Depends on whether you want to be efficient in few (1-2?) elements or if you want to be rounded.

First of all, are you going sage or wiz?

My build for wizard was:
85 int
90+ dex
everything else in agi. The reason I liked agi was the flee it gave me so I won't be mobbed by too many mantises. I also had quagmire with me so...

I've also seen wiz go pure agi/int as well, and that can work. As long as you use fast cast skills such as soul strike and frost driver.

If you're talking about skills for mages only:

Max Firewall is useful for almost every type of monster. I learned to position lvl 10 fw on top of skel archers to 1 hit KO them. Learning to use firewall correctly is definitely a steep learning slope, but when you get it, it's worth it =p

Max Frost driver and max thunderstorm is good for future sages, as TS is their only aoe attack.
I usually get by with lvl 5 bolts, but some people rather specialize. It really is up to you. The plus side of specializing is you can get higher lvl skills faster. The downside is you can only go after specific monsters or party in certain maps~

Places you could level:
It's been so long since I've been mage...or will be if I rebirth my sage on Renewal, but I usually start off with:

pupa-porings-willows-poporings...something like that =p If you get someone to help you level, you can hit metalings XD

Good luck

Fast Lv + PvM/MVP:

10 Fire Bolt
10 Firewall
5 Quagmire (Wiz)
5 Storm Gust (Wiz) (lv 5 only during early levels for a faster cast, kills just as good as lv 10)
99 int/dex (pure int until 99 then dex)
9 luk

+10 Rod [4] with 4 Drops Cards (as Wiz)
(as Mage use the Arc Wand or anything that maxes out your damage)
+x Guard [1] with Thara Frog Card (CTHO + WoE/PvP gear)
+x Muffler [1] with Raydric Card (CTHO + WoE/PvP gear)
+x Silver Robe [1] with Pupa Card (CTHO + WoE/PvP gear)
Clip [1] with Vitata Card (mandatory)

For WoE/PvP:
(though you should ask experienced WoE Wizards ingame about this, if you happen to find a guild.
You should be fine until 85 base int without screwing up your WoE stat build)

99 dex
~30 vit (49 total)
~90 int (with gears and buffs you should aim for a total of 105/112/120)
10 Storm Gust
10 Lord of Vermilion or Meteor Storm


Places to level:
Muka's until you reach lv ~30 + 10 Fire Bolt/Firewall
Hode's until you reach lv ~38
Geographer's or Alarm's or Mi Gao's until job 50.

Then get Storm Gust asap, Phen Carded accessory or the All in One Ring and party an FS Priest for CTHO until lv 99.


My personal most favourite Mage Skill:

10 Soul Strike

GET IT !!! (also good to kill annoying monsters fast i.e. Archer Skeleton disturbing you while killing Alarms >.>)

im going to say what I did for level its pretty simple.

get into mage, do mage training quest.
kill wolfs
get an acolyte with warp portal, (cause your going to die sometime) and go straight prison lvl 1 with vertical firewall. Youll do good money there and you buy stuff.
