Why couldn't all powers have just had their "Mana" use reduced? Why couldn't there just be tiers to each power tree. 1. Low damage/Range 2. Mid damage 3. High damage/Melee Toss in some DoT's and PI's here n there. Add hidden clips that are not displayed anywhere. Make it so people have to figure it out on their own, or be told by an in game colleague. Then balance out Weapon the same way. Make Weapon damage slightly less than Powers (since Powers use Mana). Of course, any Powers that deal Precision damage would have to be converted over to Might. That was a huge mistake to begin with. If everything was simplified down this way, we could play ANY power set and all have the same opportunity to deal damage. We've wasted years messing around with Powers, and will never get anywhere. AM's just made everything even worse. Now we either use the exact same, preplanned, five tray powers, or we're going to srverky under perform. What a complete waste of all those other powers. Can't we just go back and make everything simple?
