Following my later impulses of putting upside down the game and revising all its aspects (may be it would be less painful for me to go back to 2nd edition after all), I was wondering if it makes sense that the priests and wizards action cards are restricted by rank. I mean, why by rank and not by skill training? or why are they restricted at all? after all, close combat, support and ranged action cards does not have any restriction by rank or skill level (a part from a very few of them), and the additional difficulty appearing in the spell action card already imposes a limitation to the character.

Has anybody of you tried to remove this restriction? does any of you know or have a plausible explanation why this restriction is there while not in other action cards?

I would say its a lack of refinement in the system production and playtest questioning.  A general lack of "number" of cards for each rank seems to give the illusion that if you rank up that there are more powerful cards (yet, I do not know if this is true at all..as most tougher cards are offset by higher numbers of challenge dice, etc.)
