In my opinion.. I think that personally mages should have extremly
powerful and useful spells at their disposal, why else does a person
make a high mind character? Not to run around hack and slashing mobs
but to use their magic with one other specific fighting skill
during combat. So I feel that spells should be much more useful,
not really stun but we should have more useful damage spells
and such but we should also have major penalties on fighting.
Its pretty ridiculous that I can solo level 50 mobs at level 35+
with only 100 con, and a heal spell. I can either warcry/flee
till I get a para or I can fight while flamestriking, yet the
warcry/flee method is easier and usually works better. In my
opinion thats ridiculous.
Suggestion... why not have mages be unable to carry shields, or
not wear all 3 held slots. Not to hack on how unrealistic it is
but you cant really shoot flames outta your fingers while wearing
gloves, carrying a staff and two other items, and holding a shield.
Granted the enchant wands or whatever is gonna be great, but I just
think that we shouldnt be good fighters without spells, and as
it is.. even with 100 mind spells, they usually arent as good as
one good fighting skill. If you dont already know, most mobs have
100 mind, so I cant stun them, hence the flamestriking.
just a thought on the current system..

This should change come tuesday. The combat system changes,
(especially making AC more important), will make mages spells
that always hit relatively more powerful, and the damaging
spells are being changed some too, to make them a little
more dependant on mind to reward the high-mind mage, so this
particular problem should be somewhat alleviated by the changes.

along with spells being more powerful, 3rd circle should
be restricted to basic weapons training and 2nd circle

Feh! I think magic peoples have a hard enough time as it is. Why make
it more difficult for them to fight? Having created several mages I
can say that it's awfully hard work. Restricting 3rd circle to basic
weapon training would make it impossible ;-p.

What Ulric? "not wear all 3 held slots."
Heck, that's what give alot of mages their 100mana.
