Battle mages are wizards trained in the heat of combat, developing their abilities for the purpose of offensive use. Battle mages are dangerous to behold, deadly and capable of long-term combat survival. Battle mages can be as useful as a fighter in a melee or as deadly as a ranger from afar, depending on the wizard’s individual preference.[1]

AbilitiesEdit

In order to make themselves all the more lethal in combat, battle mages are trained to unleash arcane magic in an instant if necessary and with considerable ease. From the beginning of their training, battle mages are capable of striking a hindered foe with a blast of arcane power straight from their own body, which manifests as either fire, cold, or electricity. Battle mages also learn to focus their attacks in order to make them substantially more accurate. More experienced battle mages are also capable of unleashing any of their most basic spells reflexively when badly injured.[1]

Battle mage spells universally enhance the abilities of a wizard in battle. Relatively early in to their training battle mages learn the spell arcane rejuvenation, which serves to heal battle mages, prolonging their effectiveness in combat. The more powerful closing spell is a devastatingly powerful blast of elemental energy that battle mages often save for the finish, hence its name. [1]
