hiya, sitting at work, bored, i typed this up... while i would love this class i don't think Bliz will ever put it into game... although i don't think they will put tinker, or demon hunter in either.... which i keep seeing people post about... i've always like the idea of a battle mage so i wrote this up
this is a working document, i am not that good at naming things the names below (specs etc) are just how i think about them
The leaders of the Kirin Tor after seeing what has transpired in Azaroth during the cataclysm, and seeing the need for them to have troops that were more survivalable. they started training battle mages. Being able to survive more than a normal mage, but still being able to unleash the hurt. Battle mages are able to fill the roles of healer, or damage dealer, and bring some interesting toys to the party.
Roles – heal, melee, ranged
HERO CLASS – Starts at 75, enters full game at 80. Need an 80 to create
Horde - Blood elf, troll, goblin, forsaken, Orc
Alliance – human, gnome, dwarf, worgan, Draenei Night elf
Neutral - Pandaren
Armour – All Mail types (spirt, Int, Agil)
Weapons – staff, main hand sword, Mace, 2 hand mace, polearm
Restoration – healing spec, uses Spirit Mail
Healing it the name, and healing is the game…
Resuscitate ally – only while in combat
Elemental –ranged dps spec, uses Int mail
Special – able to summon up to 2 elemental pets
Fire, frost, nature, shadow, Holy, Arcane… spells from all 6 types of magic
2 elementals can be summoned but they are only active for 2 minutes with a 5 minute cool down, each deals damage(fire, arcane), tank( shadow,Frost) or heals (holy, nature) depending on their specific elemental type. A major glyph can be used to change it so 1 elemental is summoned, and stays active.
Combat – melee DPS, Uses Agil Mail
Special – Staff and sword - Able to use a staff in offhand with a 1H sword, or mace in the main hand, but staff loses 50% of its stats.
Using a 1 hand weapons with a staff, or a 2 hand polearm, mace, or staff the combat battlemage uses spells, and weapon strikes to deal damage to their enemies.
