Arcane Power Excerpts: Rituals (http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/4ex/20090316)

In today’s Arcane Power preview, we introduce a new set of feats -- including a close look at Unseen Servant, Guards and Wards, and Imprisonment.

Very cool. It's this kind of stuff that increases my low interest in in 4E, which is a good thing.

The ritual thing is interesting but I have yet to see one used in game.

that's why I like substituting the alchemist feat for the ritual caster.

I've already had the party assault a tower protected with Guards and Wards. And hated on the sight-rhyme that always made me want to pronounce "Wards" to rhyme with "Guards"...

Anyway, in my game it was a magic-trap based skill challenge.

Curious about the five healing surges though-

Good stuff to add to our list. We need more rituals. We're using at least one Ritual almost every session. Last week we used a "Binding Contract" ritual (GM created) between parties. We're hoping it doesn't backfire on us. This week we only used the floating disk ritual.

I can see Rituals becoming cornerstones or linchpins of many adventures.
