General Icelightningarchmage

Not sure if there is still anyone out there but Recently I took a liking to Ice Lightning Mage but I've some questions. 1) +1 Attack Speed or 50% Buff Duration as inner ability? I've seen that the most "recent" thread has most of the users recommend 50% Buff Duration over +1 Attack Speed but I'm unsure how true is it for today. 2) Should I fret myself and fill up the Critical Rate area in Maple Union to achieve 100% Critical Rate? I understand that Critical Damage is the strong point of Ice Lightning Mage but should I worry much about other damage sources' critical rate like Elquines, Blizzard's Final Attack and maybe Thunderstorm, since Frozen Orb and Chain Lightning has higher innate critical rate? Is 75%~80% of Critical Rate sufficient?

Which cape should I pick? I'm unsure which one should I pick out of these two capes. I sort of prefer Luminous Memory Cape as a whole but its pattern on the back is a little weird. I do like the fact that the gold pattern of the cape match the gold marble of the Nocturnal Staff though, just that the pattern looks somewhat weird but maybe it is just me. Fensalir Cape's back is really awesome but the idle and alert stance is rather weird as it's curved in instead of out. Luminous Memory Cape also seems to strike a little more balance in shading as it's more of a silver colour and it brings attention more to the Nocturnal Staff while the Fensalir Cape does fit the whole outfit perfectly, blending everything else into a single piece. Anyway, he
