comment Heart of Water and grappling threats
@BESW I really have no specific criteria or scenarios in mind. I am just looking for an overall good way of dealing with grappling threats and in spite of various recommendations HoW seems quite lacking for this due to the action cost in an average situation. I will try to clarify that in the question.

@BESW Third Eye Freedom from Magic Item Compendium for instance.

comment Justice of Weald & Woe PrC and Fighter levels
I am well aware of the feats requiring fighter levels. Weapon spec. allows ranged/melee weapon mastery though which is a very common reason to try and get it in various builds.

comment Removing attack spells from Cantrips
@mike I think I understand your sentiments for keeping the casters from "spamming pew pew cantrips". It is worth noting however that in previous editions casters possessed powerfull (often over-powered) low-level spells that allowed for effective dealing with encounters using only one of them, such as Sleep, Grease, Chromatic spray etc. In Next those spells are significantly nerfed and by no means offer the same advantage they previously offered. Sleep for instance only has the potential to affect 3-4 level 1 creatures atm. It becomes almost unusable by level 2-3.

comment Do any of the pre-gens have daily powers?
It is worth noting at this point that thanks to careful design Next seems to be doing a pretty decent job in the balance aspect as well. Certainly better than earlier editions, though probably not as balanced as 4e due to system constraints.
