Cure CandyJust faces and captions... As well as not being an example?

Motion to pull.Unless I got my memory mixed up, there used to be a graph-thingy there...? Though I'm not so sure.
Cure CandySeconding motion. Looking at the edit history I dont see there being another image there these two were added semi recently. We could probably easily make one. Warrior having a steady incline in DPS leveling up while the Wizard having a ton of ups as new spells are learned at set levels say 3 times once at 10, 30 and 50 then capping off with a slow incline to level 99. The warrior would surpass the wizard at like level 70 and continue gaining ground.

I see the Awesomeness.Thirding. I also think the description is getting a little long in the tooth. Probably should shift some of it over to Analysis (generally a good idea whenever paragraphs start with "wish fulfillment").

Trolling SwordsmanWe need to draw this one out probably. Most likely a table of what a Level 1 Fighter can do vs. a Level 1 Wizard, and then a Level 10 Wizard against a Level 10 Fighter.

Cure CandyThats not the way most examples go though. Wizards gain their stuff at set intervals in which they get stronger they dont actually get stronger anywhere else (like a step ladder). Then Wizards stop and only gain stats and Warriors get their Infinity Plus One Weapon s and the process reverses. Unless i am misreading the trope.

A pocketful of saudade.I don't understand. Consulting the article: "Melee classes gain power as they level up at a linear rate. Magic users gain power as they level up quadratically." Laconic: "Magical starts weaker than Physical, but outclasses everything else later in the game." That's why the melee is "linear" and wizards "quadratic, " so I use a linear equation for the melee and a quadratic one for the wizard. But I'll try to digest the information again.

$50 a day, plus expensesWell, the two are not mutually exclusive. The idea is, as mentioned, warriors start off more powerful than wizards. But as they gain in levels, the wizard gains power quadratically, while the Warrior gains power lineally. (Lineally? Linearally?) So eventually the wizard outpaces the warrior, and rapidly outpaces the warrior. EDIT: The graph is a bit simple, but I think it gets the point across.

Don't take life too seriously. It's only a temporary situation.
I see the Awesomeness.Essentially, the growth between levels as you get higher gets larger as you level if you're a magic user. You just stack bonuses as a melee fighter. I'd change it from "War Gods" to "Flame spewing apocalypse in human form."

A pocketful of saudade.I think the idea is physical classes level up at a steady pace, whereas magical ones level up at a pace that accelerates. Which is to say, Linear Warriors, Quadratic Wizards.
ZzzzzzzzzzThe graph works really well for me. Yes, technically, it should be sort of a stairstep line for the wizards, rather than a smooth upwards curve, but it's close enough.
Half the work on any project is done the week before the deadline. The other half is done the week after.
Brother of FavioI like the graph one

Anime-ted"If by 'War Gods', you mean 'Flame spewing apocalypse in human form', then yeah."
A pocketful of saudade.Better. Changed it. EDIT: Up and tagged. Will wait for a while if there's any objection.

Noone's objecting, so this should be locked, right?
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
