Yes, see and that's what a normal poster would do. Agree, because it's common sense that this is a bad change. It is a good spell to change, but not the good way to change it.
So many things could have been done;
1. Spell removed
2. Cooldown given
3. Mana cost increased but not to 63,000
4. Arcane Blast type of mechanic
Instead they do the worst, give some retarded mana cost, therefore promoting insane amount of RNG, mages will still get important spells of in first steal, but the luckier ones will do. Why do you want RNG and 0 skill mechanics in the game? lol. this change just makes the game worse in general, maybe better from your pov, but certainly not from other players pov. so yes you're biased felic
i agree, the 63k mana change is lolwuut when your trying to get bop off with steal ;< atleast mana shield is gone, no more mana drain on dmg taken
