wasn’t interested in being a caster because I’ve always played bruiser characters, so being glass canon was not fun. When I unlocked the warrior mage class which allowed your INT to be counted as STR, it was reallly nice.
Huh, I see. The first time I’ve ever played a CRPG, I was 7, I think, and it was in English. So it was actually my sister playing and me watching, asking her “what’s going on???” all the time and just being a general nuisance. She still let me have a character though, and it was a Fighter, because I thought that having the most HP and hitting mooks in the face was the most important part.
When I grew up and started playing myself, I firmly switched to casters, and I’m still there. I initially preferred wizards for the wide range of spells, but now I like druids for the utility and flavor. I’m kinda anxious to play sorcerers because it’s so hard to pick spells that will be good for the rest of the game. Just thinking about that makes me anxious. How does anyone manage to do that?
In PnP I’ve also tried an Inquisitor, and I liked the “buff up, hit guys in the face” dynamic quite a bit. I think I’ll start moving towards non-caster types even more with age.
