The old RK-aspd problem has been diverted to RGs, I guess....
I kind of understand when the RKs said that Runes are limiting. Whil e we get to have powerful skills that does not require any form of catalyst other than SP(excluding Piety and its 2 Holy Waters requirement). I guess that alone makes it fair. Besides we already have a skill that increases ATK by so much that giving us the same aspd as the RKs would make us more offensive, as said by the rest.
Isn't Banishing Point getting additional Damage from AGI?? Having that said, Banded RGs can still dish out some powerful BPs even though it's range is almost half of Spear Boomerang's. And another thing, maxing SQ still has its merit in OB damage, plus the added flee and crit.
