General Playstyle[]

As a range damage career, Battle Wizard should always put Special killing as your first priority if your weapon/career skill set allows. Then depends on your choice of range weapon, focus on Elites or Horde Mobs until you reach a point where you need to vent. Or you have to switch to melee weapon to block or generate Temporary Health. Even with some builds that are designed to boost your melee damage, your range weapons are still better against high-density enemies. When there is a Boss on the field, clean Horde Mobs and Specials, then help your team deal with the Boss.

Description:

With Beam Staff build, you can two shot-bodyshot all Skaven/Chaos specials with instant snipe attack. The blast attack can kill Skaven Horde Mobs in one shot, Chaos/Beastman in two shot.

Your level 10 talent Famished Flames increase both your range and melee damage by a lot, but you are locked to use DoT apply melee weapons since it reduces other types of damage. Combine with level 30 talent Kaboom!, you can easily kill most of enemies on the field with the press of a button.

Prioritize killing Specials first. Then use your blast attack to kill the rest of the enemies. Use your melee weapon to generate Temporary Health when you have no health to vent. Or clean up some left alone armoured units. Choose melee weapons that apply a good amount of DoT since it can benefit from your talent. If the density is too high, use your career skill to instantly kill most of them. Your Beam Staff also melts Boss very quickly, just press left click at them.

Description:

With Fireball Staff build, you can one shot-bodyshot all Skaven/Chaos specials with a fully charged fireball.

Your level 10 talent Volcanic Force boosts your fully charged range attack greatly. And level 30 talent Burnout can give you more time and space to charge them when enemies are rushing towards you. Or use it to chain stagger Elites/Boss twice in a row.

Prioritize killing Specials first. Then focus on Horde Mobs with your staff. Always fully charge your fireball. Keep your heat high to get 3 stacks of Reckless Haste passive, but not too high that overcharge slows you down. Then charge a fully charged fireball, and vent a bit. Use your melee weapon to generate Temporary Health when you have no health to vent. Or clean up some left alone armoured units. So choose melee weapons that have high damage against Armoured units. Use the double Firewalk to stagger high threat units, or reposition yourself.

Description:

With Flamestorm Staff build, you need to learn the least amount of charge time you need to kill different types of units, so you can optimize your damage uptime. And try your best to Tag Specials for your team.

Your level 10 talent Lingering Flame is the most consistent one for Flamestor Staff on this row. It also makes your damage against Armoured units and Boss very consistent. The level 30 talent Burnout can give you more time and space to charge them when enemies are rushing towards you. Or use it to clear a path and stagger Specials, chain stagger Elites/Boss twice in a row.

Prioritize killing Horde Mobs and Elites with Infantry/Berserker armour first. Then melee Armoured units with your melee after they have fire DoT on them, so choose weapons with high damage on armour. Though it is still better to use your staff when there are multiple Armoured units unless they are Chaos Warrior. Use the double Firewalk to stagger high threat units, get close and safely kill Specials and reposition yourself.

Prioritize staggering Specials and Elites with low charge geyser attack first. Then charge your attack as much as you can to kill Horde Mobs more efficiently. Use your melee weapon to generate Temporary Health when you have no health to vent. Or clean up some left alone armoured units. Choose melee weapons that apply a good amount of DoT since it can benefit from your talent. If the density is too high, use your career skill to instantly kill most of them.
