Alter Aeon FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
FAQ 4.12 - What spells/skills do I want or need first?
Generally, the class you pick will set you on the path to get spells
and skills for that class. At low levels, the number of spells and
skills you can get is limited, so you may even be able to get all of
them for the first few levels.
Some good rules of thumb:
Mages - get at least one good combat spell that you're comfortable with.
Clerics - get at least one healing and one harming spell.
Thieves - learn dodge, then get combat skills and stealing skills.
Warriors - fighting skills, naturally, but above all, learn parry.
Necromancers - learn the minion spells and skills. Minions rule.
