Feora1 only feels like she's on the downside because of how often fire rolls out. If you use her with her character jack you're looking at 2d pow 14 rolls which averages the damage rolls out to be around 20! talk about an infantry murderer x.x; Since her feat allows her to just instantly ignite everything within 12 inches of her on fire, she can really let loose on infantry spams, leveling 2/3rds of everything 1 boxed in her ctrl without a care to def. Feora2, however, protects that flame so that you ALWAYS get the roll, which is why everyone loves her concept, just not her game play. If Feora1 had that same ability, she'd be one of the more overpowered casters in the game. As for both Feora1 and Feora2, with a little bit of a survivability bonus on them, they'd really be top tier casters. Malekus has the ultimate feat for flame lists, but he doesn't have the HoJ or the spells to back it up, leaving him in dire need of a make over. Considering his current design and character beast, I think they should alter him away from fire and toss that awesome feat onto one of the Feoras. FFS, Feora is the Guardian and Protector of the flames yet some random has a better fire boosting feat than her!?
