Hey I want to ask about the recruitable mages, which do you recommend as the best attacking mage, Edwin, Xan, Dynaheir, or Xzar?
IMIO, it's between Edwin and Dynaheir. Depends on your party alignment.
Although I'd personally dual class Imoen to mage at level 6 and then you're good to go.
I completely forgot about Dual Classing, thanks for telling me that.
