A little help with mage in G2 NotR?
I've passed Gothic 2 NotR as a warrior 1 handed and 2 handed and I've come to 3rd chapter with archer and quit cause it was too easy(literally lol) so now I want a challenge and start playing with a mage. Unfortunately, I have very bad memories of playing as a mage cause first time I played Gothic 2 NotR I played as a mage and screwed up, I remember the firebolt spell was a huge disappointment, me being low leveled and weak so I lost the will to play and I started over as a warrior.
Any advice on how to build, what to put points in, what I should(or shouldn't do) etc not to fuck myself up? And should I even learn str/1 or 2 handed or can I play as a pure mage?
I don't mind a big challenge if the reward is big too.
Magician in notr is a challenge, at the beginning though, as of later you become the most OP class (that is if you play your game well)
Pure mage is even harder at the beginning but later on you are stronger than a "battlemage"
Mana, language (keep those tablets until you reach around 90 mana), alchemy (potions after 90 mana), pray every day (guildless, then novice and then as a mage), don't use claw of beliar (useless IMO)
as a battle mage: you could invest some LP into str + 1h (fighter should be enough)
Yeah, pure mage is tough. The problem is surviving until you can become a magician without either STR or DEX. I usually go for DEX and a little bow at the beginning but then it's too tempting to fall back on archery whenever things get a little hard up to about level 20 and then you're not a pure mage anymore.
I'm just starting a new game so maybe I'll try a branch on my level 2 character to see if it's possible without any DEX or STR. I've always been curious about that but haven't actually tried it because I've felt it would be too difficult.
Thanks for help, I think I'm going pure mage(even tho its gonna be hard). I already found some other useful info, like if you give all old stone tablets to Vatras at once he gives you a huge amount of xp and that you can transform into Dragon Snapper and clear half the island lol.

I didn't find one thing however. About shrines, if I pray as guildless and get 20 mana, when I pray as a novice/mage will I gain 20 mana again?
about Vatras and stone tablets:
You won't get exp but mana (number of tablets = mana gained) - so keep those tablets till, hmm chapter 4?
Sounds good. At what level did you go to the Monastery?
You can become a member of the Ring with armor but not an actual Water mage. (with robes)
I haven't been able to play for the last few days but, yes, I do intend to try and I appreciate the offer of advice.

Level 5 sounds about right. As soon as I'm strong enough to get Daron's statuette I'll head to the Monastery and try to make up some XP before going into Ch2.
Did you apprentice with anyone?
I apprenticed with Constantino but I don't give him Dark Mushrooms cause of bonus mana, I only give him Digger meat.

I didn't do Bosper's mission because I didn't want to spend 5 LP on skinning so I found an orc weapon for Harrad in a bandit cave when you go left from the second town entrance.
Who can teach me to make Elixir of Spirit(for +5 mana)? Do I need to know to make all other mana potions before I can learn to do it or is it separated?
Sagitta and Neoras. You need to spend 19 LP.
Are you familiar with this site? All the info you need.
If you use the Engish version, be careful because there are a few errors.
@Rattamatha, yes it's small lightning spell, since lightning spell is third circle spell along with ice lance (ooh, get ice lance!!! owns fire lizards and fire golems, easy exp)
as far as I remember it is not needed - it is different circles of magic what matters.
Zitat von MikeLitoris
one important question - what magic runes can you find during a game? I do remember but do not remember exact locations, except where Bilgot's friend found his final resting place..
When can I enter which circle of magic? I really hope that it doesn't go like this: Circle 1 - Chapter 1, Circle 2 - Chapter 2

Also, who can teach me to take tongue of fire from fire lizards?
And what about plain runestones? Can I buy them from somebody? I know I'll get 1 from Lutero after I bring him snapper claws.
