For FoV, yes. I highly recommend changing your skills to include maxed mindreading at the start and once you've read the minds of most people in Aleroth, change them back. The first hour or so consists of nothing but talking to people anyway. Hell, if you're a pure mage you might even want to keep the points in it as FoV starts shoving skill books down your throat midway through and you won't really have much to spend them on.
Edit: One more thing to note, if you don't pick up mindread, your experience debt will be upwards of 200k in the beginning.
