The last thing I want to do is impact server performance. I had no idea. Thanks for the info.

On the contrary, it might be very helpful, provided it's kept updated.

Thanks for this post! I'm a new player (I post this having started 3 days ago) and I've already found a lot of what you said to be true. I'm saving up wish shards for my MetaPrepa and a true Bag of Holding for my Gish :)

Personally - I thoroughly dislike the metaprep rod (and i know some agree with me for the same reasons).

If anyone in the party is in combat (regardless of distance) it will auto-slow cast, wasting spells and is a real pain in the backside for events.

I much prefer the Fastbuff Rod - you only need to be a certain distance from any fighting for it to work and, more importantly, if you're too close to combat it simply won't fire.

I had been planning to go for MetaPrepa because I'd used that mod for NWN2 OC and enjoyed it for buffing the whole party.

I think I understand conceptually that the buff storage works differently on fastbuff (spells target the fastbuff rod, which records them and cycles through metamagic variants each time a given buff is cast on it, vs. a "macro recorder" mode on MetaPrepa), but does fastbuff support having multiple targets for buffs? For example, if I have a high-level wizard and I want to buff both myself and my golem, can I support that with one fastbuff trigger? Or, if I can't, could I buy two fastbuff rods and have one rod hold buffs for my character and the other rod hold the companion buffs?

Absolutely, many players do. I actually have a FS who has four - three are for self: one for 24+ hr duration buffs, one for minutes/lvl, one for rounds/lvl, and the fourth is for companions and/or summons. Maybe that's a little too much for some players, but it is relatively common to at least have one for personal buffs and one for group buffs.
