Does such an old game deserve its own thread? Probably not. But threads are free, so here we go anyways. So thanks to the LP by AaronSofaer, I've reinstalled this game yet again, and this time I'm going to get past the first city, so help me God. But I did have a couple questions. First, Aaron mentioned Alchemists as hybrids, and difficult to level. But as I understand the classes, they're a pure caster. Was that a mistype? Also, Bishops in theory seem to blow the other casters out of the water, given their ability to do, well, *everything*. How much does their slower advancement hurt in practice? For example, would I be better off having a dedicated mage rather than a bishop type character? Also, should I resist my (very strong) urge to have like 3 bishops? Finally, a bunch of guides that I'm looking at seem to recommend switching classes in very clever ways in order to... I can't quite figure it out. Maximize something something something. Should all my characters just pick a class & go with it, or is this idea of switching mid-stream worth considering?
