The Geomancer looks like a lot of fun. The teleporting ability would make him the most mobile character in the game (base plus this expansion). He wouldn't deal out as much damage as the RuneMaster or the Necromancer per se, but he could cause quite the punishment with the right weapon (with a lot of surge abilities).

Quellen has nice figure, but I don't like the fact the pose is different than on the picture. Both his abilities look pretty neat, especially if he is to play runemaster or geomancer.

It's nice that you can upgrade both the number and stats of summoned stones. Getting a lot of them will require quite a few actions though, so getting "as much as I can" probably won't be that good idea.

I'm not sure it will increase his ability so greatly as long as OL manages to rid of crucial stones.

The action deficit required by summoning stones may not be too inhibitory as every time one is summoned the geomancer can make an attack. 1 stamina to make a mini-skeleton that acts as an obstacle is pretty nice.

The geomancer seems to combine the board control aspects of the necromancer, as seen by his/her summoned stones, with increased abilities surrounding mobility and status effects but minus some of the direct damaging abilities of the runemaster and necromancer.

My biggest concern is whether or not the geomancer will be well balanced with the pre-existing conversion kit characters. Not to mention the high demands for stamina that class seems to require, possibly prohibiting the class to Quell or maybe Mad Carthos.

I missed the attack on summon thing. This is nice. Other characters might be little less effective as geomancers, but geomancer can hide behind wall of Stones to Rest. By sacrificing free fatigue recovery Quell has other characters still can use their feats and abilities to offset need to rest. We will have to see how it works out when we see all 10/11 geomancer cards.

I think they should have made boots another equipment type instead of having it as a trinket with restriction. They probably still wanted it to limit the amount trinkets you can have equipped, but still...
