We took a week off due to a busy week last week, but we're back on track. This Friday and next we'll have five more questions and answers with Victor Watcher and D&D Online team.
| MMORPG.com: Sorcerers and Wizards are very similar classes. Both, for example, are Arcane spellcasters. In Dungeons and Dragons 3.5e, wizards must memorize their spells while sorcerers do not. How will this be handled in DDO?
Victor Watcher: The acquisition of spells is unchanged from the D&D 3.5 Core Rules. Sorcerers select their spells as their characters advance, and are always limited to that set of spells. Wizards are able to prepare a number of spells based on their level before each adventure, selecting anything that they have in their spellbook.
The main difference between the two classes that differs from pen and paper D&D is in the number of spells each class can cast. Instead of the spells per day system, we use the spell points system, under which a Sorcerer can cast more spells before resting than a Wizard.
