Well I know there are a lot of gloom and doom type posts out there, I will personally wait until I have played with it a couple weeks before I render judgement.
That said there is one thing that this update has done and that is bring the forums back to life. I haven't seen posting this active since pre-MOTU. It's kind of exciting!
On a side note has anyone played around much with the archery stuff. I have an 18 Rogue/1Wiz/1Ranger Arcane Archer Assassin build that I was starting to really enjoy. Is 1 level of ranger going to be enough to grab some of that deepwood sniper stuff?
