sure, not for everybody - but it would be fine for Mesphit (in my book daemons are as auto-aggressive as the cause harm to others), Chambara (teleporting sadistic witch, this screams blood magic) or Amukiki (fights to death, preferable the one of his enemy)

hey! I like chainsaws! can I have one for Vaelis?
Your stated goal is that abilities should always be usable
not exactly _always_ - but I see some issues with the current system. my lvl 1 druid has enough blue stuff for 2 nukes (maybe 3) and this feels too restricted, he's a fscking magician but cannot use magic regularly. later on (with 200+ pools) this is more relaxed, but I often restrict myself using skills as I'm not able to plan the next fill-up of the pools (okay, only a problem for the first couple of plays, but normally I don't replay many games). On normal difficulty bashing the family mercs with base attacks is doable, but it is not satisfying: I have a huge arsenal of really cool skills and cannot (or imagine I cannot) use them.
I don't know how to solve this, but I hope someone will cut the Gordian knot :)
