Even though I know that the very concept of the Warmage class is extremely inefficient compared to those casters who specialize in other types of magic, no one can deny that sometimes it is just fun to cut loose with fireball after fireball. y vision of the warmage is not exactly the same as the !." version seen in #omplete $rcane, however. #ontrary to popular myth, the warmage is not just an arcanist who specializes %completely& in dealing damage. #ertainly that is a large part of his class, but war re'uires more than that. (his class has a large number of area)effect spells %and very, very few single)target ones&, along with a variety of spells designed to control the battlefield. *rom debuffs to the various walls and spells the sculpt the battlefield, I think you will find that this version of the warmage is an absolute joy to play. +ecause sometimes we just want to fireball the heck out of something.$s always, I would welcome any criti'ues and criticisms, suggestions and advice on how to make this class better suited for the athfinder *antasy -ole)laying ame. /et me know what you are thinking, ok0aster $rminas
Warmage
(rained for war, the few who survive the arduous #ollegium +ellum $rcanum to graduate as Warmages are proud individuals who yearn for the day when their talents can be unleashed on their foes. (he $rcane War #ollege is brutal in its training, but its graduates emerge with abilities that few other arcane casters can match. 1killed not only in magic, but in the mundane art of war, these warmages lead armies and use their talents to wipe their enemies from existence.
