Maybe 5 CP per level of the target? Small enough to push you over a threshold, not big enough to break much.

That sounds good. 10 would be overkill, and 5 is a nice round number.

I like the IMAWAL and CYDSTEPP changes, but not WONAFYT. That glyph is already great, especially if you know how to use it.

With CYDSTEPP, it might be more appropriate to have it cost the regular amount +2 to cast when exhausted, but drain all remaining mana . This let's you cast it as a last-ditch effort but not stack it consecutively. It also prevents double CYDSTEPP + first strike or fireball combos.

CYDSTEPP doesn't exhaust you. I think.

I'm certainly on record as a "WONAFYT is fine" person. Perhaps even great.

No, CYDSTEPP is now just completely non-castable when below full health (unless you're a warlord)

I'm looking forward to the day I spawn EM and Binlor on the same map and find both early when I'm running Apothecary prep. Join EM, make a couple of dozen statues, convert, break EM's altar, Burn Salve from Apothecary to remove the Corrosion stacks, break the dozen statues, and have superbly ridiculous stats (after expending only 800 mana or so. Heh.)

That being said - aside from EM, there's very little reason to go around making statues unless you stone a level 1 right before you take down a level 7 at level 3 or something. However, if you make the statues movable/breakable without ENDISWAL/PISORF/KB screwery, then you take away the heaviest drawback (against low-level targets, anyhow.)

Speaking of stoning, I found out that apparently stoning a L8+ no XP mob denies you the Unstoppable badge - think Revenants in Hexx. I think stoning no XP mobs shouldn't penalise you like that. Of course that makes them pretty ideal for petrification targets so long as you aren't trapped entirely.

Game balance is hard. :p

Try early EM into JJ. Easy petition, and if you desecrate her right before getting chaos avatar JJ cleans up the mess.
