Looking for some feedback and advice on my first ever character.
I’ll be joining Varushka (love the spookiness) and am in love with the Volhov archetype (meddling/problem solver/ likely an oddball)
I was thinking battlemage (survivability increase with mage armour) 2
Extra mana (more abracadabra) 1
Extra spell (further utility) 2
Spring Lore (more RP opportunities out of battle) 1
Resource: mana site
This may be an odd choice given the benefits of a staff, but I was thinking of wielding an axe. Partly as staffs seem pretty ooc pricy, but I also like the whole varushkan thing of weapons that are also tools. More of a practical fellow with some dabbling in esoteric arts. As a result no offensive spells but maybe heal and mend/restore limb. With the spring lore as an avenue to get more involved in the wider arc of stories out there, low level rituals for helpful/personal buffs but a potential to join others?
Any thoughts are much appreciated
