Wait what? That's news to me. I don't think I even saw discussion about trying this out.

If they're going to boost stats temporarily, then they need to provide pretty massive boosts -- like, +10 at least. But as Taha notes, INT and WIS don't really affect your damage, which is the key thing you want to be improving. DEX and STR might be helpful for finesse and prowess fighters, respectively...CON, I guess it depends on how many hitpoints you gain but I've generally felt (in other systems) that temporary hitpoints don't work too well.
