Frankly, I don’t care about that kind of stuff too much. It’s not gonna break the game if some high grade armor gives you the wrong bonuses. And in the vast majority of cases these things are easily fixed. We can still do this when the server is live. Sure, we’d all prefer this to be done before the server goes live, but if we can’t find this stuff in time it’s not the end of the world either.
At this time I’m much more interested in major bugs. E.g. repeatable server or client crashes, inaccessible areas, missing crucial NPCs and the like. When that’s all sorted out we can move on to the pesky little bugs.
And don’t delude yourself that we can balance the game out perfectly before we go live. This is super hard and requires a lot of time and first hand experience. It’s impossibly to do a priori. We’ll continue to gather your opinions on overpowered classes and skills and ultimately try to get the balance right.
