After years and years of replaying and beating the game half a dozen times, this really annoys me. For a final class its extremely weak. I really like the look of fireball 2 when enemy Bishops use it too.

Is there any rebalancing hacks out there to make the game more difficult/balanced?

Well looks like the Bishop got a slight bump in stats, at least on the enemy side. I guess I'll have to play to find out how much more difficult the game is.

Bishops on both side got the same upgraded stats. Consequently, enemy Bishops got a boost, including to their troops bonuses. So it should be much harder to clear out the 1st scene.

Bishop promote to Saint, but the experience bar is shortened.

Did you check out the promotion trees before changing her to a bishop?
I mean, why promote Mina to a bishop instead of a Wizard, so she can get Ranger...?
Better question, why promote Mina to a warlock instead of a priest? High Priestess and Saint are some of the best classes in the game; High Priestess for her healing 3 and uber defensive powers, and Saint for her uber offensive powers and + 9A + 4D to her troops...

Better than anything the guys have.

What if you want to play offensively? You can get to Archmage very quickly. Priestess takes a very long to level.

Bishop was an end-game class, but her stats are very weak compared to other end-game classes. So this provides another path to get Saint.

Not yet, where are they listed?

So I'm playing Amuseum's hack, and I got Mina to level 9 Bishop. However when I max the bar, she just keeps resetting to level 9 Bishop. Was this intended? In your comment it looked like Bishop promoted to Saint.

Also I must say damn. With the slower leveling, and the upgrade to Bishops and Archmages, Dalsis spellcasters are something to actually fear.
