Which is a mouthful to say, really. But such is the life of someone who reports on Warhammer games and gaming updates. At any rate, new gameplay footage of Mage Elontir has emerged ahead of the release of Warhammer: Chaosbane, which you can check out after the jump.
Here's the official lines from the source, which you'll duly note we have separated into a quote box, as opposed to just, you know, changing a few words here or there and then passing the information off as our own.
Elontir, a High Elf mage, is a veteran who has already fought the forces of Chaos at Praag, then during the siege of Kislev, which has earned him a certain renown among his peers. This ranged damage specialist’s mastery of the Winds of Magic allows him to cast numerous spells while his dexterity allows him to quickly put distance between himself and a foe attacking him in melee.
Thanks to his prayers to Hoeth, the Elven god of knowledge and learning, Elontir gains access to powerful spells through a unique skill tree. Like each of the game’s characters, Elontir has a unique ability: he can precisely control the areas-of-effect for his spells. With this capacity, Elontir can, for example, slow down time on the enemy’s path to help his allies decimate the Chaos hordes. This effect can also be used to accurately push a group of enemies towards his allies who specialise in close combat, in perfect complementary cooperation.
Warhammer: Chaosbane offers a unique game mechanic, which can be activated by all 4 playable characters. By massacring the Chaos hordes, heroes can charge their Bloodlust meter. Once full, the player can unleash their rage and activate new ultra-powerful skills.
The first hack and slash to take place in the Warhammer Fantasy Battles world, Warhammer: Chaosbane plunges the player into the heart of the Old World. Set just after the Great War against Chaos, a bloody conflict which ravaged the Empire of men, civilisation teeters on the brink of collapse. Players will embody a human, a High Elf, a Wood Elf, or a Dwarf, and discover the iconic locations of the Warhammer Fantasy Battles universe that has captured the imaginations of millions of fans across the world.
