We could say that about all magic teachers actually.
I don't care why someone does not teach and does not log in. I bet he could have been back to normal if he urged to, but obviously this does not have a high priority.
He is inactive as a magic teacher for whatever reason. (Oh, and it's not that he was really very active before becoming a statue of whatever spice)
As far as I know Silas and Ava teach, Silas just finished with students as I know.
Silas Farron was not logged in since 34 days -- he's probably a statue made of pepper standing somewhere on Greenbriar. And therefore it's perfectly fine that he doesn't teach
I have no idea what happened to Athian. I was told that Duncan teaches.
Athian didn't log in for a long time, however he logged in the day before yesterday. I wonder what made him, probably one of his students spammed his msn or something.
The very same thing holds for Duchan.
And if I remember correctly, PO Samantha was chased out by the staff.
You must be mistaken. PO Sam left Illarion by his own will, after the giantic house that Sam half legaly owned burned down by an "accident" and she was offered to pay just 1/3 of the reconstruction work which still would have left her the richest character in game.
If that is "chase out", well, maybe you're right. However, I don't think so.
BTW: Sam didn't teach for a long time previous to that incident because she somehow tried to blackmail the staff to change the magic system. As long as we don't change it, she said, she would stop teaching. I think that the truth should be mentioned somewhere.
So why not try again?
The "real"-experiment has shown that this system does not really work; it frustrates a lot of people (mind you -- those among the students who were so frustrated to leave Illarion didn't say anything because they left Illarion. Only those NOT being too frustrated are able to say that they're not too frutstrated...)
Edit: Opps, I forgot poor Dji who died ig. >.< Sorry Dji, didn't mean to forget you.
I didn't forget about him.
But actually, you see, statistics say that there is a HUGE drop out rate.
