Re: Class Balance and Abilities

Mobs naturally use bash/kick/etc already so they don't spam spells. Are you really concerned about a low level ranger mob getting a 1-3 snake StS off on you? Dust devil is the most painful at low levels and its easily survivable without tons of endgame gear.

the brass falchion is still way too good and should be toned down. It rivals every other 1hander in the game and is soloable every boot. All of the weapons that got left behind really got... left behind. This is one of those half-finished things that really should be taken care of.

The mobs target by name so if you are fighting an elemental guardian for instance, and you bring in a fire elemental of your own they turn on your pets. You can't use movealone with them and when you try to toggle them off they start leaving the area so you can't scout without them.
