Hello!

I'm delighted to share with you another piece of concept art.

This is a mood board for the Mage class. A mood board is an image which helps us develop a class, and provides the artists and designers a base from which they can work.

We hope you like this piece of concept art, and we'll have more to share soon!

I realize the end result won't look like that, but it's still very impressive and I'm looking forward to what the result actually is. May I ask if that is the new starting armor for mages as the other concept art was for rogues?

Question, I noticed the mage's wand in the picture has some fire (or what looks like fire) orbiting around it. Is this just for effect or will we see different types of weapon effects apart from glowing in the new engine?

everytime i see mages holding books, it always seem out of place. looks to me the mage is unprepared for battle and poor memory skills they need to lug their books around :P

Cool art piece though, hope you give mages the option of wearing red if they are attuned to fire magic.

It always makes me laugh when I melee with books. But it is always appreciated when a rager casts sharpen weapons on my book so that I can give out paper cuts better

Great piece of art, I look forward to seeing the finished work :D

Very cool!

But I think it would be cooler if a mage were in a crouching position like on the Iron Man 3 Movie Cover, and have fire and ice bursting around him, while mobs fall in the death animation.

Next do ranger, like have them do something badass like...
Having them jump off a building, after having just casted Explosive Arrow. So basically he's jumping away from an explosion he caused.
