It's definitely gong to be something that needs to be handled carefully, but it's in line with the new paradigm of Necromancy be scary yo! It's another tool in the Plot kit, unless you're talking about PvP, at which point... y'know... Necromancy is supposed to be scary... and powerful... and enticing...Disease is going to kill more lowbies on mods then lack of life spells I am betting. It is super punishing to them.
Do you then agree that if people want to use healing potions, they should be required to have Earth slots equal to Effect Level -4?If Earth casters want to be offensive they can cast chaos or become Celestial casters, we shouldn't imbalance the game to fix this.
That's a fine parody with scrolls, but we're not talking about that.Do you then agree that if people want to use healing potions, they should be required to have Earth slots equal to Effect Level -4?
Let's keep this a civil discussion on how to address spell school balance as opposed to being accusatory about different opinions.Please keep posts civil and know discussions are are being read and talked about internally by the Owners and ARC.
I was catching up in here and this caught my eye. I mean this sincerely when I say I'm sorry if you ever put up with this. This is not standard, common, or frankly acceptable (barring extreme circumstances of course)..., but most importantly it is also not the norm for most chapters that I visit and talk to. I certainly hope this isn't reflective of any given event. You shouldn't have to put up with that unless it is for perfectly IG reasons.Anecdotally, this rings very true to me. I have rarely seen anyone rez for lack of a life spell being available, just because they were being kept in hand for someone 'more important'.
Respectfully, that will never happen. The power gradient is too steep. Your average well kitted out high level character would be a walking town wipe if they decided to go after the mid and low level characters.
People quit rather than put themselves in a PvP situation they can't win, because those with the power have the ability to make their weekend a nightmare (that they paid for the privilege of attending) if they feel like it.
I disagree. Unless you are factoring in golems of which I couldn't agree more. Leaving those out how is Celestial over powered?As a celestial caster (adept), celestial has been OP for quite some time now. I think with this packet, things have finally evened out, personally.
I’ve spent seven years as a Caster in this system. Am I qualified?No Ruki, hes saying celestial is underpowered and Earth is in a good place. If you really feel differently then I'm not sure you've spent much time as a non caster looking in. I'm not sure how adding more spells to a list bloated with the best spells in the game benefits a game "balancing" more than that previously suggested celestial spell to let those life spells get a "mini renew". Both of you and draven seem to be missing that stickied post about increased moderator activity.
