Battlemage is the Class that specializes in strong attacks, especially after using Items (Steel Scimitar or Sentinel Battlemace) for buff your creatures, accompanied by different magic (deal damage to all creatures (Ice Storm or Fire Storm) or to one of them (Firebolt or Lightning Bolt). If you chose Strength and Intelligence attributes you will play this Class. You’ll be able to combine attack buffs of creatures (constant effect like from Morkul Gatekeeper, or temporary like from Savage Ogre, Ongoing effect for attack buff like from Northwind Outpost or a passive buff like from Orc Clan Captain) and weapons (Bone Bow) as well as a lot of different kinds of magick (good AOEs (Ice Storm or Fire Storm or situational Burn and Pillage) or point spells (Firebolt or Lightning Bolt) which help you to control the board. You can also combine the unique bonus effects of creatures to equip your army by different Items even if your army famous for its magical powers. Merric-at-Aswala is an example because this creature will give to all friendly creatures in the current line a random Item.
