I have a question regarding stat choices. Why do you consider Strength more important a stat for the mage than Vitality? Are the damage mitigation for the Embermage so good he can completely ignore putting points in Vitality? My main concern is about survivability.
Doom, how does each level/point in the 'brand' skills scale, like how much damage does each point give?
Also regarding ice prison, do spells go through them? (eg. blazing pillar) Also how is ice prisons' interaction with bosses, do they shatter immediately from a hit?
Also, what's your opinion on the Firestorm spell?
