Battlemage Class Attributes
Strength has a value of +1 by default. Due to the fact that the Battlemage can fight enemies at short range, the added point in Strength allows you to have a bit more damage with conventional weapons and have a bit more Physical Armor for that extra oomph.
Intelligence also has a value of +1. Melee Weapons and Magic are both equally utilized by the Battlemage so this allows you to be effective in both. Additional Intelligence also increases your Magic Armor.
Constitution has a value of +1 as well which will always come in handy.

Best Races for the Battlemage
The Elf race and the Human race has no predispositions on the Battlemage so they are not really optimal for this class. You can try them but it will probably be a waste of your time.
Dwarf has a moderate predisposition to this class and its passive bonus to strength is a really useful addition to your arsenal. However, the balance in using abilities will be slightly off when using this class.
Lizard is really good with a high predisposition towards the Battlemage. Although the class cannot be used to its full potential, the innate abilities of the Lizard will allow you to get the results that you need with the Battlemage.
