Ya both did tiamat. Ya both rock. For those of us not in a guild, the only thing watching both DSR and Shadows argue means is that we don't get to zone as much with either group and have less fun with friends.

Just a thought..... Group haste would haste the mages/clerics in the group too and up the chances of a ripo or two towards them in some fights.

Warriors beat invokers on soloing ability from day one. In the 20s or so for levels when our spells do more damage vs a mob's hp, we flee to heal a few less times, but that's also with decent +hp eq. No protection spells/skills, no pets, no healing don't make for a soloing class at all here. I wish ...
