Guild skills are Guild skills ! - There are determined by the heavens and oftentimes get changed as time passes.
If I choose to use my defensive skills, then yes I can escape to the Pool but at a cost to me. It can be stopped if you have the intelligence to think it through, you obviously do not.
I could say the sorcerer ability to perpetual;ly sustain mana as a Astral being and then go Physical is a cowardly act, however it is your guild skill and thus I seek to overcome it.
As I remember you had enormous trouble when your escape route was cut off and ended up boarding the ship.
tell you what next time I see you not in a temple I will see if you have improved.
