Why 5? I though we were limited to 8 - not that I mind, though I'd rather have a few more skills at hand.

Personally speaking, not happy. No malletting!!

What is a rank 10 scout with neutral healing going to do outrageously anyway? I had enough bind wounds every fight, sit down and everyone rest back their 5 power to do more bind wounds after the next fight, on her last outing.

That's just me, obviously...

its only a problem if the rank 10 scout has 6 dex then gets a bless plus 2 dex and suddenly the ref needs to give the ghoul paralysis 4 to effect you.

plus if 1 player is rank 10 then others will want to be rank 10 and a warrior at rank 10 can have 100+ life and an acolyte can cast cure mortal and the mage can give out level 5 stoneforms and suddenly monsters are doing quad and quin again

I know that at least some people want to go back to real low level at least for the january event with monsters doing low damage and stil being scary

as always we will only run for whatever everyone wants

what people dont want is to start new charcaters and feel useless because the higher rank players kill all the monsters etc

Five's cool with me too. Never played much of a caster before, so the less I have to remember the better.

Another "Hell Yeah" for the rank 5 option

Now what do I spend my other 26 points on (after "Big Whakky Hammer". . . wow! it's like being back at school again and spending all year working out what to spend our next 8 points on

However I would disagree that rank 10 suddenly means quin and quad! At rank 10 a mage could have at most 20 level 5's (and pretty much nothing else!) which isn't going to keep the entire party in stoneform 3's all day let alone stoneform 5's. Equally the scout example of "needing" to do power 4. . . what about the rest of the party? Warriors with 100 life?! Hurrah. . meatshields at the prime of their career! There seems to be a feeling on events that you look at the partys stats and set the minimum damage to "beat" the best AC of the group which is a really daft way of coming at it (especially on low levels where the difference is arguably at it's widest). At rank 10 no-one can have double toughened skin so even the 100 life warrior with a stoneform 5 is taking a point of damage a blow and he can't fight all the monsters so us chaffy people will have to hold some of them off until our tank is free and the addition of a magic 1 blade in the monsters hands suddenly quadruples that. The scout might be able to take the ghoul on her own but that ghouls not going to stand toe-to-toe with her he'll run around ambushing people from bushes and taking a few people out costing the group power.

Just a little "off-topic" rant on minimum damage requirements!
