Yep. Until you can reliably cast several lightning bolt spells, or have a nice stack of light rods, or have an uber bow, stay away from all mobs as a mage. You need to either take several at once,...

I would far prefer the inscriptions so it is obvious what is happening. It is very difficult to remember which book is which when you arent carrying them all.

@Adam--
Yes. Also, DEX matters right out to 18/220 for max blows for heavy weapons, especially if you want to get to 6 blows. (In the old days, this didn't used to be so, where it maxed at 18/150.)

@Derakon--
