Change in Rent
Since most players who will be severely affected by this have an alt or two, i would think such would only encourage cross-playing and unfinished duels, fights, etc. (would probably mean also that dispel magic will be somewhat overpowered, maybe?)
Granted that it sucks being a mage wasting mana on effects that can be removed simply by renting, but then again it sucks having to have 110str 110dex 35 min, etc. just because you ain't a mage... and leaving a hand slot for a vial in case you get blinded (hopefully just once b4 you find a replacement, si nce those things are so darn renty).. bleah. Since i never pkilled with a mage (other than in the tourney) i am biased... wondering if there are arguments for the change without unbalancing the scale too much.
