    Can you imagine you're in the thick of battle and decide to cast a spell. The whole just stand there and chant or whatever kinda leaves you open to dying.

    You can't see that image because you suck :p

    The two classes contrast way too much, they focus on entriely different things. It's like trying to fire a sword using a bow, what's the point?

    That's what I mean by keeping your wits about you when you're fighting. I would not suddenly cast a spell in that kind of situation. :p I'd mebbe cast one if I had them staggering several yards away from me. Then I might (depending on the rest of the situation) cast a quick spell.

    You might do that...only because you suck :p :D

    What do you mean ouch...I was just telling you that's what a type of person a Fighter-mage is, A person who tries to launch a sword using a bow.

    A Mage's forte is being able to cast strong spells, which you can't really use since if you are a fighter you're in the thick of secondly. A Fighter's forte is hacking up stuff upclose, so if you're casting spells, what's the point of being a fighter?

    Practicing in both classes is a waste of time, and uneconomical in a fighting point of view.

    ....
    I was pointing out that only people who think Fighter Mages are useful would do that.

    Yeah I think a mage-fighter wouldn't be a good idea, accept for soloing... than it would probably be the best choice (if the magic side had acess to healing spells).
    Back to the origional question, I would be a pure mage. I am never anything else anymore, I just love weak little mages in soft robes that ultimately kick ass... When I still played DnD I could take the whole party using abstract spells. Again, Raistlin is my idol :p

    How can there be so little on the cleric... I mean think how cool it would be to like reach level 15 (In DND terms.) and then be able to cast "true ressurection" on anybody who dies.

    A actually dislike the concept of classes; it's just an ordening created by some games to be able to make a game understandable. But that aside...

    I would like to be a Druid - but I'd prolly not be. Druidism takes patience and it's sort of a backward community. Progression is frowned upon. I think I would make a decent Alchemist, which is sort of perpendicular to the Druid. Pretty shady, either way.

    Ow, and for whoever thinks the Paladin is "good", then I would like to note that the self-righteousness that comes with the job sort of nullifies any and indeed all good it spreads. :)

    Not all Paladins are self-righteous, actually most aren't. It is usually the much older and higher up paladins who get a bit too up-themselves.

    Kenderjunk: well...you could be awesome and not die?

    heheheh... if most paladins are not selfrighteous, and you say that it's only limited to the older and rankier paladins... Should I then conclude that the average life expectancy of a Paladin is erm... short? Good fighters... :rolleyes:

    The problem is that a self-acclaimed separation of wrong and right almost invertably clashes with reality. Modern politics have several of those examples, though I am not going to mention them. Ideals can lead astray when clung to too strong or desperately.

    If I may suggest, the only good that remains is that of the Druid, for staying pure and, generally, not taking sides, other then against evil?

    All Druids stay neutral? Never heard of that. All beings are prone to taking sides.

    In life, we naturally make judgements that are considered wrong by some, and right by others. We cannot truly define what is right or wrong, but usually there is a general agreement which is what most Paladins stick with. I.e. throw murderers in jail...or execute them. Do not steal. Do not rape women, etc.

    Plus its fantasy, all Paladins are nice :D
