    What is the Magician Community (and others) opinions about the 1H Rods Mages can use now. It also frees up the ability to use a shield as a Mage as well. I was wondering what others thoughts are about the new weapon choices?

    In my opinion the only advantage of 1h rod is for the shield and maybe later for a soul blader to use with in combination with a dagger. Dagger ita faster than 1h rod abd 2h rod.

    I love 1h rod right now suits really good my playstyle of being a close combat magician. I can tank more hits thanks to shield.

    I wonder how much weaker a 1H rod is compared to a 2H rod. If its something like 1H swords to 2H, might really hurt casting.

    ...I did a Comparing with lvl 30 1* 1h Rod and 2h Rod and Blunt 1h Rod is the Medium Weapon between the 2 Weapons it has More Atk than 2h Rod does but More Matk than Blunt has in which case
    2h Rod: Maple
    ATK: 26~46
    MATK: 84~107
    1h Rod: Flash Wand
    ATK: 34~50
    MATK: 63~94
    Blunt: Short
    ATK: 67~100
    MATK: 58~91
    Dagger: Dark
    ATK: 69~98
    MATK: 38~67
    also I got these Stats from Weapon Shop NPC cause it the cheapest way but is still true 1h Rod does a Better Job than Blunt does but unlike 2h Rod you can Better Matk than Blunt but can Dual Wield for Better Matk same can be said for Mages instead of Dual Daggers can be Dual 1h Rod or 1h Rod+Dagger or vice Versa Depends on your Style also yes Dagger Matk is Lower than 1h Rod but for Mages that are going Sb Dagger Atk is Higher than 1h Rod Atk which makes it a Balance of Atk and Matk also can just wield 1h Weapon+Shield just saying 1h Rod Gives more Options than what 2h Rod does not saying 1h Rod does better Dmg just that it gives more Options.

    Thanks a lot for this. I am thinking this will have quite a good use in TB's for casters who can already 1 skill mobs since there isn't much value in overkilling them. Will definitely give it a shot when I get one. For now I will concentrate on rods, Daggers are pretty good weapons for SB and pretty quick aswell, but that class is probably the last I will master. :p

    No its only a matter of playstyle. 2h rod its still stronger than 1h rod and has the same speed, but 1h rod gices tou more options... You can dual wield dagger+1h rod, dual wield 1h rod, 1h rod+shield.

    generally just abit lower than 2H counterpart at the same level. it only gives you more options (dual wielding, 1h rod + shield, 2x 1h rod) and 2 additional slots (provided they are already unlocked)

    1h rod, just like guns, are used for rod+shield if you value defense over offense.
    Or use dual 1h rod to get 4slots. They say 4x roserus orb stack, so imagine dual wielding with dual roserus on each rod. Your bliz crits will be crazy, even more deadly than using 2h. But that build is only for rich ppl who can afford the orb (180m/pc).

    No, dual 1h rod is just getting the average of the two rods you are using.
    2h is far way better.

    I'm not sure if anyone has noticed, but there's a big difference between a Rod & 1H Rod. 1H Rod may have slightly less damage then Rod, but 1H Rod grants a shorter cooldown, faster Enchantment, quicker skill charging, & greater skill speed.

    Shorter cool time and fasting enchantment might be possible but not greater skill speed, atleast for now. Skill speeds are adjusted depending if the skill has a speed branch, aside from that, its kinda impossible for now.
    Like the windslash from mage slashing faster with 1h rod, fireball (mage) and prominence (ls) increasing in travel speed, etc. Except if you post a vid about speed comparison between 1h and 2h rod, itll be a great help to our mage forumers :)

    Lol! Yeah, I'd of made a video by now if I had a Tablet, but I'm telling the truth. I created a Ma recently and I decided to see the comparison between the different Rods, I'm only telling you what I saw myself, but I respect your own perspective. :)
