I recently returned to the game after about a decade away. I level up many of the classes to try them out. I also leveled the 3 tradeskills to give the classes expert skills. Once they got 16 I took each one to wailing caves. When trying to kill the heroics(lvl 14) in there my assassin does it really easily , so does my dirge which is a support class. I have also tried illusionist, defiler, and necro. the only one that does less damage than the wizard is the defiler. When I took the wizard in the caves he can't kill anything. He dies in about 3 hits and his damage is just pathetic. The wizard spells have long cast times but do less damage than the scout skills which go off almost instantly. Also they seem to have taken 1/2 the damage of the wizards nukes and turned them into a dot portion which I don't understand at all. Whatever the reason it makes the wizard feel very weak. I mained a wizard on eq1 for many years so maybe I got a bit spoiled. To me though this wizard feels like a glass cannon with no cannon. Does it ever get better?
