Spellblades are fighters who have trained themselves in the art of of both the blade and the arcane. Unlike Defenders and Warlocks, Spellblades can specialize in any school of magic that suits their needs.
Spellblades may be able to combine fighting skills with magic (excluding Battle Mages), but they have limited power when it comes to both combat and spellcasting.
Ex: Spellblades can only cast spells by channeling it into their weapon and releasing the spell by swinging the blade in the direction they wish (which takes up a 2 rounds multiplied by the spell level). Spellblades can also cast spells as many times as they want depending how much Mana Points they have. Should they run out of MP, the Spellblade must draw mana from enemies to restore their mana at the cost of 1 Technique Point per Mana Point.
Unfortunately due to the limit of magic power most races have, only Runetouched are gifted with the ability to train in the path of the Spellblade.
