Mystics are perhaps the most inscrutable of the Roman heroes in Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising, as it is they who delve the deepest into the arcane powers of sorcery. Mystics conjure enigmatic energies both elemental and ethereal in defense of the Republic. In order to ruthlessly smite their foes, they can cast spells that deal massive damage to individual targets as well as entire groups of foes. Some of their most devastating offensive spells, however, are the ones that summon vicious and powerful creatures to aid them in battle. But Mystics’ powers are wide and varied, as they also have at their disposal a number of charms for defending and strengthening themselves and their squad. One look at the Mystic Feat Tree reveals the overwhelming potential of these masters of the magical arts.

Dealing damage and weakening opponents is, of course, job number one for any Mystic worth his or her rune-embroidered robes. "Numinous Flame" is the basic spell for accomplishing that task: it conjures a blistering fireball that detonates in a fiery explosion upon impact with their unfortunate opponent’s person. When they want to inflict direct damage and leave their adversaries with wounds that will also sap their health over time, spells like "Pierced Effigy" and "Snakebite" serve most admirably. When their enemy is another sorcerer, they can use "Silence" to stop them from casting and "Drought" to leech away their energy. But when a foe is already dead, what more can a Mystic do? "Charm Undead" stuns any undead enemy while they figure out which spell will best incapacitate that walking lump of rotted flesh. And if a Mystic finds him or herself beset on all sides with foes, "Spirit Wall" slows those foes down long enough for the casting of "Miasma," which envelops several foes in a cloud of lethal poison. Or they might just use "Firestorm," which allows a Mystic and his or her spellcaster minions to join forces in calling fiery death down from the heavens.

Some times Mystics and their squads of loyal minions need a little extra help in overcoming a particularly nasty rival, which is when their summoning spells are most effective. When the knocks get a bit too hot, they can use "Lethian Bones" to summon a corpse from its grave and distract their opponent, who will direct all of their hatred at the re-animated sack of bones long enough for the Mystic to plan their next move. For that next move, they might decide to use "Summon Snakes," which summons a serpent to fight at their side. Or perhaps they could use "Summon Shade," which calls a vengeful soul back from Hades to wield the fury of the other side of the grave against their foes.

Mystics have considerable powers that aren’t intended solely for the punishment of their enemies, as well. "Foretelling," for instance, allows them to use their powers of prescience to see their opponent’s next move and increases their chances of dodging an attack. "Energy Chant" allows them to magically recover some of their energy, even in the midst of heated battle, and "Time Quickening" has a similar effect but works for the Mystic’s entire squad. "Insubstantiality" grants a Mystic increased resistance to physical damage, while "Spirit Shield" increases their ability to block or resist their opponent’s attacks. Mystics also have abilities that allow them to be victorious without even once crossing staffs with their opponent: "Shock" turns an enemy’s attacks around, inflicting damage on the attacker every time they strike the Mystic who has cast the spell; and "Life Stealing" automatically drains some of the enemy’s health and gives it to the caster.

Mystics may derive their powers from some mysterious nether region of otherworldly energy, but that doesn’t make them any less effective in the real world. Whether calling on fire from the heavens or casting a protective spell to shield themselves and their squads from harm, Mystics wield truly devastating powers that cause all enemies of Rome to tremble in fear.
