Again this is one of those things that is completely against the PnP form but I think this would / could be a nice tweak and be very advantageous to the player base as a whole.

Way back when resist and protection from energy were single spells each type required a spell slot. I'm not sure which mod it changed in but the change was most definately welcome as it free'd up quite a few spell slots and offered more variety to the divine and arcane casters out there who wished to carry the spell.

I'd like to see a move towards migrating the stat buff spells to a similar fashion: First I have no idea what the icon would be named but this would contain in 1 spell slot the choices for arcane casters: Bull's Strength, Bears Endurance, Cat's Grace, Eagle's Splendor, Fox's Cunning, and Owl's Wisdom.

The spell slot for divine casters would be: Bear's Endurance, Bull's Strength, Eagle's Splendor, and Owl's Wisdom

The justification used for doing this to the resist and protection lines was that it made the spell choice a much more viable one for sorcerers who were forced to pick a specific one. The end resulted in many more people having these spells available to use and in no way broke the game.

I would really like to see this for the single target versions of the spell.

The difference is that in the source material, those are a single spell with different options. Each of the stat boosting spells are different spells; therefore, it's unlikely to happen.

No because I refuse to be expected to cast all of these on all party members through level 9 when I roll a new caster. :P :P
