Help with Paradox Mage! Paused...

#1 Post by Delmuir »

Okay, I have tried many times and I cannot figure out how to make this class work.

Basically, how to deal with paradox. It builds up so fast that a handful of unexpected enemies and suddenly you have 25% chance of paradox and no way to mitigate that rapidly. There's not equivalent to a manasurge rune. Once you get into trouble, it's all over.

In theory, you could just run... except, at least one of your potential paradoxes destroys the area surrounding you, i.e., the tiles you could hide behind. Another just randomly teleports you. Thus, with a tiny bit of bad luck, you can find yourself having aggro'd an entire screen of enemies AND randomly clear the terrain that you'd hide behind. Just happened to me and it's not the first time.

As far as I can tell, this class is amazing IF you fight one enemy (or so) at a time with a full rest in-between. I can't, for the life of me, figure out how you're supposed to survive in an extended combat situation. Every time I end up in one, it's just non-stop paradoxes until I die.

I just don't understand how you're supposed to manage the paradox.

EDIT: Seriously, no one has any thoughts on this? I've looked at guides but they're not helpful.
