The aging spell states the tick tock turns will be modified. It now consumes the states Distortion and Aiming. Do you really have faith in Ankama not to nerf this powerful combo with Hand?
Xelors Punishment is minimum range of three. You can no longer hit a target in Lock range of the Xelor.
First turn is a reduction of 75% elemental dmg. Sure you can build up to 100% eventually, but you need to spend AP on other spells. Currently I dial up and destroy anything i want. I don't waste ap on sand glass when i could cast another punishment instead. Punishment is also two max per turn. Casting this 4 times a turn was common before. Hands initiative loss is lowered.
Ankama does what Ankama does. There are certainly some nice spells to use after revamp, but until I get to test them out, or Ankama gives me some numbers to play with, I'm skeptical.
