Default Re: MA Marignon Advice Needed (and newbie questions)

Wow. You start with alot of really in depth questions. I'm a noob but will try to answer a few of your questions.

Magic does indeed (sometimeas) scale with caster level. Look at the evo 1 fire spell fire darts. Beside the entries for number of effects and range is a plus sign. For every level of fire magic the number of effects and range increase. Shadow bolt increases in range and damage for every level of death magic. The ritual magic spell Fires from afar hits more enemies the higher the level the fire mage.

I could be very mistaken on this next bit. Fire magic interacts with armor and fire resistance not magic resistance. Armor doesnt help to much vs most fire spells, but fire resistance helps alot. Magic resistance comes into play more for resisting spell effects like banish, rage, sleep, mind control, paralyze, mind control, etc...

Pikes are good against things like heavy cavalry charges and giants that hit hard enough to penatrate shield and armor.

Well it's a start. Look forward to seeing you in a multiplayer game.
