Minor Spell Deflection - how effective is it?
I'm soloing as an FMT and I have imposed a 'no cosumables' rule upon myself, which means I'm not using any potions, wands or scrolls (except for scribing). It also means I can't used the Greenstone Amulet, which has always been my favourite item when fighting enemy spellcasters (it makes you pretty much invulnerable to any kind of mind magic).
So far I haven't had any trouble fighting mages (they tend to throw Horror at you and I can avert that by casting Remove Fear on myself before the fight starts) but clerics are more of a problem because I have got no defence against Rigid Thinking. I'm also worried about when I come to fight the Sirines because I have got nothing to stop their Feeblemind attacks and though, being an elf, I am 90 per cent immune to their Dire Charms I would still like to find a way to block the spell completely.
Anyway, I was wondering if Minor Spell Deflection
would help here or is there another form of defence that I am overlooking?
