My multiclassing continues with its own adventures.
Was levelling Druid - the school I like so much. As usuall, I go for golems and after some time of killing - I reached level 20. It was time for spiritist.
To be frank, I expected more of that school. Some offensive abilities or at least -some defense. And guess what: only one free spell (training spirit bolt; usefull only against low level monsters) and some very light defense abilities. I spent first 10 levels by killing poor lvl.4 Magots and using the crystals they dropped. Easy and not too boring job. Later, I went to kill Granite golems.
And there the fun began. I bought some spells and gained some new abilities: Theft of Life and Soul link. Theft of life does exactly what it is named for: if hits, steals life from enemy and gives to caster. Soul link works better: does damage and steals some health. However, they hit monsters in a rare occasion, so were not too usefull. I have also tried some new spells, like "Fist of nature" - a giant stone floating above target and then crushing it. Good against weaker targets, but almost did not work against stronger ones.
Yes, I killed golems. They were rather easy prey, even when I had to fight 2 or 3 of them...but only due to ability to use some Druid spells.
At the end of the day I was level 15 Spiritist and got tired from grinding. Killing without real offense or defense was not fun. If only life stealing spells worked with 50% probability - it would be interesting. All I want right now - is to finish last few levels and go for Shaman.
What I do expect from Shaman is interesting tactic: first strip enemy off enemy enhancements, then cast all curses you have...and only then engage in melee combat with weakened enemy. This was what some Shamans did to me earlier. This is what I would do with them.
It does not mean disappointment in Istaria. School may be boring at some level (but maybe later it would be interesting). Being Druid was very fun for me; being Mage - interesting, although a bit hard against stronger monsters (but then, Mage can use Fire bomb spell and virtually spam enemy with explosions).
Today it is maintainence day in Istaria - would have a little play, but maybe will finish that Spiritist...
