I had the same difficulties and finnaly chosen these 1st lvl spells:
1) Fan of Flames – Creates a cone of fi re that does Burn damage to everyone caught inside. (couse having a fire spell is always good, lol)
2) Jolting Touch – An electrical current travels from the caster and damages the target, then jumps to the nearest available target within 2m twice, doing reduced damage along the way (reminds me of Homm's Lightning strike think so it was called)
3) Thrust of Tattered Veils – Generates a precise thrust of Crushing force that does little damage but has a high Interrupt. This fast-casting spell is often used to disrupt enemy spellcasting. (Wizards are tricky folks, so i must have something against em),
4) Slicken – The floor takes on a slimy consistency. Everyone entering the area (including allies) has their Refl exes attacked (on entry and at regular intervals after) to avoid going Prone ( Sounds fun, I've chosen this one fastest as I was certain it'd be nice, wizard disables a bunch and my folks kick em).
Not saying this is the ultimate setup just my own choices.
Also I invested in suggested by the game, Might & Intelligence.
