In response to Skar's suggestion
As well as helping mages, it would put back some of the variety that I believe gradual stats will remove, at least until the new skills come in. Druids and surgeons could hugely benefit from the introduction of a mind weapon. There are a few that have 100 mind now, and they would just be wonderful people under that system.
Please, please, please, please, please implement this idea as a way of really levelling out the classes and the fight system if nothing else.
And while you're at it, lower the con req on meditate. That kills me more than the spirit.

there's a mind con weapon, and a mind dex weapon
I am not sure about str...
however there are plenty of other stats a 100mind mage needs, so I'm sure the weapons there are now can easily be supplimented into there...one could always use more dex and there is a dex str weapon.
However I do agree there are very few mind weapons, but then the conventional weapon doesn't lend it self to intelligence, does it?
An arcane weapon, of sorts, should have a low dam roll, a low hit roll and probably not have that many attacks.
It would be nice if it was +mind...however it should definatley have some serious special effects, similar to a wand.
Just my thoughts :)
Yeah, i love magic
The reason i say this is that otherwise it'd be just way too powerful. Regular damage + extra spell damage chance every round is something fairly lethal, especially if the wielder can back it up with a few spells (if it were to do 100mind damage on the special). Imagine a trident wielding 100 mind mage. Although i personally never tried checking the dam at higher mind, a person such as that would be doing 90ish pts on a round if an immolate goes off! considering its chance of going off while the opponent is stunned, heck, a wfw combined with immolate the damage in one round can go up to a whopping 300 or so. Yowzers.
