That said, I'll buy the game and play a pure mage. I normally like to do a fighter/mage combo, but if the melee combat is like Oblivion then it will bore me very quickly. At least with magic I know it's supposed to hit if I aim correctly and there is still a chance of missing. It's totally up to my reflexes, but I'll take what I can get.
