i dont like skill points being out of the player's hands. building character trees with skills and stats are a big part of games like this for me. even if there are few ways to build a character correctly anyway, i still feel i have more control, customizing my character. right now it seems like i only control a couple spells that i use, not knowing how much damage they do or if they might turn obsolete as the game continues further on.
the equipment is awesome. crafting is awesome. i imagine when gems come into play the customization i spoke of, above, will get more into detail. does anyone know if there will be NPCs for hire, like in D2? and if so, will they get to wear EQ?
ive played through with the wiz and the de so far. overall im satisfied.
