Apprentice magi, under the mentorship of Wizards, serve as Tower troops before they become full masters of their craft. Both mage and arch mage units suffer no damage penalty for attacking adjacent enemies and reduce the casting cost of allied hero spells by two. Arch mage attacks penetrate cover and deal full damage to enemies behind siege walls.
With a decent stat increase, and the ability to do full damage to enemies behind cover and siege walls, this upgrade is well worth the cost. The arch mage is a competent damage dealer.
- Theodorus is a specialist in arch mages, and gives them +1 to Attack and Defense per hero level after fourth level.
