Well, I didn't mean that shockamancers are unsophisticated in general, I was trying to envision a situation where a caster would level a lot without gaining particular sophistication and thus not advancing in class. That was just the first possibility that came to mind. Do you have a different possibility you think is better? Or do you think that situation is fundamentally impossible?
