I quit playing my mages ages ago. The failure rate on spells is a joke. Paladins are my new favorite.

Tuka :cool:

pvm is unbalanced in the player's favor. Poor AI is no excuse to nerf pvm.

The only mage template I've enjoyed playing is a tamer mage... mostly because you don't have that problem of fizzling when you fight other mages. Other than that, yes it sometimes seems nearly impossible to get a spell of while they're casting.

You only lose physical resist.

There is nothing wrong with Mages in PvM. If there seems to be a problem, I can assure you, it has nothing to do with anything in-game.

Thanks again Maddux!

draken you are correct. You take a -2 penalty to fc with the spell protection on. So if you had 6/2 casting without protection you would have 6/0 with protection. That does mean the spells take longer to cast. Best way around that is to use the higher end spells as the negative casting will not affect them as much. So use that flame strike instead of the fireball :)
