From my experience playing mages in V, I would say, well, maybe.
Cloudkill is not a lot of use once you get it, but shockwave is quite
handy because it stuns (good against summoners). Bedlam I never used,
but IIRC it's an area chaos effect, which might be useful for confusing
or polymorphing in some circumstances.
So I'm going to sit right on the fence. Sorry.
