Merlin has high damage and good crowd control. But Marlin’s energy source is low and depletes quickly so you need to calculate carefully before making combos skills.
Merlin builds up Overload each time he casts a spell. Merlin will add lightning to his subsequent basic strike, causing more damage to the initial enemy.
Skill 1: Eclipse (Radiate/Frostbolt)
Merlin summons a celestial energy orb that expands as it moves, causing damage every 0.4 seconds and leaving a mark on enemies it hits. If they remain inside Eclipse’s outside range, enemies who have been marked suffer additional damage. (For more details, switch to Fire/Ice stance.)
Skill 2: Vortex (Dragonfire/Blizzard)
Merlin places an arcane energy field at a specific spot. After a brief pause, the vortex begins to hurt enemies and draw them toward its center. (For more details, switch to Fire/Ice stance.)
Skill 3: Flicker
Merlin moves swiftly in front of him, teleporting a short distance.
Ultimate: Elemental Mastery
In the pose he has tuned into right now, Merlin taps into his inner potential and bursts with energy. Merlin can then decide which attitude to adopt next throughout this time. The explosion culminates in a collapse inside itself. Both the explosion and the implosion deliver damage to opponents, although the consequences vary based on which stance’s energy is striking them.
