Note: Wizards need early game damage good enough to last until they get a good spell, or they gain access to an altar and get themselves Magicbane.

Note on strength: Due to their low starting strength (10 str average), mid game strength will be assumed to give the same bonus as starting strength (instead of 18 str), and late game strength will assume 18 str (instead of 18/** str).
