    Thanks you, it will be a gift for later, than.

    Yeah. You can spend more than just your gains from Sacrifice. Get out of the headspace of zero net expenditures if you want to make sense of this stuff.

    Perhaps try algebra, because unless you think n + 1 is equal to 1 at any value of n other than 0, it should not be difficult to see how being able to do a thing to spend more Mana than usual breaks a standard limitation of your magical ability's safe practice.
    I have been specifically discussing small animal sacrifice, a practice which yields 1 Mana. As I said before, 1 !> 1. Now as for a human sacrifice, since a human normally has 7 Integrity and thus yields 7 Mana, does human sacrifice suddenly become non-hubristic at Gnosis 7, since at that point you're only channel the normal possible amount of Mana? This seems foolish, but it's the direct logical consequence of stating that sacrifice is hubristic because it allows the breaking of normal Mana channeling limits.

    So is destroying a soul as a sacrament. That doesn't change the fact that it's a thing that allows you to exceed safe limits at the risk of your ability to contain and control your magic in the long term. "It's niche" doesn't act as a counter to anything about "you're cracking your soul open a little to let you do better at magic" as a response to "what is it about killing things for magic juice that damages your ability to control your magic?"

    How often do you ritually sacrifice animals for mana in situations where you couldn't take an extra turn to spend one more mana?
    About as often as I find myself needing to Reach beyond my normal means and minimize Paradox. Ideally that's not often, but the resource-juggling game of 2e operates under a framework where most of the innate problems it offers are for when you're stretched thin and have limited access to ideal casting circumstances for your desired outcome. The limit-breaker effect as presented is more immediately useful for human sacrifice, but the Mana you get has the same benefit regardless of source.
