Wizard In Diablo 3 : Lore, Gameplay And Male And Female Names

Wizards are the rogues and outcasts of the magical world and they don't have permanent home.The word itself "wizard" is used by scholars, sorcerers and magi to describe one of their kind that are reckless and disobedient to the greater rules of magic. Wizards are very curious and intelligent same as all magi but their spirit is rebellious. They disobey the traditions and rules of magical practice and use their magic according to their own beliefs. It sometimes happens among magi that a young, talented apprentice is joining their academies and magical studies and instead of practicing standard academical arts of magic, they are caught searching in the forbidden libraries for rare and dangerous magics. Wizards are viewed as careless, rude and undisciplined exiles of the academical world of magic.

Some people think that the famous scholar and historian And al-Hazir is also a wizard and actually practicing magical arts but the truth is he is just an observer and is completely against those who use magic to achieve their own wicked goals while ignoring ancient traditions and laws. He knows a story about a young girl who was an an inspiration for a lot of young students to rebel against the magical authority. The 19 year old girl from Xiansai island was sent to study at Zann Esu mage clan but her rude attitude was too much for the small clan to handle so she was sent to more powerful Vizjerei to deal with her anarchic ways by forcing her under harsh discipline. However, her curiosity couldn't be stopped and she was caught in the Ancient Repositories where the most powerful spells were hidden. She was confronted by an academical mage Valthek. The young wizard shamelessly attacked him and left him unconscious in the area that was damaged by her reckless spells. And al-Hazir strongly opposes such rebellious wizardry and says that certain schools of magic are too destructive to be practiced by inexperienced adepts.

f you feel that intelligence, curiosity and a rebel spirit is the key to practicing destructive and dangerous magic that can hurt multiple opponents, the Wizard might be the best class for you.

He can slow time and disintegrate which doesn't really fit pure elemental magician type.

Elemental Proficiency
