The Control Wizard has a spell for every occasion, and a counter for every resistance. Staring down an ogre? Chill it with the Ray of Frost until it's encased in an icy slab, then finish it with a barrage of Magic Missiles. If his orcish minions try to get revenge, knock them all away with the powerful Ice Storm blast.
Neverwinter promises death for the meek, glory for the bold and danger for all. It's their city, but your rules.
