I have noticed for a long time, that on my level 100 , that pip usage is odd. Sometimes, it will use power pips when spells should use regular pips instead.
For example: - I have 4 regular pips and 2 power pips. - I use blizzard which takes 4 pips to use. - The spell then takes the 2 power pips instead of the 4 regular pips - This makes battling for me very inefficient
Why does this happen to me, and am I the only one? On my level 63 , I have not noticed this problem at all........
Ok, I get all of this, but how come it won't use the white pips first? When there are four of them to save space?
Because it's less efficient. If you have 4 regular and 2 power pips. You can cast a 4 pip school spell and then a 5 pip off-school spell net round. If done your way, you could cast a 4 pip school spell but you'd only have 3 pips left for the next round.
