I'm starting to think that there really isn't an elegant way to just rework reactions. All the alternatives I've seen seem to be just overcomplicated. The preset idea in particular feels like a lot to ask a new player to manage, and they would have to start managing it right from the begining and keep fiddling with it as they level up and gain more abilities. It's just frontloading a lot of stuff. I doubt I'd be able to adequately manage all of that honestly, and I have a lot of experience with crpgs. Someone new to the genre, or even someone who just has less experience could easily get overwhelmed. But maybe I'm not the best person to be commenting on this issue. I've never had a problem with Solasta reactions and I don't think they need to be changed at all, so all this stuff just feels more like reinventing the wheel, but with corners.
