What's up guys, ok first im a melée dude done have much skills, but I currently lvling some Mage jobs for protect, mp ws, and spikes! I've had a few folks randomly hit me protect and I've notice that it doesn't last very long, 15 max, don't notice the exact time limit. But I was wondering if protect and spikes have a stat( mnd, int,) that makes it last longer? right now I'll 40 on all magical stat @ lvl37, and should obtain protect skill very soon. I was wondering if their are any high lvl mages out there that could answer this. Does your protect/shell/spikes last longer at higher stat lvl or is it based on rank?
