I’m personally torn between the Magic User and the Thief. It’s not that I don’t like the Fighter, but I think he’s a bit… boring? He’s very strong, he solves problems by force and while there’s nothing wrong with that, it lacks a bit of cunning I personally prefer.
Choosing the Thief gives you a lock pick at the beginning of the game, which can be quite useful. The Magic User starts with the Zap spell, which is… not that great a spell to be honest 😀
So for QfG I would probably prefer a Thief with magic abilities over a Magic User with thieving skills. But during later games in the series, you can get some special spells if you are a Magic User, so if you want to play the entire series with the same character, picking this class might be interesting.
Another thing I just remembered that really helps: draw a map of the world as you explore it! It’s really useful later on to be able to travel in an efficient way. It’s also useful to know where to go when you’re in danger and need a safe spot to come to your senses.
And let’s be honest, it’s also loads of fun to draw maps on paper 😀
Haha, I think this is a typical first impression at this game, toasty 😀
It’s definitely a good idea to save often. That’s a thing in most Sierra games and QfG is no exception.
I think picking a magical thief is definitely one of the most interesting ways to play the game.
I’m currently playing the EGA version with a magic user character who has some thieving abilities, which is sort of the same thing 😀
