Err... Are you serious?! :shock: You get tired of casting a spell that lasts about half an hour? If it really is true, I don't really want to think of your opinion of spells like haste, blur, stone, dragonscales and the like... :? Besides, those spells increases the probability of me being too small for mobs to bash me :D

It works fine for already small races. Gee, something that small races can benefit from getting removed, there's a new one.

Dwarves, elves, gnomes, halflings... All become !bash to medium sized and large sized mobs while reduced, last I checked. Humans, barbs are still bashable, because they don't get reduced enough.

Quit complaining. You sacrificed some !bash-ness to play the easy races. Or a shaman as the case may be, since they can only be barbs... Maybe we should campaign to allow Grey elf shamen. :)

*woooot* I agree! After all; that necromancer guild in Leuthilspar has been abandoned far too long :cry: Someone should move in, and if not necromancers and illusionists, who is left? :wink:

Gods no, the enchanters can keep him. Kwirl is infinitely more useful than a daz.

What I mean is... The spell seems to work well on alot of classes. Not Yuan-Ti. We as Yuan-Ti have a hard enuff time (ill save that for another post). I would like to see reduce work for Yuan-ti also. :?


The more and more I learn of Yuan-Ti, the less and less I want play them.
Such a pity.. Such a waste...

im trying to level a cleric, since casting 30+ buff spells a fight isn't as fun as i thought it would be (one day i'll have time stop - and you will ALL suffer horrible spam) but after leveling as an enchanter and realizing
the inane pointless boredom of it all, i don't know if my warrior or cleric will ever approach level 40 again, much less eyeball 50.

ress quest? hah, only if i dont figure any of it out myself. there are people who take pride in figuring those things out. im not one of them in this case.

enchanter is definitely a class you must ENJOY playing to be effective ... my chanter doesn't have time stop, but i love the spellups .. often times i have to be told not to globe or haste cause to me its all routine and part of my job, as are group reduces ...

people send me o god im sorry tells when i am asked to fly all, scale all, or whatever .. and i shrug ... i love the class .. i love my character .. i don't mind spellups at all .. if i did.. i'd play warrior (o wait i have one of those too)

i also always thank the group leader for lettin me play telina .. i do love the class so much :)

Edit: keep in mind i also have a resser and a ghealer i love to play too, but man Ogre memtimes pwn me! (quick mem, FEH!)

Hum... For me the pointless boredom is standing there having triggers that autoassist, autorescue, autobash, circle, backstab and whatnot... (ok I might be exaggerating :P) That is things that make me fall asleep, especially if it is getting late at night/early in the morning. So, what keeps me awake at those times is having to type at the keyboard... However, what annoys me as an enchanter is not doing spelling up, but group leader saying spell up, and then later tells me globe that tank, and scale that tank (as if I don't know they haven't gotten their spells already :twisted:) And not to mention general rudeness while standing around in Waterdeep or some other place I idle :oops:, where some of the people obviously expect me to look at the screen all the time (and not to mention see says), being complete strangers, using commands and orders, not questions, and a type of language not even my RL friends would use in talk to me, and get more or less pissed off when nothing happens. But THAT I know I'm not alone of finding annoying. Some people obviously haven't learned what that gate on the beginning of Black Griffin Road can teach you :P

(Ok, just had to vent the pressure a little before going back trying to figure out these mildly insane accounts. :()

Reduce is not intended to be the be-all end-all bash protection spell. There is also no "unbashable" weight/height - it's all relative to who is trying to bash you. It's not likely to protect you much from a race of a very similar average size, though it will become more useful as the creatures attempting to bash you get bigger.

I hope that makes sense.

I hear humans get a special attack while reduced in Jot, but only while tanking rhemo's. You all should try it.

On a constructive note, I haven't had any bash problems with any race that I don't think should bash me.. I reach around 15 inches, 39 lbs after reduce -- what sizes are you attaining currently?

I forgot to mention in my earlier reply that the effectiveness of Reduce/Enlarge is highly dependant on the skill and level of the caster..
