      Played through with both a Greenmage and a Shock Arcanist. Both are good but this is a little better in my opinion. The extra damage is great also if you take the Sellsword background then you can wear "Medium Armor." Funny thing is you can't wear leather. So you have to find some Scalemail, until you can afford Half-Plate. You can also dual wield Short-swords if you pick an Elf-class, and stat for Int, Dex, and Con. You lose a lot on the Int skill set though so need to max out Arcana, and something else. Then have another character in the party pick up on the History, and Investigation checks for instance. Also, if you get +55 reputation you can buy Belt of Dwarvenkind from the Arcaneum faction. Therefore, Con is not as important as you will get +2 to Con. (This allows you to put something into either Wis or Cha if you need it for skill checks depending on party composition. The game is super table top like so skill checks are super important.) Also, you don't need to pick Dwarven as a language.
