CMs are harder, mobs are hitting like trucks - can no longer solo a +5, which is a shame but I like it somehow.
Saalus is harder but I simply opted not to do it.
Saalus being harder + transcend event made Shards and Gems cost 3x more than they were costing 2 months ago though, so that’s a real shame.
Raids are still the same difficulty.
Class-wise people are complaining about SPR usage but I have to disagree here. Before patch I played all 4 classes, most notably Exo and Doppel, and SPR usage on doppel+Barb+X build dropped significantly, like I don’t have to spam pots every CD anymore, which is good. Mana usage for archer builds though, oh boy those were completely ravaged and I have to agree with those people if they’re all archers, but everything else is ok.
Again on class-wise, I like the new builds, somehow it feels more diverse now that we can only choose 3 than before when we could choose 10.
Overall I like the change but I still want something like Grifts to exist in this game so I can keep playing and farming it at my own pace, right now I feel like I’ll end up quitting the game for the 10th time again, but its w/e since I love its atmosphere and will come back to it later anyway in case I quit.
