I would love very much for you to start doing that very act
because I would much prefer a situation whereby it was an impossibility
rather than an action which a paladin or an animist could take at
will infrequently and get away with it.
So I urge you to evoke peace whilst divinely protected each time a stave
is being felled. It will bring the day much closer for when that ability
is banned to those which are protected.
I stress again that I believe freeze to be a skill which is not
overpowered in the slightest. The basic skill is not a problem at all.
If there is a problem, it would lay in the fact that a Bear can
both cast it and jab instantly. This may be an oversight, it may be
deliberate. If it is an oversight I expect it will be removed in due
course with or without moaning from players.
