Auraist- someone who has trained in making auras to defend or using AOE attacks to harm. they follow one of three branches, light, dark, or elemental. these warriors are not full fledged mages but due to intense training and will power have gained the ability to manifest their will into something that will help them survive. ( The design of this class is to be a support class that can still survive on their own but is better to be using in a group. Depending on the branch that they follow will determine the role they are best for in that group. Light auraists will be more responsible for keeping people alive and able to fight, Dark auraists will turn the battle against people and weaken the enemies so that they are easy prey, Elemental auraists are specialized in bending the elements to they will, they can create large explosions, freeze a patch of ground making it slippery or encase someone in stone as armor or as a trap.)
Dark- based around weakening and slowing you enemies while they take damage, dark Auraist are one of the two defensive branches of the auraist class. They drain power and life from any enemies who get close to them.
Light- These auraists focus on boosting their allies as well as healing those around them with their auras. they are the second of the two defensive branches of the auraist class. with a aura that heals and buffs allies near them they can become an important part of the team.
Elemental- The elemental branch of the auraist class is the most aggressive, they focus on blowing up, electrocuting or freezing large areas of the battlefield. what they lack in targeted combat they make up with destroying sections of any group, army or maybe the landmass
