The Slurp Scion Wizard Set is the 26th ST set to be released, alongside the Daring Discoverer Samurai Set and Court Magician Sorcerer Set, first obtainable in the “A STory of War III” Campaign. It is the second ST set for the Wizard after the Twilight Archmage Set (not including the Legacy Twilight Archmage Set).
In addition to the stat bonuses it provides, this set also swaps the regular staff shots for 3 shots, the outer two of which curve outwards, with a decreased range of 7.5 (true range of 2.84) and rate of fire of 70%, and the ability becomes a simple aoe of 3 tiles, changing the ability to be more similar to an instant assassin poison, granting a massive 25 SPD boost.
A wizard with WC tops and a Ring of the Pyramid would have 790 HP, 460 MP, 83 ATT, 42 DEF, 50 SPD, 75 DEX, 40 VIT, 72 WIS, making for a DPS of 2885-1883 (0-60 DEF). This set’s higher 3234-2226 DPS is only obtained at about one half of the range, often too close for a wizard to be comfortable, going as low as 1078-742 at full range. When considering spell damage, the only manner in which this set deals more damage against single targets is if you consistantly miss at least three quarters of your shots using the regular spell, which is rarely the case against bosses.
However, this set’s focus lies clearly elsewhere: it transforms the wizard into a splendid rusher. Using his ability, the wizard reaches a dizzying 100 SPD for 2 seconds, albeit with a cost requiring Divine MP heal pets to even think about sustaining, which combined with the curving 3 shots and AOE spell allows him to shred through low-health minions and dodge past higher-health ones. It also does not slack in the survivability department.
