Amazing! I wonder what is the idea behind making gems cheaper and fortify potions more expensive? Also why some magics base mana requirement is increased?

What is the philosophy behind those changes.

From my point of view playing a mage is almost impossible at the beginning as mana goes away after few casts and my hero even have the lady perk for 1.0xintelligence mana boost. On the other hand of spells are very cheap it will be too strong late game as skill advancement make them even more cheaper.

Hm.... What if advancement in mage skills (conjuration/destruction/alternation etc..) improve spells efficiency/damage/cooldown? but also increase mana pool?

This means that basic spells can have very small mana requirement early on so the player can practice them more often and as they progress they will become stronger but more mana hungry.

Not sure if possible just decided to share some thoughts :).

Gems are plentiful, and it's easy to earn a fortune looting kegs in dwemer ruins.

Fortify attribute, in any form (spell/potion etc), is easily the most exploitable thing in the game. Lowering the magnitude of fortify potions makes it more difficult to stack effects, and making the potions more expensive will make it harder to stock potions without a hefty cost.

Base cost for resist/weakness to magica was increased due to the fact that they are way more useful (resists more effects) than for example resist fire/weakness to fire (which in turn needs to be cheaper than resist magica)

Base cost for detect spells were increased mainly because I felt it was too easy to create super-powerful detect spells for a low cost.

Although I have only recently added MR to my OpenMW, it seems like a great Mod ... does it add any quests, is there an MR story line/quest dependency writeup somewhere (link Pls).

I am not a programmer but it would appear eliminating Fortitfy would break the very nice Madd Leveler which would be a shame ... can you code in such a way as to make your changes without affecting Madd Leveler?

TIA for any response

Rebirth does not add quests, it focuses on environment and game play.

The upcoming prohibition of Fortify/Drain attribute spells just means you will not be able to purchase those spells anymore, it will not effect Madd Leveler or any other mod that might use those effects. This change can also be undone by other mods, for example, Tamriel Rebuilt has a spellbook that teaches Fortify Attribute.
