let's talk about Acriea

1.) You may use this spell to look through fumos and see if someone is holding their cuffs or not.
2.) You may use this spell to find someone using salvio hexia and locate where they are.

Is it really wise to give a high prestige spell the first ruleset? I've used this spell with these rules in mind and unprestiged snatchers are unaware of this spell's existence, they always get upset. This ruleset seems a little unfair and imbalanced for the lower prestiges who don't even know that this spell exists yet. It's unfair to newer players to have a high prestige spell that counters what fumos is supposed to provide. 


I feel like this may need to be tweaked in one of two ways:
1. To keep this ruleset, the spell should be a spell that's able to be given out and picked up from Wizardry. This way, players can get instruction on how to use/react to it, and any snatchers in the audience will be educated on what the spell's sound means so they aren't surprised when it's used against them. 




2. If the spell is not able to be given to lower or unprestiged people, then I feel we should not be able to use it to call out snatchers through fumos. This creates balancing issues and the only response is "lol just get higher prestige." High/Max prestige people are not as effected by this spell since they have access to it, know to swap out of cuffs when they hear the screech, and know how to evade. 

~~~

Guy might also want to consider adding this spell as a default spell for snatchers just so that have an opportunity to be aware of its existence. This is something I try to cover at snatcher meetings but they need something better than only knowing to put cuffs away when they hear that screech and retreat to somewhere safe.

This should honestly be a server suggestion tbh

rn all I can say is I agree or disagree, but that doesn't really do much

If it were a server suggestion, I would say Neutral

It could be like a 3rd or 4th year spell

the only down side is that more people could claim they used acrea when they didn't actually, or they could use it incorrectly, and etc.

As a 3rd option the spell could have a really high cooldowm (5-10mins)

I’ve thought about the imbalances of the spell in the past, I’ll probably put more insight to this when i’m not busy.

i guess that makes this is a bit of a hybrid feedback/suggestion thread  communicating: 
1: the feedback that this ruleset is not healthy and 
2: the suggestion to please change it or the way it's given out. 
- for this, i'm not quite sure what everyone's opinions are, which is why this post is here to invite others to give feedback about it

The problem I think we are seeing is that the spell is not in a good place right now but my suggestions alone are probably not what will be implemented. everyone should be invited to post their thoughts on what they should do with the spell- having this in server suggestion just gives people the opportunity to post whether or not they like my idea, and doesn't invite others or give an environment/platform to discuss or speak about what they think should be implemented.

Spells that have actual functions are way fucking cooler, then just having spells. 
could be tweaked, sure but there needs to be a particle effect when casting it. So people actually know you've casted it, longer cd, longer cast duration
