This class is pretty darn cool. It reminds me both of Stoic and Arcane Blade.
One thing kind of sticks out to me though, and that's Petals. It feels weird that a Wild-Gift use Mag, but that's optional anyway.
Yeah, they do that with a few classes, heh. Think it used to happen with more (pretty sure at one point shortly after they were introduced, bulwarks would put them at like -2 or -3 or somethin'), but it still does with at least demonologists, as an example.
I'm thinking this is because of the combination of starting race and class stats. Sometimes if it adds up too high you either have less or won't have anything to spend at creation, and other times so much is added in that you'll spend a whole other level with no stat increase.
