Title: Sustenance Divine
Post by: lurker on December 29, 2015, 08:46:22 AM
Refresh, being a divine spell, will often use the slot devoted to sustenance. For a druid who relies on sustenance in place of food or water, this can be very annoying in certain situations. For example, if the druid is running to a town while memming, and using refreshes, and then suddenly becomes hungry/thirsty. The current solution is to mem stop, memorize a sustenance, cast it, then begin memorizing your full allotment of spells again, but it's rather annoying.

I don't think making sustenance divine would be game breaking, and it would be a nice QOL improvement for a class that seems to be played rarely enough as it is.

mem a few refreshes so that it will preferentially cast those instead of the sustenance you need

Isn't that defeating the purpose behind refresh being divine?

I mean there are alternatives-

1- carry food & water because sustenance is unreliable
2- use create food/create water instead, since they don't overlap refresh slots
3- don't play a useless druid

It was just an idea to make the class more fun to play, since it seems there are very few druids being played.

or can get mass refresh so you don't have to use all your refresh slots to keep the group moving?
