Anyway, after finding an early book with Throw Icicle in it, I decided to aim for Ice Storm and busily trained 8 levels in Ice Magic. Sif Muna, who had clearly been having a chat with Xom while my back was turned, then gave me an artifact spellbook with a whole bunch of fire spells, including Fire Storm. Is it worth training up fire magic or should I hold out for more ice books?
Also, what exactly makes Sif Muna worthwhile? Is it just the spellbooks? 1d2-1d5 channeling doesn't seem like it would do much in the endgame, since you can't generally afford to stand still regenerating magic while an ancient lich or an orb of fire barrels down on you.
