True, but that's one of the reasons why magic beats the everliving hell out of melee. They can do effects that are auto-win and melee sits there with a stupid look on their face. Magic beats Melee and most Magic requires Magic to break it. I believe it has been said before and might very well be said after this; "Melee should have nice things too."
IHS is a little wonky. I think they wrote it with the impression that the DM is sane and won't allow the "My condition about not being level 20 is hurting me. I wish to end that."
