    ...what thought process does it take to create an impression where that seems like a good idea?
    1206 was initially meant to be a Savant spell, which, aside from general laziness, is why they left such an easy to implement hole open in the monk spell list for 6 years. That is, in case they wanted to change it to something else when Savants were implemented. Since Savants were officially stated as not being implemented in 2016, I had been pushing (see the mental spell list forum and the monk forum on the officials) for the spells to be implemented, 1206 included.

    I made the case for 1206 that bolting was not only viable as a post cap option, but as viable a path as say, ranged weapons, thrown, or to a lesser extent (since it's built in with good costs), TWC Edged for a Monk.

    With the addition of a variable cost 6-10 mana high DF bolting spell, you not only have the spirit bolting spells available, but a solid low to medium mana bolt spell available that opens up an avenue that is otherwise closed with just the completion of a single spell.

    It's a solid addition to a class that many felt and feel is completely one dimensional and shoehorned into a training path.

    "We have implemented 550, Major Elemental Summoning. This spell draws on the caster's MOC, Dodge, and CM abilities to summon a thing. The baseline is 2x in each skill. Oh this spell isn't designed for wizards (the only class who can natively cast the 500s), we expect that warriors, monks and rogues will cast it from scrolls or maybe merchant event trinkets."

    You take a deep breath and focus inward, raising a hand and quietly murmuring the words of the Telekinesis spell...
    Your spell is ready.
    You gesture at a rabid squirrel.
    You levitate a tightly packed ball of snow at a rabid squirrel!
    AS: +24 vs DS: +7 with AvD: +52 + d100 roll: +87 = +156
    ... and hit for 69 points of damage!
    Hard blow to abdomen looks painful!
    The rabid squirrel twitches its tail one last time and dies.
    Cast Roundtime 3 Seconds.

    You levitate a thick frosted glass mug at a rolton!
    AS: +41 vs DS: -5 with AvD: +52 + d100 roll: +28 = +126

    Weapon arm mangled horribly.
    The rolton collapses to the ground, emits a final bleat, and dies.

    After a few moments, you summon the frosted glass mug back to your hand.

    How much water lore did you need to get that AS?

    Simu troll game is on point in 2018.
    This is like a sitcom now.

    Customer: "Does this mean savants are finally coming?!"

    Audience: OohhhhHHHhhHHHhh!

    GM: No, this isn't a prelude to Savants. You still have a better chance of witnessing the rapture first before you see Savants.

    Audience: HAHAHAHAAHAHAHA

    Customer: But why was this spell implemented then if it isn't designed for the only class that can cast it natively?

    GM: Because someone might want to cast a rather weak bolt spell via a scroll.

    Audience: <laughter plus lots of clapping.>

    Two ways this plays out:

    1) savants are released

    2) simu trolling

    I don't have high hopes for monks to actually use this spell, because the Minor Mental is NOT exclusive to monks, even though most spells sure seem to be coded for monks.
