Oh and also... Fire is good for low levels, but when you get higher up... you will find it harder. Earth, you won't have many great spells for it.. but there is not much immune to acid damage. Air, your attacks my be saved by reflex saves more often... but when they hit, they have a chance of hitting again and causing massive ammounts of damage. Water... you will have ice spells that do a awesome amount of damage, and lots of ranged stuff and single target spells that will destroy your enemies, though some undead (which is a lot of the game) will be immune... but that isn't something you have to worry about too much. Ice is generally the best option.. however, it weakens one of the most used spells of an arcane... Firewall... They are all give and take. I can say for ice though, that though you won't get firewall... they get an ice version of the spell that isn't quite as strong but still pretty good... Ice storm.

Yea it does that... There is the initial fast download, which is downloading the dowloader... then the long 4+hour download... then the launcher setup, then the patch downloads..
