I think there is a bug because till now we can’t see any answer from devs about problems with mages. Might be bug, there is no answer to any of those posts. Maybe we just cant see them. Please look into it
@Aenwyn did respond to one of the recent mage threads but that was pretty much it.
Beyond that I didnt see any actual dialogue or a statement regarding bugs and balancing.
If Iam not mistaken I’ve seen only 2 answers regarding mages which one of them was about some dev playing fs/ig nothing else and 2nd one was asking what they could change
That was Aenwyn’s post, don’t know about the other one you mentioned.
