    - at Lv.30 : increased by 6 on average
    - at Lv.40 : increased by 3 on average

    Because wizard damage needed a buff (not witch)

    That damage boost effects all non awakening skills (possibly awakening as well)

    The base AP boost will effect our grinding combos for hystria and aakman and also boost one of our better pvp skills the rabam fireball. If it's an overall AP boost to the classes base stats not just pre awakening skills this will heavily effect out damage output and grinding.

    I'd say this is a pretty big buff

    It won't boost anything as this change does not have any effect on your ap past lvl50. It is a pure lvl1-50 buff.

    If I interpret it correctly it suggests that you gain an additional 27 base/hidden character AP by the time you reach lvl50. I've been saying for over a year that Wizard does roughly ~20AP less hidden dmg than a Witch does, almost like the 20AP passive in the skill tree was bugged for Wizard or something of the sort.

    Show me where it specifically states this. Also, what sense does it make to take away from base stats as you level your character? Answer: it makes zero sense.

    Exactly

    If it's a overall 27 AP boost this will heavily effect our class

    i dont know if you interpret this correctly. but i think it fits the new trent to buff low level stuff for shadow arena especially as it says "between". but is also ok if they buff in general wizard since he lacks some damage compared to witch

    27 hidden AP helps out, but you will actually end up 2nd guessing yourself if you notice it or not. Hidden AP nowhere near as strong or noticeable as sheet. But I'll take anything to be honest at least they recognizing the discrepancy, maybe better tweeks in the future to come. Wizard need a lot of help, it's been in a pretty bad/broken spot since the CC changes and "bug" from last year. Most have rolled their awakening over to Witch or re-rolled to another class all together.

    IF its permanent 27 ap buff it sounds like a good thing. we already do low dps compared to other classes.

    IF.

    27 hidden ap should be noticeable difference. probably moreso in our preawakening kit. <3

    if this was true, it would be an insanely stupid buff

    ofc you didn't. It was a change to balance out the lower average dmg that wizard did in lvl1 to 50 compared to other classes. Beyond lvl50 there is 0 difference.
