35 mana is too much for stun I think... and only 4 mana cost before
one for one mana to hps is too LITTLE for cure crit. What you created
was a mage thats better off holding off of stunning, to use mana for
healing... sounds more like druid to me.
Make our stuns cheaper so we could use them more! And make
our healing more expensive... maybe then we will stop acting
like healers, and start acting more like mages!
This is not deep in my heart, but something is weird with the
equation when you are midfight and are considering the next
special..... 35 mana for stun or a free kick with some healing.

I agree with you. I rarely use the stun spell because it's so easy to
drain all your mana before you realize it. 20 mana might be a good cost.
I also agree that 4 mana overhead for a healing spell is kind of low. Your
comment of "stop acting like healers, and start acting more like mages"
also rings true with me. In fact, I don't say this often these days
because there's absolutely nobody that agrees with me, but I think that
healing spells should be removed entirely. At the same time, I think that
a low level of healing should be available to everyone via poultice and/or
first aid, depending on hometown.
Mages step on the toes of too many other specializations, including
healing. I'd like to see them in the same boat with the fighters on this

damn i agree with you on that part of healing Poetry
it was a nice advantage but it's rather cheap
but i also must say that those healing stones should be taken out too
they are rather cheap. but i think druids and surgeons should be the only
ones that can provide healing to others. mages healing
themselves should have a greater cost....

I have to say that I liked it when cause mages had cure light only
and create mages had cure serious. A little healing a great cost is
ok, but spam eat 10 roots for 300hps of quick heal is just too much. Flee
and heal with 2 cure crits for 120 hps before the fighters bash lag and
hunt lag clears is cheap too! And yeah, I hate the healing stones...

Still need some kinda healing else meditate will often be useless
as you'll still have to sleep for hps.
