Developer Journals: Illusionist, Pandemonist & Soldier Decks

By Guest Writer on June 19, 2012

Illusionist, Pandemonist & Soldier Decks



The Pandemonist combines the forces of Elementalism with Blood Magic to be a raging torrent of magical power on the battlefield. She is excellent at crowd control, being able to Impair and Hinder large groups of enemies with roots and stuns. She can keep a safe distance from her rooted foes and let loose with wicked Chain attacks which not only hit them all, but also do brutal critical hits and Afflict them with punishing damage-over-time effects.


The Pandemonist Deck is good for fighting against groups of monsters both alone and in a team. It is however always crucial for the Pandemonist to be able to keep a distance from her foes, because of her lack of defenses. In player versus player combat The Pandemonist can be excellent at trapping enemy players with nasty roots, so her teammates can fall on them like a pack of hungry wolves.
