Make End Transformation Ability Faster

As of right now the 'End Transformation' ability takes 1.5 aut to end your current transformation. I propose shortening it to either 1.0 aut or instant. Reasoning:

  • Having longer than 1.0 aut incentivizes keeping "Beastly Appendage" around on transmuters for the sake of quickly cancelling other forms to run away or use wands.
  • On fast race transmuters (Felid and Spriggan) it may be a -disadvantage- to have higher spellpower, since the form change loses your speed advantage keeping you from being able to run immediately (needing to use a 1.5 aut action to do so).
    • This leads to 'walking away' to make the form end, which is a tedious behavior.
I'm beginning to feel like a Cat God! Felid streaks: {FeVM^Sif Muna, FeWn^Dithmenos, FeAr^Pakellas}, {FeEE^Ashenzari, FeEn^Gozag, FeNe^Sif Muna, FeAE^Vehumet...(ongoing)}

Re: Make End Transformation Ability Faster

the delay is actually added to your delay for casting another form spell, which is weird and kills people a lot, but it does mean you can't do the beastly appendage thing anymore
