Choosing spells in your Grimoire...

Recommended Posts

I am wondering about this - I have not played a PC wizard yet (my least favorite class) but when trying to choose spells for BB wizards Grimoire I noticed some spells seem to be restricted - you can't choose to put as many as you wish in their given space.

 

Two spells that act this way:

 

3rd Level "magic missle" (I forget the proper PoE name for it) - I can only "learn" one of these - no matter if I clear all four spaces it will only allow me to place one MM

 

3rd Level Fireball - I can only learn two of these - again no matter how many open slots I have the game only allows me to place 2.

 

My question would be - does anyone know if this is by design or a bug?

I've not played a WIzard yet either, but isn't the fact you can put more than one spell of each level into the Grimoire the actual bug? Ah, I see Sensuki responded as I'm typing this. Yeah, so you have no need of putting more than one copy of a particular spell in that level.

You can only learn one of them because the amount of spells you can cast is per spell level, not per spell. Like the Sorcerer in D&D.

 

So why can I only choose 1 MM if I can choose 2 Fireballs (same level)

Hahah I'm everywhere!

 

And yeah you shouldn't be able to put two fireballs in your grimoire I don't think.

 

I'll add it to my notepad, go start a bug report and I'll make a video for you.

So I can cast as many spells per level as my character level permits but I am limited to 4 spell choices to work from? Is that regardless of caster level?

Seems to be, although we haven't seen a whole lot of levels yet. You can change the spell loadout at any time (although if you do it during combat, you'll lose the ability to cast. Not sure for how long. I think until after combat ends).

Oh I figured it was like a D&D mage or Sorcerer and you had to rest to replenish??

The closest analogue is Pathfinder's Arcanist. Essentially you select spells to memorize, and can cast from that list if you have spell slots available.

 

IMO, Wizards should get more spells known on level up.
