Quote from: mansa on April 16, 2021, 12:47:43 PMThe thing I dislike about full mage classes was the inherent end game focus of these character tropes. I rarely witnessed a long-lived full mage who didn't attempt to focus solely on their element and attempt to go down that path.Every single one that I saw attempted to become one with their element, and it was their end-game storyline quest.It's like how blue robed templar's goal is to become a red robe templar....And how a political noble's goal is to become a senior noble.The game doesn't readily allow you to focus on something else, if you don't have the ability to be successful in that something else.It's just there's nothing else to do when you're playing a mage, primarily as a mage. You don't have any combat skills, or many crafting skills. You're pigeonholed into a role and the way the game responds to your progression puts you on a singular storyline.

Quote from: th3kaiser on April 16, 2021, 09:42:01 AMI'm going to be completely honest here. New mages are probably a bit stronger codedly (in most cases), but the removal of full magickers started my slow slide to stop playing. I've thought about this quite a bit and it's all down to the time investment. Full guild magickers let me roll up a PC, do a moderate amount of spell training and be able to jump into the game with a useful playable PC. I just don't have the time to grind out mundane skillset after mundane skillset anymore. And yes, I know lots of you enjoy playing social PCs who don't use many skills and the like, but I do not.

Quote from: chrisdcoulombe on April 29, 2021, 03:42:01 AMIf you build a relationship with another character for years and find out they are a magicker the only default go to is to hate them, which I find forced and makes for bad story telling because the reality is you would have conflicted emotions. Even if you hated magic, if that person was your best friend, they were still your best friend for many years. I think that the magick hatred is overwhelmingly pushed and a nuisance that hurts role play, and it takes away from the game. I have almost quit entirely because of it twice. I'm not saying that means in general there should not be IC hate toward witches, but I also don't think hatred should be forced without consideration to the situation, which has been my experience; twice.
