I have read on the welcome board about the new
requirements for meditate. I find the change justified,
it does in fact make a lot of sense.
But..if I learned the skill with the old prerecs and can't
use it anymore, shouldn't it mean that I have the right to
so to speak give back the skill and get the prac refunded?
I did ask an immortal. The answer was that druids normally
already have the stats needed for meditate. Well I chose
to make druids that basically are pure druids with only the
rudiments of magic - meaning 45 mind :) I pointed it out to
the immortal in question, and the answer was that
it was pretty wasteful since so many of the druids reqs
also qualify one for 2c magic, but that it was my choice.
This is the point exactly! It -is- my choice. If I sacrifice
10 points or more of mind and the more advanced aspects of
2c magic to perfect one of my fighting stats and thus make
more "independent", it most certainly -is- my choice or at
least should be.
I also chose to learn meditate with the requirements the
skill had at the time. If it had the reqs it will have
with the update next week, I ceratinly -would- have chosen
-not- to learn it! So, IMHO, if the requirement for a skill
change so that I don't want the skill anymore, I think it
should be possible for me to get the skill exchanged and
/or the prac refunded.
To me, personally, it's a minor problem, if a problem at
all. But I think what I lined out here raises a major
principal issue as such.

hrm i agree with paddy
if he's a druid doesn't mean he's gonna be a fullon 100mind/spi type
i'ts HIS choice
and i don't think he should be forced to use a prac on meditate
which he can't use now because of the new meditation changes

I agree, if reqs change then pracs should be reimbursed
as a matter of principle. Its irrelevant whether immorts
think its silly to have certain stats.

I agree as well. When somone learns a skill based on current
reqs, and the reqs change, that person needs to re-evaluate
the skill and how it balances with the rest of their skills.
If at that time, they decide to ditch the skill rahter than lose
other skills to keep it, we should be reimbursed a prac.
THAT said -
How about an Immort aappends to this post letting
us know that you read it and are discussing the possibility or
maybe just have decided outright against reimbursing us?
-poke News board post regarding lack of communication-
the idiot who learned throw because he thought the ID spell was going
to make ID vials (i am 3c cause), and wants that practice
back but knows that is a request that can't be honored
