I've invested in wind mastery because of this issue, though I don't see that it has any effect. Anyone else experiencing this problem?
Yeah, I have a lot of the spell books, but I haven't noticed anything change because of them. Maybe the devs forgot to (or simply back-burner'ed) implementing these? Hopefully it'll be addressed in the next update. It's amazing to see even this much developed and implemented in such a short time!
Ailanthus, you need wind; the gray blocks with the 3 swirls.
Best way around this I've found so far (until they patch it) is try to set up wind blocks to get multipliers as much as possible. This is pretty annoying, but it kind of adds a different dynamic to the game.
