    Do you think there is a reason that they won't let mages cast LP fields from time to time? I think it kinda sucks, poisoning is such a hard skill to raise, they should throw the mages who take the time to put it on their template a bone.

    I'm a massive fan of nox on both dexxer & mage but unfortunately since it became so easy to cure it's lost it's way.
    I'd like to see it as;

    If Magery & Poisoning = 220 real skill - Level 5 Poison Fields.
    That would bring back fuctionality to the nox mage.

    I agree with this totally. It probably won't work for your builds, but I put necro/ss into mine and cast Evil Omen on stuff before I cast field which grants lvl 5 poison. It's more hassle to time it all and cast two spells to accomplish that, but it sure is fun to see the lethal poison land. Magery+Poisoning = 220 granting level 5 poison field makes a lot more sense to me though.

    Only if they make the poison harder to cure, and put a timer on cure potions. Drink one, it fails, you need to wait x amount of seconds before you can try again. But make the second chance to cure higher then the first. That would be a balanced approach to poisoning and curing IHMO.
