Yeah, it's always fun playing with some guys online who only smack the enemy, but never bother to diffuse the healing circle. I'd do it myself, but I always play as Mirania, when there are enough figthers. And mages can't diffuse magic.

Or melee fighters who are just too stupid to run into the healing circle. Come on! I'm throwing the thing at you, to heal you. Don't run away, stupid!
As for the casting: When I first played I was guilty of this, too. Because I didn't know how to cast. >.> (I was at chapter 17 or 18 and didn'T control a spellcaster yet.) So I tried to press some random buttons and one minute later I figured out how to cast. That was a relief. Really. However, can Mirania and Calista cast a healing circle? Do you know by any chance?
Lucky me I didn't met a spellcaster who only goes for melee. But I really consider to give my mages some potent weapons, because the daggers are just plain BAD, when an enemy is pummeling and can't cast a spell. On the other hand, only daggers raise magical damage output, so that would be a really bad idea. There is equipment with good physical damage and some magic, but it's just not enough.
You know what's also fun? A jerk who dies on ourpose, so his ghost can spam others with banana peels, so they trip without end, until YOU die or time runs out. Ugh...
