    The devs insist it's WPA vs WPA for success, and target Guild% for duration. Because why not require this much for simple support spells? And why shouldn't Paladin spells be easy? Okay, forget easy. How about easIER than offensive spells? You can more readily damage an enemy effectively than support an ally effectively, which seems backwards. Why take a personality's only meaningful bonus and make it unreasonably difficult to succeed with?

    it should definitely be harder to cast self spells onto someone else than to cast them onto yourself. You just got done saying offensive spells are too hard, now you are saying they are easier than pally spells. There is nothing easy about magic, it's hard, try it at home and you'll see.

    I know the wiki doesn't say it anymore but my gut tells me that guilds are still always a factor for spell success even for offensive spells. It used to be included in the wiki for mod wpa calculations.

    Guild % affects both self spell success rate and duration. Guild % affects offensive spell duration, but not success rate.

You're giving every province in a kingdom almost full Elf magic defense and Halfling thief defense. In my kingdom, we've got Mystics failing Fireballs on targets that have been massacred thrice already and throwing up their arms in frustration. The whole thing seems surreal and that's even with just an 80% Barrier; we didn't even bother casting when it was stronger. Is this the common experience? If so... why does this exist in the game?

    Thanks for not blaming me for my deeds of the past. I was simply uninformed and did not take into account the majority of people in utopia who actually like the new changes. But I understand now that this was a selfish act. Mechanics are great this age.

    All active ritual spells should be removed upon entering war and any rituals being "constructed" should be reduced back to zero at war start.

    There are simply too many defensive buffs in the game as it is.

    Failing ops is not fun gameplay.

    Barrier is quite nice, but if every kd in the world does the same thing it gets stale. More varying rituals are needed.
