The Wizard is a playable character class in the MMORPG EverQuest Next. The Wizard is a magic using class and applies primarily elemental damage, such as fire, radiance and shadow damage types. Wizards start off with 2 movement ability slots, 1 offensive ability slot and 1 defensive ability slot. The released spells for wizards include only five, Upheaval, Arcane barrage, Vortex, Stasis and Chromosphere.

Each spell has a unique effect and is generally only wholly effective when used in the proper situations. Upheaval does AOE (area of effect damage to opponents it hits as well as causes stun and destroys certain types of terrain. Upheaval is a targeted area of effect spell which means you can control where it is cast. Arcane Barrage is a basic spell and the starting offensive spell for every wizard class character in Everquest Next. Vortex is a close range spell which is best used defensively as it pulls enemies into the small area of effect and transports the caster to a safe distance. Stasis casts stun and root on enemies but deals no damage whereas Chromosphere does a large amount of damage to a single target.
