Making character building an exercise in optimization by necessity takes some fun out of the game
I think this is only a problem with the mage build, I actually did that playing
first time in NOTR as a mage and stubbornly spending LPs in worhtless
directions (skinning and smithing for a mage etc) despite being warned…

So I got to the stone dragon with very little max mana and lesser fire storm
as my most damage dealing spell (couldnt even scratch him). Thankfully this
was a Gothic game(meaning a little creative thinking and perhaps a couple of
exploits can get you anywhere ) . Believe it or not my solution was summoning
hordes of goblin and human skeletons simultaneously ! and it worked for all the
dragons ! (funny stuff) . After the dragons the game never became really difficult
again (although I did stop fooling with the LPs after that lesson).

Totally recommend NOTR and agree with JDR13's comment (that it makes G2 what it should have been from the start)…
