As described, in game there are times when you will want to interrupt your own spell in order to cancel it (by setting off a trapped box) It seems you can't do this for spellweaving, chivalry, or Mysticism spells.(you can for necromancy and magery), not sure about ninjitsu.
I tell you the truth, tis better to do 10 damage on the right target than 100 damage on the wrong target.

    I should perhaps explain further,
    some spells take a long time to cast, especially spell weaving spells like word of death and essence of wind (especially if you don’t have faster casting 4) and you cast the spell and in that time a lot can happen, you may need to stop casting and heal someone. Or in the case of essence of wind which is not a target spell, quite often the target has moved out of range during the spell casting period so continuing the cast is a waste of time and mana. 

    I have not experienced any issue with this for chivalry spells as they all have a fairly fast casting time. 

    I imagine there may be some other work around to cancel a spell during casting that someone may know of. I’m interested to hear practical suggestions from players,

    Also for mysticism, if you start casting a new heal stone or spell trigger, and I see it.
    I could x field someone by the time they've finished casting.

    An explicit action "cancel in progress spell cast" should be added.  This would help when you get hit with blood oath in the middle of casting a spell against the same target.

    The ability to use trapped boxes to break paralysis should be removed from the game.

    “That should not be necessary, I’m not at my pc right now, but I’m pretty sure being hit with blood oath mid cast will disturb concentration anyway. And if you’re under protection or casting focus, simply don’t release the spell when the target cursor appears  (if you have your spells to auto target on EC that is user choice)

    just fixing current bug will suffice, no extra features”

    Not really.  Earthquake, Wither, Thunderstorm, etc, do not involve a target cursor.  Separate from that, with EC, you can have spells activate without seeing a target cursor.

    With magery spells, sometimes you can cause the spell to fizzle by equipping a non-SC weapon.  Still not a real fix.

    Relying on the behavior of trapped boxes is strange.
