Ranged Damage
Mages can expend mana in order to deal high amounts of damage with amazing speed, though they must be wary of exhausting themselves.

Area of Effect Spells
By calling upon sheets of ice, columns of flame, and waves of arcane power, mages can effectively attack multiple foes at the same time.

A mage has many options for controlling the battlefield, from freezing enemies in place to transforming them into helpless critters.

Mages possess the ability to transport themselves and their allies between cities and can summon replenishing food and water.

Students gifted with a keen intellect and unwavering discipline may walk the path of the mage. The arcane magic available to magi is both great and dangerous, and thus is revealed only to the most devoted practitioners. To avoid interference with their spellcasting, magi wear only cloth armor, but arcane shields and enchantments give them additional protection. To keep enemies at bay, magi can summon bursts of fire to incinerate distant targets and cause entire areas to erupt, setting groups of foes ablaze.

Class Information
Mages demolish their foes with arcane incantations. Although they wield powerful offensive spells, mages are fragile and lightly armored, making them particularly vulnerable to close-range attacks. Wise mages make careful use of their spells to keep their foes at a distance or hold them in place.
