    I admit I don't play paladin characters very often and when I do, I usually rez other characters with bandages; however, I could swear that casting Noble Sacrifice used to be pretty rough on the casting character. They lost almost all their hit points, mana, and dex.

    I just now accidentally cast the spell on my archer on Origin and noticed that all it did was take a small amount of her mana. Cast it again with the same result.

    Has it always worked this way and I'm just thinking of a different spell, or did this actually change??

    I don't think it redlines you unless you have a valid target within range, now.

    Noble Sacrifice will only drop your HP and Stamina if there are pets or other people around you. If nobody is there, then it only drops your Mana the required amount to cast the spell.

    I love having high Compassion with my Chiv characters. It's nice to be able to res a bunch of people with some life and stuff so they aren't Res-kill bait:)

    I was once tanking at the Doom gate (back when it was possible, and before the rise of the Sampire made most doomers solo artists), being healed by a person behind me, when a series of unfortunate events dropped most the people at the gate. I hit Noble Sacrifice while still tanking the DF, ressed 6-8 people to 80% HP with knight of sacrifice, and somehow lived.
