Re: 3.5 Slowing Down the Tier 1-2's
Thing is, we are going epic... so the DM gave us non-casters a way to keep up called "Aether" influence where we basically just start to embody an aspect of the universe... (life, death, change, order, energy, matter, void, hate, fear, valor, etc, etc) But that's beside the point. The point was that mages/ clerics/ Psions/ Druids/ etc do NOT need level 9 spells to be OP, and can easily pull nasty stunts without 1-shoting BBEG and hopelessly overpowering all martial classes forever. Even access to level 6 spells will put you leaps and bounds above people with no spells, after all, and the DM won't have to break things so that mundanes can keep up.
