Absolute Arcanist (Wizard/Sorcerer)

The ultimate mage masters both the unpredictable element of the arcane, innate in sorcerers, and the scientific element studied by wizards. Absolute arcanists are paragons of this ideal, blending the two magic styles efficaciously. While they do not benefit from a wizard's specialization nor a sorcerer's bloodline powers, absolute arcanists do learn to cast spells in two very different ways, enhancing their versatility beyond that of an ordinary individual spellcaster. As they grow in power, absolute arcanists learn new methods of utilizing metamagic. At his pinnacle, an absolute arcanist can route the energies of one spellcasting method into the other, fusing his styles to produce magic more powerful than most.
