Whilst I would agree generally with your comments regarding use of the skills
being dependant upon the person I would generally agree but point out a significant
The time when the cries of \"inbalance\" are loudest almost invariably arise either when
a particularly skill is used in a clever or buggy fashion or when someone chooses to use
a skill in an excessive or peverse way.
There have been some very notbale examples in Avalons recent history such as follows:
(btw I would point out that over the years Avalons skills have been tighther and tighter
revised to eliminate obvious bugs that upset the balance0
Seers - poison addiction.
Loremasters - Portable Staves
Currently we have certain seers using their skills in very very effective ways but it
is as much to do with the way they use them as the relative \"power\" of the skil itself.
For example breldiar is both rare and costly as is aldesh - a determined seer can constantly
curse pessimism and hayfever from afar and leave the land if in danger.
This is multiplied by the heads skill - the actual cost of just staying in the land
becomes absolutely crazy and we are not talking about herb/poison use during a fight
You are correct that complaining often doesnt get things changed - this is true
but sometimes the perspectives of those using (or particularly suffering) from the skills
I am sure if babdidi cursed everyone on-line he could with pessimism etc
in a constant logging on and logging off cycle enough noise would be made to look
at both the skills and more inportantly the cures.
