Default Re: Should all spells be equally easy to learn?

What is odd about disenchanting magic items is the following sentence from Dissolve Enchantment: "The DX and damage bonuses on enchanted weapons and armor may also be removed by this spell at a cost of 50." Even if you assume that one casting of the spell removes all the DX/damage bonuses, that's still 5 times more expensive than casting Remove Thrown Spells 5 times for the same effect. (Yes, you might not succeed 5 times in a row with Remove Thrown Spells, but you almost certainly wouldn't spend 50 ST getting the 5 successes.) The only way I can see anyone ever using Dissolve Enchantment for this purpose is if they don't know Remove Thrown Spells.
