Since I hear some WF players whining about their bad heal amp and how weak this race is compared to others. I find this totally not true.
And while WF may not always be the best choice for melee builds, for arcanes they are.
Now I hate to play WF because they're fugly. But rolling a non-WF sorc or wiz (who isn't PM) feels gimped from the start.
Gaining access to repair spells by going WF, this (at least to me) seems to be the only logical choice. And this sucks.
So please remove the lvl3 Artificer pre-req. from the construct essence feat so players are able to build non-WF arcanes who at least got some gimped down repair spells at the cost of one feat slot and 50% heal amp. This would not be OP.
Or at least you could change construct essence to require either 3 lvl Artificer or Artificer past life feat (passive).
If this isn't possible at all, please remove the repair spells from arcanes, since artificer is now ingame and wiz/sorc were never meant to have those anyway. This way I wouldn't feel gimped rolling a fleshy arcane.
