Age of Conan: A Look at the Demonologist

StraddenStradden Managing EditorHalifax, NSPosts: 6,696Member Age of Conan Correspondent Mike DeHart has written this new look at the Demonologist class in Funcom's Age of Conan.

Archetype: Mage

Permitted races: Stygian

Weapons: Daggers, crossbows, and thrown weapons

Armor: Cloth and silk armor


The Demonologist is one of the few "true" casters in Age of Conan and is probably the class that most closely resembles a stereotypical mage. They specialize in offensive single-target and AoE (Area of Effect) spell damage, and have various defensive shields, stuns, and run speed buffs. They can summon a demon that will fight for the demonologist and provide his party with a small buff depending on the demon that is summoned. Many of the demonologist's spells also scale upwards with every level even if you haven't acquired a new rank yet so don't fret if you go some levels without any new spells. Your spell damage is determined by a combination of your magic rating and any specialization ratings (such as electrical magic rating). Just remember that Funcom has stated that this rating does not apply in PvP, in order to provide fairer player match ups.

    anyone who says cloth and silk armour is obviously trying to big up the game. if you play it you will find cloth = silk. its the same armour type.

    I just think of the pets as being 'visualized' buffs - more mana, etc... and some extra damage.


    Should have included a section of where to best distribute skill points, too.

    When I played I had an 80 Demo, and the class sucked balls. Way to many reasons to bother getting into. +damage not affecting pvp was dumb imo as well.

    I doubt pets have changed much, they where worthless then, probably worthless now...they where not worth the time to summon most of the time.

    If brute force isn't working, you are not using enough.
    Don't argue with an idiot, they will bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.

    Recently swapped main chars from the Priest of Mitra to this class. I didn't try it early on, but find it's pretty awesome now, especially in PVP and I love my Demon Avenger.
