Werit at WAR: Bright Wizard

Dragon Age wasn't the only game I played over the weekend.  I was in a PvP mood so I spent some time in Warhammer Online.  Rather than playing my normal characters, I had an urge to throw some fire around.  So I created a Bright Wizard.

The last time I played a Bright Wizard was during open beta.  It was fun then, but really not my style.  Since launch most of my time has been spent as an Engineer.  As fun as the Engy is, sometimes you feel like putting up big damage numbers.

The Bright Wizard can be tricky to play.  Damaging yourself does add a bit of risk when trying to annihilate your enemy.  This is especially apparent when there is no healer around.  I wasn't really used to this mechanic, so I killed myself on a few occasions.

While BW's are pretty squishy, they really do put out some high damage.  When I was around Level 5, I scored a critical hit of over 600 at full combustion.  Most of my Engineer attacks don't get that high without a crit.

It was a fun time, but the Bright Wizard will not be replacing my main anytime soon.  I've gone a bit alt happy in WAR lately, so this isn't the last new character to be seen.
