The Knight-Incantor is a gifted stormcaller, able to summon hurricane winds and gales of mystical energy from the firmament to smite those who cannot be slain by conventional weapons. Those who ignite a Knight-Incantor's wrath soon find themselves battling against a living tempest.[2a]
The Knights-Incantor of the Sacrosanct Chambers are second only to the Lord-Arcanums in rank, and these mages often lead brotherhoods in the absence of the chamber's commander. With their rods of office, the Knights-Incantor can channel the energy of the storm into a raging hurricane, or send crackling bolts of arcane power to smite those who would defy Sigmar's will. Many carry scrolls imbued with potent void magic, relics able to dispel the hostile emanations or baleful spells of the fiends they face in battle. But of all their powers, it is the Knight-Incantor's ability to call down the storm with their voice that is their foremost tool.[2a]
When attending the Anvil of the Apotheosis, the Knight-Incantor sings the music of the spheres, voice splitting, overlapping and winding into several celestial melodies the better to calm and reorient the souls that undergo the transformation into a Stormcast Eternal. That voice can also be used as a powerful weapon. With a rising chant, the Knight-Incantor draws in motes of magic, marshalling celestial power from a zephyr into a howling gale that blasts their enemies across the battlefield. With a cry of exultation, the storm-mage sets loose a shock of lightning, or summons a downpour of freezing hail to douse the fires of anarchy.[2a]
Such is the Knight-Incantors' power over the arcane they can even sing a refrain that draws spiritual energy toward them, which they capture in a vial carried at the waist. In times of great need the Knight-Incantor can hurl one of these spirit flasks into the midst of the foe, there to shatter with a thunderous explosion that sets loose a frenzied storm-spirit. Those nearby are ravaged by wild celestial energies - be they friend or foe.[2a]
