Boom Barrel

The War Mage has a wide variety of traps at his disposal when defending the rifts. These traps, as well as weapons and guardians, will be what is used to stop the orcs from reaching the Rift. Some traps are permanent, others are one use only, some will be placed on the ground while others will need a place on a wall or ceiling.
