    I believe the issue is reflexive clash charms; if it's purely attacker declares/defender declares with no exceptions for reflexive clashes then you basically have to throw a full excellency into every attack you ever make against someone with Fervent Blow, since if you don't commit 100% to a given attack they can respond with a fully pumped reflexive clash, and since you can't then go back and add an excellency yourself they're effectively get an autohitting decisive attack with bonus damage....

    I don't know how many more ways I can point out that it doesn't create a reflexive shape sorcery action and I specifically said multiple times that it doesn't create a shape sorcery action, but it does in fact give you a bunch of sorcerous motes reflexively which is like getting a reflexive shape sorcery action. This charm and others like it are not actually ambiguous at all; they do exactly what they say: as part of using the charm you make a roll, and that roll has a free excellency on it. Seven Thunders Voice is a simple charm that makes an attack using Charisma + Performance with a free full...

    Have you read the charm?

    "Roll a free full Occult Excellency of the Solar’s
    (Perception + Occult); successes on this roll determine
    how many motes the Solar is able to gather. These motes
    may only be used to power Charms from Craft, Investigation,
    Medicine, Lore, and Occult, or added to the mote
    total of a shaping action by the Solar."

    It is not a generic free excellency charm. It doesn't even look like a generic free excellency charm. It reflexively gives you a bunch of free motes you can then spend on activating other charms,...

    Supernal Control is a free excellency, and that is all. It does not create a new action. Spirit-Drawing Oculus is a reflexive action with a full excellency attached. It effectively grants you an extra shape sorcery action as well as a mote discount....

    Supernal Control lets you enhance a shape sorcery action with a full excellency for free. Spirit-Drawing Oculus is a reflexive full excellency worth of sorcerous motes....

    Six Eternities' Travail is pretty mediocre for a sorcery-boosting charm, but Spirit-Drawing Oculus is a hugely powerful E5 capstone for Solar occult. Reflexively getting to throw 20+ dice towards an ongoing shape sorcery action once per day for very little cost (other than the admittedly painful requirement of flaring your anima first) puts supernal occult way out in front of everything save perhaps larceny, and Fate-Shifting Solar Arete making larceny supernals better than everyone else at their own jobs is indicative of a problem with FSSA, not with every other charm tree....

    Looking at sorcery as simply a matter of how many mechanical perks you get for 8xp is missing the point. Exalted isn't a game that wants everything to be balanced in a vacuum, it uses social and conceptual limitations on effects as a balancing mechanism for a lot of things. So yes, sorcery is stronger for the experience cost than other things, and having a flock of tyrant lizards or twenty five thousand loyal soldiers is a stronger way to spend your merit dots/BP than any other options, and none of that really matters because the system doesn't care about who's swinging around the biggest charop...

    Question that just came up in a game - what happens if you disguise yourself as the summoner of a demon? Can the demon tell that you're not really the person who summoned it, and if it can't tell, would its defining tie apply to you as well so you can give it orders or is it some special magical compulsion that only ever ties summoner and slave?
