New Premium Module: Tyrants of the Moonsea! Read More
I have never played as a wild mage and since there were no wild mages previous to bgee this is my first time playing through the game using that class of character. I was worried at first at all the hate people were pouring onto wild mages on these forums...I thought Neera would suck horribly but I am here to tell you about a very different experience I've had so far.
The first wild thing to happen was when I cast nahals reckless whatever on that ogre with the belt fetish. Tried for a chaotic orb and ended up polymorphing the ogre into a wolf...I laughed my ass off. The second time was in the nashkel mines fighting Molahey, I wanted to cast sleep or some aoe spell to keep the kobolds and skeletons off me, I don't remember which spell exactly but instead a horde of squirrels appeared at my feet. I had to pause the game cause I was laughing so hard. How could you not love that chaos?! It is so awesome, I love not knowing what my next wild surge will be. Why so much hate for wild mages?
Anyway, I want to hear about your wild surge stories, I'm loving it so far. Granted I haven't had any horrible surges yet that wipe my whole party but so what if I do, I'll just reload, no big deal.
