With Mirror Image, you shouldn't lose one every time they miss you - if the opponent rolls a '1', they didn't hit you and woulnd't have hit a duplicate either. It should be if they miss you, but would have hit you if you didn't have the extra AC, then a mirror image goes away (or somethin like that).

At some point for spell effects you have to stop adding sentences, srsly, 3rd and 3.5 still didnt learn that lesson for spell effects. Missing by auto fail is a miss just like a 9 vs an AC of 12, its not like natural one means by definition your attack = fail, it means it didn't deal damage.

Invis looks super toned down, and at about twice the spell level it used to be. Though there may be a daily version of invis earlier that is more powerful.

But a person who literally can't hit you except on an auto-hit (even without the mirror images) can make you lose all of your duplicates with no problem.

Yeah, I noticed Imp Invis, but wasn't sure what that 'sustain minor' thing means.

In the 4E primer, from the other thread: Each turn you get 1 each of three diff actions: standard, move, and minor. I assume minor sustain means the duration keeps running as long as you use your minor on it each turn.

I'm happy to see that invisibility and flying got toned down. And I wish I knew how the new spell system works. Level 10 spells? Level 16? I can guess it means that a caster of that level can cast them, but that's just a guess.

Really. Thunder damage. As if sonic wasn't descriptive enough.

Let's not forget necrotic. It's a type of damage now!
