Understood. Nothing is in isolation. EQ is largely about powerflow, between mobs vs players and between players. Balancing is always hard and frankly it's unrealistic to expect it to ever be perfectly in balance! I'm simply presenting some of the consequences of these changes. Edit: Putting it another way, changes have to happen to balance classes, but in doing so it has knock on effects. Melee get pummelled more so now than ever before, largely as a consequence of mob power gains vs tanks. We need better avoidance ourselves. Well that and some is just plain odd. More data required, but it's looking like druids can take a beating better than beastlords. What's going on there?
