3. Arcane Orb: Launches an Arcane Orb that explodes upon hitting the initial target, dealing damage in a wide radius. Purges all enemy buffs and silences targets for a brief period.


- Initiate Scholar's Habit - Energy Shield: The habit provides a defensive spell that reduces incoming damage while replenishing energy for each hit received.

- Initiate Cleric's Robe - Infinite Spirit: The robe's main ability grants a shield that activates upon taking damage, rendering you invulnerable and increasing your damage by 20% for 3 seconds.

- Initiate Soldier's Boots - Rejuvenating Sprint: The boots' ability is a sprint that provides a slight healing effect.

Advantages and Weaknesses


1. Speed in Monster Clearance: The build excels in swiftly clearing monster-infested areas, thanks to its efficient area-of-effect abilities.

2. Mobility and Crowd Control: High mobility allows for strategic positioning and quick escapes. The build's abilities, such as Chain Missile and Enigma Blade, provide effective crowd control against enemies.

3. Suitable for Large-Scale Battles: Well-suited for large-scale battles, offering a blend of mobility and damage-dealing capabilities. Particularly effective when equipped with various armor pieces to enhance overall performance.

4. Affordability: Considered cost-effective in terms of equipment and resources, making it accessible for a wide range of players.


1. Low Defensive Capabilities: The build lacks substantial defensive features, leaving the character vulnerable to sustained enemy attacks.

2. Challenges in Facing Multiple Enemies: Engaging multiple enemies simultaneously can pose difficulties, as the build may struggle to withstand simultaneous assaults from different directions.



Your Q spell deals significant damage to the initial target, then jumps to two additional targets with reduced damage. Each hit grants an Arcane Charge. These charges can be consumed using auto-attacks or direct damage abilities like Enigma Blade or Arcane Orb.

The W ability strikes all enemies in a cone, dealing substantial damage and consuming Arcane Charges for additional damage. If you hit at least one enemy, you unlock the combo ability, Blink, allowing a short-distance teleport while briefly becoming invulnerable, at the cost of increased cooldown.

The E ability launches an orb, damaging and silencing the first target hit, purging buffs. It swiftly interrupts and consumes Arcane Charges for extra damage.

The passive, Persistent Power, boosts your damage, especially against single targets. Casting spells increases your attack speed and range for the next three basic attacks. The low cooldown of your Q allows rapid utilization of this passive for swift enemy takedowns.

When low on energy or in need of a boost, use your habit's ability. Each hit replenishes energy and reduces incoming damage.

The robust defensive ability of the robe can be employed to mitigate damage. If damaged within 1.5 seconds of activation, gain an invulnerability shield, boosting damage by 20% for 3 seconds.

Your boots offer a sprint ability for quick health recovery and increased movement speed.

In a one-on-one encounter:

1. Initiate with Q to deal damage and apply Arcane Charges.
2. Use W to consume Arcane Charges.
3. Reapply Q to reapply Arcane Charges.
4. Use E to consume these charges.
5. Repeat Q casts, consuming charges with auto-attacks, until you can use W and E again.

Against a single enemy, rotate between Q and auto-attacks for maximum damage, using W and E situationally or for additional damage as needed. Adapt your strategy based on the evolving battle dynamics.
