For skills, I think that there could be a more player-friendly way of naming them. Tier x skills make the game a bit complicated and difficult to remember.

I suggest we rename them like this, starting from mark and going up:

-Mark
-Basic Skill
-Complex Skill
-Advanced Skill
-Champion Skill
Huh? I'm confused about why you think this is confusing. What problem does changing numbers (shorter and 100% obvious as to their order) to names (longer and more subjective) solve? Aside from requiring you to go back and change all the references to tier numbers, I don't see what the results of this would be.
Still, it's not a big deal, so I guess I don't have any objections if it's what others want.
TBH, it's been bugging me for a while. Not so much the things I listed in my post about it here, but mainly that it's so out of theme. I could have worded the original suggestion better. ^^;

I'd prefer keeping the "numbers" part if possible - it's easier to classify, IMHO. What about something like  "Glyphs", "Techniques/ Techs", or "Skill Levels"? That way you could add a number onto the end so you could refer to the level, but it sounds more RPG-ish.

In regards to the recent (Round 16) map change, I feel that some of the landmark locations need to be moved back for the 'Scrolls of the Prophecy' quest. The symmetry in all those locations was what enabled the quest to be so cool sounding when you look at it aesthetically:



The pink hexes mark the original locations of the Boat (unchanged), Oasis (hex 103 originally), and southern mountain (changed). All of the locations were also exactly four hexes (distance wise) away from the Omnitron's quest, and were in three different territory areas that could be contested between elements - as of now, one could easily reach the Oasis much faster than one would expect without being attacked (hopefully), but then again, I'm guessing more map changes will come anyway. All I'm asking is that for the purpose of this one quest, that those 'landmark' locations don't change, please SG? ^^;

Also, good move on the towns being removed - now elementals only need to travel to one specific place to train their skills/siege/trade/etc., which is good for simplicity purposes.

Ugh, thanks for making that map Kuro - I moved to 98, instead of 89, because I saw the mountain there.. gotta change that.

My vote: Put a Volcano where the Southern Mountain used to be! The Oasis can go back where it was, or have some new landmark thingy there too :P

Am I correct in concluding that all Elemental Mark skills were buffed from 2 to 3 upgrades, but the UW Mark remained unchanged at 1 upgrade to an Other card only?

It is yet to be decided what the relationship between UW skills and the ability to used upped cards will be, but I can say for certain that it's not going to be how it looks like now.

I was thinking something like this:

For each skill in UW, you get to use 1 upped 'Other' card
AND
For each 2 skills in UW, you get to use 1 upped card in ALL the elements

Something like that.

I increased the upped bonus from marks to 3 because I think it makes getting multiple marks suck less. I left UW mark at 1 upped card because it's in many situations, clearly the best of the 13.
