I Love and Hate wizards. They are by far the best and worst class in BFME2. Very Powerful Class with No Defense. Powers are awesome but most are unheard of in LOTR.

PROS
High Damage

Cool Powers

Awesome Apperance

Good/Evil Use

CONS
1.Low Armor

2.Many Powers are quite ficticious and have no basis in LOTR

3.Lack of abilities seen in LOTR

3a.Mount

3b.Use of Sword and Staff

3c.Weak in terms of thier status in Tolkien's Silmarillion
(They were part of the Maia the same class of beings as Lord Sauron.)

That's my rant on whats right and wrong with the wizard class in BFME2.
Now for the part where i tell you how to fix it.

1. Give them the 'Mount' Power
LVL 1 Horse
LVL 2 Dragon/Eagle

2.
Give thier base attributes a boost (x2)
Give them more attribute points (10)
Raise the price to 8000

(They should be by far the best class albeit the most expensive)

3. Improve thier range of powers mixing in power from all classes
and add an area of effect hit like Galadriel (Ring Hero)

:P 3c is out of the question.

Hell, if you know what you're doing, a few groups of rangers can down Sauron.

1.Low Armor
They walk around in cloaks...they're not untouchable.
2.Many Powers are quite ficticious and have no basis in LOTR
Such as?
3.Lack of abilities seen in LOTR
They have selectable all the abilities used by both Saruman and Gandalf.
3a.Mount
No.
3b.Use of Sword and Staff
Wizards don't typically use swords.
3c.Weak in terms of thier status in Tolkien's Silmarillion
(They were part of the Maia the same class of beings as Lord Sauron.)
This is the third age. Magic is an aging technology. Gandalf himself doesn't use all that much magic. The silmarillion takes place nine thousand years before the events of the game.
1. Give them the 'Mount' Power
LVL 1 Horse
LVL 2 Dragon/Eagle
No.
2.

A price of 8000 is too expensive. You'll never be able to afford it unless you have map control and are only stalling for time.
3. Improve thier range of powers mixing in power from all classes
and add an area of effect hit like Galadriel (Ring Hero)
area of effect = not needed. Wizard blast does that. Powers from other classes = not needed. They have enough.
Hell, if you know what you're doing, a few groups of rangers can down Sauron.
That was mirkwood archers pre 1.03. You needed more Rangers, and...well, they got nerfed too

if you actually notice the caption above the wizard create a hero youll see that they say that the create a hero wizards werent all part of the istari, though being a Maia might be a prerequisite.
By the way, Sauron was one of the most powerful maia, and once he was corrupted, the valar decided not to let any other maia that they sent to fight Sauron to be as powerful, of course they still should be more powerful than any other category.
I can understand an eagle as a mount, since Radagast the brown was a friend of all the creatures, particularly the eagles, but a dragon, probably not. Dragons were on the same side as Sauron, and by the Third Age, most dragons have died off.
They should be quite durable, seeing as how Gandalf was able to fight one on one with a balrog and win though he died later.
Youre making the wizards into more of ring heroes than normal ones, s owhy dont you just get the istari mod or something like that, because i would think that as strong as galadriel is, she wouldn't be stronger than someone who possibly had a part in making the world.
