ok, this is why battle druids aren't do fun, because
it's not possible to have mind, it kinda makes the whole think suck.
what about those people who want augment but don't want to bother
with spells? we're SOL?

There are/ have been quite a few augmenting warriors..
it works well as far as I've experienced/seen

I wasn't real clear, I think mana should rely half on mind,
and half on spirit, so people that do decide NOT to use spells
can have equal mana to those who do use spells.

Rather than having mana rely on mind alone, I belive that it should be
based on two-thirds of your mind and spirit combined. This will have
little impact on mages that don't spam for their spells, since their
spirit has to be close to 50; little impact on most druids, since their
mind has to be close to 50; and reward those few people who shoot for
Throw in some +mana gear, and such a druid would have more mana than
anyone else in the game. (Or a surgeon, in fact.)

As to battledruids not being any fun, I beg to differ, I have 3 of those
currently, all nospam, and one of them is a retired pkiller.
She wasn't an extremely good killer, but that was also probably
because I suck. ;) But she was definitely fun. And had spells and augment
The other two are also extremely good for the purposes which I designed
them to fit, so I can't agree that battledruids are no fun.
Skar's idea of mana being 2/3 of mind/spirit combined I find extremely
appealing, for the reasons he already so accurately stated.

thanks for helping me make my point, Mary, which you did so well
when you stated that your druid that retired had spells, and therefor
needed 50 mind bare minimum regardless.
I'm pondering a druid with say, 30 mind, I have no choice but to
grab +mana gear.
and btw, this spirit adding mana idea is in no way my idea, it was
Skar's as he appended, I simply heard him say it once before and thought
I'd post it here to see the response it got from the playerbase.
kudo's too skar, it's the best idea I've heard in a long time, and
there honestly ISN'T a downside to it that I can see.

Well, the only downside that I can see is that with 100 spirit and mind,
plus a bunch of +mana gear, there arises the possibility of characters
with over 1k mana. This might freak people out. However, this would take
sooo much rent that the character would have virutally no fight skills
whatsoever. They'd be pretty helpless on their own.
