Imagine that - more spells and more options is more fun?
I miss changing armor and putting up curses (tongues, weakness, exhaustion, elements). Do I recast dots, shadow bolt, or drain mana/life? Should I cast Searing Pain so they kick the wrong school? Are they below 20% for drain soul? Now it's just throw up three dots and drain soul with no penalty on whether they are above 20%. Don't get kicked unless you need some free time to tab out and look at the internet (def not the BG forums from old AJ).
I miss that state of the game very much. Now we have to be creative with a very small toolkit to do so. Using uncommon pets with GOSac people laughing at us just to get a fun play-style and competitive play-style.
