I agree. This is where self-control rolls usually come in, but we don't have that to fall back on here. And this is why I would only allow it if appropriate, and even then only once or twice before demanding that the player put some points into buying it off. This should stop people from buying up Will for a once or twice per game effect. This sort of thing should be a rare exception and not a general rule.
