Time to close out our D&D character class rollout with the final class–the Magic User. Info and gameplay footage within!

The name pretty much says it all, but for the sake of being thorough, I will go ahead and point out that the Magic Users excel at using magic. This point bears emphasis, because they really excel at it. The presence of a Magic User in your party will greatly turn the tides during a boss battle. If you play conservatively with the Magic User (as you should), you can stock up a vast array of spells to unleash all at once, quickly decimating its health.

The trade-off is that the Magic User is the least versatile in hand-to-hand combat, and must be played very defensively. Luckily, this class has one of the most effectively defensive moves in the game. By double-tapping the jump button, the Magic User will do an immediate backward teleport. The move is cancelable, meaning you can quickly dodge out of the way at just about any time. This is definitely one of the more demanding classes in terms of strategic thought, but that also makes it one of the most rewarding.

Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara is due out this June on PSN (NA: 6/18; EU: 6/19), Xbox LIVE (NA: 6/19; EU: 6/19), Wii U e-Shop (TBC), and PC (NA: 6/18; EU: 6/18) for $14.99. More info on the Wii U version coming soon!
