    Glad to hear you say it. Please consider doing it for each damage type, just as you do with resists.

    If it does it for every spell and hotbar item... I can just imagine there being quite a bit of lag every time I swap my scepter/staff.

    I do want to point out that this spellpower system is still a lot simpler than the old system, which had weird multipliers and such. THAT needed better game-info.

    Still, this information would really help explain what stacks with what.

    That's certainly simple enough - but there's a thread somewhere showing that equipment and enhancements are giving 0.5:1 and only feats are giving 1:1 - the question is (along with the effects of THF, TWF and Shield lines vs Natural fighting for shifted forms), what is the situation supposed to be, vs what it is?

    I know they're going to be working on all this stuff - it's just frustrating that it wasn't ready in time for the launch.

    So can we look forward to a new improved not-six-year-old character sheet in U15? Numerous threads on the forums describing what is needed.

    • Repair

    • Healing/positive

    • Light

    • Good (or alignment? Is there a way to boost lawful/chaotic damage?)

    • Negative

    • Universal

    Did I miss any?

    So, doing this, spellpower would practically need its own tab. HOWEVER, I would actually LOVE a tab that just listed all the various complicated totals of random status - Like various spellpowers, Spell Resistence, Perhaps total situational bonuses like saves vs. enchantments, save versus poison/disease, saves versus traps.

    OR, alternately, it'd be nice to see total spellpower and/or *modified* damage output of spells on the rollover tooltip, in the same way we can see the modified spellpoint cost and DCs.
    They could do a drop down for things like Spell Power or saves with multiple bonuses. There's really not much I'd need to see at a glance, but this stuff should be on the character sheet.
