Hi the1Weasel, everyone.
On one hand this makes wizards more powerful, <sigh>, but on the other hand, I like the idea of wizards specializing. Serious fighting wizard tend to have similar mixes of spells. If these talents are expensive enough that wizards just don't get all of them, then you might see wizards with a LOT of thrown spells. Which makes a wider variety of wizards you come across, which is good.

Warm regards, Rick.
