      Wizard and Mage are synonyms, referring to someone who learns magic through study. Sorcerors gain magic naturally, either as the result of their bloodline, or a random occurrence. Warlocks gain magic through an infernal pact with some kind of devil or demon. Battlemage is more-or-less a heavily armored mage that still primarily focuses on casting, and a Spellsword mixes weapon skills with a limited suite of spells.

        Sez dungeons and dragons, which is a, but not THE not the template for fantasy - the names wizard, mage, sorcerer, warlock literally just mean 'nerd with magic', you can flavour it how you like. Battlemage is the same nerd that also battles and we presume spellsword has a sword

      that's right, they called them "fighting man" because they were men who fought.

    Because some gays need magic to win their battles like a bunch of pussies. Might as well be a Rouge slinking around in the dark afraid of confrontation. Real warriors need only their strength and skill of arms to achieve victory.

    Reminds me of homosexuals arguing about how their porn tags deserve or don't deserve special distinctions.
    >futa means no balls
    >no futa can be full package
    >that's a dickgirl, not a futa!
    >same thing!
    >NO! You're thinking shemales
    >Uhm, excuse me, but ふたなり does not mean troon, it's essentially a third sex
    >Poison is my waifu
    >shut the frick up trannies!

    The distinctions exist in settings to help people understand differences between styles, school, or methods of magic but these are in no way, shape, or form uniform across all fictional settings, and no setting is so ubiquitous to be considered the gold standard. There are plenty of fictional settings where all of the terms would be considered interchangeable, and plenty of settings where there are either minute or remarkable differences. Stop getting so hung up on the idea that the story/setting you like is the truth, and that everything else is wrong. It's all made up. It can be anything you want. If I want to introduce a new kind of magic caster in my story called a coffeemancer who is to say I'm wrong?

    As much as Diablo 3 sucked, I'm so fricking happy they gave us Witch Doctor. I was starting to worry that they where also just going to name it shaman as well.

    Meanwhile in real life, a warlock is just a male witch. Both are satanic, evil magicians. The first two aren't evil, but I'm not sure about sorcerors. Probably a gender neutral term for either a witch or a warlock. Last two are definitely an rpg invention. All are magicians, to be clear.

      Mage comes from Magi which used to mean just a Zoroastrian priest and spread in west of Persia to mean any weird mystics. Wizard comes from old Norse/Germanic words for male sages and wise men and it had a mostly positive connotation. No idea about origin of sorcerer/sorcery and too lazy to google.
