Does everyone like the changees that much? Because thus far all I have seen (monte cook aside) are people saying good things about it. But I don't like it. Maybe its the fact that wizards always held a dear place in my heart, and they got neutered. Or perhaps its that I always liked being able to move and full attack everyone round, thank you haste. I understand that the changes were needed, but I'm curious if they thought about what they were doing, or playtested. If they did then it brings a question to my mind, why did they feel the need to screw over epic level wizards? You're still so-so at lower levels, not nearly where you used to be as far as power level, but so-so. Yes, wizards used to be the most powerful things out there, but isn't that the whole point of the class? You're the most powerful thing out there, but if something starts meleeing you you're pretty well screwed?
I really am curious if I am alone in disliking most of the changes (I do like the ranger changes, though it's still not an awesome class, now its playable) because I for one can honestly say that these changes disgust me, and I think they weren't trying to "balance" everything, they were neutering wizards.
