The witches' main damaging offensive spell, Mother Feelbright's Busy Bees, has been largely re-written to remove its reliance upon the fighting skill, fighting.range.thrown.

In short, your ability to damage a victim is no longer dependent upon hitting them with a gob of honey.

It is now a purely magical spell, relying upon your ability to summon and control a swarm of bees.

In addition to this:

* The skills crafts.pottery.forming.shaping and magic.methods.elemental.air have been replaced with magic.methods.mental.channeling and magic.methods.mental.cursing.

* Victims no longer try to run away from the swarm of bees.

* The guild point cost of the spell has been reduced from 75 to 60.

This is not a complete list - there are a lot more features and changes being introduced than I have mentioned.

I do offer the following pieces of advice, though:

* Be careful with the amount of honey you try to use when casting. If you use too much, you could be in for a nasty surprise.

* Be careful when trying to cast on a victim that you (or another witch) has already cast on for the same reason.

Happy bee-ing!
