I'm a bit hooped
My character was doing just fine in DKS until I installed the latest patch to counter a huge bug with invisible/non-attacking enemies, and now the game is so difficult my poor character can't do anything. I've been reloading non-stop since I installed the patch, and I'm at level 30.
Trouble is, I made a mage, but my build and skill combination is obviously all wrong to survive now. My stats are mage-based so I can't switch my skills over to archery or fighter. I'm really in trouble, here.
What skill set should I have for a mage? And what armour?
Right now I have about 45 in vitality, 45 in Spirit, 25 STR, 10 or so dex, 45 in Intel.
10 Magic Missile, 9 Fireball, 4 Firewall, 9 or so in Regen (which is useless in combat; should have gone with the Healing spell instead) and then of course Mindread, Lockpick level 5 and a couple of levels of Retribution.
My armour is kind of a mish-mash because I've only found parts of sets.
At level 30 the Fortresses are hopeless, no chance at all except for knocking out the Ballistae and other Towers, and I can't even do the High Hall quest for the Well, which was easy last time. Thsi character now dies if more than one enemy attacks at the same time, period.
