Tell me about it, but I will never understand this mentality though.It would be nice to give the non magical characters the ability to cleave through stone walls, rip apart plate armor with their bare hands, run up castle walls, and leap a hundred feet in the air to smack a passing dragon, but believe you me, there are many players who would gnash their teeth and stomp their feet at the idea of their "everyman Fighter" being turned into a "cartoon character".
Never no mind the fact that legendary heroes in real world myths do this sort of thing all the time. No swimming up a waterfall or making whole armies run in feat of you for you, Mr. Fighter man! Now get over there and pretend to be a threat to that 50' long magical fire lizard while I cast a trivial spell to do everything you cant!
Fighter: it's a fair cop.
Some players are happy that their mages can hurl fireballs, teleport, and other abilities.
I am okay with a fighter being as strong as Sif from MCU, I think that would work really well such that they can literally rag doll some monsters at higher levels and won't get turned into pink jello when smacked by a dragon.
The mage on the other hand will require some defensive magic not to be pulped.
