Most of us know the differences between the two. Conjurer isn't simply a healer, and Thaumaturge isn't simply a debuffer. Do not compare these two to classes from ffxi, because they are more complex.
Conjurer and Thaumaturge have many skills and spells, which stretch from support to enfeebling to damage dealing and utility. I personally feel they will share the same basic 'role' in a party as each other, much like a pugilist and marauder will both be damage dealers (with offtanking capabilities).
If anything, the conjurer is more of a DD+support while the thaumaturge seems to be simply support+enfeeble. Thaum only gets a handful of attacks, while conjurer gets many
Which disciple of magic will you choose, and why? (Beta testers only)
