I know players think it's a bit .....off.... Until Necromancer...and I think the abilities within Necromancer shine when you toggle to Spellcaster lean (Though, Necromancer is bugged. The ele comp part randomly gets reduced from 1.832 to 1.6-something and the fire/ice from 1.4 to 1.3...and you have to switch out and switch back in)
But this had me thinking about the Lean as a whole.
I think the current iteration doesn't make sense. You do 0.8 Offense, Take 1.25 defense, and you get a random boost to an element, *usually* to the element that is your best defensive resistance... So they want you to fight darkness monsters, that have good darkness resistance... cancelling out the ele comp either completely, or somewhat...and if you fight a monster what's weak to your ele comped element, you will do more damage but you will get bombed.
I find this system undesireable unless you're reliably inflicting paralyze-like effects.
So what if..
The Lean's offense and defense stays the same..
But you get a X1.25 to all spells. And THEN you get the ele comp boost to your defensive element of X1.4656...making it the same 1.832.
Or what would you do? Or do you think it's fine? Should there be a further decrease to offense and further decrease to defense?
And should there be a "beastmaster" lean that kind of does similar things? Boosted pet/guest damage by default? Further decrease to offense, further decrease to defense?
