Combat is going to CHANGE. There will be plenty of buffs to go around, but one of my major assumptions is that tanking ability is finally going to rest on the skill of the FIGHTER instead of the skill of the ENCHANTER. So your ideas about what a caster NEEDS to operate are probably going to change ...

Casters with high crit rate gonna own with these spells.
