Does something look out of the ordinary here? http://i.imgur.com/fFDWdzo.jpg?1

You have here a row of arcane spells: Magic Missile, Arcane Bolt, Chain Missiles, Arcane Blast, and Force Missiles. All force spells, yet the last spell isn't an SLA like the others. Instead you get Fire Shield. This doesn't really seem to make a lot of sense. All the other SLA's are ranged spells, affected by force power (except for gust).

Anyone else agree with me on this? A Force Missiles SLA would be awesome, and would be nice to get more use out of my metamagic feats.

Yeah would be lovely. But I have to say of many of the buff SLAs fire shield is one of the better ones.

While on the topic I'd love to be able to at least heighten arcane bolt and blast so they aren't completely worthless. Bolt isn't terrible for a couple of levels but blast is worthless by time you get it.

This would be nice, quicken would be pretty sweet as well.
