Rune Mages are arcane savants possessing powerful destructive magic. They are also unique in their ability to create runes that enhance the power of themselves and others. A Rune Mage can be an imposing enemy due to their offensive power, as well as an invaluable ally on account of their rune mastery.

The Rune Mage receives many skills that focus on wielding destructive magic. They also have a large arsenal of skills that allow them to create Area of Effect (AoE) spells by drawing runes on the ground and manipulating them. Rune Mages are most often found in the midst of a fight adding fuel to the heat of battle.

“We Runemages tend to have lots of spells at the ready allowing us to target multiple enemies or groups. We’re good at thinning the pack, which can be quite handy in a party. On our own we have pretty much all that is needed to survive. Runemages are pretty versatile, all things considered.” – Master Runemage Gerreth Bournbray, The Academy, Hawksmouth
