The Mad God’s Messenger Set was the eighteenth special themed set to be released.
This set offers a clear increase on the infamously small Priest damage output .A priest with WC tops and a Ring of the Pyramid would have 790 HP, 460 MP, 58 ATT, 42 DEF, 55 SPD, 55 DEX, 46 VIT, 81 WIS, making for a DPS of 1586-1210 (0-60 DEF). This set instead offers 2517-1851 DPS, further boosted to 3082-2417 when under the influence of the tome’s ATT boost (+20 ATT). It even surpasses a Wizard with WC tops, while retaining piercing.
The cost comes from the various quirks of the set itself. The wand fires two wavy shots with a decreased range of 7.5 tiles (true range of 5.72), and the ability swaps Healing for DEF decrease (-5 DEF) and ATT boost (+20 ATT), in addition to providing terrible healing (with a high MP cost). The Tome also gives a 1% chance to become Drunk for 2 seconds after taking at least 50 damage. While the Drunk effect does not often come into play, the surprise lag it brings can be a significant risk to your survival. Finally, the lack of VIT and small WIS further reduce the healing you’ll get. All this adds up to a set that is fairly dangerous, yet highly effective.
This set’s art and concept appears to be based off of unused sprites for an unreleased ST set from the Kabam era:
The set is apparently themed after the Messengers of Oryx enemies, although the enemies were added months after the release of this set.
