    High elves have good magic and good arcane items.

    Yes, you're right. Mages can use only those dice they generate or the dice from the army pool.

    I don't have the book in front of me, but I'm betting that you have items that grant you more power dice. Isn't there a nice magic banner for that? Banner dice would add to the pool and be available to any wizard.

    Plus, bound spells offer cheap and reliable castings, often forcing an enemy to use dispel dice.

    I think that the new rules are a good idea as before people were giving their better casters more power dice by taking lesser casters who never tried to cast spells. Now, every caster in the army is at least trying to cast spells.

    With High Elves, if you want a particular mage to have more power dice that can still be done. You can give them the Jewel of the Dusk to give them an extra dice, and can use the ones from the army pool, which can itself be boosted by having the Banner of Sorcery in your army.

    I also like these changes, it only seems fair and natural. Nothing quite like a slann, and half a dozen skinks, who only live to pass on poewr dice to the slann, and provide LOS :=

    it balances out the magic system quite nicely in one feel swoop. IMO one of the best changes in 7th ed.

    oh, and btw Ancalagos, I just can't help myself:

    And yes, I know GW uses the wrong term for it, and it annoys me greatly, but what can I do but to educate the masses

    True I sometimes slip into calling a single die a "dice", and it annoys me when I do. (I'm a bit of a grammar lawyer. Something you'd expect from an english student, not engineering...)

    More recently, though, I've tended to say D6. (Or D-whatever if the various shaped polyhedral random number generator is not a cube )

    I agree. Taking Level 1s or 2s just to feed your archmage more power dice just doesn't seem right to me. I definitely think the new rules are fairer.

    not to be rude, but what are you whining about?
    2 lvl2's and a lvl4, you're considered magic heavy already!

    High Elves have the best magic in the game and can spread it around instead of throwing it into a fat frog who still randomly rolls for spells.
