If you read the notes you'll ofcourse see the upcoming changes. I'm not really excited about the evocation tick fix, its nice to gain that bit of extra mana, but if the tick fucked up its not exactly something i'd lose sleep over. I have a mana ruby and ooc eating/drinking as another backup, evo is usually secondary or tertiary priority for me, and with my current setup i'm not exactly going out of mana that much anyway. What i'm a bit displeased about is the fact blastwave is still looking like shit, even after PMing a GM they don't seem to class it as a bug either, they just say "Please post this in the suggestions forum" which is a bit dissapointing really, changing the spell itself also dosent seem to effect it much , the radius change for the Blastwave spell seems to be indefinetly universal, i've tried hellfire in its place, but it dosent feel right either.
I'm sure its possible to get it back since you can change the way and radius other spells look, hopefully someone can come up with something. Poly at 10 seconds? I suppose its a bit of a pain but nothing major really, most of the time you're sheep juggling or re-sheeping early anyway to have that extra security,
