    Help with high level channeling build and required gear

    IMO the single biggest benefit to Channeling is that it gives so much flexibility in how much you want to throw. If I memorize an 8th level Evocation Bolt, I've got a single 40 to throw. That's it, no choices. One shot. If I have 40 points of Channeling Pool to throw, I have a lot of options. If...

    Help with high level channeling build and required gear

    I find Channeling to be a great source of sustained "something to throw" throughout the day. Being able to throw 5s and 10s for a long time is equivalent to an archer, with the bonus of being able to switch elements and do damage even if you hit their cloak/shield/what-have-you. The downside of...

    Resolved Magic Spellbook Tags

    Spellbooks are contained within physreps as described in the ARB and PG. They can contain multiple spellbook tags. Once a Physrep has a non-times ever Ritual cast on it, it becomes indestructible and unchangeable. Spellbook physreps can have multiple spellbook tags (including mundane writing)...

    Resolved Do players take damage from too-hard hits?

    The reason it's not defined as a hard and fast item in the ARB is because it really does depend on the specific situation, chapter, and environment. If someone hits you too hard, it is always OK to call a Hold to let them know (as you note in your item A). Beyond that, how specifically to...

    Spooookkky Death breakup infograph

    All good points, thanks! This might be interesting to revisit in a year after 2.0 has been out longer, and looking at 2.0-only deaths to see how it lines up.

    Spooookkky Death breakup infograph

    It seem unsurprising that the two least death counts by class are the two most "defense" focused classes - Rogue and Adept. Scout, however, would logically be in that same group - and yet it's the class with the most deaths. Curious!
