yes. Ill rant a bit, need to blow of steam.
before the rant, Ill just say that the 1 quest I ran (culvert or something) was not bad at all. I mean, it was mostly just hack and slash, no thinking needed but still, not bad. the tree system is very very good - i.e. the system itself is nicely done, thank you devs.
1. Map size. way way way too big. (Almost) no one cares about a huge explore area. it just wastes time from having fun. I used to play SWG and one of the reasons I loved DDO when I started was how fast it was to get to quests (relatively speaking). The last 2 expansion packs have changed that. I HATE that it takes so much time, yes, even if you know the way. HATE IT. (Add some expletives of your choice here)
2. killing FvS healers. this was talked about and talked about on the lam forums. and of course, it went live just as it was for the pre pre pre pre alpha "this is just a preview and things will change with your feedback" alpha.
3. Assassin pre. killing assassin scroll healing capabilities. Can I waste another 5 AP just getting to open Scroll Mastery on mechanic? Yes. But can I? no. Not unless I want to gimp myself. Instead of those useless, useless, stupid DC based poison attacks, that no one will ever bother with, they should have given the UMD, scroll using assassins, the option for mastery. My scroll healing is now horrible.
4. Shadowfell affect. For the first 5 seconds it's cool. no really. Then it becomes SO DARN ANNOYING. I want to claw out my eyes and ears. It just goes on and on. At least the Underdark gave you goggles.
I know the devs really tried hard to give us a good product, but do they even play this game? I am all for change, I think its good to shake things up. I love new options. but destroying things we love is detrimental.
