My idea for a non mana Wiz system Only thing I can think of is Spell weaving. Where the wiz needs to build up her weave to cast higher tier spells. Once the Wizard has brought the weave to its max she can continue casting at a risk to her life or she can stop the weave and start a new one. Ex. The Wizard at first can only a cast tier one spell, after casting the tier one spell she can cast a tier 2 spell, then after that a tier 3 so on and so forth till she gets to the highest tier she can cast. After she casts the highest tier spell she can either: A: keep casting spells at a risk (say losing life or other nasty things). Each time she casts when the weave is at max there can be a bonus to damage. B: Stop the weave (aka flush the meter) and start from the beginning. When the weave is stoped there can be effect like an AOE blast or something This system will allow the Wizard to never physically attack anything unless she wants to. This system will also reinforce the “always keep attacking” idea for D3.
