Aerotheurge skills in Divinity: Original Sin 2 are Intelligence-based, allowing the player to deal air damage. These skills allow players to do a variety of things, from teleporting and stunning enemies to giving allies shields and status effects. These skills are generally reliable because few enemies have Air Resistance. Compared to other schools, Aerotheurge provides players with many skills to counter terrain disadvantages, high mobility,  and high direct damage output. This school provides few ways to crowd control, but when combined with Hydrosophist will give players ability to a strong but unreliable stun effect.

      So pyro increase the burning DOT, goe increases armour buffs and poison dot, hydro does healing amount and magic armour buffs. Why would i put points into this above the skill requirement (which im probs getting from gear), i can just rely on my scale with 40 intelligence for +150% instead of the +50% or the whole point that this is never really resisted so its strong enough?

        Flesh sacrifice, peace of mind, adrenaline, apotheosis, rain, skin graft, flesh sacrifice again, adrenaline again, thunderstorm, chain lightning. Elf lone wolf max aero, scoundrel, two handed, hot head, savage sortilege. Everybody dies

          Magic feels underwhelming whenever you spread too thin so plan for two /three main magic schools you will spec in and focus on one of them , then any becomes viable, some of them combo like hydro and aero but as of now on definitive edition hydro is the weakest damage school and paired with aerotheurge just doesn't do as well as pyro wtt geomancy which oneshots enemies during one turn. At least it's not the lolrandom goddamn geomancy which pairs best with your warriors and necromancers because "muh resised by physical" statuses it inflicts.

            FYI, as of 6/Jul/2020, the Tornado icon on the Aerothurge Skills Page isn't clickable (at least for me)--only the name is, if you want to access the Tornado page. Maybe it just needs a link attached. :)

              With Aero, I lack more air magic and a little more variety in the magic. Aero felt kind of boring and didn't look too good. I would have liked more synergies with fire. So a burning place, which you can then chase with a wind spell as a flame wave a few meters over the map and the enemies. Or use a whirlwind to make a burning area a pillar of fire for a few rounds, which slowly moves across the battlefield and causes severe fire damage. Something like that. Aero was too unpleasant for me .. but I am not the flash type either.

                Make these tables sortable or stop being the first result on Google. Every single Fextralife wiki is horribly formatted or doesn't have complete information. Stop wasting my time.

                  i am a total noob but is this page up to date? i am creating a character right now and even though she has 2 points in aero, i can only choose out of 4 skills, 2 of which are pretty similar.

                    Not getting why so many people say this skill set is boring... what could possibly be boring about going Palapatine on your enemies? Perfect skill set for those that want to role play as an evil character ready to stab his “friends” in the back to achieve godhood.

                      Aero and Hydro have always been support based skills because of the disables. They were never meant for raw dmg. But if you plan around it you can do insane dmg even on Honor. I mean, all you should care about is stripping the enemies armor in one turn then casting rain skill/scroll for stunning, if you can't even do that then you need better gear at current lvl ( Start stacking up that int and scoundrel ). They are not like a mine pyro which are meant for one shotting enemies in a single turn.

                        Kids love to pretend Aero is still the best, simply because it started out blatantly overpowered. News Flash: check the patch notes. Pyro and Geo does more damage than Aero + Hydro, doesn't get punished by Perseverance or Indomitable, and still has huge defensive options with Geo for physical armor regen + (Living Armor + Pyro's massive damage) Pyro for magic armor regen. Yes, Aero and Hydro do still work -- and work well. But to pretend that Geo and Pyro are playing second fiddle is ass-backwards. Pyro and Geo are kings, Aero and Hydro are princes.

                          The auras would be useful if they were a permanent effect like on some of the special enemies. Obviously evasion would be the exception because it would be too cheesy.

                            I'm not gonna act like it's the best just because stunning and teleporting is so strong. Because it's not. This skill set cannot succeed without the help of another tree. Using lightning as a primary means of attack? NOPE! Too few, options. It's best for close range and even then it's not safe. While it's supportive and defensive abilities are to die for, it's attacking options have a disparity in usefulness. It's either so good you'd be stupid not to use it, or so much of a bad idea, why did you even bother. There is NO in between.

                              man aerotheurge got some of the best skill in the game but it also have the worse skill in the game . i do wish it got more attack spell

                              • What do you mean I just crit everything around me for 10k and everything that's still standing is slowly choking and losing magic armor? PSSSSSSSSSH. One of if not my favorite spell line for damage and utility, I've always gone for air magic when using spells if I could and this game does not let me down when it comes to doing the skills right.

                                  I wonder why there is no Electric Ray either, considering one of the Eternal Guardians (blue golems) uses it on Arx if you take the sword in the stone.

                                    Why the noticeable lack wind magic compared to lightning? Seems like big missed opportunity...

                                    Wind wall : more range on projectiles passing through it one way, shortens or blocks projectiles going the other way.
                                    A Skill to disperse fields / gases like in DOA 1.
                                    Tornado Punch to knock people back.
