I know, I know. The patch has been out an hour. You probably haven't even had a chance to play yet or draw any conclusions, but I just wanted to get an initial reaction from people. What are your gut reactions to the changes they've implemented? Do you think it will be enough to lure those on the fence and bring back some people?
Personally, I'm unbelievably satistfied with the update. Item Sort is fantastic. Selling items is MUCH faster. Larger inventory and retainer inventory is great. Removal of +1/+2 items also helps. Streamlined crafting is unbelievably awesome (in comparison to what it was). Increased accuracy MIGHT be a tad overboard currently and I can see that being readjusted, but it is still a welcome change. SP improvements also seem to be a bit extreme, but I would much rather see 1-200sp a pop than the common 0-50 I see now. Also, having them appear exactly like physical xp is just so much more rewarding. I ALWAYS get SP in a battle now. It isn't random! Separate chat filters! Imrpoved UI! Improved menu setups! I mean, the list of things they actually imrpoved is... well... what they told us it would be. And for SE, that is an enormous step in the right direction.
So what does everyone else think initially?
