When gun mages of the Arcane Tempest march to join the front line, the sight of their uniforms inspires immediate confidence among their comrades. The mages’ pistols foretell pyrotechnics to come when these elite gunslingers spring into action. Working like a well-oiled machine, they unleash a hail of rune-carved bullets enchanted by their unique sorcery. Since the invention of the firearm, only a select few have been born with the talent to become gun mages. Such sorcerers feel an instant affinity with pistols and an urge to extend their power through the gun’s barrel. The Cygnaran military absorbed the once secret and exclusive fellowship of duelists into its ranks as gun mages. Arcane Tempest instructors temper talent with discipline and instill each gun mage with unwavering patriotism and utter loyalty to the crown.
Gun mages must earn the right to wield the magelock pistol and wear the uniform of their order. Once recognized in this way, they are deployed in precision teams to take down adversaries by attacking with coordinated strikes that can knock back enemy warjacks or tear entire ranks of soldiers to shreds with brutal efficiency.
