Haha. I'm probly gonna start using mage too when i help out my friend when i give him his copy because i got a staff that has splash potion and attack up 3. Figured i need the healing trophy and it helps him so why not lol. Haven't used a mage yet so idk what its like.
Mages are fancy that's for sure I reccommend using Grendel with heretic skill card. It will help you ALOT against bosses and weaker enemies. It won't really help you with monsters like Raydric or Einhanjar thou But, u should be okay if youre playing with friends
After everything I read about this mission, I have to say I am proud of myself for beating this on the first try as a hammersmith. I just smashed his shoulders and went to town on his face. He killed me once, but that was from the mistake of attacking his face while his shoulders were up.
