Well - my run through with a Mage turned out to be a lot tougher than it was with Rogue and Warrior. I found myself having to pass on a lot more items or replace a more useful ability for a less useful ability to get stat boosts or choose a better ability whilst losing stats (usually Magic ). There were many occasions when I had duplicate abilities which was frustrating.
I also found myself lacking in Speed abilities until nearer the end of the book, which I always had plenty of with the other paths. I was overloaded with Modifiers and these actually swung battles for me more often than I expected. As much as I found the going tough with the Mage, I did enjoy the different play style.
Well - I'm taking a break from EoWF for a while and I'm going to have another run through LoS and HoF and then come back to this one afterwards - I plan a 3 book marathon using a different Path in each one. Not sure which Path to use for which book yet...
Thanks for the good times!
