It depends on how you use it. Most if not all spells are fairly easy to block, parry, or dodge. Agreed, some are a little overboard (some hexes/pyro) but those have few casts. If you are going on the PVP scale, no. If PVM, then hell yes they are OP, lol that geyser and flame swathe...

The cost of using the more powerful spells outweighs their destructive power. If Soul Geyser had only been 15 Int then yeah, it would have been OP, but it requires somewhere in the region of 64 Int? Only pure sorcery builds will be able to effectively utilize the higher tier spells, at the cost of physical damage and defence. Flame Swathe has a small radius and is easy to move out of the area of effect before it goes off. Even Forbidden Sun does relatively low damage considering it's one-shot use.

I feel like Miracles are overpowered this time around. After you get the Great Lightening Spear you can pretty much kill anything. I get invaded a lot, especially by magic users, and in most cases the Great Lightening Spear is a one hit kill, especially if they are not wearing armor. With my Sorceror I felt very underpowered in the beginning of the game and I didn't start getting powerful till around level 70 or so.
