As someone who is used to conquering power with power, he makes the most out of the mistake and transforms into a fierce mage, versed in close combat, in the blink of an eye! With the perfect combination of strength and spells, he uncovers a new path of gaming!

But… Are you certain I’m one? Alright… Feel the might of my saber! My sword! My hidden weapons! What? You’re saying I’m no mage now? Well let me prove it to you, if you don’t believe me! But even if you believe me, I will still show you just how unstoppable a mage who knows kung fu can be!
