Oh, I know there are spellcasters, even imps, I'm just wondering if it's ever worth using rings that protect you. I've never found a group of like spellcasters. It seems one guy will hit me with fire, the one next to him with lightning. It isn't like other RPGs, where you know what you're going to face and can prepare to go out there.
I'm surprised people are saying it's easy. My roommate is 100% combat oriented and has been getting his ass kicked by the necromancer cave since level 1. Time to find that slider on the 360. We've all slashed some characters dozens of times, plus hit them with fireballs, plus scamps, all for nothing.
