    Hello all, i need help to decide which weapon should a "BATTLEMAGE" use, i cant be a staff/scepter cuz ill give these weapons to mages.

    All of them must use Shields so it can only be 1 hand weapons.

    Maybe have one or the other, depending on whether they're meant to be a melee or ranged unit (or able to switch, like having the ranged wand-wielder be the standard form, and give them a Metamorphosis-like spell that makes them a tougher melee (magic) swordsman.

    Hat worn on the hand?
    A smaller battlemage which is holding a smaller battlemage and so on until it barely can be seen(use lower and lower poly as you do in the chain)?
    A "focus" which looks like a plain sphere of metal?
    Unlimited arcane power rotating around the hand?(an orb effect)
    Souls in its fist that leave a trail as the battle mage moves around?
    A bag of flour?(obvious)
    A wand holding the hand rather than being held by the hand?
    A javelin?
    Its hand being replaced by some sort of skeletal metallic hand?

    In your first post you did forbid staves suggestions.
    Here is a staff picture for fun.

    Seems you want something fairly generic fantasy since you have other weapons assigned to other classes like axes, swords and glaives.

    Well then, it kinda limits things to 1-handed rods/wands or scepters.

    I would probably prefer something more exotic to separate the battle mage from the rest. Maybe like a Scythe like Magus from CT, or a Rapier like FF Red Mages.

    I think a bladed scepter could actually be the best hybrid, something like a smaller version of Loki's staff from Avengers. Something curved and exotic looking with a long shaft, neither looks big enough to be a polearm or a blade large enough to be a Swordsman weapon. Spellbreakers really nailed that look in WC3.

    -edit- Actually, the Naga Siren weapon is what I'm thinking. Just scaled down to fit as a 1-handed weapon.
