since arcanists can become any magic using class, I guess I'll ask my question here. What is a heirophant? And is a hydromancer a water based preist and/or mage, because thats what I heard. -Mr.X8 02:38, 8 June 2007 (UTC)

Doesn't anyone know what a heirophant is? -Mr.X8 23:44, 31 August 2007 (UTC)

Wikipedia says 'An interpreter of sacred mysteries and arcane principles'.--SWM2448 23:46, 31 August 2007 (UTC)

So its like a cross between a shaman and mage? Mr.X8 22:25, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

Mage

"Arcanists are a type of mage casters of various races apparently capable of wielding arcane magic" so, like all mages? As such shouldn't this (the canon part, not the RPG) be merged with Mage? -- MyMindWontQuiet (talk) 15:22, 24 May 2017 (UTC)

I think the point of the arcanist class was that it was supposed to represent mages, wizards, sorcerers, warlocks ... aka anyone using magic really. In the end, the new lore made it so that the mage class represents the generic spell-casting arcane-using people. Not sure what to do. Xporc (talk) 15:29, 24 May 2017 (UTC)
Mage is indeed the basic, generic class. Since we've already agreed to merge mage, wizard and sorcerer, I guess we'll just include arcanist too. -- MyMindWontQuiet (talk) 22:28, 24 May 2017 (UTC)
