Invokers are balanced on the extreme of offense vs. defense. Changing them would have to add defense, but it'd ruin the point of having invokers at all. We'd end up just like another illusionist/elementalist class in between the extremes.

Perhaps your argument should go the other way and ask to have specializations added to the melee classes, Daz.

Downgrades in spells would only hurt the people with less eq...a small upgrade in melee damage wouldn't kill anyone as long as they don't become monks.

I'd suggest you play an invoker before you ask for them to be downgraded.

An invoker lasts <3 rounds in second gatehouse of jot without a good stoner,healer, and warriors. You can't cast 1 inferno in that time.
