Fair points, and I agree in all of them. i`ts just that I love the game otherwise, always dreamed of a isometric handcrafted background 3d inhabitant rpg with a good story and non linear play if wanted, d&d style.
I wish they had made the character tables very high to begin with, enough to last couple expansions, tweak and nerf/buff as expansions rolled out. And keep content last, but hey, there`s still time to fix. Hopefully more expansions will roll out and content to be balanced so that level cap can not be reached, it shouldnt be reached in the first place is my opinion. As it is RP character development should not cap, one never stops learning. As I have seen in other games you get really OP end game. It should really level out endgame as lvl cap disabled would do, ofc some talents would be cool aswell.
Also I miss a luck roll.
Speed runners and critical path players will always find their place even if it is a perfect (impossible) game.
