The ideal one would be a balance of both, cause you get the best of both worlds... but I would want to be better at fighting melee than in magic. Magic does come in handy when you need to heal, though, so it is a necessary burden.

If we on;y had malee power how would we attack flying foes.
But then again magic can't solve everything.
I think a bit of both works well.

I would prefer melee with just a tad bit of magic.

All fighters need to heal sometimes, and
having a bit of magic to help you along
would be great.

I'd say a bit of both. Strong magic is very important and gives you a big advantage over an enemy, however you need decent melee skills to actually finish them off.

I'd lean more towards magic than melee for those reasons.

I said Powerful Magic User with no melee skills. Magic is all I need.

I would want a powerful warrior with a bunch of passive magic to make him even more physically powerful. so you know he would have super strength, resillency, agility, and a some kind of a ability that would make his opponents weaker.

melee!, i hate magic skills, if i could just use melee skils that would be perfect for me. i feel like the action is more real as a warrior without magic

Magic rules.
And as for the unavoidable physical situations.
When in doubt, teleport out.

I would choose to be a strong melee fighter with some magic skill. I think you need to be able to fight in close combat, but a few magical tricks up my sleeve would be really useful as well. What you can do with magic, you can probably get similar results with some effort, but magic does definitely help make things easier.

I'd prefer alot of magic with minimal melee. Magic is just so much more useful against those damn trolls I keep running into on my morning commute.

And seriously, who needs to be able to kick ass like Jet Lee if you can magically fly or something. Theres that organization that'll give anyone who can prove a supernatural ability one million bucks... and seriously, nothing is cooler than someone who can create fire or ice out of nothing.
