Re: Xp costs be gone
The general opinion amongst the optimization-inclined seem to think that the XP cost is actually not enough of a drawback to hamper a wizard from loading up on all potential backup spells one might need (scrolls). That's pretty much part of the whole Batman wizard that gets thrown around.
Consumables are there to avert death, which drains experience anyway. Permanent items are investments and should pay for themselves anyway.
The reasoning being that trading a small bit of XP for power, here-and-now, is worth it. For example, boosting your intelligence using a Headband of Intellect.
Seems odd that you would rather go on another quest for power components rather than just spending the XP up front and recouping the losses later. Same end result anyway -- you have to quest to get what you want and to advance.
