Let me start this note by stating that I have absolutely no knowledge
of the code behind gradstats. But just thinking about a possible
solution to mages not having meditate with the high attribute
pre-requisite, I thought about the creation of a new item.
Just wondering if it would be possible to make an item that
disreguards gradstats, something that's say +8 spirit, -10 something else
and take effect on your stats immediately. This way it'll provide
all third circle mages with the meditate that we so desperately could use.
If it is even possible to make, (Like I said, I have no idea), I'm sure
the rent would be up the wazoo. However, rent space is easier to sacrific
than 8 of a stat. Just my thoughts, go easy with the flames, it's just
an idea that may not even be possible.

Thoughts on mediatate...
mainly i think that the non-spirit stat should be removed or changed
to be mind. otherwise as a lowbie surgeon/mage, you can only meditate
if that other stat is your fight stat, and i'm personally bored of
fighting with that single type of weapon for all my meditation-requiring
characters. Maybe that's just me. Admittedly the requirement isn't that
high, but recently creating a surgeon with a different fight stat,
based on what i know i needed, that other meditate stat had to come
4th at the earliest, and it was a struggle to get to the necessary
amount. (i didn't even do it until level 11). that kinda bugs me,
i had operate reqs at level 6, but couldn't get meditate, and since
the operate reqs are so high in 2 stats, i couldn't really sacrifice
anything. as for mages, i think it's worse leaned toward fighting with
one stat, (even though there's plenty people myself included who use the
other 2 fight stats) because you have to have 4 stats, that one included
reach a certain level to get all of your words. by the time you have all
your word requirements, specially for 3c (which obviously isn't at a low
level, but still requires lots of eq usually), you really haven't the
rent or the slots to raise a different stat for fighting with. apology
if this is rambling and apology because i just noticed i misspelled
meditate in line one and i'm not going back to retype. anyhoo, thats

Expecting to get anything useful out of meditation when you aren't very
spiritual is as silly as quickdrawing a rifle. Sometimes things aren't the
way that would be easiest for you, but the way that is the most realistic.
Deal with it.
