Well met, Elliot, even tho they are so one-sided, would they not be useful to a thief, or a mage as added "backup" <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/badsmile2.gif" alt="" />
Well met indeed, Jurak <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
I'm not sure about a thief, but a mage certainly doesn't need them at all. All a mage really needs is the Alchemy skill at level one and a steady supply of potions.
After that, it's really a 'none shall stand' scenario.
I generally prefer playing warriors, but my Sorceress went through the game without having any trouble with anything except Josephina the first time. The DOL didn't even manage to cover half the distance to her.
Mages need no assistance <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
