So I’m writing a story with a low power (at least for now) mage MC, and I’m thinking about how to make his fights interesting. So what type of fighting style do you think is good for magic users who aren’t too op? Is just throwing spells (such as fireballs) at the enemy good enough, or does there need to be some kind of melee component? One issue I’m having with this is how avoidable should magic spells be. If it is too easy to escape the effects of magic spells then they seem worthless (which is bad since my MC is a magic user), but if spells are always effective it’s also kind of boring (who wants every fight to end quickly with a few fireballs). Well, maybe some of these problems would be lessened if I focused more on group fighting. That seems like a good way to add complexity to low power battles without having to think too hard. Anyways, if you feel like it please share your thoughts about this matter.
