Theurgists carry with them the ability to create their own small armies through the summoning of elemental creatures, commonly referred to as "pets." The Theurgist can deal direct damage on the enemy as well as pummel him with a small army of elementals. Summoning elementals one after the other, Theurgists hit their enemies from all sides, thus confusing them in the heat of battle.
They have the ability to buff several aspects of their realm-mates. Hasting weapons and increasing the damage done by each swing are two of the ways that Theurgists add to a group's buffing efforts. Theurgists who specialize in earth are often sought out for their bladeturn spell, which helps absorb several swings from enemy weapons and arrows.
