A lot of AOE spells could be shortened (especially Khrulhu and Mystic Collosus) I am also worried that forest lord might become the next Khrulhu .
One thing to add that I always notice and you may notice too. When casting a spell of a certain school against a creature of the same school, the spell hesitates for a second before the attack animation. For example, centaur freezes for a bit before firing a bow at a life creature. It would be great if hesitation could be removed.
