I've never done the mage thing before. I just heard about how easy it was due to magic being overpowered blah blah blah etc. so I thought I should at least experience one run through with a mage.
So far good. The damage I'm doing is ludicrous for a low level build. I've got the Kris Blade, the Ring of Magical Sharpness, the Monk's Head Collar and also the Crescent Falchion+4 for when I only absolutely need to melee something. My level was 23 up until recently but I had to go to 29 to get four spell slots. Three slots was not enough.
I generally like to keep my SL down as low as I can and don't like 'wasting' SLs by putting them into stats not fitting to a build. Virtually everything has gone into MAG and INT apart from some VIT. I've put nothing into STR, DEX or END. I've Miralda's clothes.
Everything was going fine until 4-2...
So tell me this - HOW DO I BEAT THE GODDAMN MAGIC BEAM REAPERS?!!!!I don't have the STR for a shield and don't the DEX for a bow. I know I could simply level up and use one of those but that feels like a cop out with this build. I've tried rolling but that doesn't avoid their beams as far as I can tell.
I can't believe I can't figure this out but I can't. What can I say? I'm a total mage noob lol :oops:
