Welcome to our Last Epoch Spellblade build guide for the Mage class. Here you will learn everything about the Spellblade playstyle, passives, skills and strengths or weaknesses to conquer the world of Eterra.


Introduction to Spellblade

"A mage who has mixed martial prowess with their mastery of spells to face enemies in close range. A sword coated in ice and flame, a shield gleaming with wards. The Spellblade is as brilliant as he is deadly."

Mage Class Icon Last Epoch

The Spellblade is one of three Mastery classes that can be chosen from the base class of Mage. If you're looking to play a melee base that uses the magical prowess of elemental empowerment in every skill, look no further. It would not be uncommon to see a wake of icy shards or the charred remains of enemies that once stood up to the Spellblade. Weapons raised against the Mage shatter to his protective ward and empowered armor. Even his most mundane movement skills will tear his enemies to pieces. With exciting visuals and powerful attacks, this is a class you will certainly enjoy.
