I just had a flash of briliance, or rather, I believe I just had a flash of briliance.

How about they buff it back up but make it a - Lvl 3 Alch prep :)

That way you can't get both it and the seal, and you can still prep an item on top of it.

Tell me where I'm wrong.

It's not a seal. Perhaps if they changed it to a purple seal worth 300 points, then yes.

Also, it removes even the slightest incentive to take the conversion seal. Other than the two issues, it's GREAT!

Make it count as a seal, that's easy to fix.

And as for the second thing - make the scroll really cheap, and the stone really expensive to prep and bob's your uncle. That'd also fix the "do I prep this or not issue", but it aught to be really expensive.

That would be a pretty massive buff across the board. It would be as much of a no brainer as prepping Whupaz.

1) how does the elf extra conversion benefits work in relation to the burndayraz "sweet spots" for pure casters? As in, the math.

Conveniently, every 5 MP is one extra fireball (presuming Mystic Balance) and 2 extra MP from potions. So a sensation stone (4 MP) is just short of one "notch" in that regard, and we can almost completely ignore thresholds in this analysis.

Given that conversion-heavy elves have significant regen issues, I'm actually not concerned with this combo at all.


The way it is/was was really counter intuitive...

Maybe add to its description text "This would look great in my locker!"

It would have to stay at its current 150 value, and it'd be fairly well-balanced against the translocation scroll. That would still require a complete rework on the other seals, though...

True about the other scrolls, but I'd say that's a good place to put it, and a fine thing to put in the alch lvl3 slot...

Well, that settles it. It definitely should work that way.

Ok, so if the devs decide it's a fine idea and implement it, yadda, yadda, fingers crossed that they do, they should make it a crminaly expensive prep to emulate the "relockering" effect. Or not considering the new economy.

What about the other scrolls, where are we with all that?

Well, if Sensation Stone becomes an alchemist prep then the conversion seal is utterly redundant and should be axed. Transmutation Seal would probably be fine if we got a stack of them rather than a single one for the prep.

How about 3, costing 11 apiece?
