I wonder how many others are out who sacrificed perc or other stats for extra con and strength for a good headbutt when a headbutt from a 30 con mage is identical apart from there being a greater chance of stunning himself.
Just hope this can be changed or something, mages are near impossible to beat now without a tulsi save for getting a cheap kill from a paralyze.
As for the spell changes, well.. they're obviously out of whack, no kind of character should be able to take out a HOL mob in 2 rounds no matter the mana cost. The only drawback to being able to do damage like that shouldn't be just a boringly long wait to regen mana.
I was a bit shocked at your statement though. I think over 1/2 my clanned mort deaths were due mainly to staggering headbutts. I had to look though, considering I haven't played a clanned mort in about 6 months =P
Anyway, players can stagger players. End of sentence.
