They're going to be highly focused in this DPS magical DPS elemental damage. You're going to have high mobility the ability to kind of teleport around the battlefield. You're going to have CC capabilities. You're going to be in tune with the ability for you to empower your spell's with with certain types of damage that can be beneficial for certain types of encounters. – Steven Sharif
