So far I am enjoying the nostalgia. Running a hitter atm, but will be testing out all the different classes as time goes on. I am not a fan of Old Leinster, probably just because it has been so long since I've seen it that I grew accustomed to WL/EL.
The equipment dropping with chants vs using wizards to chant items is something I like a lot. I do think there needs to be more variety though, such as cloth/leather/troll leather etc dropping as such vs just this iron stuff. Good idea and start however.
I like the mana vs mana crystals aspect. I always hated the change to MCs and I like it going back to how it used to work.
Definitely need more magic rings/ammys dropping. 15 levels in and I've yet to see one. I did finally get a robe after deciding to kill pixies since I hadn't done so yet.
All in all it feels good, yes the leveling and xp is low and slow but when f12 is on it goes by at a good clip. There's 100 levels possible and I managed 15 and probably could have done 20 easily within the little bit of time I played.
