Subject: Re: Mass Spells?

The Minor Mental circle will not have any traditional mass spells. Instead, we're implementing a new type of group spell that we call "focus". Only one focus spell may be active at a time, as they are strong spells and require the caster's attention to maintain. Once cast, they will act similar to cleric and paladin group spells [Edit: Paladin spells not included]; if you leave the room from the caster, the effect will fade. We're using updated logic to give players a better chance to regroup with the caster before losing the effect so you won't lose it for just leaving the room for a few seconds (like during a climb); if I recall, it'll give you at least a minute to regroup.

For the Minor Mental circle, the two focus spells will be Mind over Body (1213) (reduces the stamina cost for all abilities) and Focus Barrier (1216) (+DS). Savants will have additional focus spells to pick between in the Major Mental and Savant spell circles.
