Here's a topical question given the debate about whether mages are any good or not.

Whats your favourite spell (any class)- and why?

Anyone who has read my posts will probably know that mine is Static Shock - but whats yours?

Static shock, awesome damage. Flame arrow, so much damage.

mages:
armour, it lasts and lasts.
magic missle, it's fast and hits pretty hard
web / grease, an immobile foe is soon dead.

clerics:
raise dead - no reloads (or min. reloads)

druids:
entangle + spike stones - just stand there and die combo.

Symbol of Hopelessness hands down. Your mage could melee down the enemies once they're symbolled. Course fighters do better

Haste all the way, with an good melee party you are unstopable with an good haste buff on. At second rank there has to come magic missile good unresistable dmg.

This is a GREAT cleric attack spell!!! I'm also quite fond of Holy Smite (level 3). It's one of the few area effect spells in IWD that you can cast right on top of your party without damaging your party. Of course, you better not have any evil characters in your party or they might not be too happy.

I don't think of healing spells as my "favorite" cleric spells. Let's face it. Clerics are your field medics. Without their healing spells, the value of a cleric is far lower.

My favorite mage spell is Haste.
Doesn't do any damage on its own, but I love to see my fighters whacking away at the enemies when they're on it. Especially the ones with speed boots.

For disrupting enemy spells, you can't beat magic missile.

For mage-thieves, it's got to be improved invisibility.
