Re: Summoning Change: Essence Investment, Remove Limits

In the long run, no it doesnt matter. In the early game tho, every point counts. So why do it, summoners are not OP in the early game, and as Sar points out, you just push players away from the school on eventually false pretenses.

Typically you have more than enough resists in a game to trivialize all but the worst situations.
