So, I've been playing Sacred 2 through the holiday season, and still playing.
My favorite class in Sacred 2 is the dragon mage, and, I've just gotten a new one up through platinum level Octogolamus, using a Destroyers/Gust of Wind combo combined with a %life leech shuriken, plus a shield.
I started realizing that the way a shuriken plays for a caster in Sacred 2 is a lot like how a caster in Baldur's Gate plays with Melf's Minute Meteors.
I love to occasionally make a connection with Charname ideas I have for Baldur's Gate with other games I play.
So, I am thinking of maybe starting a fighter-mage in Baldur's Gate who will concentrate on darts, slings, and Melf's Minute Meteors for his primary damage dealers, as well as whatever other arcane damage he can muster up as he levels.
The obvious no-brainer choice for a Sacred 2 "dragon mage" analogue would be the Baldur's Gate "dragon disciple", but, in Sacred 2, my dragon mage is artistically defined by his trademark helmet and shield. Especially since I've included shield lore as part of his build.
So, the fighter-mage wearing helmet and using a shield seems more in line with my idea to carry my Sacred 2 toon into BG.
