I cant! Now I'm torn between huge burning stacks and potion shennanigans! And I hate retaliate fireball like the plague, and I'm unsure about making potions and more powerful! Arrrgh! And untill someone else votes mine will be the decisive one as far as the poll is concerned! And if someone votes one I'll think of the downside and vot for the other and it'll be tied again! Arrrrgh!

Err, why not add a third option - they replace avatar's symbol with the fireball thingy due to the north being all magey and mystical and all that, and stick the cauldron in Naga City?

It would certanly lively up the game, give the northern reward some sense, and reduce the horrible horrible tension of this conundrum! Arrrrgh!

(Voted Cauldron. Possibly want them both in. Voted with 0 testing on the "I know what I'd do with something like that and don't want fireballs chucked at me even if it works in my favour". Which is not really decent thesis material.)

Voted. Vote is based on zero testing. Not sure an entire new way to play paradigm is a good choice at this stage even if it is a vicious reward. Unless ALL of the vicious rewards encouraged a new way to play.

Nice job! (I hope that didn't come off as patronizing...)

I wouldn't panic too much about a single poll vote swinging our decision. We pay much more attention to the actual discussions it generates :P

Well, the percentages are on the Mage Fist side, that's for sure :D

Hmm... I'm starting to like Mage Fist more, unless curse applies to the cauldron.

If I read the patch logs, this was both an outright big buff to Mage fist, and a long time due nerf to illusions moving them from "wtf u kidding me" roadblocks into a more manageable PITA teritory. :)

Curious about the cauldron though, it looks more interesting. But adding curse to the roster... Might be too good to be true and need a cap of some sorts if so.

Well, the cauldron doesn't multistack on a single effect type anymore, so it's more spread out as opposed to strictly more powerful.

Err, I beat Naga City and all I got was this pair of boots. Where's the cauldron at?

Win it again until you get the cauldron.
