The whole mages order was ripped directly from the Wheel of Time as an example. There are so many more but I'm tired right now and I would have to go back and look at the game again to remember the rest.
This reminds me of people complaining that Pan's Labyrinth 'ripped off' the mandrake from Harry Potter. The idea of a college of wizards has been around since long before Wheel of Time. Everything comes from somewhere.
There's got to be a name for the phenomena where people think wherever they saw something first is where it originated.
