It's about time to discuss the wizard class.
With launch of mod 16, all classes got a big revamp. Wizard had many imperfections, but at least had excellent dps. Then came the big nerfs, especially for the thaumaturge. Later came a buff, then another nerf, then a new huge bug. This gives a feeling of diy.
The wizard class isn’t satisfying at all, since it clearly lies behind the other damage dealer classes in term of gameplay and dps. It needs more than dps adjustment or sporadic fixes. Almost all classes and paragon got deep overhauls. Wizards are still waiting. At every mod release or big patch, wizard players ask what powers/feats/builds are good, proving this class is still unfinished.
It would be about time to focus on wizards and make a good and consistent class.
Here I’ll enumerate the present issues, and give some ideas how to make a great wizard class. Please feel free to comment, discuss or make proposals.
