The way I think of it warriors should be weaker compared to other classes endgame than other classes for multiple reasons, but I'll spare you all the tirade :D

Stasis probably is fine where it's at, I guess it's more of a niche thing now. Sorcery realm has enough going for it, especially now that slow monster is effective against even very high level...

Is there a formula for how likely is death ray to work on a given monster? And what should I be using mass stasis (sorcery) for? I feel like it could be good, but just haven't used it much.

The clear mind spell was a favourite of mine, as well as 'resist magic' IIRC. Having an early spell to protect from the many blindness spamming nrulings in the early game of old FA was huge.

Weird behavior with monster light / dark radius

On a new char I started I noticed some unexpected behavior that (probably?) seems like a bug. In the 'Trouble at Home' quest, I attacked a mean mercenary with a ranged attack. Upon waking up, he...

Vampiric drain spell?
