Arbiter (Mage 3.0 Soul)

Mage 3.0 Soul Arbiter

Img Source: Trion Worlds

The Arbiter is the new 2.7 Soul for Mages. It is a Tank soul that uses Water and Air-based abilities with magical damage mitigation to tank.

Obtained: “Dream Soul Pack” from Rift Store -> Services for 5,000 Credits (4,500 for Patrons). The Dream Soul Pack provides you with the Liberator, Physician, Arbiter and Oracle souls, applied account-wide.


The Arbiter, Voradrin, is a Runemaster dwarf who is also the librarian and protector of an out-of-the-way library known as the Runic Athenaeum.

It is unknown whether he comes from an alternate reality as he is present (on the PTS) in the Runic Athenaeum; although he does seem to belong to a different time period (the past).

He studied a variety of books and scrolls given to him by Bahralt – allowing him to lead a path that was different from his other Mage brethren – one that uses magic to protect.

You can still find and interact with him in the Runic Athenaeum in Moonshade Highlands where he will provide you with various soul- and lore-based quests.

More information about the lore of the Arbiter can be found on the RIFT website here.

Soul Abilities

The new Mage soul – Arbiter – is a Tanking soul that uses ice shields, magical mitigation spells and taunts with storm-based abilities.

  • Magelo has a Soul tree builder for the Arbiter soul (and other 2.7 souls) here.
  • A list of Soul Abilities can be found at Magelo.


Seatin has a first look at the Arbiter soul below:

Again, reminder that everything is subject to change. Any linked information may become outdated.


The earlier alpha testers have begun setting up guides for the new souls. As the souls are in-flux, any changes made to the souls between now and the time the guides are written may cause the guides to be out-dated. However, these should hopefully give a fair idea of how the souls work. Below are links to any guides players have made in relation to the new souls.
