Making it non-stacking would be pointless, since we already have the Battlemage Ring. Wizards would be completely broken with cheap BURNDAYRAZ.
Again, Fire Heart only buffs Fireball, so it can be adjusted to whatever is balanced, or even removed if Fireball doesn't need it anymore.
Paladins, in the meantime, would suffer unnecessarily from the nerf to HALPMEH.
Well we'd have to see just how much it hurt Paladins. In any case, I think they'd still be better than Wizards are now.
If the goal is to encourage Wizards to use fireballs more often, how about this: Wizards start with BURNDAYRAZ in their inventory, as a small item, but lose their glyph sense and other glyphs remain large items (they'll still get the usual 5 glyphs on the map, randomly selected but without an extra BURNDAYRAZ).
This would still leave HALPMEH as generally better for every class and Wizards especially.
