This idea might sound like a huge change but I really think this would be a good move for xen2. It's frustrating at low levels when there's little to no mp steal and difficult to get mp regen and mp base at low levels. I think a new player would be happy to get a skill like spin or multi shot but then be dissapointed when they realise they actually need to be mid 20s to use them effectively. I know it's been suggested also that melee abilities costing magic power was a bit odd anyway.
The long and short is that from what I can see of xen2 it's much much harder being a melee so I'm just looking at ways to help em catch up.

I completely agree. I play a Darkwar and I use probably 500 or so blue pots every 15-20 minutes just leveling, with MP steal might I add. The lack of props on the gear you get from quests is hurting mp gain a bit because of no base mp or regen mp. I assume actual fighter types have it more difficult. Once you get to 23 and get hold of animus rings from the (found items!) drops it gets easier, but that's ring slots that you most likely need to survive in x2. Everything already 1-2 hits you unless you're 5 levels above it so the tueri or salubris rings are a huge thing.

Wow I though I might get easier later on. I would probably move to xen2 permanently if these issues were dealt with. I actually really like xen2 even though it gets a lot of stick.

I think rexor is exaggerating a bit, I'm in high 50's and use +2sci/VM/2VA's and I steal Magic Power fine with a duel steal 5%/5% weapon. I mean once in awhile ill use a maxi due to Magic Power being low from spamming multi on just a few mobs instead of a group. But It's really not too bad.

I don't know about being a lvl 65 how bad it would be from the Magic Power cost scaling per level but your still gaining Magic Power points each one of those levels as well so I wouldn't think it would be so terrible that your stealing virtually nothing back seems kinda crazy.

I haven't been a melee yet so I don't know how bad it is but I would guess it's not too great at low levels like you've said. Maybe Ej can lower the Magic Power requirements for melee's multi or another way to solve that at lower levels.

The biggest problem is the latest update having the attack speed increased in every mob,npc and player in game.

Even 2 va's is a lot just to be able to spin, that a lot of other primary stats to sacrifice. Out of interest what classes you two play? I've only tried warrior ranger and dw up to lv 15, wondering how a pally would do.

Both characters are Wizards. Mind my own business? What a nice guy.

But anyhow, you really don't have to worry about him saying..
"rofl im lvl 65 and need dual steal weapon 3 va rings and i dont even steal Magic Power back i have to use maximus potions better get used to it"

As there is no place to even acquire experience once your near 65. He makes 100k an hr, its not even worth hunting at that level until new high level hunting grounds are released.
But the good news is its very unlikely you'll be that level anytime soon so by the time you get that high, hopefully more hunting grounds will be out.
