Maybe I just suck at playing this class but I am having a great amount of difficulty with it. I am only a level 5 so far and the only useful spells I seem to have for attack is the default attack, Phantom Dart, which seems to do little damage, and Banish. I also use Blood Rite to increase magic attack, but even so I can only solo kill mobs with a blue dot. And even those take up a majority of my HP by the end of battle and I have to wait awhile to kill again. Mobs with green dots almost always kill me. I put almost all my points into INT and Piety, which are supposed to increase damage for magic.
I find this very difficult for leveling when my leves are up because it takes so long to kill a simple blue dot mob (when I can even find one not being camped) all for under 100 Thaumaturge points per kill. It could take all day just to gain a single level at best, most of that time being downtime hunting for a uncamped mob or healing from damage.
Am I doing something wrong? how are other Thaumaturges leveling??
