[] [HC] Arcane Warrior - Physical Battlemage - [g4][c][sr][vid]

Hey Guys,

This is what Battlemage should be like!

This is the current state of events

And this is what we can achieve with some unorthodox methods and black magic rituals!

The core of the build revolves around the Spellscourge set. The devs want us to use blade arc together with Devastation but good luck trying to make it work guys. You will starve on points and endup having lower damage and sustain. So instead, we drop the blade arc idea altogether and slap the Conflagration relic in! This allows us to have the luxury of maxing out quite a few important nodes to squeeze a lot more damage and toughness. Fully transmuted Conflagration is exactly what you need to clear trash and heroes. It adds about 105-110k DPS to the spec, which is not negligible, especially given the range! It is also perfect for proccing Azrakaa’s Sands, which when paired with 30% CD reduction gives us up to 2.5 procs per sec! Oh, and to make things even better, we add Ulzuin’s Torch in the mix! Now we have a low CD fully converted Physical Meteor Shower, bound to Blitz! This allows for quite a bit more AOE and increases our damage output!

Pros & Cons

Decent damage output - Devastation crits around 70-100k, Meteor Shower does very decent damage too, and the cherry on top, Conflagration deals 105-110k DPS as well!
Very high OA (3.4k resting)
30%+ Cooldown reduction!
Good DA - 3k
Crit bonus - 50%
3.6K armor + shield + Maiven’s + Overguard + Menhir’s Will +Mirror = survivability is fine!
Good energy sustain, rarely needs potions.


Hard to overcap resists without good greens. The no greens version will struggle in SR and Crucible without great piloting.


There’s plenty of damage and sustain to push high SR with this spec, but I’m still learning to pilot it, so it might take some time before I reach 75. If you want to test it yourselves, let me know and I’ll link the char files. For now, I’m trying to unlock Crucible 150, check the links in the Video section down below.
I’m currently testing SR 50-60. Good damage even with the armored mutator (15% phys resistance to mobs)

Added the no-greens version! Turns out not so bad in terms of resists.

Did you ever get around to testing cadence vs. conflagration?

Flat damage from cadence should buff devastation as well

Yeah, I starved myself on points and got nowhere. Conflagration procs Azrakaa nicely too, so it’s not just its damage. Plus, with low CD, you basically have no time to swing before Blitz and Devastation, so Conflagration fills the gap perfectly, at least that’s my feeling so far. You eliminate trash and weaker heroes at range with just your RMB.
