Dark Elven Warlock
The most feared, and certainly most haughty of the Dark Elves, Warlocks
have mastered the art of using magic in war. Though Warlocks are adept with
a variety of approaches to magic, they primarily use powerful elemental
magics as they are best suited to mass destruction. Notoriously
arrogant and almost always drunk on their own power, Warlocks feel a
constant need to demonstrate their abilities, and awe all they see.
The particulars of Dark Elven law give Warlocks license to
incinerate, electrocute, disintegrate, or generally maim anyone for something
as minor as a prideful step or a slight scowl.
Generally hiding behind a wall of minions, slaves and lackeys in battle,
Warlocks prefer to unleash their devastating magics from maximum range, which
is actually lower than one might expect. Warlocks favor destructive power and
spectacular effects over range and efficiency in choosing their spells.
Nonetheless, the Shrapmetal spell is without a doubt one of the most potent combat
spells to ever be used. Similarly, the dreaded Cataclysm ritual, which
requires several Warlocks working together, is said to be unparalleled in
destructive potential. Fortunately for the foes of the Dark Elves, this
spell is little seen, since Warlocks will only work together if they
Warlocks, due to their obsession with self-empowerment, can manage to
survive alone, and even go out with a blaze of glory when confronted
with large amounts of enemy forces. However, they are much more
effective when protected by escorting troops. By decimating clustered
opponents, Warlocks make an easy clean up job for
their escorts. This can sometimes backfire though, as Shrapmetal
and Cataclysm hurt friendly units as much as foes; no Warlock
will stop his spell in the middle of his glory just because some
slave in his war party is being permanently maimed by it...
