it does, but the less people in your team u have to "hide" in while u r vulnerable and without mobility, the easier target u are, thus way less fun for the player. well, one of the problems is that casters performance is kinda measured with him having his own buffs up, but other classes dont seem to have that "ceiling" included by the devs with our buffs in mind so our buffs just supercharge them if u know what i mean. anyway, the question stands - if the class is so op, how come its nigh impossible to recruit them? probably coz the fun factor is lacking and the caster himself is more annoyed with PA than feeling op with it good portion of the time. i mean, knowing the mindset of people playing the game, rerol coupons should be selling themselves and u wouldnt be able to walk through heidel without tripping on 100s of fire pets, but situation is far far from that. just because something is needed, doesnt mean its fun to play or something along the line. most people dont like being enables for others to pwn and have fun while themselves are walking targets for everyone else.
