True, true. We'll still love it for their hard work.
But we won't love the cooldowns. Never. Way to make the combat unappealing.

That's... what 5 threads merged as one? This is far too bloated to even keep track of anymore...

I agree! I just spent a couple of minutes looking for my last post as some sort of landmark... and failed. I think it's time to abandon ship and close this horrible, horrible mess.

Indeed. Too many threads created on the subject. Anybody feel like creating a new one (and only one) on vancian and cooldown stuff?
