Well for my 2 cents worth :-1) Blink SHOULD be fixed. After all we are WARPING throught space, not travelling in the normal time/space area, so HOW does a blade of grass, or 1cm rise or fall affect it so?2) Familiars, hmmm well as a big fan of DnD (all type from before when many of you lot were born), i have to say yes. BUT as in DnD i would like to see the penalties. Something like when/if the pet dies, you lose TWICE its Health. The buff should be MAGE only tho, after all the familiar is WILLINGLY serving you, and forms a psykic bond with you, allowing you to see with its eyes. The familiar should be hardy, but does NO damage (or negligable - say a lvl 1 critter normal damage), and gives you a buff - depending on what critter you get. What you get should be randomly selected from what is available in the area where you cast the spell.3) Teleports. While i agree that more portals like one you can 'set' would be too OP, having one set somewhere where there are NPC's who would be happy to set a portal up (like the isle for one) would be cool, and not OP. Teleports however are not so OP. After all its just one mage. A 'beacon' as someone has suggested above (probably a Might and Magic player) is an emminently sensible and useful idea. A reagent powered teleport beacon (ie an expensive one to 'set' the beacon), set to a previsited locale, usable like a normal teleport (using a reagent) for a period of time (like until you log as per conjoured items)4) Mirrior Images :-Imo should be like the spell in DnD too - 1-4 images, doing no damage, so ppl waste time chasing the image (hopefully) down and killing it (1 health image). Its not too OP then and aids our survivability nicely.Anyhow - now im sure ill get some flamer saying 'mage qq'. Id just like to point out- ive been 'flamed' by locks saying that mages are OP vs locks in PVP. Please flame me more like that - i mean it - honestly - i need a good laugh.Belt - excellent article - one of the best ive seen here ever imo. Not trying to stir ppl up, and genuinely contructive - well done.
