    Why are there spells which the caster cannot refresh ?

    While some spells can be re-cast while being in effect, some other spells cannot.

    If one tried to refresh them, a message pops up "This spell is already in effect".

    For example, that is what happens with Spellweaving's Gift of Life spell.

    Yet, there can be times when one might want to refresh it before it expires, rather than have to wait first for it to expire in order to be able to cast it again.

    It's the same issue with Divine Fury. It's part of the game mechanics and is intended as far as I can tell. You have a display available that displays when it is in effect. Use it, live with it, and learn to adapt. This game wasn't intended for people to just numbly click buttons.
  3. I would like to see a change in this with mysticism. Enchant weapon spell should be refreshable like bless and most other spells. :thumbup1:

    Because all spellweaving spells have a cool down timer on them, thus can not be used hap hazardly

    Gift of Life is about the only spell that should be able to refresh from recast. It has no cooldown so anytime you wish to reinvest the mana and cast time in it you should be able to refresh its effect timer

    This might be mechanically true, but does not mean it should be able to, heh does not even mean it should not have a cool down. But I would agree if it did not have a cool down then I see no reason for it to not refresh.
