I am little doubts about Bombadier enhancements, seems this enhancement will focus on spell, however there is no AOE damage spell SLA(and only one damege spell SLA for single target) before T5, since the Alchemist has a limite number of spell points and spell slots. I think that will be a quite difficult leveling experience before Lv12. Not sure any idea can make leveling easier when low level.
I also found a bug, Melt Lock seems no use to most chest, you can throw the project to the chest but nothing happen, no DC check, and the locked chest never open.

Wonderful world of Sorcerers. None of their SLAs are true AoE (unless you count Burning Hands...) before level 12 either.

At least Alchemists earn their first actual AoE spell at level 3, while sorcs have to wait until level 6.

I do agree about mana issues, and the Knock problem is one that has to do with most locks in the game having no targeting box, so the potion hits nothing.

Scorch is close range, but it's excellent AoE damage if you don't have to worry about fire immunity.

From level 4 through level 11, I'm casting Scorch as at least 1/4 of my total spells.

And if you level a wizard level 1-11 1/2 your spells will be magic missiles. I think this is what they wanted to avoid by not giving another low level OP SLA, it's hard to deny that sorcs and wiz's are so OP at low levels is by having a spell with an extra 225 spell power at level 4 which normally costs an extra 25 spell points(Like 1/20th your spell points) instead only costs 3 or so spell points.
