bosses in a party it can be very useful imo. Sadly newer bosses do % damage (ignoring damage reduction), seem to ignore status resistance, and some are immune to bind. As long as this is the case F/P are better and will be in the foreseeable future.

LulzMudkipzz Level 203 Bera I/L Arch Mage
1. F/P
2. Only played I/L.
3. They're probably both on par, based on the map layout.
4. F/P.

Best bosser, best grinder (lol, the punz), do more damage are all the same thing: Does the most damage. Most fun is usually linked to the first three things so really you're asking: Which does the most damage?

To which I say Evan or Luminous.

**1. do more damage** F/P Mage
**2. be more fun (in YOUR opinion)** Bishop. I heard even some other mages players claim bishop is more fun in their opinion too. That's the truth.
**3. better grinder** Bishop, no doubt. AR + revamped Big Bang + revamped Genesis = screen annihalation. (Edit: are we including all mages? if so, lumi takes the crown)
**4. better bosser.** F/P Mage is the best bosser among explorer mage, with his DoTs.

1 thing to keep in mind is that after Red, all explorer mages (evan included possibly) will get a higher weapon multiplier so you will do more than luminous/kanna of similar funding. Something to consider about.
