I've been lurking here for a bit and I admit that whenever I see a post about "friggin' easy classes to win with" I see Archers and Wizards mentioned. Archers...yeah, I understand. Wizards...yeah, I understand that, too, but why not elementalists? I know that elementalists aren't considered bad in the sense that -- for instance -- merchants are considered bad, but what is the primary advantage of wizards over elementalists? I'm currently running a Lvl 10 GE Salamander elementalist w/ level 19 in Burning Hands, Level 11 in both Frost and Fire Bolt, and Level 5 in Fireball. As a Wizard, I'd be lucky if I had TWO of those skills at that point.
Am I missing something? Admittedly, I rarely play Wizards (elem, priest, or mindcraft if I'm going for "magic" types), but I'm not seeing how Wizards are easier than the other magic casters.
