I ran recently into trouble while taking on the Arena.
A lot of creatures come with spells like Rupture, Apocalypse, Morph: Sorcery, Tsunami etc.
With the lastet balance pass these spell gems cannot be utilized without reduced mana cost, health cost and/or mana artifacts.
Therefore we can get an unwelcome surprise after choosing arena creatures - this is an additional handicap for we may reckon with actual using those spells.
- ban all spells that cannot be cast without artifacts/modifying spell gems
- modify all stronger spells with fixed reduced mana cost properties
- give any arena creature additional 20 mana via an artifact (if this is enough, Rupture cost 43 mana oO)
Maybe the dev team may also revise the new mana cost again in a later balance pass, this would be also reasonable.
Would be cool if you can make some final adjustments here.
Criticism, comments, additional ideas etc. are very welcome - thanks in advance
