Which mobs are too weak, which are too strong? And why?

Which mobs don't make sense in which areas? And why?

I spent an hour or so gaining gold to buy basic skills and armor by killing rats. When I ventured north of ratling run, a thief stole all my gold. May be intended, but with the new leveling difficulty and starting with literally nothing, losing an hours work for simply walking into a screen feels like a problem.

Also, west of Leinster the faeries don’t heal or bless you if they are grouped with non-faery NPCs. Not a problem necessarily, but annoying when you’re a warrior with no access to heals (healing thorns doesn’t do anything for elemental warrior).

Currently nothing drops gold, and whether that stays that way or not, the intent is for thieves to be able to drop stolen gold back.

Additionally, we're working on a progressive quest line which will teach new players game mechanics and specifically have a quest set up to give them a pouch and teach them they can store their gold in it.

Please remember that you currently can't put gold in pouches on this server.

This is obviously not intended either.

Once gold can be stored somewhere, that will be fine, but currently doesn’t work. Also, the point was that the thieves are 1 screen removed from rats so if you accidentally wonder into the zone, which is too difficult to kill at level 3, you’re going to risk loss of that work. I recommend moving them further from ratling run.

How should damage from a "dark" perm appear in the combat log? I see the "holy" perm proc occasionally, like it would from the "Holy Steel" spell, but I can't figure out if the "dark" perm is working.

I can't find anywhere to buy throwing daggers. May just be that I haven't found them yet, though I've been through every weapon shop in Leinster. Haven't looked in Kurz yet, but all that stuff looked like it was just higher level versions of what was in Leinster when I was in Kurz before.

Is trading items between toons forbidden? That doesn't work, if it was meant to, and it's very frustrating splitting loot in the combat cloud when grouped.

Armor/AR doesn't seem to work either. I take the same damage no matter what class of armor I'm wearing it seems.

Regeneration potions don't seem to work. I haven't noticed any increase in health regeneration when I use them.

Mana orbs can't be recharged if they were intended to be. Dropped mine on the floor trying.

Good mobs grouping with evil mobs doesn't make sense, since you asked.
