Elf Archmage

Overview: style="color: rgb(255, 255, 255);"> style="color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">The High Elves are known
far and
wide as the most powerful mages in the world, and the Archmages are the
best even among their own kin. Capable of weaving all of the Winds of
Magic together in complex and subtle ways, the Archmages can easily
turn the tide of battle in their favor.

As the only true experts in the use
of High Magic, the Archmages have learned to achieve the
ultimate balance between healing their allies, and smiting their
enemies. While most
commonly classified as a Healer, it would be a grave mistake to keep
him from using his magical attacks in a fight. Every cast of a healing
ability builds up Tranquility, thereby improving the destructive
attacks. Each destructive attack adds to the Force pool, which in turn
lessens the cost of the heals.

- Loremaster Haydrel, Archmage of the White Tower 

South and east
of Avelorn,
on the shores of the Sea of Dreams, lies
Saphery, the land of Wizardry. The heart of Saphery is the Tower of
Hoeth, the shrine of the God of Wisdom. This is the greatest repository
of magical knowledge in the world, compiled over the centuries by High
Elf mages and scholars, many of whom still dedicate their lives to the
accumulation of magical lore. The most powerful of these scholars are
known as Archmages, and are capable of manipulating all the winds of
magic weaving powerful sorceries known only as High Magic.

For a
healer class, the
Archmage is really quite an effective soloer. The heals will keep him
alive long enough for his magical damage over time strikes to whittle
the enemy down. The long range of the damage spells mean that most
often, the enemy is near death before reaching melee distance. Remember
to use a comparable amount of beneficial spells to attack abilities;
achieving a balance between Tranquility and Force makes for a stronger

An Archmage
is a strong
addition to any group. The heals and group buffs will keep everyone
alive, allowing the tank and DPS classes to do their best. The
Archmage's heals have a very long range, allowing him to stay at a safe
distance during the more difficult battles. Building up Force is
necessary to maintain his Action Points pool, so he will need to joust
forward to land his own damaging attacks during the fights.
