Symbol of the Mystic

A mystic walks a wild path, combat pets at her sides, wielding primal powers to harm and heal, empowering her allies while cursing her enemies. Mystics travel the whole battlefield freely. They fight at close quarters, healing and boosting allies, draining and destroying enemies. They channel powerful auras that enhance whole groups. They summon allies to draw aggro, to fight, or to heal, and can summon their entire party from one location to another.

Add extensive crowd control and the capability to resurrect fallen allies, and you can see why adventuring parties seek them out. They add to the longevity of any party, can seize an out-of-control situation and dominate it until their allies are on the offensive again, or simply unleash their own magical fury. Mystics make their comrades better at what they do—and a whole lot more.

Skills Overview

Mystics have more skills than any other class. In addition to buffs, debuffs and straightforward damage, mystics can teleport away from danger, or summon their allies together for a quick regroup. They can resurrect fallen friends or call on their magical allies to aid them—a guardian to draw a foe’s attention, an avenger to inflict pain and suffering, or a healer to keep the mystic healthy. Mystics provide in-battle enhancement and replenishment while offering superlative crowd control and respectable damage.

About Mystics

Using the power of their scepters, mystics support their allies and control the flow of battle. They drop healing orbs, and apply short-term boosts to attack power and speed. They can also restore mana to the whole party—by sucking the life force out of their enemies. Mystics also summon magical creatures to aid them in battle.
A mystic stuns, curses, sears, smites, and otherwise deals death to her foes using terrific area-of-effect attacks. Her superb Corruption Ring area-of-effect attack burns up her foes’ health and returns it to her party as mana. With a simple gesture, she can dispel enhancements from her foes and debilitating effects from her allies.
Armor: Robes
Mystic armor, like that of all arcanists, is robes of cloth, but their skills—and their magical pets—ensure their survival on the battlefield.
Weapon: Scepter
The scepter is the focus of a mystic's magic, which emanates from the world around her. With this instrument of power, the mystic can heal and harm, sustain life or bring death.
