I couldn't believe how quickly focus is now depleted. I have 626 focus and it was gone in an instant combatting the few relatively easy (green) elves in the elf room of the Solania catacombs. As a mage, I carry no weapon and rely solely on spells for combat. Apparently I have to not only acquire and carry reagents with me, but also focus potions. This is unreasonable for a build that has no physical offensive powers and can't resort to auto-attack with a physical weapon. It looks like I will have to start training swordsmanship and either give up my shield (which I need to compensate for the lack of physical protection my cloth armor gives me) or give up my wand (which I need as a mage). Oh wait - there is another option. I can just give up the mage build altogether.
