It's already weak, WoF is more of a signature spell.

However, you have to take into account why we are introducing local banking.
In New Dawn, its main purpose is to be a convenience feature.

Sounds pretty signature to me.

Heh ya i know i was just holding out hope as im going Necro/Air  :))

To me some schools have way easier to give up signature spells than others

We don't like the idea of removing social repercussions, including things done during InDev.
Even as a paid service it is something we're hesitant to offer on demand. The strict minimum would be an historic.
With that said, we heard the request. We'll confirm for the name changes.

For spell reflect, it is leaning on the signature spell side.
It is a spell that has not been "discovered" yet but can be strong in the right hands.
Note though that you have 5 title slots. You could go Air/Necro/Arcane and have 2 slots for utility/industry or combo+melee.

@Ub3rgames Thank you for coming around again on the name changes.

On the magic school titles (and others I guess would work the same), are you planning to have some sort of a scale of commitment in for launch or is that down the line or not planned anymore, meaning where you would take an air title and could choose to make it more effective (at greater punishment to effectiveness of other schools), or is each title just going to have a single value for its percentage impact on subskills, etc.

Additionally if you take multiple magic titles (say air/neco like above) do they cancel each other out at all, as in does air get negatively impacted from the necro title, and necro get negatively impacted by the air title, leaving the strongest benefit (if slight) to single school mages, or once you take the title for a school are potential weakenings of it from other titles removed?

For names, we meant that we'll get back to you guys on it once we get the occasion to talk with the rest of the team.

Commitment are for down the line. What we see as commitment will mostly bring new spell/abilities rather than raw power.
Different magic school should not cancel each other fully. It would still be a bonus, just slightly less.
Though the real advantage would be in the utility and signature spells anyway.

@Ub3rgames
On name changes, please fight for it, so many people have it as an expectation. I agree to an extent with not wanting social repercussions, such as after live launch starts there probably shouldn't be name changes, but lets be real, no-one really understood that the name they choose at the start of indev, which many people view as a beta (whether that's what you want to call it or not) would matter. An alternative solution would be to make meditation account based instead of character based so last minute re-rolls arent a big hassle, though that has some post-launch implications and doesn't sound like a very clean solution.

On titles, flavors still a thing for the pre-launch plan? ie not just signature spells, but things like fire knockups being locked behind titles?

You should also fix the big race camera fov issue before release and allow race change, beside all the stuff mentioned, this to avoid people chose the best comprimise race based on size and reach, aka humans and alfars.

My bet is a Q1 release, more realistic, too much stuff to test, and a London server.

This game was born and developed in Europe and saved by a European dev team stick to your roots Ub3r its where it belongs. Family is for life.

For flavors, we went with the magic overhaul approach instead of locking. Secondary effects are there, but weaker.
That way it gives a sort of showcase of what a deeper commitment could provide.

I would use it alot actually but NOT if it sucks without taking arcane title

My 5 title slots are already planned can't waste a third on magic just for Reflect (WoF is a noobtoob ability i welcome giving it up and the fact that less people will use it)

2 magic 1 melee 1 combo to allow the magic+melee 1 utility is my "light hybrid" plan

Otherwise im going full specialised melee archer pusher. One dimensional and a bit boring from lacking abilities but very powerful in the right circumstances if done right.I'm betting thats the spec thats going to pull off the most outnumbered highlight pvp videos

I've heard that London would have better ping to NA than Paris would.  However, according to https://wondernetwork.com/pings they're pretty much equal to Toronto.  Does anyone have any alternative sources supporting faster ping from London to NA, compared to Paris to NA?
