That's an easy fix though -- make the XP cost to learn new talents something like (10 XP x number of talent points) x IQ Level of the Talent. So your 2 point talent at IQ 14 would cost 280 XP for a Warrior type, and 560 XP for a Wizard. A one point talent at IQ 8 would only cost 80 XP (though the Wizard would pay 160 XP).

Now everything is run the same way, and no relationships between the spell and talent costs are changed, other than the fact that low IQ talents/spells are cheaper than high IQ talents/spells -- which is what folks were saying was a concern about just having flat-rate costs for everything.
