    This. I'm almost certain I remember a dev post shortly after the original magic revamp that made low tiers much better to spam that said they'd be looking into making high tier spells more attractive.

    For what it's worth, I'm happy with the nuking hierarchy atm, but I would really like to see MP costs re-evaluated as a whole. Tier I-III is pretty much fine, but IV and V get a bit too high in their cost. The cost difference between Stone >> Thunder should be lowered greatly as well, just as the damage gaps were. Stone I: 4 MP, Thunder I: 34 MP, base damage difference of 25. Stone III: 64 MP, Thunder III: 129 MP, idk the damage difference, but it's no where near double, as the MP cost is. It's just not enough to justify unless you absolutely need to be nuking an element besides Stone.

    What happened to this?

    At the very least you can make the tier V spells more MP efficient. Putting aside the fact that I personally don't believe weapon skill damage and elemental damage are properly balanced, there are adjustments that can be made within the magical tiers.

    Seriously a 4-5 step weaponskill from a Samurai deals 99k (capped) light damage. The argument that BLM should deal less damage since it doesn't have to be in range is crap, because all damage dealers other than RNG hit the hate cap and have to survive. The fact that they stated they were going to fix something, and suddenly they have no plans means I will likely take a break until it is implemented.

    do not EVER take such a promise as true. I direct your attention to the beast gear to accommodate reduction of a beast's level 99 thf pet's Treasure Hunter from TH3 (the TH of a naked 99 thf, like our pets) to TH1, the TH of a naked level 15 thf. we were promised the gear-despite SE's protestations to the contrary some forum posters saved the quote so we can prove it-and they announced later they said no such thing, all was well and just deal with things as they are. I mean it doesn't matter now since we no longer have thf pets that can be used in end-game so even if they had kept their promise it would be useless now, but that's not the point. The point is even a promise cannot be trusted. So your break until it is implemented (assuming you were serious and this isn't a phoney rage-quit like most) may very well be a permanent break.
