      A little bit of a pointless class in early access. A wizard can achieve about the same AC as this class with mage armor and 16 dex, has access to more spells, can learn any spell, has more spell slots, and depending on the race you choose, can be proficient with a variety of weapons. i don't see why you would just not choose Wizard, if the idea is to be a battle-mage type character.

        Eldritch Knight is so screwed over by its school restrictions. Evocation, which is primarily damage, is awful on a 1/3 caster as the damage lags behind their normal attacks, and most abjuration spells on the wizard spell list are utility. The only second-level abjuration spell is Arcane Lock!

        When I DM in 5e I allow players to choose their two schools, and I'm definitely going to get a mod that does the same in BG3
