The 8th pip

As we all know, at this point in the game you can only have a maximum of 7 pips in battle, or 14 if you get full power pips. What i'm suggesting is that we add an 8th pip, because as new worlds come out new higher ranked spells will to, right? I mean it's gonna be impossible to cast a 14 pip spell unless you have 100% power pip chance. And even for spells ranked 10, 11, 12 will anyone really waste so many rounds just to cast a spell that maybe won't even kill?
Your thoughts?

Not true, I see people get 7 power pips all the time, and plenty of people have a 100% power pip chance. This unfortunately includes balance, with their feared X rank judgement. Increasing it's max to 1400 (1675 with enchantment) to 1600 (1875 with enchantment) this could be quite problematic. But the 8 max pip could benefit both sides. I could use woolly mammoth and snow angel in combination. which would be pretty nice for me. And since balance doesn't really have something too similar to effectively combo, it could still be considered fair. But then theirs storm and fire. Fire gets a monstrous 2195 heck hound including enchantment, and storm gets 1635 tempest. But then i could counter with a nice 2800 frozen armor, and life gets a 3200 dryad. So while it might have seemed that i disagreed at first, in my opinion, it's fair enough.

Turn 8. Cast Sprite or Fairy (depending if you have one or two regular pips at this point, then spend one or two turns shielding) or a 14 pip spell
