What is Tempest in Spellbreak?
Tempest is one of the six playable schools of magic in Spellbreak. The Tempest is a high-mobility, high-aggression class that excels in being on the move, flying through the map using their mobility-focused skillsets. They specialize in dealing high amounts of damage while staying out-of-reach of their enemies.
A Tempest main is a must in every squad, as each teamfight presents an opportunity for the Tempest to harass and finish off enemy targets, while dancing through the battlefield with ease. They’re great in CQB and can be dangerous when left alone, thanks to how its spells interact with others.

Tempest in Spellbreak: Spells and Sorceries
The Tempest starts with a Wind Gauntlet. It is one of the toughest classes to master, but also one of the most annoying to deal with for enemies.
Tornado is the sorcery skill for the Wind Gauntlet. It conjures a tornado that pulls enemies in towards the middle, and pulls airborne opponents harder. The caster can be pulled in if you haven’t unlocked Updraft yet.
These are the Tempest class’ skills:
Your primary attack is the Wind Shear, which sends blades of wind towards your enemies at a fast rate. It has one of the highest fire rates in the game, but also the lowest damage.
It interacts with a lot of spells and even counters some. We’ll get into that later.
Firing your Wind Shear on the ground or a wall will boost you into a Wind Jump, your bread and butter as Tempest. Can be combined to chain movement through the map. The closer you are to the surface, the farther you’re launched. Mana recharge delay is increased while Wind Jumping.
Makes you immune to squad Tornadoes. Also lets you use the Tornado sorcery to launch yourself in the air, giving you more mobility.
Increases your spell damage by 10% every second you are in midair, with a maximum of a 30% increase. This skill is what really makes the Tempest one of the deadliest classes in Spellbreak.
Reduces cooldown for sorceries while in the air by -100%.

Tornadoes are electrified when a Lightning Bolt is fired through it, shocking players on impact.

Change the trajectory of Boulderfall slightly, deflecting it or extending its range.
Spellbreak Tempest Spell Combos
To maximize your damage as Tempest, you need to make good use of the Tornado spell by combining it with different elements, particularly Fire, Toxic, and Lightning.
Tornado + Toxic
Firing poison into a Tornado will turn it into a Toxic Tornado that pulls enemies in, dealing corrosive damage.
Tornado + Lightning
Shooting a lightning bolt into a tornado turns it into a lightning storm, pulling enemies in and dealing continuous lightning damage.
Tornado + Fire
Sending a fireball through a tornado will turn it into a fire tornado, pulling enemies in and dealing fire damage over time.
