The Chronicles of Spellborn – Guide to Spellcaster Disciplines

Posted Thu, Apr 09, 2009 by Sardu

In The Chronicles of Spellborn, players will start their adventures as one of three main archetypes: Rogue, Spellcaster or Warrior. Upon reaching level 5, new Disciplines become available for each archetype – think of these as Spellborn’s version of subclasses. While each individual Discipline will focus on a set of unique abilities and skills, elements of the core archetype will remain throughout the leveling experience. To help players new to the world of Spellborn with their initial Discipline selections, we’ve put together a series of handy guides detailing the strengths and unique abilities of each potential path. We’ve also included a brief description of the first few Bodyslots for each Discipline. The Bodyslots themselves will be unique skills for each Discipline which can be used by a simple press of the F1-F5 keys (depending on which slot you place the skill into). This allows each Discipline to access certain skills or short duration buffs that can be used independently of the Skill Deck, and in most cases can be used outside of combat.

The second of Ten Ton Hammer’s Discipline guides for The Chronicles of Spellborn focuses on the Spellcaster archetype, highlighting its unique Disciplines; the Ancestral Mage, Runemage and Void Seer!





Scholars of hidden knowledge, Spellcasters are experts in the art of controlling time, space and the elements. Spellcasters are attuned to the primal forces that roam the Deadspell Storm, enabling them to unleash devastating magical powers on their opponents. Although close combat might not be the Spellcasters’ strong suit, when these masters of the arcane get the right distance between them and their foes, there is nothing more lethal. From the spirit legions of the Ancestral mage, the anti magic of the Void Seer to the pure explosive power of the Runemage, a Spellcaster is best left in a good mood if one values his life!

Ancestral Mage

A modern offshoot of the Runemage, Ancestral Mages came into their own as a unique Discipline through the close study of electrical discharges. This led to the discovery of ways in which these discharges could produce an ‘echo’ of certain creatures. By locking these echoes into crystal cages, Ancestral Mages learned to summon them in spirit form to do their bidding. Thus a new school of elemental magic was born. While the Ancestral Mage continues to focus upon researching ancestral magics, they also seek out new ways to control their spirit companions.

Strengths: Through the use of various Spirit Pets, Ancestral Mages can solo quite effectively while still providing excellent offensive and buff support in groups.

Unique Ability: Spirit Pets

Bodyslots: Available from Spirit Shop Echotamer Ronick Lerastin

While most people consider 13 to be an unlucky number, we here at Ten Ton Hammer don't happen to agree, at least for this week.
