In the end most depends about how much the last 2 tiers of spells/abilities/power will be.

For example in pillars the last 2 spell lvl of druid and wiz were a bit meh, i could have multiclass them easily. On the other side i would have missed a lot defensive mindweb for a chiper or sacred immolation for a paladin.

Same with the PoE rogue: easy to skip the last levels, you won't miss anything.

As said in another thread: I guess things like Concelhaut's Staff + Carnage would be awesome. Also because you can get the Staff so early so there will be not that much waiting to start this combo.

I just tought: since a lot if spells will be tied to power level ( become more powerful as you lvl up - es: minoletta gets more missiles and so on) how will be affected the conjurated weapons?
Since there are a lot of such spells in game ( parasithic staff, the lance, firebrand, ecc) my speculation is that wapons too will "evolve" with the power lvl, probably enanching weapon quality ( fine- excellent - superb) or even giving weapon more abilities.
So having a wizard specialized in the related school ( so he have a bonus power lvl relative to such spell could be interesting).

So i expect that concelhaut parasitic staff, for example, come fine at lvl 1 and without abilities, at lvl 4 you gain more quality + 20% life leech, at lvl 8 more quality, ecc.

Or maybe it is all only in my mind 😁.

I get the feeling the specialist wizard schools will actually end up being more desirable for multi classing than single classing.   Many multi class wizard ideas will just want to use a few specific spells like Concelhaut's Staff and specializing in them will improve their scaling, somewhat negating the downside of multi classing.  Single class wizards on the other would be losing out on utility if they specialize.

I was thinking the same thing. Throw in the increased power for their favoured school of magic and they probably don't lag far behind a single class non-specialist wizard when it comes to those spells.

Therein lies the problem ... there should (imho) always be enough reason to take a class all the way to max power level. Multi-classing should be more about versatility and options rather then raw power. If that is not the case then its simply bad design for me...
