I want to start a new character (preferably evil) with an all original mixed list of characters (with one slot open for npc)

I want my main character to be a magic user, however. I am wondering which type of magic user do YOU all think is better? Sorcerer, pure mage or specialty mage?

Input and I will love you long time.

Does it please you to opress me, to spurn the work of your hands, while you smile upon the schemes of the wicked? Do you have eyes of flesh? Do you see as a mortal sees? Sometimes I feel like you want me to fail...

I think Sorceror is the best.

You cannot escape the inevitable.

Well most evil magic users for Specialty Mages are Necro.
I've heard more of evil Sorcerers than evil Mages. So I would say Sorcerer is the best pick.

Of course, evil Mages are the most feared.

It really depends on what type of character you want to play. If you want access to a WIDE array of spells (all of them,) then be a normal mage.

If you want to specialize in a school of magic as an evil wizard necromancy would probably be the most used, but really any school would be fine.

If you want lots of magical power without having to rememorize spells then a sorcerer is the way to go - remember though that you only choose a limited amount of spells to know for each level. That can lead to hard decisions at level up time.

A sorcerer with well chosen spells can be a match for almost anything.

A good combination that I discovered is...

Chill Touch
Magic Missile
Chrom. Orb
Protection From Evil
Shocking Grasp
Mirror Image
Acid Arrow
Vampiric Touch
Minor spell sequencer
Spell Thrust
Globe of invulneribility
Conjure Lesser Fire Elemental
Lower Resistance
True Sight
Chain Lightning
Invisible Stalker
Spell Turning
Finger of Death
Kelben's Warding Whip
Abid-Dalzim's Horrid Wilting

While out adventuring always remember the scouts motto "Be Prepared"
