Okay so first let us first explore the
mage a bit more. You are a damage dealer through and
through. There is nothing that you are better at or ever will be
better at. You will have minimal health and a very deep mana
pool. You will pew pew the stuffing right out of every beast,
humanoid, demon, and hostile mob you encounter. You kill things
and you are good at it!
But alas the thankless work of sending
your enemies to the nether gets boring at times. Perhaps you want
to take up knitting. Does anybody care? Of course they
dont; and you dont really want to knit anyways. You just want
to be the best pew pewer that this game has ever seen!
This, my fellow adventurer, is where
Dual Classing comes into play. How can you be a better damage
dealer? Maybe its by adding the Priest for a second class so you can
heal yourself and the occasional party member while you dish out large
helpings of pain upon your foes. Perhaps you want to explore a
more vampiric approach by adding the shadowy Rogue as your second
class. The possibilities are endless as to what you can do when
you add your second class.
Here are a few key things to look at no
matter what your primary class is or what you are choosing for your
- Choose wisely matching energy pools can be a very bad thing
- Research even though Runes is a
fairly young game there is enough info out there to make an informed
- Always wear sunscreen
- Pick two classes that suit you if
you dont choose for you then you will not play the toon in the long
- Remember the class is for you so
while it may not be optimal all dual class choices have their
advantages in group play
- The class specific abilities are
not accessible from your secondary class.
- You only gain 10% of abilities only
to enhance the stats of your primary class.
Alright! Now we get down to the who and
the what. Which classes do what when coupled with the all
powerful Mage class? Below you will find a three part chart that
will help you along your decision making path. For this guide we
will not include a full list of elites that you can receive with each
class. This is going to cover more of the what. A full list
of elites that you can obtain are listed here for the Mage/** dual

The Mage class only does one thing and is really really good at it. This works to the advantage in that as soon as you roll a mage you know what your focus is going to be without question. So if you are in the biz of putting major hurt on your foes then a Mage is for you and I am sure you couldnt be happier!!
