Now that I know the game a little I plan to restart it tonight and... well I played it strictly with weapons so I would love to give magic a serious go so I know if im missing out on much so I have some super newbie questions in that regard:
There does not appear to be much penalty to using magic obviously other than you will have less attribute points to spend on STR and DEX so you wont be able to clobber bad guys as effectively but this still seems to come down to what weapon you are using above all else, so If I choose to play a caster with heavy knight armor the only down side is I wont be able to move/dodge as quickly right?
Secondly.. I started a Pyromancer just to test it but I didn't have time to go any further then finishing the starting area, throwing them fireballs seems awkward to me lol do you really have to lock on every time to effectively hit the small mobs? I mean it appears that I am otherwise aiming with my camera and without a cursor this is hilariously inaccurate and seems really awkward as I have to tilt it to face the sky if I am trying to hit something a bit further or above. Any tips on this would be awesome
Also do I need to first find specific weapons to try specific magics or to make them effective? so a staff to cast soul magic, some kind of talisman for fire stuff and something else for miracles? sorry I am still confused about all that coz on my previous play through I just picked up sharp things and tried every possible way of hitting bad guys with them up until now.
Stats wise: Is it wise to mix it up and have int and str so I can fall back on using my weapon if I run out of magics? or is it generally more viable to try and stack mostly magic stats and just try and find powerful weapons to help.
Lastly: what do you suggest and prefer? Soul magics? Fire Splosions or Miracles? Or should I aim to try and collect all the different caster weapons and spells!
Wow, rly hope someone has the patience to reply to all this I am sorry I made it so long didn't mean to :P I just really like this game. THANKS!!!
