That's probably one explanation (of several) why I struggle more with spellcaster types than other risks. I've tried plenty of Mages and almost never get them past that level, while I've taken a decent number of melee-focused characters to CL 40-50 (Warrior, Rogue, Paladin, and melee-centric Priest builds). If I do give Normal speed a try, time to see if I can make it further with a Mage than I have in Coffee-Break with the benefit of some scumming.
