Sorcerer is a pretty powerful class but his healing ability actually isn't good the later you get. At level 9/10 a puny 12 HP per fireball is kind of terrible, really.

Though Sorcerer reams the early game and for normal/hard difficulty dungeons, he's pretty boss. He just doesn't quite have to power to stand amongst the tops like Paladin or Cyddstep Rogue.

Edit: I wouldn't mind seeing Elf at 55-65 conversion point rate.

I'm fond of Elf Rogues, although that's due in large part to style points. They do rock about as hard as Orc Rogues if you're scumming for CYDSTEPP. 65 point conversions would probably be an improvement.

Dwarf Paladins were fairly strong before Paladins lost their 50% HP recovery. But not anymore.

If the Orc Rogue can find an alter of Dracul, though, he puts you to shame. A few hits of blood power and he's got the same mana as you, but much higher damage.

Dwarf Paladins were fairly strong before Paladins lost their 50% HP recovery. But not anymore.

Yup, it's human, orc, elf, and gnome now for paladins. Actually that's a fairly good range of choices. I'm quite partial to elf paladins (if that's not obvious enough...), but I admit they're probably the weakest of the four viable options now that Dracul is a totally viable deity for the class.

Funny thing, I always Play human rogues. I guess it's a bad habit.

Also, wouldn't a halfling with a tri-sword be better?

I've been finding that Halflings with Tri-swords make good rogues, thieves and warlords, you can get your damage extremely high at low levels, which allows for rapid levelling, especially if you save one or two specific glyphs. I suspect several other classes work well too. Even if you save some potions, it is a massive damage increase at first level. (And reminiscent of the original tri-swrod, where your first level damage was insane but you trashed the rest of your stuff).

I haven't tried this on any of the very tough content though.

Probably the most entertaining example, which I'm sad I didn't screenshot, involved clearing Venture Cave after exploring every single square before killing anything on a halfling thief. Hardly a difficult dungeon, but having only level ups as a source of regen is a distinct handicap. :)

Halfling wizard with taurog and tri-sword makes that mission really easy.

If you can nab TT poison boon, it's much better.

1) Orc
2) Human
3) Elf
4) Dwarf
5) Goblin
6) Halfling/Gnome: I just don't like potions as much as permanent boosters.
