Maybe taking some (or all) of the reserve system idea for active health/mana skills?
Level 2 racial balance:
I'm not horribly opposed to nuking it, though I'm much more in favor of keeping it. This goes along the same lines of my previous point. Nuking something because a few people who have dedicated time, energy, plus ludicrous amounts of money on this game to get their players above the norm of the rest of the player base is never a good idea either. There is a reason they are the way they are and in most cases it's because they've put in way more money than you to get those things.
Now I understand people don't like getting beat down by a credit card, but imperian has it's own class of citizens just like the real world. Sure it sucks when other people can fly off to wherever on their own private jet when you can't, but that doesn't mean you get to petition the government to outlaw private jets because you don't have one.
Just my thoughts.

Numbness, Epilepsy, Anorexia, Recklessness, Stupidity, and Sensitivity are all toxin-delivered brainmelt afflictions, and it's ludicrously easy for a decent Hunter/RG combination to push into lethal brainmelt range effortlessly. As for Enlighten, anybody who can stick asthma for a few seconds can trivially open up a window for an all-but-unavoidable enlighten with a very minimal amount of prep on the part of the Summoner(5s to build up taint). Neither of those scenarios are hard to do and I'd feel comfortable in arguing that they're both easier to set up than cirisosis.
There is no such thing as a 1v1-feasible affliction-based kill method that won't become exponentially easier when multiple parties contribute to it. You will end up with something nobody can feasibly use(Annihilate) or something that is easily achieved in a team(Brainmelt/Enlighten/Cirisosis). Deal with it or break it completely, those are the only real choices.
"On the battlefield I am a god. I love war. The steel, the smell, the corpses. I wish there were more. On the first day I drove the Northmen back alone at the ford. Alone! On the second I carried the bridge! Me! Yesterday I climbed the Heroes! I love war! I… I wish it wasn’t over."
I enlightened ALL THE TIME when I was Demonic and Iluv/Iroth/I were stealing each other's setups; we could enlighten in the space of a lovage smoke and we did so frequently. Aulani and Caelya were brainmelting all the time when we were Magick. You are not seeing those kills used now because Demonic doesn't fight and Magick's so clumsy that they had to order special velcro clownshoes.
Also, as far as Cirisosis goes? Shou isn't tracking; Shou is pushing the cirisosis button when somebody who IS tracking tells him to do it, much like how there are several priests/diabolists who just spam sap until somebody calls for an absolve/cath over the ring.
Ahkan said:Khizan is deliberately leaving out the differentiation between "this can be coordinated" and "this is actually coordinated." No one uses effectively brainmelt teams. Even the god of beta (elrith) can't track that well to ensure a 100% lethal brainmelt. Sure, they can theory craft up the doom scenario, but when push comes to shove the wheels fall off that bus and a rapid chain reaction of failure ensues
Aulani and Caelya managed to shove that wheel-less bus over half the world without a ton of difficulty, somehow. Lethal 100% of the time? No, but I've seen Shou miss a ton of cirisosis kills and a Brainmelt that's not an abject failure is still an excellent bit of burst damage. There's two reasons why you don't see it being used now. The first is that damage is easier and more effective and Druid/Mage is packing a crapload of damage. And the second is that Magick's coordination is abysmal and they have trouble with battle plans like "everybody just deal damage to the target".
If you switched the teams around and had Magick playing AM classes and AM playing Magick classes, you'd be crying about brainmelt right now and cirisosis wouldn't be a problem.
Ahkan said:-bloodfreeze was nerfed because it was a bad mechanic-defiler ate 2 nerfs (one live nerf) because it was a bad mechanic-standing ccut to the tune of 300 damage was a bad mechanic-spam bear skills were bad mechanicsI never said those things weren't bad Ahkan. I'm saying everyone flew off the handle and over reacted to a lvl3 runed out sitara to the point where anything but an arti sitara is crap and still is. Im all for fixing a bad mechanic, just not at the cost of reducing a class useless without artifacts. Again, you don't have to amputate a leg to fix a stubbed toe.Now with that being said, I don't know all the fixes mentioned for ciri because you know, it takes effort and stuff to read over a couple pages worth of this thread. If there is one worthy I'd probably back it. But right now all this sounds like what I assume people who died from a feint kiting predator (which I'm still baffled by, just leave when you see them kiting there is plenty of time for you to do so) sounded like. And yeah, I'm bringing that up, because of your reference to our low end first and second floor that has no elevator to the fifteenth floor.You see the problem with the class, why not approach the bigger problem instead of trying to fix something that is only an issue in a coordinated team fight and that in doing so only increases the buy in for that class?
