Can we also include the option to make it snow?
Why is this even a spell? Why is it not just a druid feat for Lv6+ druids?
I mean, this should also probably be true for 6-9s.
With barkskins costing 500g for people not in factions, doing a quest isn't worth it. Even if the fronter takes all of the pay on a quest (which isn't viable, since the backers will get shot at some point and therefore require healing), at 180g per person, they can only buy one barkskin potion back.
Most of the drops on quests that I've seen are scrolls, which fronters can't use (unless they're a caster class, which has its own problems), and gear (which doesn't sell these days). The payout needs to be increased if you want people to be able to quest to restock on consumables for the DM quests.
