No it does not, please stop with the same basic flawed logic post over and over in multiple threads. It literally stays a fixed cost of your resource pool, if you want to go fight naked or have all the best in slot items, its going to cost a fixed percentage of your mana or endurance. In the same way it stays 100% escape from mobs +5 levels above you from now until EQ closes. By your logic you should be complaining every level you gain because of the new spell/ disc mana / endurance costs. Its a penalty for evading your foe or foes and getting out of jail free. If you don't like the cost you don't have to use it.
