I find the more I play, the more confused I am. I don't understand why fire/ice wouldn't be an optimal build, since you get bonus damage when you hit an ice-slowed target with fire. I'm not quite sure how lightning/ice works.
But mainly, I need a good PvE leveling build, because I'm so greatly confused by this new entropy system that I feel like I need to completely put my mage on hold until the guides are rewritten, so I don't pass level 15 and lose out on my free respecs when I have no idea what I'm doing. =/
The old entropy system, I had read about and I understood, but this new one doesn't seem practical. I'm constantly building up entropies, but at level 12, I don't see the point in even having the spells that require entropy, when a combination of the three skills I'm given to start with seems to work just fine at low levels. Therefore, I have no idea what a good leveling build will be. I wish they'd just bring back the old entropy system; at least as a new player, I understood what I was getting myself into.
