Nightmare Wiki

Master of the elements, the Arcanist is a casting class that wears light armor & wields a staff. They shun heavy armor as they have excellent means of controlling several foes at once, keeping them at a safe distance.

Burning with fire, slowing with ice, paralyzing with water, & preventing several foes from using abilities are some of the strategies the Arcanist uses to gain an advantage.

When death is upon the Arcanist, they can use mana in place of health for extra survivability. These strengths make the Arcanist the perfect solo class & useful when a party is in danger of being outnumbered.

New skills are unlocked at certain levels and are available for purchase from the Arcanist Master in the Training Hall.
