    So I suddenly had an idea Id really like to see in UO. New stuff for magery...choose your elemental.

    You can if you are above gm magery or such...choose an elemental type to specialize in. Your spells will be elemental based...fire if you choose fire or cold if you choose cold. And some spells are completely changed once you specialize in an elemental type.

    For example Polymorp, its changed to something called Elemental Fury or something...and it will transform you to an elemental of your specialization type...fire elemental for fire and poison elemental for poison etc...each elemental specialization has unique powers...

    I dont know if this will be doable for the Devs to pull off, or even desired, but its one of the things I personally would love to see:)

    I like the idea, thats what i did like about WOW, you choose a class [e.g. magery] and then spend your talent points in different areas depending on your lvl, like going all fire or fire and shadow.

    Also it cost about 50 gold every time you wanted to respec but it was fun being able to have 100s of choices and ways to spec, granted there were best builds for different encounters but it cost a gold sink every time you wanted to change.

    If it makes the game more diverse, like some sugestions about changing items to different slots or styles so we dont all look the same and use the same template for the same specific enounter. Im all for it.

    We can already do this specialization in a round-about way.
    A few examples.....
    Fire Mage: Magery,Spellweaving

    Frost Mage: Magery,Necro,Mystic

    Poison Mage:Magery,Necro(and the poisoning skill)

    I've tried WoW and yes it does suck. Idea is nice, but I would be a little leary of making mass additions to the classic skill.
