Follow this sage advice!
Want to become an expert spell slinger in Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach (DDO)? Darkgolem has the guide for you! Be the life of the party! Be the envy of all your friends! Be pop-pop-POPULAR!
Ahem. Well, okay, we can't guarantee good parties or friends suffering from spell caster envy, but we can promise that using good tactics will make you a sought-after group member. In a game where grouping is the only way to advance, popularity's not such a bad thing.
Using good tactics may be more important for spell casters than any other classes. This is because spell casters can affect the largest amount of targets at once. A badly placed spell can turn an easy fight into a struggle for survival for your whole party. However, a skillful spell caster, backed by a party of adventurers who work well together, can handle combat much more dangerous than normal.
