How to Get LightCaster Class: Update
If you've already got the Class, this does not apply to you
The Good news: the LightCaster Class is CRAZY strong and REALLY easy to get.
The Not-So-Good news: the LightCaster Class is CRAZY strong and REALLY easy to get.
In the name of improving class diversity and healthier game balance moving forward, we're making some changes to the LightCaster Class requirements.
The Better news: If you already have the LightCaster Class, NOTHING changes for you. Nada. Zip. Zilch. Go on blasting bad guys like you always have.
The Best news: LightCaster Class is NOT CHANGING or being nerfed. (BUT Heroes who do not already have the class will need to hit level 80 before they can start to unlock it.)
If you don't have LightCaster Class yet, pull up a notepad and read on. You've unlocked a new quest!
LightMage Class: the Precursor to LightCaster
If you do not have the LightCaster Class yet, starting this Friday, you'll need to obtain LightMage Class. LightMage is LightCaster’s younger sibling. It’s a less powerful but balanced version you'll unlock if you own the Evolved LightCaster or Enchanted LightCaster armors.
To get LightMage Class:
- Talk to Aranx in the /celestialrealm map (click "Shops")
- Buy the Evolved LightCaster armor from the Evolved LightCaster Armor shop.*
- Get the Evolved LightCaster Token from its shop.
- Use this token to purchase the LightMage Class.**
Rank up your LightMage Class and enjoy!
*If you already have the LightCaster Class you can get LightMage for free by buying a free LightCaster Token C from the same shop.
**The LightMage Class Shop will only appear if you own Evolved LightCaster (or the Rare Enchanted LightCaster). If you have Enchanted LightCaster, then you will use that Token to purchase the LightMage Class.
To get LightCaster Class:
- Talk to Aranx in the /celestialrealm map
- Get the Evolved LightCaster Armor. Buy the Evolved LightCaster armor from Aranx’s shop shop to get the LightMage Token.
- Get LightMage Class. Click “LightMage Class” in Aranx’s apop once you have the LightMage Token to get the Class.
- Complete Aranx's Celestial Realm quests. You’ll need to do all the quests in /celestialrealm and /lostruinswar to access the farming quest
- Get LightMage to at least Rank 1 and gather all the items required to start the quest, then begin the LightCaster Quest. Accept Aranx’s LightCaster Class quest to begin (Level 80+ required, at least 1 rank in LightMage required and the items listed below)**
- Complete the quest to unlock the LightCaster Class.
Rank up your LightCaster Class and enjoy!
** The LightCaster Class quest can be found by clicking ‘Shops’ and then ‘LightCaster Class’ on Aranx in /celestialrealm.

Now that the how is out of the way, here is the what!
(Armor art and skill animations match LightCaster)
Auto Attack (1)
Double click a monster to start Auto Attacking it. This is a basic attack, taught to all adventurers. Damage dealt is based on your weapon damage.
Light Beacon (2)
Cast down an elemental light beacon upon the target. Does lite damage and applies In The Beacon increasing the amount of damage your opponent takes by 2% per stack and lasts 10 seconds if not re-stacked. (Stacks up to 50 times)
Light Beam (3)
Beam your opponent with a ball of pure light. Deals significant damage that is guaranteed to hit but cannot crit. Each hit applies a stack of Blinding Light which decreases your opponent's chance to hit by 5% per stack and lasts 12 seconds if not restacked. Maxes out at 2 stacks.
Casts a net of light upon your allies. Heals for 300% spell damage to up to 6 allies and applies Lumen which increases damage, crit damage, crit chance, hit chance, dodge chance, haste and damage resistance all by 8% for 12 seconds. Cannot stack.
Seared by the Light (5)
You focus the power of the entire sun on a single point. Does a large amount of damage on hit then deals 400% damage over 10 seconds.
Bright Mind (p1)
Increases Intellect by 8%
Light Speed (p2)
Increases Haste by 8%
Power of the Light (p3)
Increases all damage done by 10%
All in all, this is a solid single target mixed healing/dps class with a decent group buff. It doesn’t have that absolutely busted well rounded good-at-everything-ness that LightCaster has but it will hold you over for pretty much any non-major boss fight in the game. Also, pro-tip, LightMage and LightCaster's auras are different so you can stack LightMage's Lumen with LightCaster's Illuminated!
