Agreed I'd be very happy if they did all of that - and made mage hand a mere cantrip again ;-)
Guess we'll get a sense from the new patch whether any of this has really been noted, or is likely to be addressed....fingers crossed.
It will be interesting to see what they give us at the Panel from Hell reveal this week. The fact that they’re bringing Jeremy Crawford in on the panel is interesting, he’s the principle rules designer for 5E at Wizards of the Coast. There must be some significance for asking him to join. It could be good news for those that want BG3 to be more in line with 5E?
Well... being the little pathetic sarcastic corporation hating person that I am, I would gess they paid him to praise how well they ported the 5e system into the digital realm since they hope it gives them the public relations to continue their narcist abhorrent corruption of it.
