My low level wizard alt unexpectedly grouped up with my regular group, who were also playing their alts. So my level 2 wizard joined a level 5 barbarian and later a level 2 bard.
I quickly got to 3rd level, and got blur and otto's resistible dance. I must say, the suhagain dancing animation is awesome.
I also spent a bit of gold and scribed new spells. I have a somewhat better choice of spells now, but I still need knock to not feel that I'm shooting myself in the foot for not having a level of rogue.
