Pimpin toons since 2006AVATAR
Someone is assuming barbarians only know how to swing a weapon.
hmm actually this seems to have been fixed with the hotfix? now they can be insta killed
to answer a few things
-yes i have other spells and use them, but telling a magister PM to switch to nuking is like telling a barb to use a bow, it can be done, but its not as effective. no i dont want easy buttons, i want spells to not be useless.
-i have no problem with enemy casters casting DB, this can be countered and maybe makes one or two encounters in a quest a little tricky, that is fun, that i can deal with. blanket immunity is boring.
-no i have mutiple toons, including wizard, favored soul, monk, barb, pally/fighter, artificer, druid, etc.
on another note i saw a group farming overgrowth that was for monks, and said everything is nothing only? they were sitting casting lotus and petals at the walls till the built a charge then would take turns clearing the waves. looks like PM are not the king of insta kill anymore
besides melee got such a boost with the destinies its hard to complain when you can hit for 5 digit numbers.
If our observations differ only because it was changed from Gianthold type immunity to 'fair' immunity then i agree with your original sentiment. Apologies if it sounded condescending after thinking you were simply confusing the two.
Also with dispel magic we agree, opposed rolls were not made with such large caster level disparities in mind surely. at least without things like Spell Breaches (which clear less but always work)
As someone who has played a PM, I have two phrases for the OP: Heightened Web, and Acid Rain.
Just because a PM specializes in insta-kill spells and negative energy does not mean that he/she is only capable of one school of spells.
I agree. Bring back blanket immunities!
That is what you asking for right?
Because it's not a thing that exists in the current game.
Not a single monster in ANY epic quest ANYWHERE has "blanket deathward". Period. They even took it out of challenges for no reason.
I wanted to call shade Wrong, but i just actually tried a Finger and it worked so... Gianthold Tor seems to have a weird version that uses the Death Ward icon and blocks negative energy damage (and mind spells) but not actual death spells. Gazzumped!

The rest is true, but seriously instagibs are the cheapest spells of all. I personally would very much like to see them gone (and yes, I played wizzies).
Why not allow insta-kill on red named, while we are at it?
I mean, some people worked really hard to achieve their DC's so why would they not be allowed to insta-kill red named?
If you worked really really hard on your DC's you can make a global wail effect which wipes everything on the server - a true epic moment - followed by a global announcement on who, guild affiliates, and paypal details (for support!).
We can then turn to eachother, give the thumbs up, and log out with a smile -- V for Victory!

Seriously, I went through the content on EH without issue, and halfway through it, I finally remembered that I had wail and FoD and finally started using them occasionally. I was so preoccupied with wisps (who I can't seem to instakill but man they sure like to hit me!) that I didn't even use my instakills that often. Instead, I used necrotic ray on wisps (fast reacharge, low sp cost, but I amped it up to almost one shot the wisps), horrid wilting and the plant creatures, along with polar ray, energy burst, and my trusty SLA's.
In fact, I rarely use FoD and wail...probably should, but then I wouldn't be "creative" anymore....

Gorgnak - Frenzied Barbarian, Krazig - Dark Knight Paladin
Xanapheia - Fighting Soul (18 FvS/2 Ftr), Addanc - Bearbarian Tank (12 Dru/6 Ftr/2 Brb)
Thelanis - Leader of The Dark Creed
Death Ward smacks down the SLAs and Necrotic ray standby, not just the instakills. Additionally the immunities of shrouds have largely vanished while still stopping us curing stat damage that we now suffer and the pets are scaling down from CR18 supernukers to CR ~11~ with the epic pet bugs. So yes, lately things have been frustrating no matter how you play your PM. The complaining is not just about death spells being less reliable (unless you're a monk with ein ofc )
None of that is dealbreaking to me... but it ~is~ frustrating and i see no point putting down folk who find it so~
