    So much information that says so little.

    So with any new release, often certain features tend to imbalance things. I'm always curious as to what will be imbalanced with SA and hopefully nerfed....some thoughts:

    Casting Focus
     A chance to resist interruptions while casting spells

    Interesting, if spellcasters have a reduced interruption rate, that would make it tough on melee's. Though this could balance things out:


    Hit Mana Drain
     Reduces the target’s mana by a percent of the damage dealt by the attack that triggers the effect


    Last, are we back to the old ninja animal forms tossing bola's and just eating up someone dismounted with this:

    o Infused Throw: The player infuses their throwing projectile with mystical power. The infused projectile will dismount the target if possible; otherwise it will temporarily stun the target. The target will be hit with chaos damage regardless of whether they were dismounted or paralyzed.

    I mean if a gargoyle can just dismount someone (while doing damage to them) from a distance and continue to attack from a distance while flying around while their target is dismounted....ouch...not sure if it works like this of course...

    hmmm the garg mystics sound a lot like Enchanters from Everquest... just need snare and haste.

    Actually, a lot of this reminds me of everquest. Everquest had a similar "loyalty system" (which they called "building faction") where you had to do quests or progress in game content to build favor which a particular faction before you could get access to some things, such as the soul forge or housing.

    It's kind of a good mechanism to force folks to go through the content. Hopefully the content doesn't suck.

    oh and it looks like one of the new weapon attributes gives a snare type effect (forced walking)

    I thought thats what the 'Protection' spell was for!

    Sometimes you'd rather be interrupted, like when casting blade spirits!

    Those take so long to cast, and if you have protection or casting focus, you're going to be hit several times before done. It would be better to take the interruption so you could run, go offensive, or heal.
