Question Brand New to Gothic. Questions on Class/Character Build for Gothic 1

July 6th, 2008, 04:32
I just bought Gothic Universe that contains all three versions plus the expansion pack to G2. I will soon install Gothic 1.

I am not a stranger to RPGs: BG1 & 2, NOX, Divine Divinity, Neverwinter Nights 1, Morrowind, etc., but I really don't much about Gothic other than a few things I have read. Gothic Universe doesn't come with any manuals other than what I assume what is included on the disks.

All of the above allowed the possibility of multi-classing or character builds that allowed mixture of several class skills on the game mechanics.

In Gothic, is your hero basically limited to one class? For example, I don't like playing a straight mage, but I really like serious magic being able to supplement my fighter. And if I am a fighter I also like to use ranged weapons.

So my questions are as follows:

1. If I choose to go fighter is it possible to have magic skills and range skills or will I be spreading too thin?

2. In your opinion, what makes for a wise hero build?
