Seems to me like every aspect of the game is becoming extremely toned down, making things that once required skill and well planned tactics a thing of the past. Pvming you can pair a sampire with a disco mage and take anything in the game down. Crafting.. lol does anyone even use the runic hammers to craft anything they're planning on using? Maybe a valorite hammer but anything else is subject to being broken apart for imbuing resources. Mining ore/gems/granite/etc... hello? are you there? *Player sacred journeys* off to the next unattended spot!!! Pvp.. Spell Plague anyone? Or better yet cross healing now a days. Before it was a rule you got your own cure so you could receive a cross heal from your team mates.(that's just one example there's many other things) Things required timing and observation of wtf's going on around you. Now you have 2 people cast cleansing winds in a party and the ENTIRE party is full life. Lots of skill and timing there. There's a ton more to talk about in each aspect of the game, but I don't want to rant more on everything more then I already have. I for one am losing interest in the simplicity of things.
