3.2 ArchMage Data by Cmenion

Rank 15 ArchMage
RenownRank 11

Im here to give a review on the Allmighty Archmage. If i had to use one word to describe the ArchMage, it would be: "PWNAGE"! Archmage is the Range Dps Healer for the HighElvz. Specializes in DoT and Heals. I could find little flaws in the archmage, one thing was the lack of CC at level 15. I did however take a look at all the powers in the trainer menu and noticed there was CC down the line. Ive noticed a few people complaining about the Searing Touch nerf in 3.2, but it so far, it hasnt effected my ability to pwn by much. At level 8 you aqquire your first morale ability, and instant cast power heal. Useable every one min. (morale abilitys can only be used once a minute, use one, and it will trigger cooldowns on all 4 tiers, so use them wisely). This power saves the day in PvE and RvR. With this power you will be able to solo 2+ mobs at once.

A great mechanic with the Archmage is the High magic, its identical to what the little shammy has. Cast DPS, you build a bonus on your healing spells and vice versa. What makes it cool is the powers have diffrent effects per point of high magic, for instance, the more high magic you have, could either reduce casting time on a healing spell making it instant cast, or enhance the damage of a DoT spell. I find this mechanic awesome for this archtype. Goes great in RvR when your going back and forth from healing to dps, trying to dish out DoTs as fast as you can to build you instant cast heal. Its allot of fun and takes allot of practice to get down right.

In public quests, im usually in the top 5. I have worked a little harder and gotten first a few times, but TBH on a public quest its not neccessry to work that hard.

In scenarios its not uncommon for me the have dealt top 3 damage and top 3 heals at the same time. Again, it all boils down to how hard do you want to work those fingers. In open RvR i find myself in the same boat. If im with a compitent team and we stick together, 9 times out of 10 were going to pwn and equal force. Archmage is a great class, most fun ive had in an MMO in years.

I know how you feel Wern, I would love to see Magus, Squig Herder, Sorceress. I hate that WAR made such interesting classes makes picking them without playing impossible.
