Psychics are masters of mental magic and are capable of casting both strong offensive and defensive spells. They no longer pursue mastery of the elements, but instead manipulate the essence of the instinct of creatures. They manifest their will through Soulforce to enhance themselves and their allies while harming their enemies. With a soulsphere weapon at their disposal, they deal water and earth damage. A psychic's strength in a squad is to stay in the background and deal heavy AoE damage that stops enemies in their tracks.

Pros:

  • Fast channeling
  • Has many AoE and crowd-controlling skills
  • Offensive and defensive versatility with Black Voodoo and White Voodoo
  • Has the longest stun in the game
  • Has several self buffs and debuffs that affect enemies

Cons:

  • Requires highly refined equipment for Soulforce to benefit skills
  • Can steal aggro easily, especially in lower levels
  • Has a learning curve due to their several self buffs and debuffs
  • Lacks buffs/debuffs that benefit squads in higher leveled dungeons

Armor[edit | edit source]

Psychics, like other magic classes, primarily use arcane armor. Due to their already-fast channeling they typically do not require equipment or ornaments with reduced channeling on them. Most psychics will either shard their equipment using citrine (health) or garnet (physical defense) shards, depending on preference. They may also use Vitality shards for extra health and defense for greater survival. Psychics can benefit greatly from attack or defense shards due to their Black Voodoo and White Voodoo skills, allowing them to either deal large amounts of damage or survive for a very long time.

Psychics in PvP[edit | edit source]

Psychics are feared in PvP.

Psychics in PvE[edit | edit source]

Psychics are able to level up quickly because of their fast-casting skills and high damage. They begin with two single-target skills that they will mainly use throughout their journey, and make their way up to having a heal, a knockback, and the ability to play an offensive or defensive role. During lower levels a lot of buffs and debuffs for psychics may not be as effective due to their lack in Soulforce, which will slowly increase as they level.

Dungeons with a squad at lower levels can be particularly risky due to psychics starting out with high damage, causing them to easily steal aggro when fighting strong monsters or bosses. Unless the psychic is particularly good at staying alive it is recommended to either pursue bosses in White Voodoo or delay attacks to prevent this from happening.

In higher levels psychics can still enjoy high damage but at less risk of taking aggro as other classes typically catch up in attack power, though it can be easier to tank due to high-level equipment available and the usage of defensive skills such as White Voodoo and Psychic Will. The ability to use Psychic Will gives psychics the opportunity to replace barbarians in tanking bosses where usually their attacks are fatal to non-barbarians, as they can on most occasions bypass these attacks with good timing. In many modern dungeons psychics are not as popular as other magic classes such as venomancers or stormbringers due to their lack in debuffs or buffs that benefit the squad, however can still be sought after as effective damage dealers.

Psychics in Territory Wars[edit | edit source]

The main purpose of a psychic is repressing enemy skills and options with the variety of effects you can cast on players rendering even key opponents in a battle unable to act freely or effectively. Psychics can also make good use of their AoEs to deal a huge amount of damage to multiple targets if used in the right moments. In a pinch they can use Life Bubble to heal themselves and nearby team members as well. However, they usually have a low physical defense, which keeps them running from physical attackers.

Soulforce[edit | edit source]

Main article: Soulforce

Soulforce increases the effects of several buffs and debuffs for psychics. By default at level 100, a psychic will have 15000 Soulforce which can be increased by refining their equipment. The maximum Soulforce a psychic can have is 56800 with a Rank 9 belt, 58835 with a Rank 9 Fourth Cast belt, or 56835 with a refine-able belt. It can affect the amount of damage reflected with Soul of Vengeance, the chance of an enemy being silenced with Soul of Silence, the amount of damage absorbed and reflected with Soul of Retaliation, the duration of a stun from Soul of Stunning, the damage dealt by Soulburn, and the duration of Veil of Shadow and Shroud of Shadow.
