Gladiator


A master of flame, the Wizard succeeds by burning his enemies from a distance.
Every attack the Wizard does lays down an area of fire if Scorched Earth is upgraded. These areas stack on top of each other, for rapid damage to any enemies within.
The Wizard's Character Title will add skill power for everyone in your guild.

Skills and Abilities

The tables below list base values and tiers as they're shown in the Guild Hall. As an example, the first upgrade for Blast Wave can be bought at a Tier 2 guild hall.
Every upgrade to a skill costs skill stars, which are shown in the upper-right corner of the screen while in town.

Fireball (Primary Attack)

Launch a fireball that explodes and deals magical damage to nearby enemies. Every upgrade increases range and area of impact.
Damage value is based on distance from the center of the impact location:
A direct hit yields +2 base damage against that enemy, decreasing the further away the enemy is from the impact site.

Stats

The player starts off at level 1. Every time the Wizard levels up, stat boosts are gained.
What differs the Wizard from most other classes is his high base mana, allowing the casting of many spells in quick succession before a recharge is required.

To get stats at a given level, use the equation "X=scaling*(level-1)+level1stat"
