Another limitation is to follow the informal rule, hinted at in the example, that for special spirits, one out of three abilities will be....challenging. That is one of the powers of the spirit ally in many cases will be a personality trait, and it will be AT LEAST as high as the other abilities. It is always augmenting you, and you have a friendship with this thing, so you are going to have to cope with its attitudes. So the more powerful an ally you obtain, the more troublesome it may be to have it as an ally. Which is great from a story perspective, but does make powerful allies not an unalloyed joy.

Finally, although spirits may be able to get more juice out of limited ratings compared to other kinds of magic, that low rating is still all that is there when they need an applicable magical defense.
