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

Given that higher IQ spells are both more complex and have greater effects, this seems like a good compromise in spell learning.

Naturally, for non-Wizard types, the cost would still be three times as high (i.e., 240 XP for that level 8 Spell, and 600 XP for that level 20 Spell).
This is really good! Also, it can scale with different XP talent costs.
