Recently Intrepid released a video on the Mage showcasing the Mage’s abilities from Levels 1-10. One of the most controversial animations in the video is the Fireball video where the character is seen jumping up into the air. Steven has recently announced this animation is already being overhauled and the character will no longer be airborne for this animation, instead the character will remain grounded. This is an example of the community driven process being utilized by Intrepid Studios. When they put something out for examination, if there is a wave of feedback, Intrepid listens and responds.

Role of a Mage
The role of the Mage in Party Play is currently very damage heavy, with some party support and CC skills. It is important to remember, we only have the list of skills from level 1 -10, and with 40 more levels of vertical progression there are still a lot of things that can be added to the Mage’s skillset to greatly modify their role in party play.
The following list is the list of Mage abilities known for levels 1-10. This list represents only the Rank 1 abilities. We do not have an official list of the Rank 2 and Rank 3 abilities. When that list becomes available the chart will get modified.
