Through Strength and Intelligence, Battlemages infuse their weapons with spell power to deal additional damage with every strike. Battlemages also specialize in anti-magic, and have the ability to silence other magic users and shrug off status effects.
How to Unlock
Get a quest from the barracks in The Capital. Then head to Desert Outpost - Fugitive Hideout on the west side of the map along the chasm (Lvl 7) and make it to the end to see an epic showdown between a Battlemage and a Rogue Wizard. After the Battlemage wins, go talk to him and ask him to train you. At first he will deny you then you have to leave the dungeon. You will then find the Battlemage in a random encounter on the world map. Help him kill the bandits, then ask him once more and he will agree to train you, meeting you at the Capital Academy.
There is an opportunity when you first meet the Battlemage trainer to still claim the bounty after he takes your kill. This requires a few points in Charisma and asking him to let you claim the bounty before inquiring about training. There is another opportunity to collect the bounty and learn battlemage skills after you save him from the bandits as well.
