While we're griping about spells, it would be nice if upgrading them was less of a bore. The only thing that ever changes is some numbers getting bigger. They behave the same at all levels, which contributes to the samey feeling one gets as they move up through game. Maybe the rapid fire spells could shoot multiple projectiles and things like ball lightning pierce a few enemies and the whips get longer and wider. Just something to make it feel like you're progressing in ways besides just numbers getting bigger. Leveling storm dash could let you cause air damage to anything you run into, perhaps becoming a small aoe around you as it gets higher.
E: use this to differentiate the spells. Forest rage can get extra projectiles while plasma bolt pierces and so on.
