Charm spells allow you to charm another being and use them as a pet. The argument could be made this is more useful than a druid because undead are more plentiful.

Although monks do not get the toys of a high level warrior they also do not have to depend on them. However it will only slam for 1 point of damage.

Bards are the weakest of the hybrid classes when it comes to melee. At early levels wizard damage spells are similar to all other mage types and also druids. Up to level 20 they are still quite underpowered. Rogues can make a very fun class for the right type of player. Add to this invisibility, confusion and all sorts of other "mess with you" spells and the enchanters are a very useful addition to a group. Not depe… At creation, players select each character's adventuring occupation (such as a wizard, ranger, or cleric — called a class — see below for particulars), a patron deity, and starting city. At low levels wizards are probably the weakest of all classes and you may find yourself shunned at early levels. Une Quête de niveau 52. Healers can double, triple even quadruple and more the amount of damage a player can take during the course of a battle. These classes are designed to hack and slash. Magicians spells generally do a bit more damage while druid spells are more mana efficient. A given character can have access to one or more classes. The weakness is that there isn't much variety in being a warrior. Bards suffer a fierce experience penalty when soloing and most of their spells are most useful in a group. Enchanters have one of the most highly coveted buffs in the game, mana regeneration. They can use basically any weapon they can find including 1h/2h blunt and slashing weapons as well as piercing weapons. Druids and magicians are next in line when it comes to dishing out direct damage. These spells will damage everything around you and have a decent ratio(though not enough to kill a blue at higher levels alone) but will turn all of the monsters targeted against you which may not be a good idea especially if you are a necromancer.

Wizard spells do have a shorter recast time and more mana than a cleric allowing them to actually out damage a cleric in most circumstances post level 24 however clerics will maintain an edge over other classes. These spells will do damage to any monster that does damages to you. Weaknesses of the class is that you will never be able to match damage with a wizard and the fact that buying 4 new elemental summoning spells every level can get quite expensive.

Your offensive spells are damage over time which fits in well since you are primarily a melee class but unlike other hybrids you never receive the root spell which will make it hard to chase down runners. Caster classes have the lowest hit points per level and can only wear the lightest of armors. However at higher levels if a druid wanted to stick to summoned beasts he could move to an elemental plane. Necromancers get all of the undead DD spells that a cleric receives but they get them one circle later. All classes get bind wound but the caster classes are much more limited in how far they can raise this skill. In my experience, they were a relatively strong class in PvP. Monks have enough extras to keep them a bit more interesting than warriors. Monks are the best duel wielders in the game though you will probably never want to actually use a weapon as your hands do more damage in a quicker amount of time. Wizards like most mage types have low hit points and you will not have a pet to guard you. After you receive dual wield and double attack at level 15 there isn't much to look forward to from that point on.
