Very interesting design, can't wait to try it out in our home game (w/ a couple tweaks). Only real problem I have is that in the initial few levels it gives Lightning Affinity as an option, but then forgets to carry on w/ that path later on in the design. If the original designer sees this, please go back and add a Lightning path!

Thank you so much for the review. I greatly appreciate it, and hope that you enjoy the class.

Unfortunately, the Lightning Affinity was a path that was a part of the class in the beginning. However, various playtesting and tweaking showed it to not be a viable option. Lightning is not as abundant as the other elements, so players were left with less opportunities to utilize their affinity outside of simply casting spells, and adding other abilities to compensate moved it away from fitting with the class itself, either making it too powerful, or turning it into something completely outside of the vision for the Elementalist class. In the end, it was scrapped completely to keep the class clean and balanced. A lightning focused element path is something I'm working on, but it will more than likely be in a subclass of something else where lightning based abilities can simply be added without total reliance on the element.

Again, thank you for the review and the feedback. It is always appreciated, and I hope you have fun playing an Elementalist. I had a lot of fun making them.
