I do think giving most if not all the cast hit confirms would help balance the game considerably as well.
Honestly, they still don't render lv. 2/3's obsolete by any stretch and I feel like landing lv. 1's without hit confirms is so damn hard it's all but rendered most people who can't do it with useless lv. 1's.
Sanity is a one trick pony, all you get with it is rational thought, but with crazy the sky's the limit.
