- Some types of gnomes have a racial bonus to illusion spell DCs.
- There are very few DC-based illusion spells currently in DDO.
- Illusion spells will have to be added to correct this, and offer gnomes their own niche in DDO.
- Bards use illusion spells, or they would if there were any in DDO.
- More spell choices for bards is a buff for the class.
Of course, if Eberron gnomes *don't* get a racial bonus to illusion DCs, then I have no idea what gnomes will do in DDO.
