Hello! you maybe wondering what i'm talking about in the title! are we playing Dungeons and Dragons? well not exactly :PP but i am using DnD to help determine something! In the game, there are distinct differences between a sorceror and a Wizard.
A Wizard is one that has to read and learn their magic from outside sources all the time, and will cary a tome of magic to hold their magic! they can cary as many spells as they have pages, and can add more tomes on top of that! however little of what they do is innate
The sorceror, on the other hand, discovers their magic from within. Usually through spontaneous trial and error, and often surprising them as much as anyone else. They are adaptable and flexible. However they may leap too far across bridges of logic, and may find themselves in binds. However they are attuned to adaptation and lateral thinking. They don't need any dumb books to do their magic!
My friend and I are very different when it comes to games, studying, and most things in life in general!
He is what i would very much call a "Completionist/Grinding" person,or a "Wizard" in that he prefers to max out his entire level, explore every bit of area and lore to be found, and to complete things 100% or as close as he can at certain points in time. this mostly relates to games, but in life as well. He once told me that he maxed out Cloud's level in the first area with enemies in FF7 at the Midgar reactor place, before he moved on.
Me, on the other hand, am a Sorceror! can be more of an exploring type, but i invite challenges as they come, and tend to learn things in the moment, which involves a lot of trial and error. I can sometimes enter parts of games that i am severely underleveled in, and i have often had to laterally find my way out of sticky situations. I remember the first time i played dark souls, i got to the Tomb of the Giants, and i found myself running around giant skeletons and whatnot, til i found the bonfire. I learned soon after that i was severely underleveld, and everything killed me almost instantly. so it forced me to spend several hours grinding on the skeleton towers, until i could finally fight the giant skeletons and ran up all the way to the previous bonfire (which i had to fight a freaking invader to get by at the time) it was hard, but i did it!
He, learns everything he can before he progresses. I.E. a Wizard
I, jump in and learn things on the move. I.E. a SorPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
