Cleric casting while knocked down change thoughts

If it's no bug or an idea, but it's still mud-related, it goes here.

Cleric casting while knocked down change thoughts

So clerics can't cast while on the ground anymore. I think this is fair enough.

I think however that being knocked down should either cancel the material cast entirely (or just have a chance to cancel the cast entirely, but that's off track)

This would make flicking up a bit more streamlined since it won't stop you since you are 'busy casting' a miracle that's been effectively rendered impossible to finish

You are able to stop casting yourself but it can be cumbersome mid fight, which is something that needs to be balanced out of course.

In summary, I think knockdowns completely cancelling a miracle would be better for the game if casting on the ground while in combat isn't allowed for clerics anymore.

Only casting with needs gestures should not be possible,
the you char is lying on the ground.

I wish the miracle that you are casting would auto-cancel when you fall down, but it does add another challenge for clerics (who otherwise have it pretty good) to have to cancel it themselves before they can flick-up.

The miracle is mainly done by the deity, the cleric is in this case only the channel.
So it can many can work.

auto-cancelling on fall-down for the miracles that require gestures at least would be nice and streamlined but yeah, it's not too difficult to do it.

i recently did it in some pvp and if you're paying attention it's not really a hindrance
