Yup, they're all pretty good. Make a fine warrior with that lot.
Augment damage is debateable but if you have the spare points then go for it.

I got bored and had 23 scorpion traps once, and 2 levels in deadly gift, so I went into the trolls cave (the one you have to kill the king to finish a quest) and went crazy with deadly gift. It was funny

lol. Totally overpowered skill though. Actually if you play a mage and run through the troll cave with a burning wall on that can be rather cool too.

My favorite skills are alchemy, ressurect and aura of command (even though aura of command is bugged)...

Anyway, from that list, I'd say only wisdom is kindof useless... It just doesn't give enough extra experience to be worth it. If you strt the game with upgrading the wisdom skill, then at the end of the game, you might end up at the most 3 levels higher than you would without it. I just don't think it's worth the 5 skillpoints, but I guess that's just a personal opinion.

Augment Defence is good for any class, but mostly Mage I think, because once the enemy gets too close, then they'll need all the defence they can get. Spells won't help them there anymore. (Except for that shield spell perhaps...)

Freeze is cool, I like freeze.

Deadly gift is a really nice skill, but the scorpions are 10 times stronger than they should be...

Just my opinions, of course

Deadly Gift?

So overpowered it makes the game boring. I never use it.

Wisdom?

Makes very little functional difference due to the way the EXP system works. Useless.

Spiritual Damage?

Also a waste of time. Occurs too infrequently, and will be resisted by just about everything you want it to work on.


Augment Defense? Sword Mastery? Augment Offense?

All very useful for a Warrior. Most of the best weapons in the game are swords, and anything that means you attack faster, do more damage or take less damage is good.


Freeze?

Useful, if very overpowered when it occurs on a weapon.


Stun?

Also a waste of time, as it will never occur when you need it, and will be resisted by everything you care about stunning anyway.

Tovi, If you're REALLY good as a mage, most monsters won't GET close to you

Gandalf is right.

And if they do get close enough to attack your Shield/Magic Shield combo, their chance of actually getting to damage you is almost zero.

Augment Defence has no real value to a Mage.

Even the strongest mage has to start somewhere... You can't be a great wizard from the start.
