    Default word confusion

    Lifebound Veil
    Lifegiving Veil

    Causes cognitive confusion.

    The enduring question is which one does what? Is the problem with the first word of the compound? Or is the cognitive confusion caused by the term Veil?

    A simple fix

    Boundlife
    Givinglife

    What do you think?

    I have like less than 24 hours played on my mage, but I don't find the two confusing. I've learned in Rift to not take names at face value (See: Warrior healing, Mage tanking, etc). Read the tooltips and learn what the abilities do, don't rely on the name to tell you what they do.

    There is no confusion unless you're not reading what spells actually do.

    Theres nothing like missing the point entirely.

    My point is the words themselves.

    The compound words begin the same and end the same (ie life and veil).

    Another example, just to make my point.

    Earthdrag Stomp
    Earthholding Stomp

    since you never need to cast Lifebound Veil yourself, because it's auto-applied to yourself if you cast Synthesis on any target, you don't really need to think about it.

    so... no need for confusion
