Untold Legends: The Warrior's Code - Character 101

There are five different ways to inflict genocide upon entire species of evil bastards. Which is right for you?

Ah, the Disciple. He might have had it rough during gym class when he was a kid, but bullies taunting this plus-sized sorcerer today will likely find themselves fending off all manner of elementally-themed, magical kick-sauce. In fact, the Disciple is a bit of a sorcerous linguist: he knows how to say "your ass is mine" in all five mystic disciplines: fire, ice, electricity, poison, and the dark-themed "shadow".

For example: the Disciple can freeze you in place with a shotgun blast of frigid ice, transform into a ball of flame and literallybowl right into you and absorb your life directly with a shadow spell. As a final touch, he'll then sit laughing as you wake up and take a swing, only to find yourself sizzled by a zillion-volt lightning bolt when you connect. If you're still alive, he charms you and makes you defend him against your buddies. He's tough.

By the way, yes - that did say "shotgun blast" up there. The Disciple's shotgun is a little short-range, but there's no denying its effectiveness. He isn't strong enough to deal huge physical damage, but he carries a bladed club that can nonetheless carve a target a new smile when he's close enough. Combine that with a hefty beast form (quick tip: learn the Howl ability and get ready for varying results), and you have a mage who excels at ranged combat and crowd control, but who's no slouch when things get up close and physical.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

I was the founding Executive Editor/Editor in Chief here at GR, charged with making sure we published great stories every day without burning down the building or getting sued. Which isn't nearly as easy as you might imagine. I don't work for GR any longer, but I still come here - why wouldn't I? It's awesome. I'm a fairly average person who has nursed an above average love of video games since I first played Pong just over 30 years ago. I entered the games journalism world as a freelancer and have since been on staff at the magazines Next Generation and PSM before coming over to GamesRadar. Outside of gaming, I also love music (especially classic metal and hard rock), my lovely wife, my pet pig Bacon, Japanese monster movies, and my dented, now dearly departed '89 Ranger pickup truck. I pray sincerely. I cheer for the Bears, Bulls, and White Sox. And behind Tyler Nagata, I am probably the GR staffer least likely to get arrested... again.
