Help with Fire vs Fire
« on: November 21, 2014, 05:25:05 AM »
So i justed started to play with Fire  :)

Trying a Fire Wizard instead of my usual Air Wizard.

In a recent game on OCTGN, we started talking about what i should do vs. Flame Immune creatures and anti-flame spellbooks in general.

Im intrested in general advice, and if you have any relevant links, from earlier post/discussion, id really like if you to post them here.

From my Current spellbook:

Creatures:
Adramelech, Lord of FireGargoyle Sentry    x 2

Attack spells:
Acid Ball
Fireball x 2
Flameblast x 2
Jet Stream
Ring of Fire
Armor removal:
Dissolve
Explode
Thats it. (Wall of Fire + Force Push)

Here are the changes im considering:

Remove?                                                         

1.  Gargoyle Sentry
2.  Wall of Fire
3.  Bull Endurance
4.  Mana Crystal
5.  Retaliate
6.  Vampirism
7.  Hand of Bim-Shalla
8.  Eagleclaw Boots
9.  Teleport
10. Jet Stream

Replace with?:

1.  Devouring Jelly
2&3  Gorgon Archer (or Hurl Boulder/Hydra)
4.  ?
5.  Dissolve
6.  Dissolve
Now it really Hurts.I wanna Im going to remove 1 of 7-11 (HoB, Eagle Boots, Tele, Jet S) for 1 Hurl Boulder
I might remove the Lord himself Adramelech, Lord of Fire but i do want a creature with a good Flame Attack. (my book suffers from the 10 point cost)

If Fire Elemental comes out thats "only" 6 spellpoints, so thats a good possibility.

Flaming Hellion or Goblin Alchemist unfortunately are not Fire School. So they are not really good options (but i do like them)

I want to burn people, but if they play Adramelech, Lord of Fire id like not to consede immediately  ;)

Should this have been posted in Strategy and Tactics? (feel free to move)

Hi Biblofilter,

Take a look the "The Philosophy of Fire" posted by Alexander West: http://forum.arcanewonders.com/index.php?topic=13687. You might find it interesting if you are looking for general advice.

Also, Wizard's Tower is a great arcane spell that could be added to your spellbook. Specially, if you want to play with some Fireball or Flameblast.
