Since it got brought up in the Meld Skills review, let's go ahead and bring the conversation here and start plotting what we'd like to request when the new reporting system opens up? I think workshopping it could be handy before the system happens.
I've seen suggestions before to just mirror demonmarks and call them something else, but it was argued they didn't want a reskinned version of it. I think it would improve Celestine combat quite a bit and make them more than just people who use Sacraments more than actual Celestialism...
IF making a reskin isn't to taste, what about something to coincide with the Heretic and Infidel abilities? Nihilists have Wrack and can be setup using excruciate almost reliably (3 or more marks) so what if we changed Absolve to have two methods of firing?
Absolve Method 1 - Target is below 50% mana, 8 power cost (as is right now)
Absolve Method 2 - You have marked a target as a Heretic, 70% mana and 4p
So the second method would require Heretic (3p), waiting for window to Infidel (3p), waiting for window to Absolve (4p) and would need the 70% or less reserves. Would make it fairly consistent, costly, and not something that is done in ridiculous build up. Just mostly want to get a conversation started, even if my ideas are crap, let's do this!
